Golden Age Origin

Marietta is a re-colored and re-named version of Lady Satan from Chesler.

While in a US occupied zone in Europe, Marietta came to the aide of her friend Nancy. Nancy's father, the Viscount, had died a year ago, but his money had vanished. Marietta decided to head to Marco's Villa where she encounters the ghost of Nancy's father. Guided by this ghost, she was lead to both the missing money and his killers. The Viscount was murdered by none other than his "faithful" housekeepers Rebecca and her husband.

Powers and Abilities

In the story, Marietta was depicted as a capable adventuress and investigator who used clever gimmicks to make criminals believe she had magical powers. An example included a ring that released pepper gas and that she would tell criminals was “Powder of the Dragon's Scales.” These scales she would claim could unveil the shadow world. She was also strong enough with some effort to break through iron chains.
