I was reading Invaders Classic TPB #4 (reprinting the end of the run plus the 90’s mini-series) last night and realized that Spitfire and Union Jack were meant to be analogues of Whizzer and Miss America.
Went completely by me as a kid. Totally obvious in hindsight.
I remember at the time thinking it odd that the Invaders were so close to being the All-Winners Squad but took 3 years before the Whizzer and Miss America joined. -sigh-
