This page may contain some of the same content as the DC Database article. A more complete and current article is at the DC Comics Database Susan Kent (Earth-S).
Susan Kent was born the daughter of police officer Sgt. Kent on the parallel reality known as Earth-S. As an adult, she became romantically involved with inventor Jim Barr, and soon discovered that he was also the costumed hero known as Bulletman. Barr created a second Gravity Regulator Helmet and gave it to Susan whereupon she became his sidekick Bulletgirl. Susan and Jim were soon married and they shared in many adventures together throughout the 1940s. Susan occasionally teamed-up with other empowered heroes such as Captain Marvel and his sister Mary Marvel. Bulletgirl and Bulletman became members of Shazam's Squadron of Justice and fought up against menaces such as the savage King Kull.
As Bulletman and Bulletgirl, the two made a formidable fighting team and were often known as the “Flying Detectives”. The two would go on to fight such villains as the Black Rat, the Black Spider, Doctor Riddle, the Murder Prophet, the Weeper, and the common gang of Nazi saboteurs. The duo would eventually add Bulletboy and Bulletdog to the Bullet Family.
Appearances, Images, and QuotesEdit
- This version of Susan Kent (Earth-S), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
- Bulletman and Bulletgirl were Fawcett Comics' second most popular characters after Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family.
- They were leased by DC Comics along with the rest of the Fawcett comics stable of characters in 1972, and then acquired outright by DC in 1991. However, most of the Bulletman stories lapsed into public domain prior to the said acquisition, which would later allow AC Comics to reprint their Golden Age adventures.
