Vicky Vale has her own thread so I thought it only right that Batman's first flame got her own thread as well. This is a thread for all things Julie Madison. Julie Madison first appears in Detective Comics #31 (September 1939) only four issues after Batman's own debut. She is originally portrayed an oft-imperiled socialite/actress who dates Bruce Wayne when not being rescued by Batman. Most significantly, Julie is used as a pawn in the vampiric Monk's battle with the Dark Knight. Julie is engaged to Bruce Wayne for a while, until she ends the relationship because Bruce wouldn't find a serious career; she of course did not know about his secret identity. She is revealed to have been an actress in Detective Comics #40. She made her last appearance in the early series in Detective Comics #49, where she is targeted for revenge by Basil Karlo, the original Clayface, because she starred in the remake of one of Karlo's films. It is later revealed that she becomes a star under the stage name "Portia Storme." In the same story she ends her engagement to Bruce Wayne and dresses as Robin in a plan to fool Clayface, becoming the first female to done the costume. Julie Madison reappears in two World's Finest stories in the 1970s as Princess Portia, ruler of the fictional country of Moldacia. This was intended as a loose parallel to Grace Kelly becoming Princess Grace of Monaco. -Wikipedia I can't find many pictures of her, if anybody has pictures please post 'em!
