I only heard of this superheroine for the first time this afternoon, as she was mentioned in a topless robot piece on comic characters with skull motiffs. (http://www.toplessrobot.com/2010/10/the_10_greatest_skulls_in_comics.php?page=1)

Fantomah (http://www.toonopedia.com/fantomah.htm)

What a cool visual though - a woman who is transformed into a blue-skinned, skeletal figure whenever she uses her abilities (vaguely defined, but that could be treated by a new take on the character).

I see her as an interesting opportunity to do a street-level figure with magical abilities. Plus public domain, no troublesome royalties issues.

Gail, potential BoPer?

Stupid Comics have an amusing take on the character here (http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/stupidcomics5.html).

As cool as it would be to see Fantomah in comics, I think seeing Fantomas (http://www.last.fm/music/Fant%25C3%25B4mas?ac=Fantom) in comics would be even better.

Fantomex pretty much covered that order.

Shadowpact is a decent proposal too. It might encourage the character's more 'deus exy', original powerset though, which is why I suggested BoP.
