Mademoiselle Marie

Mademoiselle Marie (often shortened to Mlle. Marie) is the name of a fictional character appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. She first appeared in Star Spangled War Stories #84 (August 1959), and was created by Robert Kanigher and Jerry Grandenetti.
Marie (last name not given) started out as an ordinary French farm girl, listening avidly to war stories told by her father and grandfather. By the time she grew up, her country was again in need of heroes, as the Nazis had marched in and taken over. She and her father joined the Resistance, but his participation was short-lived. In fact, he died in her arms in their very first story, leaving her the de facto commander of their unit. She proved to be more-or-less typical of fictional French Resistance women — tough as nails or soft as silk, depending on what would best advance her cause.
In Pre-Crisis continuity it was revealed that Marie had a daughter named Julia Remarque. The father of her child was Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth, who was an intelligence agent in France during the war. Julia no longer exists in the current DC Comics continuity.
