'''TG Comics' Jet Dream: The [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/ Remix Comic]]'''

The original GoldKeyComics ''ComicBook/JetDream'' comic book stories provide the primary source material for the Jet Dream RemixComic, also known as ''Jet Dream and Her T-Girl Counterspies''. According to the fictional publishing history of the series, the characters were previously the stars of the long-running series ''Thunderbird Squadron''. But in the (nonexistent) final issues of that series, the T-Birds were [[GenderBender transformed into ''T-Girls'']] by the biological super-weapon [[AppliedPhlebotinum Virus-X]].

The first issue of the RemixComic depicts the T-Girls' efforts to find an antidote in time to save the population of Miami Beach and to reverse their own feminization. They succeed in the former but, [[FirstLawOfGenderBending of course]], fail at the latter, and remain T-Girls for the entire series.

The T-Girls engage in a variety of espionage and paramilitary activities, operating under {{NATO}} supervision. Their organization, formally, is '''J.E.T. D.R.E.A.M.''' - The '''J'''oint '''E'''lite '''T'''eam, '''D'''ivision of '''R'''aiding-'''E'''xpert '''A'''eronautical '''M'''aidens. Typically, however, the organization is referred to as simply "Jet Dream."

The members of Jet Dream, the RemixComic, are:
* '''Harmony Thunder ([[YanksWithTanks United States of America]])''' -- Former Korean War ace and Thunderbird Squadron leader Jack Thunder, now the "Jet Dream Queen."
* '''Petite ([[GaulsWithGrenades France]])''' -- Formerly the top "Ladies' Man" of the T-Birds, as a woman, the Tiny Tirailleuse is now just as enthusiastically interested in men (and alone among the T-Girls, has no interest whatsoever in women.)
* '''Marlene (WestGermany)''' -- One of the West's top scientific minds, she's also one of the strongest women in the world. Apparently unconcerned with and unaffected by her transformation, and for the most part [[{{Asexuality}} uninterested in sex of any kind]]. Apparently.
* '''Ting-a-Ling ([[TheBritishEmpire UK colony of Fiji]])''' -- Princess of a mysterious matriarchal Fiji tribe, Christina Ling was the sole female member of the old Thunderbird Squadron. [[MysteriousPast But all is not what it seems]] regarding her past....
* '''Cookie Jarr ([[NorseByNorsewest Norway]])''' -- Formerly [[HeavyMetalUmlaut Rlf Jarl Cok]], the short and awkward "teen mascot" of the Thunderbird Squadron, she enthusiastically embraced her new gender after becoming a tall, stunning beauty as a T-Girl.

To date, the above five are the only T-Girls, though indications are given that limited doses of a safe, modified version of Virus-X will be given to some of the most qualified members of the Jet Dream Auxiliary Services ([[WholesomeCrossdresser all of whom work and live as women]].)

According to the fictional publishing history of TG Comics, Cookie Jarr became the BreakoutCharacter of the [[GenderBender All-New, All-Female]] ''Jet Dream'' series. As a result, she gained her own solo title, ''It's Cookie!''. Unlike the straight action-adventure of the main title, ''It's Cookie!'' was a "teen humor" title, focusing on Cookie's role as head of Jet Dream's "kid sister" organization, '''J.E.T. T.E.E.N.''' - '''J'''unior '''E'''chelon, '''T'''een '''T'''-Girls, '''E'''lle-Boys, and '''E'''sprit-Girls ('''N'''atural!) While humorous in nature, these stories also had ColdWar themes, focusing on the mostly-peaceful "Cool War" propaganda campaign between NATO and the WarsawPact to win over the world's teens with competing [[GenderBender sex-change]] programs.

An additional title in TG Comics' fictional publishing history was ''My Jet Dream Romance'', a romance comic centered around the romantic lives of both the T-Girls and [[WholesomeCrossdresser Elle-Boys of the Jet Dream Auxiliary]].

Written and edited by [[SueDonym Suzanne de Nmes]], [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/ the Jet Dream Remix Comic appears here]].

