All About Eve

Eve Strange had lived in the shadow of her well-known cousin the space hero for years and she was tired of it. In the early 1950s his name had become synonymous with space adventure. He'd been linked to the JLA and his exploits were spoken of from Abu Dhabi to Zanzibar. Eve, meanwhile, wasn't known at all. However, her red and white space suit, which she had donned two years before her cousin adopted his, was familiar to many folks. When people heard her name she was forced inevitably to deny she was married to the famous hero. "No, you're thinking of Alanna," she would say. Eve had played with her cousin as a child. They had pretended to be members of the Rocket Rangers, rounding up evil aliens and solving galactic crimes. He had gone on to do just that while Eve instead abandoned her galactic dreams for a time, going to Brown to study law. Years later she returned to her earlier dreams and along with the aliens Zmed and Znnrk! and others she formed the T-Birds.
