Greet­ings & Salu­ta­tions! Here’s what’s new this week in the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity… Happy Canada Day Stan­dard! Did you know… One of Canada’s first su­per­heroes was an Inuit woman, who even pre­dated DC’s Won­der Woman by a few months. Nel­vana of the North­ern Lights made her de­but in an is­sue of Tri­umph-Ad­ven­ture comics in 1941 and was cre­ated by artist Adrian Din­gle, who was in­spired by tales of Canada’s Arc­tic re­gion. Of­ten de­scribed as an Inuit demigod­dess, she was the daugh­ter of a mor­tal woman and Ko­liak the Mighty, King of North­ern Lights. Nel­vana drew her su­per­pow­ers—which in­cluded flight, in­vis­i­bil­ity, and su­per speed—from the lights them­selves, and used them to ward off every­thing from mam­moth men to Nazis.
