Musings in the Dark: Boss Chicks: Lady Spellbinder


Boss Chicks: Lady Spellbinder

This violet-haired diva isn't a shero, but a villain.  I typically root for bad girls as well as bad-ass girls.  Here in the Dark, distinctions between sistah villains and sistah sheroes simply don't matter when exposure is the objective.   Lady Spellbinder, a.k.a. Fay Moffit, was the boo of a dude named Delbert Billings, also known as Spellbinder.  Spellbinder had the chance to become immensely powerful, but he was one of those men who lacked vision.  The power in question was the ability to create genuine, realistic, painful illusions in the minds of victims.  Fay, being a woman of drive, ambition and vision, murdered her man execution-style to obtain said power.  Clearly, he was in her way.

I have no problem with this, not at all.  Sometimes shit must be done to get what one wants and I completely respect the game.  

Anyhoo, Lady Spellbinder went up against Batman & Robin, using her powers to great effect until they figured out her weakness.  But as with any strong black woman, they didn't keep her down for long.  She went on to battle others, including the Birds of Prey.  Word on the street is that she was killed in the Battle of Metropolis, but it could very well be an illusion.  Fay's gifted like that.

"Try again, suckas!!!"
