She's a marvel..
Yep she is and from a galaxy .......! So who is she?
Okay, I am not sure about this answer but I think the character's name is Tarheel (really - like our UNC Tar Heel basketball team here in Chapel Hill - reason the name stuck with me) from Marvel's first run of Star Wars comics, one of the later issues.
You got it anonymous! Tarheel she is. Cinda Tarheel from Marvels Star Wars Comics. Well done. It's funny why we remember things. Like you I remember Tarheel but for me it's the name of the American toy company who released my beloved Project SWORD toys in the States in 1967. they were based in Tarboro NC. Is that near you?
