After a lot of agonizing, I finally decided to add Beatriz Bonilla Da(Corvalho)Costa (Green Fury – Green Flame – Fire) to my list of "Green" comic book heroes. The reason I agonized is because, unlike the other heroes on my list, Bea is no longer “Green” -– that is, she started off as a hero with “Green” in her name, but she is no longer named that way (unlike, for example, Green Ghost, who didn’t start off “Green” but is “Green” now). However, I figure she was “Green” long enough to qualify. Besides, it’s nice to add a woman to the list. Heck, I even added her (as the Green Fury) to my blog banner!
Believe it or not, Bea actually made her debute in the original Superfriends comic book (issue #25, 1979). Originally called the Green Fury, Bea’s powers were primarily due to her breathing a mystical green flame. She could even fly by shooting flames through her nose. Eek!
Thank goodness her powers have evolved to become much less embarrassing!
Anyway, Fire is on the list now. If anyone runs across any other "Green" heroes -- past or present -- that belong on the list, let me know!
