The Project Superpowers World Continues In This Summer’s ‘The Scarlet Sisters’
by Erik Amaya
Masquerade, the Woman in Red, and Lady Satan are getting a book of their own.
The Scarlet Sisters, a new Dynamite comic from writer Alex Segura and artist Emiliana Pinna, returns readers to the Project Superpowers reality as the trio of heroines dish out their own special brand of vigilantism. Previously, Masquerade was a socialite on vacation with a last minute need for a masquerade ball costume. But she fails to head the shopkeeper’s warning that her hasty costume choice is possessed by the spirit of justice. She soon learns to enjoy the peculiar line of work, however.
The Woman in Red, meanwhile, is one of the first masked female hero in the burgeoning comic book medium. By day she is police detective Peggy Allen, but an ineffective justice system compels her to join the ranks of the costumed crimefighters.
Lady Satan is the most mysterious of the trio. Her bright future and dashing fiancé were wiped out by a Nazi bombing, leaving her to dispense a sort of justice that borders on the supernatural.
The series is set to debut later this summer. More details will also become available as the title approaches its launch.
