The Red Bee's secret identity is Rick Raleigh, assistant district attorney in Superior City, Oregon. His superhero modus operandi is to put on a red and pink costume and, with his trained bees and "stinger gun," fight Nazis and gangsters. His favorite bee is named Michael and lives inside his belt buckle for use in special circumstances; the feature's writer was presumably unaware that male bees do not sting at all.
The character never became very popular, and was largely forgotten until he reappears in DC Comics' All-Star Squadron, where it is revealed that he had been killed by the Nazi supervillain Baron Blitzkrieg. He also appeared as a ghost in the pages of Starman.
Other post-Crisis appearances include a cameo in Animal Man in which the character resides in a canceled character's "limbo", and in Bizarro Comics, where he and his agent attempt to improve his marketability. He is mentioned by Plastic Man as having been a friend and drinking buddy in an issue of JLA.
Over the course of Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters vol. 2, (2007), Jenna is mutated by an alien insect colony into a human/insect hybrid, with enhanced physical abilities, pheromone production capabilities, and antennae on her head.
However, her mind is later completely circumvented by the mutation. After trying to colonize the entire earth, she is cured of her affliction when Lanford Terrill uses his new Neon powers to destroy the insect influence. By the series end, Jenna feels guilt over her actions, and she eschews the superhero life to continue her work in the research field.
