Red Sonja (Vol. 1)

    (Marvel, 1977-1979)
™ and ©1977 Marvel Entertainment Group

A flame-tressed warrior of legend, she is called Red Sonja. As a girl, she lived a quiet life with her brother and parents, until the day that soldiers came to take away her brother to serve in a tyrant’s army. When her parents resisted, the soldiers slew her family and raped Sonja. In the wake of the attack, she was visited by an apparition—a goddess who offered Sonja strength equal to any man or woman. The condition of this offer was that Sonja could never give herself to a man who had not first bested her in a fair fight.

From that offbeat origin came one of the best characters of the genre, and a welcome counterpoint to the musclebound men who dominate it. Red Sonja first appeared in Conan the Barbarian #23, then went on to a solo stint in Marvel Feature (1st Series). Her adventures continue in this, her second solo title.
