Madame Satan

Real Name


First Appearance

Pep Comics #16 (1941)

Original Publisher


Created by

Abner Sundell and Harry Lucey


Madam Satan was a mortal woman named Tyra. When she found out her fiance's parents didn't approve of her impending marriage, she murdered them. As they were dying, they managed to tell their son who had done the deed.

Naturally, the fiance wasn't too terribly happy to hear that, and he wound up killing Tyra. The murderess went to Hell, where she became a loyal servant to Satan himself. Her job was to seduce men into losing their souls.

Madam Satan was very straight-forward with her plans at first, but after two issues, she tried subterfuge, which worked pretty well until Brother Sunbeam showed up. This enigmatic figure was able to thwart her at every turn. Brother Sunbeam tried to capture her into a bottle, but never could.

Powers and Abilities

Her powers included hypnotic power over men and the ability to kill with a kiss.

Public Domain Appearances

  • Pep Comics #16-21


Madame Satan had the dubious distinction of having her feature canceled to make room for a teen humor strip that starred a certain Archie Andrews. Because she was a fairly dark character, she was one of the few Golden Age characters Archie Comics tried its best not to acknowledge (the other being Mr. Satan), until 2014, when she returned in the comic series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina after Archie Comics began to experiment with darker series after the success of the 2014 zombie story Afterlife With Archie.
