Fictional organization history[edit]

The Kid Commandos were a team of teenage costumed adventurers who aided the Allies during World War II.

During World War II, teenaged Gwenny Lou Sabuki, the daughter of Japanese American scientist Dr. Sam Sabuki, was present at a stateside battle in which sidekicks Bucky (Bucky Barnes) and Toro (Thomas Raymond) of the superhero team the Invaders fought the supervillain Agent Axis. There one of Dr. Sabuki's inventions accidentally gave Gwenny Lou and her friend David "Davey" Mitchell superhuman powers. Gwenny Lou became Golden Girl, and Davey became the Human Top. The four youthful heroes defeated Agent Axis, and later formed the Kid Commandos, who were allied with the adult Invaders. The Kid Commandos fought Nazi espionage at home in America.[1][2]

After the war, Golden Girl and Human Top were part of the V-Battalion.[3]
