- Meta-Origins: Back in the 90s, Epic Comics was in a slump. The market was collapsing, forcing them to turn to foolproof, if pathetic marketing technique: add as much GRITTY, MANLY, and SEXY as possible. To afford the expensive 'talents' of Bob Ryefeld, they had to cut down on a few minor details, such as proofreading and good writing. This lead to a slip in the Barbaric Butler one-shot: Tea Time for Terror. The villain, who had been a minor villain of Doctor /Co/ccult since the original series in the 60s, was Monocle Girl. However, she was mistakenly called "Monical Girl." For years, she had been forgotten, left as nothing more than a piece of trivia. Recently, however, with the advent of online comic communities, she has developed a major fan following. Every few seasons, Epic now releases a "Monical Girl and the Sageworthy Society" comic. These are generally lighthearted, and poke fun at some of the tropes of comic book events.
- Origins: Originally, Monocle Girl was a minor villain of Doctor /Co/ccult. Using the Master's Monocle, she could wield the powers of the Mind Master, a Golden Age villain that died off years before her birth, and happened to be her grandfather. By staring into the soul of a person, she could trap them in dimensions of swirling color, sending many into seizures. After the Ryefeld incident, however, the blatant misnaming had to be retconned. It was revealed in Doctor /co/ccult #27 that the original Monocle Girl was actually in her 60s, and had been using the Master's Monocle to hide her aging. In a final battle with the Doctor, she sends her soul into the Master's Monocle, allowing her to bring the visions it projects into the real world. Eventually, she is bested, and the magic power, in a burst of chaos, disappears. We are then shown it materializing in the hands of a young woman, two years in the past (putting it around the time of TTfT, who bears a strikingly similar appearance to Monocle Girl. She toys around with the Monocle, discovering that now has the power to give her 'visions' of the real world, letting her see anywhere. Her grandmother, Monocle Girl walks in and gasps at the sight of the Monocle, one of which she is also wearing. After a short discussion, she decides, in a blink of 'brilliance': "Well, my name is, like, Moni. And this this is, idk, Cali, right? I'll be... um... Monical Girl!" Her grandmother then slapped her, mumbled fine, and took her granddaughter off to learn all the manners she would need. Recently, 'Monical Girl' seems to have struck up a romance with the Barbaric Butler. How she will manage both villainy and a hero boyfriend has yet to be seen.
- Powers: In addition to the Master's Monocle, which allows her to have visions of any place, she has two guns, enchanted to have unlimited ammo, but with a loss to the size, and power, of the bullets. For melee situations, she has two magic swords, which, while dull, feel like they are weightless.
