Help wanted...
« on: 08 April, 2009, 03:09:25 am »
My photographic memory's failing me. Did the ninja girl who tried to off Dredd in 'The Art Of Geomancy' - revenge thing for Stan Lee taking a kicking, John Burns art, Alan Grant script I believe - have a name?

A good question, Al.

In "On Meeting Your Enemy" (prog 622), the sensei calls her Dragon Daughter of the Fighting Heart.

In "Art of Geomancy" (prog 762-765) she is referred to as Wu Wang (Thunder Rolling Under Heaven) as it was the second pictograph on the note she stuck on Dredd's back when she went through customs.

From that, I don't see an actual name given for the character, just a title and an alias.

I believe the first story was entitled "On Meeting Your Enemy" with the second called "The Art of Geomancy"

Hope that helps.  

WANG!

I remember laughing at that at the time.  Glad I'm not alone....
