Tiger Girl made her debut in 1944 in the Fiction House title: Fight Comics.  The original artist was Robert Webb, and other artists who rendered her over the years include Jack Kamen and Matt Baker.

Tiger Girl’s original name is Princess Vishnu, that, as well as the tiger theme and her companion, a tiger named Benzali, tie her to India — however, the jungle she lives in is usually African.  Tiger Girl has a “tiger ring”, which gives her added strength when she looks at it.

Tiger Girl was presented in Fight Comics until 1952 and then was transferred to Jungle Comics, mostly in reprints. Her last appearance was in 1954 in Jungle Comics #163.

In the late 1960s, Gold Key Comics released a title called Tiger Girl, but the only connection to the original Fiction House creation was the name.  Not protected by copyright, she has appeared in more recent times in titles produced by AC Comics.

Making her debut July 1961 in The Adventures of the Fly #13, Kim Brand was an actress who fell out of a hotel window, only to be saved by Fly Man, and subsequently falling in love with him.

When Fly Man’s foes Metal-Master and Bud Brack, put him in grave danger, an emissary of the Fly People, Turan, sought Kim, and offered her a Fly Ring which she accepted and became Fly Girl.

Fly Girl’s adventures with Fly Man would continue until the last issue of Fly Man (#39, September 1966), when Archie Comics dropped their superhero books to focus on Archie and other humor comics.
