I read the first collection of THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP. Nothing special in the story dept., just another wannabe "second MS. MARVEL," but the heroine uses krav maga to defeat a big lady wrestler-villain.

I noticed I don't have a heading for "She-Hulk," so here's a nice scene of her clouting her perpetual adversary Titania.

ANGEL AND THE APE was a short-lived DC feature that teamed up Angel O'Day-- a hot, martially-trained blonde-- with Sam Simeon, an intelligent but inarticulate ape. The series was never as funny as its writer thought it was, but the art by Bob Oskner retains a trippy charm.
