Garganta is a superheroine from AC's comic book series FemForce.
Garganta's real name is Dr. Carol Heisler. Born in Yuma, Arizona on January 12 1919, she became a biochemist and later worked as a U.S. government research scientist working on the V-47 formula that gave Miss Victory and her daughter their powers. Carol took the formula herself and destroyed the complex where she was working and began to rampage out of control because she could not control the energy in her. After being knocked out by the second Miss Victory (who was leading the team at the time) she grew to gigantic proportions and continued her rampage, eventually being stopped by a combined attack that knocked all the energy out of her. Carol again grew to a giantess and rampaged after unwillingly being subjected to an electro-stimulation experiment. This time she escaped to the sea and displayed a new ability to adapt to her surroundings becoming a giant whale-like sea creature. Miss Victory was dispatched to kill her with a special gun, but after Garganta telepathically told her how peaceful she was, she faked Garganta's death for her.
Garganta was returned to human form by the Gammazons, a race of giantess alien Amazon women, which left her 50 feet (15 m) tall with the mind of a passive sea mammal. She was abducted along with several other characters but was saved at the climax of the story. After the Gammazons were vanquished, Garganta was given a special bikini by Span-XX (who make all of FemForce's costumes) and a special apartment in a giant prefabricated building in the Femforce HQ but she later gained the ability to grow and shrink at will through practice.
In a later storyline, Garganta came under the influence of rich socialite Stella Stargaze, who exploited her--firstly as a movie actress and later as a telepathic healer. However, when she attempted to "heal" a man who had been involved in seal hunting, she went wild and started growing in her nightmares. She was rescued by the FemForce and recuperated on a remote island. Tara managed to get her away from the complex with her untested growth abilities.
