  1. Phenix

    Phenix is a French comic book character created by Luciano Bernasconi for French publisher Editions Lug in 1978. Phenix is the secret identity of Chicago socialite Patricia Hope. As the masked, leather-clad, bike-riding Phenix, she fights drug dealers, terrorists and other kinds of urban menaces. When she was in college, Patricia Hope, the daughter of a billionaire couple, was raped by an assailant still unknown today. She slipped into a deep coma that lasted nine months, and emerged like a phenix from its ashes miraculously transformed, with a body and mind optimized to superhuman levels. After inheriting her parents' fortune and charitable foundation, Patricia became a leading Chicago socialite by day, and the black-clad, bike-riding crime fighter known as Phenix by night. Phenix occasionally helps Father Brown's local church; after breaking up with young Dr. Bob Carter, Patricia now shares her life with Dr. Douglas Sullivan, head of the E.R. at Saint Justin's Hospital. Phenix also teams up on a semi-regular basis with Sibilla. Eight episodes of Phenix were originally published in the digest-sized magazine Special-Rodeo Nos. 74-78. The series was then discontinued. The character returned in 2002 in Fantask No. 5, before migrating to Yuma vol. 2, No. 1, in a series of new adventures, written by Jean-Marc Lofficier and drawn by various artists, including Frédéric Grivaud, Mariano De La Torre and Juan Roncagliolo Berger. The series stopped when Yuma was cancelled with No. 10 in 2003.