----
!! The [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/ Jet Dream]] RemixComic provides examples of:

* [[FirstLawOfGenderBending 1st Law of Gender Bending]]: The [[PhlebotinumBomb biological weapon Virus-X]] feminizes the T-Girls. While they succeed in de-feminizing the male population of Miami Beach after a terrorist attack, feminization is irrevocable after 24 hours, so the antidote cannot help them personally.\\
\\
Only one person in the book believes Virus-X to be potentially reversible, and she's an [[PsychoExGirlfriend insane Psycho Ex-Girlfriend]]. In addition, a [[AppliedPhlebotinum voluntary treatment based in some unspecified way on Virus-X]] is also portrayed as irreversible.
* [[SecondLawOfGenderBending 2nd Law of Gender Bending]]: The older T-Girls all come to the first form of acceptance at varying rates. However, teen T-Girl Cookie Jarr is quickly excited by the possibilities of being an extremely attractive and [[AnythingThatMoves enthusiastically bisexual]] girl, even voicing a desire to remain female instead of taking a hypothetical antidote to Virus-X:
-->'''Cookie:''' [[TotallyRadical "It's the Love-In Generation, Harmony! And I was being Left-Out! But a chick can play with Jacks AND Jills! Double the Hills, Dig!"]]
* [[ThirdLawOfGenderBending 3rd Law of Gender Bending]]: Being [[ActionGirl Action Girls]], the T-Girls retain many traditionally "masculine" traits, but as [[MataHari covert operatives]], they have been extensively trained in all aspects of female appearance and behavior. However, they also seem to [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody thoroughly enjoy]] both their new female bodies and roles to varying degrees.
* AcePilot: All of the T-Girls, but Jack Thunder was also a literal "five kill" ace in the Korean War before being transformed into Harmony.
* AnchoredShip: None of the T-Girls show overt evidence of attraction to each other, but Jet Dream fans appear to have their favorite ships. Editorial responses to letters seem to indicate that these ships will remain anchored, perhaps due to the T-Girls observing military-style fraternization rules.
* AnythingThatMoves: While every T-Girl (except for [[GoodBadGirl man-crazy]] Petite) shows some interest in both men and women, teen T-Girl Cookie Jarr is an ''especially'' enthusiastic bisexual. She loves to dance, and [[GRatedSex will Twist with boys, and Frug with girls]]!
* AppliedPhlebotinum: "Virus-X" is both (used as a weapon) the cause of the Thunderbird Squadron's sex changes, and (used as a voluntary treatment) envisioned as a source of new T-Girls.
* AttractiveBentGender: The T-Birds were all transformed into attractive women, but they were also attractive ''men'' beforehand. The exception is Cookie Jarr, a short, skinny boy with glasses who became an extremely attractive girl, to the point that EvenTheGirlsWantHer.
* BeardOfEvil: Features heavily in Cookie Jarr's [[http://tgcaps.com/caps/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/mjdr01/mjdr1_02.jpg.php ''My Jet Dream Romance'' story]], as a philosophical debate between J.E.T. T.E.E.N. Boy Booster Phil Philpott and "El Teen Gringo del Sur" over the good or evil of facial hair becomes violent!
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]: Marlene is a Class 5 Big Girl, both a genius scientist and T-Girl strongwoman after her sex change.
* BioAugmentation: Virus-X gives T-Girls enhanced strength, agility, and endurance in addition to its most obvious effect.
* BiTheWay: Harmony and Marlene (though not with each other.)
* BrainyBrunette: Marlene, whose skills at [[ForScience Doing Science]] are unsurpassed.
* CelibateHero: Marlene, apparently indifferent to sex of any sort, thinks of her sex change as a minor inconvenience that occasionally gets in the way of [[ForScience Doing Science]]. The occasional urge can be dealt with easily enough by using [[ADateWithRosiePalms her Jet Dream Vibrostick]]. This attitude [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/mjdr01/mjdr1_01.jpg doesn't last forever]], though.
* CharacterFocus: Marlene and Cookie each get one in ''[[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/mjdr01/mjdr1_01.jpg My Jet Dream Romance]]''.
* ColdWar: Mostly averted in the original comic (which largely dealt with generic "enemy agents"), but played straight (Communist adversaries) in the main ''Jet Dream'' title, and parodied (the "Cool War" propaganda campaigns to win over the world's teens) in ''It's Cookie!''
* UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode: Despite the heavy emphasis on [[GenderBender sex changes]] and [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Fem Is In!"]] activities, the fictional publisher of the Jet Dream titles sought the approval of the Comics Code Authority. Aside from the occasional double-entendre and hints of [[GirlOnGirlIsHot lesbian relationships]], the books generally ''do'' stay within the limits of the Comics Code circa 1970.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: While Marlene claims a lack of interest in romance of any sort after her sex change, she also makes several veiled references to using "the science of vibration" to deal with her new feminine urges.
* DatingCatwoman: Jack/Harmony Thunder and Raven Red.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Marlene, who haff no time for and no interest in der kissing or der romance... or so she says.
* DeliciousFruitPies: A [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jet-dream-1970-annual/AD_01.jpg recaptioned Hostess ad]] appears in the ''Jet Dream 1970 Annual''.
* DifferentForGirls: Lampshaded but mostly averted. The T-Girls are quite comfortable in their new feminine roles, but mostly because they [[TookALevelInBadass Took A Level In Girl]] after [[TrainingFromHell comically extensive training]] in the recent past.
* DoubleEntendre: The comic is presented in such a way that it ''might'' theoretically have been approved by the UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode Authority circa 1970, if they could buy the basic GenderBender premise. Thus, almost all references to sex are veiled ones.
* DumbBlonde: Cookie Jarr isn't dumb, but might give that impression to people who aren't fluent in TotallyRadical.
* EasySexChange: The Soviet Union, lacking access to Jet Dream's true GenderBender processes, uses a surgical sex change procedure that seems to be an improved version of RealLife techniques, but with added {{Brainwashing}}.
* FantasticallyIndifferent: The T-Birds barely lose a step after being involuntarily turned into girls. There are complications and [[DifferentForGirls differences]], but they're seldom treated as all ''that'' big a deal.
* FourthWallMailSlot: In ''Jet Dream'' letter columns, letters are frequently addressed to, and answered by, the characters themselves.
* FunWithAcronyms: Used often.
** The T-Girls represent {{NATO}}'s '''J'''oint '''E'''lite '''T'''eam, '''D'''ivision of '''R'''aiding-'''E'''xpert '''A'''eronautical '''M'''aidens ('''J.E.T. D.R.E.A.M.''', or usually just "Jet Dream.")
** Their "little sister" team is '''J'''unior '''E'''chelon, '''T'''een '''T'''-Girls, '''E'''lle-Boys, and '''E'''sprit-Girls ('''N'''atural!), or '''J.E.T. T.E.E.N.'''
** Both organizations must deal with the sinister schemes of '''Z'''oned '''E'''xtortion and '''R'''emoval, '''O'''ccidental ('''Z.E.R.O.''')
* GenderBender: Main premise of the series.
* GeniusBruiser: Marlene is both the team's strongwoman and a brilliant scientist capable of achieving actual advances in the field of science!
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: One possible explanation for the (fictional) publisher's openness to implied lesbianism while eschewing depictions of male homosexuality (even if the males [[WholesomeCrossdresser look just like cute girls]].)
* GoodBadGirl: A dedicated and stereotypically French womanizer as a man, Petite is now exclusively and enthusiastically a connoisseur of fine males.
* GoodHairEvilHair: J.E.T. T.E.E.N. Boy Booster Phil Philpott is obsessed with this trope in [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/mjdr01/mjdr1_02.jpg "Kiss or Be Killed"]]:
-->'''Phil:''' "But he had facial hair! That says 'Evil' in my book!"
-->'''Cookie:''' "Phil, in J.E.T. T.E.E.N. you have to learn about other cultures! Facial hair ''does'' mean evil - but only in Asia, India, and parts of Europe!"[[note]]''My Jet Dream Romance'' #1[[/note]]
* HauntedTechnology: Jet Dream's newest helicopter, the X-34 Athena Stratolifter, is revealed to be [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jetdream04/jetdream4_02.jpg The Haunted Copter]]. Parodying DCComics' TheHauntedTank feature, the X-34 is haunted by the ghost of Athena.[[note]]''Jet Dream'' #4[[/note]]
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: The (fictional) publisher of Jet Dream comics limited [[WholesomeCrossdresser Elle-Boy]] contact with other boys to "D-F-K" (Dance-Flirt-Kiss), and then only for "training purposes." This was apparently in a misguided attempt to pass UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode muster and due to his own idiosyncratic belief that men needed to adopt a [[WeCanRuleTogether "Fem Is In!"]] lifestyle to survive in the [[{{Cloudcuckooland}} brave new mostly-female world]] that will ultimately arise from Womens' Lib, sperm banks, test-tube babies, and cloning.
