The Medusa Effect...on Models, Movie Stars, and Musicals!

There's no doubt that Medusa's long beautiful shining gleaming streaming down-to-there hair was a major influence in the swingin' sixties look. Don't believe me? Just take a look at just a few of the pop culture icons who followed our Ms. Medusa's lead.

As a young lad in the early '70s, I was certainly entranced by the lady of the lively, long red tresses and whether coincidental or not, as typically depicted by Kirby, Romita, J. Buscema, et. al., Medusa did bear a striking resemblance to Raquel Welch, only, of course, with much longer and redder hair.
