History: (Marvel Age I#87) - While walking her colander-helmeted dog, Colander-Girl met Earth-665's Forbush Man, who was walking his own cookware-helmeted dog. Quickly falling in love, Forbush Man and Colander-Girl attempted an awkward first kiss in which they both knocked each other senseless when their cookware helmets collided. She later went on a date with Forbush Man, in which the two went ice skating and Forbush Man fell through thin ice.

(Marvel Age I#88) - Forbush Man invited Colander-Girl to a party, an invitation Colander-Girl readily accepted. The two then walked down to the street to the address of the party, only to find that it was a Tupperware party, much to their excitement.

(Marvel Age I#89) - After having fun with Forbush Man tying a ribbon around the (Aunt) May pole, Colander-Girl was given flowers by Forbush Man but unfortunately, the flowers irritated Colander-Girl's hay fever and she went into a sneezing fit. Forbush Man later took Colander-Girl to a movie showing of "Easy Rider," thinking Colander-Girl might like it since he heard it was all about "pot-heads." The excited Colander-Girl replied that she also heard Captain America was in the film.

(Marvel Age I#90) - Colander-Girl accompanied Forbush Man to the beach, where a bully attempted to kick sand at Forbush Man, only to slam into Forbush Man's cast iron helmet instead.

(Marvel Age I#91) - Colander-Girl joined Forbush Man on a date, in which they watched a fireworks show. During the show, Colander-Girl marveled at the fireworks while Forbush Man was amazed at a book titled The History of Cheese. The duo later saw a living planet, whom Colander-Girl thought was a stuck up, prompting Forbush Man to accuse the planet of having an ego.



(Marvel Age I#92) - Colander-Girl and Forbush Man visited Cookware "R" Us' Back-to-School Fashions sale, where they perused the various cookware.

(Marvel Age I#94) - Dressed in a Halloween costume (involving only a domino mask over his normal costume), Forbush Man met up with Colander-Girl, who immediately recognized Forbush Man. She then joined Forbush Man and someone dressed as Captain America in trick or treating, where she received gum and Forbush Man received a rock. Two days later, the duo went on a date to an art museum, where Forbush Man informed Colander-Girl that the gallery in the museum was from one of X-Men, to which Colander-Girl remarked that it was the Rogue's gallery.

(Marvel Age I#96) - Colander-Girl went for a walk with Forbush Man, who asked what day it was. As Colander-Girl explained that it was Thursday, the 13th, Forbush Man fell in a manhole, admitting his relief since he thought it was Friday the 13th.

(Marvel Age I#98) - Colander-Girl spent Valentine's Day with Forbush Man at Mount Rushmore.

(Marvel Age I#103) - Colander-Girl formed the Forbie Force alongside Forbush Man and Jones Boy.

(Marvel Age I#105) - As part of the Forbie Force, Colander-Girl joined Forbush Man and Jones-Boy around a campfire, where Jones-Boy horribly sung a song about the month of September.

(What The--?! I#26 - back cover) - Following the death of Forbush Man at the hands of Dumsday, Colander-Girl ran up to Forbush Man's corpse and attempted to claim his boots for herself.

Comments: Created by Chris Eliopoulos, Barry Dutter and Ron Zalme.

Colander-Girl's hair was miscolored blonde (at one point even blue, see above swimwear image) instead the usual brown in several of her appearances. Her eye color was impossible to determine as she was drawn in such a cartoony way that her eyes appeared to be nothing more than white irises with black dots.

Forbie Force was an Earth-9047 superhero team formed by Earth-665's Forbush Man alongside Colander-Girl and Jones Boy.
