    The woman known as P'Gell was a young French socialite who loved a doctor who worked in third world countries. After the doctor was murdered on the job, the devastated and disillusioned P'Gell turned to a life of crime. She used her beauty and feminine allure to seduce and marry a succession of wealthy and influential men, but her marriages never lasted long. Her husbands always died under mysterious circumstances, and P'Gell then used the inherited wealth to build herself a growing criminal empire based in Istanbul.


    P'Gell was created by famed cartoonist Will Eisner in 1946. She quickly became the most prominent femme fatale in the Spirit's rogue's gallery.
