(My Love#10/1 (fb) - BTS) - Beverly Dayton was dating Nick Howard, but she eventually found him quite bossy.

(My Love#10/1) - One evening, Howard ordered a restaurant dish she wouldn't normally order, then took her to a boxing match that only he wanted to see. She found that she did enjoy herself after all. The next day, her friend Holly invited her to a "Female Freedom" rally where equal gender rights were advocated, and decided she wanted to be treated equally on dates too. She put Howard on hold for a couple of weeks while she dated gentler guys who valued her opinions, asking what she wanted to eat and where to go, but she was indecisive and the evenings withered. At another women's lib meeting, she came to the conclusion that female freedom was more about job quality and less about romance(!). She called Howard, who rushed over and declared his primitive love for her. She was thrilled.



Comments: Created by Stan Lee (writer), John Buscema (pencils) and John Verpooten (inks).

Howard and Dayton seem like good candidates to become HYDRA operatives.

This story was later reprinted in My Love#25, where she became a redhead on the cover only.

Nick Howard

Nick Howard

Nick Howard was Beverly Dayton's regular boyfriend. He socially domineered her, selecting her food at restaurants and deciding evening entertainment according to what he preferred, like prize fights. He claimed to have dated many women and liked them weak willed. Eventually finding him too bossy, Dayton put him off for a couple of weeks while she dated gentler guys, but found that she still wanted his dominating personality. She called Howard up and, being in love with her, he rushed over and declared them an enduring "Tarzan and Jane" type of couple.
