Tetsuko is David’s most popular character. She is his vision of what a Japanese manga Supergirl might be like, without as many powers. She also doesn’t wear a costume… or often times anything at all. Her trusty sidekick is the buxom Dr. Sonya Gannon. Some of his other characters are:
Satin Steel: Janet "Satin" Steele steps into the world of competitive bodybuilding. She is young, gifted, starry-eyed and eager to blaze her trail through the ranks to her ultimate goal… the title of Ms. Ultima.
Dyna The Damsel Dynamo! When Evil threatens, Deena pushes the button on her belt and becomes Dyna, The Damsel Dynamo!
Muscle Girl: Muscle Girl is a circus strongwoman, inspired by "Strong Man", a character created by comics legend Bob Powell in the 1950's. Her origins are a mystery, even to herself, so she travels with the circus, hoping to find a clue to her true identity.
