Stratogale was a teenage superheroine who was known for being deeply altruistic, spending her everyday life under the secret identity of a typical high school student. Her powers included subsonic flight, super-strength and the ability to communicate with birds, her love for these animals making her volunteer at a local zoo's bird hatchery.
Sadly, Stratogale would later become one of several heroes to suffer from a "Suit Malfunction". She had just pulled a commercial jet airliner out of a steep dive on April 23, 1957, when her cape got caught in a jet turbine, pulling her in and killing her.
Her name comes from a combination of "stratosphere", an upper layer of the atmosphere, and "gale", a strong wind. Also notable is the closeness to 'gal,' much like many of the other heroines have -girl names and the fact that "gale" is a homophone for the female name "Gail."
