Introducing Our Vintage Black Heroes Line Featuring The Butterfly Vintage Black Comic Images

Posted by

The Butterfly was the first Black Female Super Heroine to be featured in a comic book.

The Butterfly appeared in two comics in 1971 - Hell-Rider #1 and #2.

Hell Rider was a black and white magazine published by Skywald (Sol Brodsky and Herschel Waldman) which ran for just two issues. There are two features in the comic book - The Butterfly, and The Wild Bunch - but instead of making them separate entities, both stories are a part of the bigger Hell-Rider story.

The Butterfly Story:

  • Crime fighting Super Heroine
  • Can overpower and permanently blind villains, fly at 100 miles per hour with her power pack, climb and adhere to structures with her finger cups
  • Her alter ego is Marian Michaels, a beautiful, aspiring songstress and super bad soul sister

The Butterfly was written by Gary Freidrich, illustrated by Rich Buckler.

The Museum Of UnCut Funk has created a line of merchandise featuring The Burrterfly, which can be found in our Museum Of UnCut Funk Store. Own a piece of Vintage Black Comic History!!!

Please join us in celebrating the 44th anniversary of The Butterfly in 2015!!
