What It's About
First premiering in summer of 1971, this Bronze Age babe was published by Skywald Publishing as the first African-American superheroine! Marion Michaels is a successful torch singer in ’70s Washington DC, but also has a secret identity as the bodacious Butterfly! Her amazing suit grants her the abilities of flight, able to scale walls, and jet propulsion. She first clashes with the crafty Claw, then goes against the Brothers of the Crimson Cross. This marvelous masked mama makes history in the annals of American comic books!
