Abigail "Ma" Hunkel was the owner and operator of a grocery store in New York City in 1940.

But secretly she also operated as a costumed hero.

Her costume was quite unique as superhero outfits go. It was cheap. It had a very blue-collar appearance as it was made up of longjohns and a cooking pot for her head.

She eventually joined the Justice Society of America and the All-Star Squadron.



At some point, Ma Hunkel, in her full Red Tornado costume, posed for a photograph with several other members of the Justice Society of America.

The other JSA members to pose for the photo were Batman, Superman, Spectre, Hawkman, Hourman, Flash, Wildcat, Johnny Thunder, Starman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Sandman, Doctor Mid-Nite, Doctor Fate, Terry Sloane, the Earth-1A Red Tornado, Black Canary, the Atom and Robin.[1]
