Sally Jupiter, born Juspeczyk, was the vigilante Silk Spectre in the 1930s and 40s. She was the mother of the second, Laurie Juspeczyk, and wallowed in her nostalgia during retirement.
As Silk Spectre, Juspeczyk adopted the Americanized name "Jupiter", donning a costume derived from her burlesque days. Her single glove covered the acid-burn scars on her arm. A media darling, she gained massive amounts of publicity, much to the thrill of her manager.
She pretended to be romantically connected to Hooded Justice, in order to hide the latter's homosexuality from the public.
When she decided to scale back her crime-fighting career, her manager suggested a film career; a career that ultimately tanked.
Despite her early sensational successes as a member of the Minutemen, her life was wrought with personal strife. Juspeczyk was sexually assaulted by the Comedian in the Minutemen's headquarters, and was only saved by Hooded Justice's intervention.
