Like the Emo Band from a couple of weeks back, I had no plans to ever use Knuckle Sam again, but the story needed a non-supervillain nemesis and she fit the bill.  Her redesign works so much better than the horribly offensive lesbian-stereotype image from before; the punk rocker motif really fits her character.

“Bills Paulie” is very obviously based on Paul Williams, one of my favorite singer/songwriter/actors and star of the only musical I’ll watch, The Phantom of the Paradise.
