Silver Sablinova (of Earth-616) also known as Silver Sable is a fictional character from Marvel Comics, a female mercenary, hunter of war criminals, the leader of the Wild Pack, Monarch of Symkaria and CEO of Silver Sable International.
She is a legitimate mercenary, however her methods and motives have sometimes brought her into conflict with other superheroes.
Sandman, a reformed Spider-Man villain, was a mercenary for Silver Sable International for a long time, heading the Intruders, the squad of superpowered mercenaries in the employ of Silver Sable International. Other heroes and reformed minor villains work for Silver Sable International on occasion.
Silver's father was a Nazi hunter, considered to be the best in Europe, even working alongside James Howlett, simply known as the Canadian at the time. His wife was murdered when the home he shared with his wife and daughter was bombed. Silver begged her father to train her, so she could avenge her mother's murder, and though he tried his best to discourage her, he soon realized her potential, and she soon began joining him on hunts.
After his death, she assumed command of the Wildpack, and became founder and owner of Silver Sable International.
She met Spider-Man while trailing the Black Fox. Working with the New York City police, the Wild Pack nearly apprehended him, only to be thwarted by the inadvertent actions of Spider-Man. Eventually Spider-Man recovered the Jewels but allowed the thief to escape.
Sable was formally married to the criminal Foreigner. She turned against him after learning he was responsible for the death of her uncle Fritz.
Silver Sable International was later hired by a small South African country to neutralize the international terrorist Jason Macendale(Jack O'Lantern), suspected of training rebel forces within the client's borders. An initial team of Wild Pack members was ambushed by Macendale's men and nearly killed, leading Silver Sable to enlist aid from Spider-Man. During the course of these events, Sable became involved in a daylight robbery that resulted in the death of a young woman, an innocent bystander accompanied by her young son. The woman's death struck a responsive chord in Sable, and she dropped her other activities to hunt down the killer. His trail led to an abandoned building, where Jack O'Lantern chose to attack Silver and her men. During the final confrontation, her choice to capture the killer enabled Jack O'Lantern to escape.
Spider-Man then agreed to help Silver capture Jack O'Lantern. They tracked him to Coney Island Amusement Park, only to be ambushed by the group of costumed criminals called the Sinister Syndicate, the Beetle, the Rhino, Hydro-Man, Boomerang and the Speed Demon, who were hired to kill Macendale's pursuers. They nearly succeeded, but were stopped at the last minute by the Sandman, who allowed Sable and Spider-Man to escape. After a long battle, the three managed to defeat the criminals, but nothing was found to help them locate Jack O'Lantern.
Other heroes and reformed minor villains work for Silver Sable International on occasion.New York City; after the Symkarian revolution she personally bought the now-abandoned Symkarian embassy with intent to return it to her people when the time came and currently uses it as her base of operations.
Her last venture was to bring international mobsters in alive to Interpol for questioning. Unfortunately for her, her prey was murdered by the time she arrived at the scene, baring the insignia of Ninja Clan The Hand as a result of Daredevil having assumed leadership and directing forces across Hell's Kitchen. Outraged at having her mission compromised, Silver personally investigated the murder, eventually bringing her into contact with bionic private investigator Misty Knight, Darkforce-wielding vigilante Shroud and mercenary Paladin, all of whom were investigating similar murders throughout the city. Silver's contacts in Symkarian intelligence and American espionage eventually deduced the murders were in fact committed by angry policemen masquerading as Hand Ninja - a conclusion Misty also came to when the officers in question arranged for her to be attacked in the street. Together the four heroes put a stop to the crooked policemen's scheme and turned their attention towards the larger problem of Shadowland itself. It is presumed Silver is still operating from her New York base.
When Doctor Octopus tried to become world's savior, Silver helped Spider-Man to uncover Doc Ock's true plans and saved him from the Sinister Six. During the final battle against Doctor Octopus, Rhino attacked Spider-Man and Sable, seemingly drowning her. However, when Spider-Man chased Morbius, Madame Web said that she is still alive.
