Cross-dressing Week: Madam Fatal
As suggested here, let's declare it official Cross-dressing Week! And where better place to start than with Golden Age "heroine" Madam Fatal?
Introduced in the appropriately named Crack Comics #1 in 1940, elderly matron Madam Fatal (think Aunt May, but with... added extras) is really retired actor Richard Stanton. When his daughter is kidnapped, he sets about making a new life for himself as an old woman. His foes now underestimate his speed and strength allowing him to fight crime™. No one knows of his secret but his pet bird, a parrot named Hamlet.
