Sgt. Fury and Mademoiselle Marie



It's been a while since I read the stories, but I seem to remember there being somewhat of a spark of romance between Mademoiselle Marie and Sgt. Rock when they would team up back ing the day.  Liked that Rock found some happiness in the midst of battle, and it made sense to me that he was attracted to a woman that was as capable and determined as she was beautiful.

According to the 'DC Legends' series, which was written by Len Wein, Rock and Marie had a son who grew up to become a soldier himself... but Rock was killed (allegedly by the last bullet fired during WW2? or, at least, the last bullet fired in Europe during WW2?) before the boy's birth, and might not even have known Marie was pregnant.
Mind you, there are one or two other details in that series which don't fit very well into what was then established continuity...

ITEM: You hit the perfect match up, Ross. Not that there aren't plenty of such... but this is a super winner!

ITEM: The whole internet is a little more awesome today - and your page is leading the way - because you combined Kirby and Kubert in one team up. I gotta wear sunglasses, dude!

Ross said...

Thanks, ELS!

Um, silly question: Who is Rock fighting for?

Reason I have to ask is, the Maginot Line was built by the French to keep the Germans out. It obviously didn't work, and right after the Wehrmacht took Paris no one in France was all that sad about them blowing up the bunkers.

The only way Rock was going to encounter this piece of work would be if he were with the Germans in 1940, which brings up so. MANY. Questions...

Mind you, I could be overthinking it a bit here...

Thanks for spelling out the "mademoiselle" in "Mademoiselle Marie," Ross. When I was realllly young -- as in learning-to-read young -- DC always listed her as "Mlle. Marie," and mentally, I pronounced it "Mill Marie!"

Ross said...

Silver Fox, Haha, me too.

James Ryan - This is the Earth-STF Maginot Line, so it all makes sense.

@JR: Fury was probably trying to get back to London with vital info regarding D-Day. And Mlle. Marie probably handed over the info at a rendezvous beyond where the Maginot Line had been!

@Ross: if what you say is true, that raises an interesting question. If the topkick of Easy Company caught these two in the boudois, together, would that put Fury between Rock and the Hard Place?

James Ryan said...

@Cary: Okay, that works; thanks.

Btw, Ross: did you know one of the links at the bottom of this article refers to Herbie Popnick? Different Fury, dude!

Cary Comic said...

OM! Anon is right!

@Silver Fox: I mentally pronounced it "Millie Marie," myself.

Hmmm... Mlle. Marie meets Millie the Model? Maybe...
