Tiger Girl was a character created by Robert Webb. The character’s civilian identity is Princess Vishnu. Tiger Girl made her first appearance in Fight Comics #32, published by Fiction House in 1944.
In the comics, Princess Vishnu, also known as Tiger Girl, is the protector of the jungle, similar to other “”jungle queen”” characters popular during the era. She is accompanied by her two trained tigers, Rajah and Sultan. Tiger Girl is a strong and skilled fighter, and she often takes on poachers, invaders, or any others who threaten the peace and safety of her jungle home.
Tiger Girl was a recurring character in Fight Comics, a series that was known for its adventure stories set in various exotic locales. She appeared regularly in the series until its end in 1954 with issue #86.
Fiction House was a publisher known for its many action and adventure titles, and they often featured strong, independent female characters, of which Tiger Girl is a notable example. After the Golden Age of comics, Fiction House ceased publishing, and many of their characters, including Tiger Girl, fell into obscurity.
In a small village nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, the townspeople lived under the oppressive rule of ruthless overlords. These wealthy tyrants took advantage of the villagers, treating them as low-wage workers and essentially enslaving them. Vishnu, a fierce and determined young woman, lived in this village with her beloved grandmother, who filled her heart with stories of the great tiger goddess Durga.
When her grandmother passed away, Vishnu felt a deep void in her heart. She clung to her grandmother’s words, who had always told her that she would be reincarnated as a tiger. One day, while wandering the outskirts of the village, Vishnu stumbled upon a trapped and injured tiger. Remembering her grandmother’s promise, she felt an inexplicable connection to the majestic creature and decided to set it free. Grateful for her help, the tiger led her to a hidden cave where she discovered a mysterious tiger ring.
Upon wearing the ring, Vishnu felt an immense surge of power coursing through her veins. The ring granted her heightened senses, the ability to transform into a tiger, and even blend into her surroundings like a natural camouflage. Most impressively, she could generate an energy tiger from the ring itself.
With her newfound abilities, Vishnu set out to free her village from the cruel overlords. She used her enhanced senses to gather information about the overlords’ activities and plans, enabling her to devise a strategy to bring them down. In her tiger form, she infiltrated their stronghold, using her stealth and strength to subdue the guards and release the captured villagers.
Her camouflage ability allowed her to sneak into the overlords’ mansion, where she discovered evidence of their corrupt deeds. As a final act of defiance, Vishnu summoned the energy tiger from her ring, which roared mightily and chased the terrified overlords from the village, ensuring they would never return.
Word of Vishnu’s heroic acts spread throughout the village and beyond. The townspeople celebrated their newfound freedom and praised her as their savior. From that day on, she became known as Tiger Girl, a fierce warrior who used her remarkable abilities to protect the innocent and fight for justice. And though she had once been a simple village girl, she had now become a true hero, honoring her grandmother’s memory and the legacy of the great tiger goddess Durga.
