TAMING THE BEASTMASTER
From 1961's ADVENTURES OF THE JAGUAR #3, here's the first appearance of "the Sea Circe from Space" Kree-Nal, who as seen here is trying to transform/enslave the hero a la the mythological Circe. By the story's end he sends her back to the sea's depths (where her people, a race of aquatic aliens, ended up when their spacecraft crashed there). However, she falls in love with the Jaguar and in all the rest of her appearances she becomes a sporadically-seen ally.
