For most comic fans, Two-Face is the gold standard for bilateral asymmetry (though I'm sure there's a small band of Ultra the Multi-Alien loyalists among you).

But did you know that there was a malefactor who debuted around the same time as Two-Face who was twice as weird? Meet Charles Biro's He-She, a bad guy whose tagline is so poetically idiotic I must quote it verbatim:

Quote
Yes, He-She's left-hand side is a femme fatale, whereas the right side resembles one of those trail-mix-faced gangsters from Dick Tracy's rogue gallery.

At this point, you're wondering why He-She has remained unheralded for the last 70 years. Let's take a look at He-She's one and only adventure in 1943's Boy Comics #9.