* HoldingBackThePhlebotinum: Jet Dream has developed its own beneficial and voluntary [[GenderBender feminization]] treatment, but it's apparently only available in limited amounts for the very best J.E.T. T.E.E.N. recruits. Also, a recruit is not eligible for the treatment until after his 18th birthday. This explains why J.E.T. T.E.E.N.'s [[WholesomeCrossdresser Elle-Boys]] don't all just become girls, and why there are still many Elle-Boys in the Jet Dream Auxiliary Corps.
* HotLibrarian: Marlene, particularly in her CharacterFocus story from ''[[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/mjdr01/ My Jet Dream Romance]]''.
* IfICantHaveYou: Raven Red, toward Harmony Thunder. She specifically wants Harmony back ''as a man'' - something [[GenreSavvy everyone else]] knows to be [[FirstLawOfGenderBending impossible]]. If she can't have ''Jack'' Thunder, well....
* InterserviceRivalry: The two teenage Soviet bad guys from ''It's Cookie!'', [[MoscowCentre KGB]] agent "He-She Svetlana", and {{GRU}} "Saboteen" Captain Boris Volkov, can't stand each other. In "The He-She Ski Affair", their respective organizations are also working at cross-purposes -- the GRU wants to capture and interrogate Cookie Jarr, while the KGB wants to assassinate her.
* JumpingTheGenderBarrier: Inverted. Before her T-Girl transformation, T-Bird Squadron leader Jack Thunder had a [[DatingCatwoman relationship]] with Raven Red, leader of the [[AmazonBrigade Dynamic Dare-Dolls]]. Raven Red didn't react well to Harmony's change, due to IncompatibleOrientation. As a result, Raven Red became a PsychoExGirlfriend, obsessed with either changing Harmony back into Jack, or [[IfICantHaveYou killing her as a last resort]].
* TheMillstone: Appears to be Phil Philpott's main function on J.E.T. T.E.E.N. missions.
* MultinationalTeam: In addition to the T-Girls themselves, ''Raven Red and her Dynamic Dare-Dolls'', as seen in [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jetdream06/jetdream6_01.jpg "The Poweder-Puff Derby Caper"]]. Raven's team includes comically stereotypical representatives of various ethnicities and nationalities not "taken" by T-Girls (including [[AustralianAccent an Australian]], [[EverythingIsBigInTexas a Texan]], [[YiddishAsASecondLanguage a Jewish-American]], and [[GratuitousItalian an Italian]].)[[note]]''Jet Dream'' #6[[/note]]
* NebulousEvilOrganization: Z.E.R.O., replacing the original comic's CIPHER.
* NonIndicativeName: The full title of the feature is ''Jet Dream and her T-Girl Counterspies'', inherited from the original comic book feature, ''Comicbook/JetDream and her Stunt-Girl Counterspies''. However, in the Remix Comic, "Jet Dream" is the name of the ''organization'', not the lead character, whose name is Harmony Thunder. She's occasionally referred to as "the Jet Dream Queen" as partial [[JustifiedTrope justification]], but [[WordOfGod in truth]], the title was chosen because photoshopping out the letters "STUN" made for a quick and dirty title change that also fit [[GenderBender the main theme of the series]].
* PhlebotinumBomb: A weaponized Virus-X bomb temporarily transforms the male population of Miami Beach, Florida in [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jetdream01/jetdream1_01.jpg "Forever Female?"]].[[note]]''Jet Dream'' #1[[/note]]
* TheProblemWithPenIsland: Deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoked]] at the end of ''[[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jetdream02/jetdream2_06.jpg Jet Dream #2]]''. Harmony (frustrated as the only [[GenderBender T-Girl]] yet to pass her [[TrainingFromHell "Feminine Biology" training course]]) goes to the movies on a date. Afterwards, she says seeing the movie helped resolve her problem. Her date remarks "I knew you only needed one good flick!"
* PsychoExGirlfriend: [[http://tgcaps.com/tgc/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jetdream06/jetdream6_02.jpg Raven Red]], former lover of Jack (now Harmony) Thunder.
* PsychoRangers: Raven Red and her Dynamic Dare-Dolls, another all-girl squadron, made up of the national stereotypes not used for Jet Dream's own characters.
* PurpleProse: In both stories and letter columns, Suzanne de Nmes writes with the bombast and alliteration of a transgender StanLee.
