Background Info (Words in italics are borrowed from The Pulptress Official Facebook Page)

The child of two mysterious Pulp Heroes, The Pulptress was orphaned when her parents, forced out of retirement, disappeared within days of her birth. Due to the likelihood of such an event taking place, her parents had made arrangements with a wide variety of people and groups to insure that not only would their daughter be well cared for and healthy, but that she would grow up to be the greatest Pulp Hero yet.

Passed from teacher to teacher, The Pulptress learned every fighting skill as well as earned a multitude of degrees in her very few years. She has lived with the Cherokee Indians, Eskimos, Tibetan Monks, Oriental priests, and many, many other types of groups and people, all dedicated to insuring that she would be no ordinary woman…dedicated to giving life to…THE PULPTRESS!

Trained by the great pulp heroes of the past, The Pulptress should be quite a force to be reckoned with. Take note, though, that many male opponents underestimate her because of her gender and attractiveness — that’s their mistake!
