Diana Lanford was the assistant to Merzah the Mystic a magician who fought against communist and fascist subversives operating in America during the 1940s. In her only recorded appearance, she would assist Merzah in stopping Japanese spy Satokata Matsu from stealing the plans for a supposedly unsinkable ship. Accepting a challenge to meet Matsu at one of his hideouts, both Merzah and Diana were captured and taken to another location. They would be followed by Merzah's chaffer Jose Abejaron, who would accidentally alert the spies of his presence. While Merzah and Jose went after the fleeing Matsu, Diana would stay behind and beat all of his minions into submission. Ultimately Merzah would cause Matsu to have a fatal car accident and his minions would be turned over to the police.




Diana was a skilled fighter who would handle her own against a small group of well trained spies.
