Any Molls Strong Enough To Be On Their Own?

Post by Yellow Oval » Fri Mar 06, 2015 5:23 pm

I was wondering if anyone thought any moll or molls could have carried on their own against the Dynamic Duo? For my money, I think Chandell's 3 assistants could have done quite well as 'The Norne' naming themselves after the mythical three sisters. They definitely had charm, talent, looks, and ruthlessness that they would've been quite formidable in using against their enemies. If anything, I love to watch that episode just to watch them. 8-)

Lady Prudence. She was cunning, wise beyond her years, and could run a crew of her own, if she had the chance. She was one of the rare molls that was more interesting than the main villain. She would have been that strong counter to Robin (thanks to her interest in him), sort of falling between the Catwoman treatment of Batman between her first & second appearances.

Pussycat was another strong moll, and her open disrespect of law enforcement (never breaking down after her arrest) suggested she had potential. Catwoman potential is anyone's guess, but she was sly, and arrogant right up to her interrogation.

One of them (Sivi Aberg) though wearing a bikini and helping the Joker become a surfing champion was much more important. :lol:

Nancy Kovack's Queenie could have been a formidable threat all by herself (insomuch as Nancy could easily have been a villainess in the Marsha-Siren type mold).

After the window jump from the Commissioner's office, I always thought Blaze would have been an intriguing character to explore in her own right.

Blaze was the first person I thought of when I saw this thread. False Face is one of my favourites.

Oakie Annie from Shame's gang was always big with me, even though I haven't seen that episode in years. Mostly, I was impressed by how she was one of the only women on the show who could carry a gun.

The other, of course, was Shame's girl Calamity Jan. Those two should really team up after kicking Shame to the curb. :P

I could've seen Molly taking over the Mole-Hill Mob! She was never as subornant or adoring to the Riddler as say Pauline. They should've brought her back, masked, then Batman could've been shocked when it dropped off. Much like he had been with Catwoman in the movie.

My stupid theory (which I may or may not use for fanfiction...) is that Molly gained superpowers from the incident, spent a handful of years putting herself together from the atomic level, and was eventually reborn as a certain venomous vixen of vines...

Ultimately, Molly broke the second she lost an advantage (a functioning gun). Her fear under critical situations would not inspire loyalty in henchmen.

Can't argue that. If I was Batman in that surfing episode Undine would have been my Undoing! Hey, look at those 'Uns' and there was no p-UN intended! Oh man, I did it again! I gotta stop. I'm killing myself! This is UNbelievable! ENOUGH!!! :lol:

King Tut's moll was quite antagonistic toward Batman, but I just discovered her recent story off screen. Doesn't sound like acting a villain would've been too tough for her! ;)

(Credited as Angela Dorian, real name Victoria Vetri, became Victoria Rathgeb by marriage.)

Vetri was charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting Rathgeb from close range inside the Hollywood apartment they were then sharing after an argument on Saturday, October 16, 2010.[6] The Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood Division arrested Vetri the same day, and she was jailed on $1.53 million bail, which the judge refused to reduce, pending trial. In January of 2011, the same judge denied her attorney's request for a reduction of the charge of attempted murder, and she was ordered to stand trial on that charge.[7]

However, between January and September of 2011, the charge against Vetri was reduced to attempted voluntary manslaughter, to which she eventually pleaded no contest. The judge sentenced her to nine years in state prison.[8]

That's not funny. A man was seriously injured.

Ah c'mon, the Commodore didn't mean anything. :roll: It's sad her life too such a bad turn. I was looking at some of her old pics -- wow, she had to be one of the most beautiful actresses who ever lived! The poor lady will be nearly 80 when she gets out of prison. Tragic.
