Powers/Abilities: Suzanne Storm was an
generally well-regarded stage actress, keen to maintain her career.
(Love Romances#31/1 (fb) - BTS) - Suzanne Storm was
keen to make it in stage acting and was picked for her first role by
Jimmy Blake, who fell quickly in love with her. Aware of her ambition,
he only hinted at his feelings to her, suspecting that marriage was not
for her. Blake stayed close as her press agent and guided her career to achieve Broadway prominence.
Romances#31/1) - At her latest play, "Love's Rival", she was wooed with
flowers by wealthy trader Vincent West and several dates soon followed.
West proposed to her on a boating trip and she accepted, but she was
reluctant to concede to West's demands that she retire from acting and
become a full-time housewife. Upset, she confided in Blake, who
later confronted West backstage. She overheard the men's stern exchange
and heard Blake
admit he had long been on love with her. After the play, she decided to
cancel the engagement with West and returned the ring. Later, Blake
revealed his true feelings to Storm and the two agreed to marry, but
with Storm continuing her acting career.
Comments: Created by uncredited writer and Jay Scott Pike (pencils & inks).
I'm guessing the similarity in name with one of Stan Lee's prominent creations would suggest that this story was also penned by Stan Lee.
These romance stories often had the flavor of the
time in which they were written, and nothing else to tie them into
Marvel's sliding timescale. As such, it's likely that the stories took
place at the time of publication rather than being part of the sliding
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Suzanne Storm has no known connections to:
Jimmy Blake quickly fell in love with promising stage
actress Suzanne Storm, but thought her ambition ruled out any prospect
of marriage and so kept mostly quiet about his feelings. To stay close,
he became her press agent, promoting her stage plays and guiding her
path to Broadway stardom. When rich trader Vincent West wooed her, Blake
encouraged the first date, but after seeing West's later adverse impact
on Storm to retire, confronted West backstage. Storm overheard Blake
declare his love for her and she canceled her engagement with
conservative West so that she could continue acting, married to Blake.
Vincent West was a successful but conservative Wall
Street market trader and philanthropist, who channeled funds to support
Storm's play. He managed to get Storm out on several dates, eventually
proposing marriage to her, but expected Storm to sacrifice her stage
career and become a full-time housewife. This upset Storm and led to her secret
love, Jimmy Blake, confronting West backstage. She overheard the
exchange and decided to cancel the engagement, returning the ring. West
did not seem particularly upset.
