THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #265 (1985): 1st Silver Sable

Silver Sable has had a movie deal in place, yet for her first appearance she didn’t even get named on the cover. In fact, Spider-Man fought a different animal-villain on the cover: A Fox.

The elderly thief known as Black Fox returns, and he makes the mistake of stealing from a rich dude who has hired Silver Sable and her Wild Pack to get his stuff back. We learn she’s from Symkaria (a 616-only country).

This is Sable’s first appearance.

And she’s a total badass.

Spider-Man prevents Sable from killing Black Fox.

DeFalco created a bunch of new characters during his run, but not many of them were really worth much.  Sable has certainly stuck around.
