Sable Lady (Hostess Comics)

Sable Lady

Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


During the 1970s, confectioner and cakes maker Hostess advertised in major comic books. The advertisements were full-page comics starring Marvel and DC Comics characters (and Hostess products).

These comics were nonsensical and a parody of the most absurd aspects of Silver Age  comics. They’re still fondly remembered for their goofiness.

Powers and Abilities

She’s an “evil genius” who knows how to distract cops long enough to steal fur coats.



She appeared in “Batman and Sable Lady”, which appeared in Superman #320.

Burglar alarms all across the city are going off. It takes the genius of Batman to point out that alarms are not going off at Fur Plaza.

He and Robin speed to the scene, where they find Sable Lady stealing furs. They toss her some cupcakes (and several awful puns), and she surrenders.


She has blonde hair. She wears a off-the-shoulder fur minidress, fishnets, fur-lined boots, a fur cap, and a fur coat. She also wears a small pendant.


“Hmmm. My lovvvely lovvvvelies ! You’ll be mine, all mine !”
