Friends call her Vampi, mother calls her Iubit. A gifted selfless hero who nonetheless struggles to meet rent every month. She’s clever and subversive, with a restless desire to avenge the victimized.
In addition to all you know so far, Vampirella must live with the painful memory that she was created by her mother Lilith as a “substitute” for the daughter she lost, stolen by the demon Belial. Lilith created Vampirella in the image of Draculina, her lost child, a virtual twin, in an effort to lure Belial out of his wandering through time and space. The tactic worked, but Draculina, ironically, became trapped inside a dimensional portal and became lost somewhere in time..
Nevertheless, Vampirella possesses a range of astonishing superpowers: She has incredible tonner-level strength, highly acrobatic maneuverability, sees in total darkness, is veritably ageless, has wolf-like hearing, reads emotions through scent; heals quickly; has a hypnotic stare that can manipulate people’s wills; and last, but not least, she can grow huge bat wings for flight, and even shapeshift, but at great cost of her physical well-being.
She’s also playful with a wit as sharp as her fangs, managing to quip on the twisted side in the darkest of situations, perhaps a given from someone who’s been to hell and back (literally), and then some.
Her past is a colorful one, but the horrific crash of Affirm Airlines flight 1969, which killed her best friend and destroyed a good chunk of suburban Los Angeles, was no accident.
This sets the stage for a binge-worthy storyline leveraging a highly expansive universe.
Spanning over 50 years, Vampirella is the centerpiece of a powerful legacy and an ever expanding franchise rooted in the rich lore of vampire mythology, the supernatural, and even the interdimensional. Through the decades, this iconic series has seen a number of incarnations to suit the collective consciousness with a blend of horror, drama, science fiction and fantasy rife with heart and repartee.
