Spitfire comic news

Lady Jacqueline Falsworth-Crichton is part of one of the oldest heroic legacies in the Marvel Universe. Her father, James Montgomery Falsworth, became one of England’s premier costumed champions when he donned the costume of Union Jack during World War I. During World War II, her brother got into the hero business when he took up the mantle of Union Jack as well. Jacqueline joined the family business later in the same war when a blood transfusion from the original android Human Torch endowed her with superhuman speed. Donning a mask and costume, she became the hero known as Spitfire. Decades later, her super speed had faded and she retired from crime fighting, but a serious injury led to her receiving a second transfusion from the original Human Torch, a transfusion that not only gave her back her powers but restored her youth. She returned to crime fighting and recently became a member of England’s elite government team of super heroes, MI-13.
