For other uses of the word Succubus, see Succubus (disambiguation).

Scarlet Succubus was a character mentioned in passing in the Empowered English-language manga written and illustrated by Adam Warren. Described by the creator of the graphic novel as a “sexy superhero comedy", Empowered began to take shape in 2004 with a series of commissioned sketches of a damsels in distress; these illustrations became the basis for short comic stories that helped develop the characters for the Empowered series.


Empowered chronicles the story of the titular character "Empowered", whose civilian name is Elissa Megan Powers, and is more commonly referred to as "Emp" (originally after initials, E.M.P.). Empowered is a young, blond girl who is highly self-conscious about her appearance. Her concern over her appearance frequently serves as a dominant aspect of her career as a superheroine, in that her suit is composed of an extremely thin material known within the series as a "hypermembrane"; a material so thin and clingy that it outlines every curve of her body. Additionally, while her suit can provide her with several fantastic powers, such as super strength and directed energy blasts, these enhancements will usually fail if her suit becomes too damaged. Due to the fragility of her suit, this has happened frequently, and thus, she has earned herself a reputation for being ineffective and easily defeated.

Scarlet Succubus

The Scarlet Succubus is a female costumed heroine that has not been shown within the Empowered series thus far. She was mentioned by Emp in the episode "Do-Me"-Riffic! as an example of a female superhero that deliberately wears minimal clothing in an attempt to appear sexy.[1] Other than this reference, nothing else has been revealed about this character, her powers, or why she decided to call herself Scarlet Succubus.
