(Spidey Super Stories#38/4 (fb) - BTS) - Fancy Dancer planned to kidnap renown ballet dancer Tip Toe Tulip and hold her for ransom money.

(Spidey Super Stories#38/4) - Fancy Dancer grabbed Tulip during her on-stage performance before an audience. Super-heroes Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel quickly arrived and gave chase, but Fancy Dancer's acrobatic and athletic moves were too unpredictable. The kidnapper carried his quarry outside the theater, intending to go back to his studio, but the heroic duo coordinated an attack that knocked the villain into a nearby fountain. Later, the heroes (in their civilian guises as Carol Danvers and Peter Parker) passed the news story information to their editor at the Daily Bugle.

Fancy Dancer has no known Earth-616 counterpart (unless Fancy Dan of Earth-57780 chose a different career path!).

Profile by Grendel Prime.

Fancy Dancer of Earth-57780 has no known connections to:

Tip Toe Tulip

Tip Toe Tulip was a renown ballet dancer. Assigned to interview her, Carol Danvers and Peter Parker watched her stage performance, but when Fancy Dancer kidnapped her for ransom in front of the audience, Danvers and Parker changed into their secret superhero identities. Tulip didn't struggle much during the kidnapping (maybe Fancy Dancer had her in a tight grip). Freed, she watched as Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man knocked her kidnapper into a fountain.
