Spider-Woman #40 (1981)

Spider-Woman gets a new animal-based enemy: Flying Tiger.  He’s an assassin hired by Vietnamese General Nguyen Coy, who is the evil uncle of Karma from Marvel Team Up Annual #__, also written by Chris Claremont.  Best of all, he’s black.

I can’t think of any other black Marvel villain form this time period, except maybe Prowler who ended up being more a hero than a villain.  So that’s cool.

Creators: Chris Claremont and Stephen Leialoha
