Eva Kant [1] is a fictional character in the Italian comics series starring the anti-hero Diabolik. She first appeared in Diabolik #3 (March 3, 1963).

Fictional character biography[edit]

Eva is the girlfriend and sidekick of criminal mastermind Diabolik. Eva is portrayed as an attractive blonde young woman; she drives a black E-Type Jaguar, and usually goes into action wearing a heavy sweater and pants, no mask and no revealing clothing. She usually wears her hair in an up-do. Like Diabolik, Eva is a master of disguises, (for example, she once tied up and gagged a high ranking female army general and posed as her so that she could act as an inside man).

Appearances in other media[edit]

In the 1968 movie adaptation Danger: Diabolik Eva is played by Marisa Mell, and in general wears more revealing clothing than her usual comic costume. She also wears her long hair down, abandoning her trademark hairstyle.

In the video Love is impossible of Tiromancino Eva is played by Claudia Gerini, and the director is Mario Bava.

In 2005, Eva is played by Roberta Potrich in the video for the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Fiat 600 and related Italian meetings of the same year.

Eva also appeared in the 1997 Diabolik animated television series. Her voice was provided by Sonia Mazza.
