Synopsis for "Patsy Walker"

Patsy Walker goes to the train station to meet with her cousin Birdseye Walker, who is visiting up from the country. She is horrified by his country manner and dress. Taking him to a malt shop, Birdseye is made fun of by Hedy Wolfe. At the advice of Patsy's mother, Birdseye is taken out for a make-over by Buzz Baxter. When Hedy sees Birdseye, she falls for him, but he refuses to go out with her to the local dance.

When they arrive at the dance, Hedy cuts in on Patsy to dance with Buzz, leaving Patsy to dance with her cousin. When it's announced that the rest of the dance is to be done in costume, Birdseye makes it so that the only costume left for Hedy is a suit of armour. Hedy ends up tripping over her own feet and becomes the laughing stock of the party, vindicating Birdseye.

Later, when Birdseye returns home, he changes back to his regular attire, telling Patsy and her friends that there is a girl back home just like Hedy who would make fun of him if he returned home in his city clothes.

Humiliated the two girls return to Patsy's house and slink away to bed for the night.

Synopsis for "Patsy Walker"

With war rationing making pre-rolled smokes in short supply, Patsy and Nancy wait in what they think is a cigarette line, but soon learn that it is really a line up for the movies. After seeing a double feature, they find another line but there is a 45-minute wait. They decide instead to buy Patsy's father a tobacco rolling machine instead, and hope that her father will eventually kick the habit.

Going to the soda shop, Patsy finds Buzz and Hedy, and pulls Buzz away when Hedy becomes flirtatious with him. Giving her father the tobacco rolling machine, they try to roll cigarettes with little success leaving a large mess for Mary Walker to clean up afterword. The next day, Patsy, Buzz and Nancy wait in another line for cigarettes to find that they have sold out by the time they get to the head of the line. Back at the soda shop Patsy once more begins hoping aloud that her father can kick the habit. Buzz shows Patsy an advertisement for a product called "Zippo" that claims to cure the craving for cigarettes.

Patsy buys a bottle of the stuff and puts too much in her father's coffee, making him sick, but apparently curing him of his addiction. Mary tells Patsy to leave future attempts to curb her father's habits to her. Later, Patsy and Nancy discover that Hedy has taken up smoking in order to look more sophisticated and desirable to boys. At a party, they decided to play a trick on Hedy by putting Zippo in her drink, making her sick as well leading to an end of the party.

The next day, Stanley is smoking again, and has the Walker children working on his rolling machine so that he can "catch up" on the smoking he missed.

Synopsis for "Patsy Walker"

After seeing a Boris Karloff movie at the theatre, Patsy and Nancy are home alone. They are surprised to find Mickey trapped in the ice box, and once freed he tells them something scared him and he hid in there and got trapped. When Buzz and Hedy suddenly arrive, they startle Patsy and Nancy so bad they also hide in the ice box and lock themselves inside, necessitating Buzz to rescue them. Hedy tells the story to the local paper, making both Patsy and Nancy laughing stocks.

The next day at the diner, Patsy and Nancy have their tea leaves red by a fortune teller who informs them that there is trouble for their enemies and good luck for themselves. Later, when one of Buzz's friends makes fun of Patsy and Nancy, Buzz defends her before telling her that she and Hedy were at their house because Buzz wanted to go to the movies, but he went with Hedy instead.

Later that night, Mickey is scolded for making fun of Patsy, and Mickey decides that perhaps Hedy has gone too far and begins planning to get back at her for his sister. Meanwhile, Stanley also becomes concerned about the ridicule his daughter is facing in the newspapers and has some stern words with the newspaper editor. The entire story has humiliated Patsy so much that she refuses to leave the house and breaks up with Buzz. Later, when Mr. Wolfe is gossiping about Patsy, Stanley punches him out.

Meanwhile, Mickey makes his plans to get back at Hedy by inviting her to the diner, under the pretence that Buzz is going on a date with her. There, Hedy sits on a bench covered with wet paint. He dress ruined, Hedy rushes out of the diner while Mickey snaps a photo. The story makes the paper humiliating Hedy and taking attention away from Patsy. Later, the Walker children notice that their father is sporting a black eye courtesy of Mr. Wolfe.

Notes

  • Defenders #89 reveals that the Patsy Walker stories published between 1944 and 1965 were the fictional works of Dorothy Walker on Earth-616 that were loosely based upon the real life story of her daughter Patricia, who later became the costumed hero Hellcat.
