History: In ancient times Evila used her sorcery to take control of the Kingdom of Egypt, then the most advanced civilisation on Earth.

In modern times she was awakened by Thunderbolt's foe the Hooded One, and came into conflict with Thunderbolt.

Comments: Thanks to Mack Murdock for providing images and information about Evila. Mack notes "DC's version of Thunderbolt didn't change anything, it merely added more on. While Thunderbolt#51 was Evila's only Silver Age appearance, she was a major villain in DC's look at Thunderbolt in the early 90's."