* RemixComic: Primarily using the original ''Jet Dream'' comic as source material. Other comics used for material include the "Diana Prince, WonderWoman" stories, MillieTheModel, and various other "Teen Humor" and romance titles.
* {{Retraux}}: Both [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] and [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] styles are parodied:
** ''Jet Dream'' and sister titles ''It's Cookie!'' and ''My Jet Dream Romance'' are presented as if they were actual comic books published in the late '60s and early '70s by an obscure publisher [[AuthorAppeal obsessed with]] [[GenderBender male-to-female sex changes]].
** [[http://tgcaps.com/caps/modcomics/suedenim/jetdream/jet-dream-1970-annual/JT01_01.jpg.php Jill Trent, She-Sir Science Sleuth]] is presented as a "Golden Age Reprint" in the Jet Dream 1970 Annual, and parodies the style of comics from the '40s.
* SadlyMythtaken: In "The Haunted Copter" and other stories, Athena, goddess of civilization, wisdom, strength, strategy, craft, justice and skill in Greek mythology, is referred to as a "girl warrior of olden times." Who is now a ghost. Haunting an experimental helicopter.
* {{Shipping}}: Letters to the editor show quite a bit of this, whether with relatively simple LesYay pairings of the T-Girls, or various convoluted scenarios involving time travel or sperm banks that would allow a T-Girl to marry and/or have children with the male version of a teammate. [[invoked]]
* SideStoryBonusArt: "Fashion Pages" and reader-designed costume contests are often parodied.
* SkunkStripe: Harmony has a streak of bright red in her otherwise black hair.
* SpinOff: The action-oriented ''Jet Dream'' title spawned two spin-offs: ''It's Cookie'', a teen humor comic starring Cookie Jarr, and ''My Jet Dream Romance'', a romance comic.
* TeenSuperspy: Cookie Jarr and the other agents of J.E.T. T.E.E.N. Also {{CIA}} "Teenagent" Brian Bell, [[MoscowCentre KGB]] agent "He-She Svetlana", and {{GRU}} "Saboteen" Captain Boris Volkov.
* [[TookALevelInBadass Took a Level in Girl]]: While already {{Badass}} before their transformations, the T-Girls also had extensive training in Combat Femininity, which made them an AmazonBrigade and quite effective in their new feminized bodies and roles.
* TotallyRadical: Cookie Jarr, the [[GenderBender nerdy teen boy turned]] ActionGirl, frequently speaks in an indecipherable Bob Haney-esque mish-mash of "teen slang" as imagined by a middle-aged comic book writer circa 1970. She uses/misuses bits of slang [[AnachronismStew from anywhere between 1950 and 1970]], as well as some slang never uttered by a single teenaged human being before or since.
* TrainingFromHell: The T-Girls avert DifferentForGirls problems by virtue of ''extremely'' thorough training in Combat Femininity. Official Jet Dream training courses include:
** Bikini Training
** Combat Perfume
** Gyno-Grenade Gymnastics
** Feminine Biology
** Dance Riflery
** Danger Hair
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Jet Dream's (fictional) publisher was an amateur futurist who believed the "traditional" male was doomed by scientific advances that would enable women to live and reproduce without men. He saw [[WholesomeCrossdresser adopting the ways of females]] while retaining one's inherent male physiology as a way to prepare the young men of America for the brave new female-dominated world of the near future.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: In "South Pacific Powder-Puff Power!", there's a startling revelation about a longstanding character. [[spoiler:The T-Girls learned that Ting, the Polynesian princess and only "female" member of the Thunderbirds, had actually been a male. In Ting's matriarchal tribe, male royals are expected to live as women. When the rest of the team changed sex, so did Ting.]]
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Most of J.E.T. T.E.E.N.'s "Elle-Boys" are in training in hopes of eventually joining a Jet Dream squadron and being transformed into T-Girls. But not all Elle-Boys can make the grade, and some don't actually want to be transformed. Nevertheless, all Elle-Boys dress as females, while remaining [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday strictly heterosexual]].
* WorldOfActionGirls: Not only are the T-Girls and many of their adversaries female, but the various processes used to turn men into women also provide BioAugmentation, enhancing the new woman's strength, agility, and endurance. It's implied that after a generation or two, many of the world's men will voluntarily become women (and most of the remainder will become {{Wholesome Crossdresser}}s).
