Here's the first Golden Age anti-heroine...
...who both helped and hindered mankind as the whim struck her!
And, she had a real knack for creating zombie slaves, as you'll see in this tale from Weird Comics #2 (1940)!
While this particular story has a timeless, "fairy-tale" feel to it, later chapters were firmly set in the then-present of the 1940s.
Credited to the nom-de-plume "Sandra Swift", this tale was illustrated by Louis Cazeneuve, who co-created Timely's Red Raven and produced almost 300 stories and covers in almost every genre during his ten years (1939-49) in the comics field.
