In her one and only appearance (All Good Comics, Fox, 1944), the Purple Tigress is already making headlines and stirring up public curiosity. The narrator poses some intriguing questions:
"Who is the Purple Tigress? A whole city is piqued by the question. Out of nowhere, the Purple Tigress, a beautiful, cat-like woman appears to cut down crime. Like her jungle namesake she stalks venomous denizons [sic] of the wild. Is she maniac or angel? Has she a hidden lair, living like a wild animal, or...? -- Or maybe the story will tell you!!"
The narrator's rather pointed questions are never really answered (other than the Purple Tigress' real name).
