Some accounts tell of Madame Claire Voyant, a spirit medium who could communicate with the dead. While in séance, Voyant was possessed by Satan who placed a curse upon her clients the Wangler family. When the Wangler's car crashed all were killed but James Wangler. He returned to gun down Voyant and her spirit went to Hell. Embowered by Satan and sent back to the mortal realm, Voyant was charged with harvesting the souls of the wicked and evil.

The truth was just a dark and improbable. During the late 1920's Claire Voyant came to Los Angeles to check on her sister who had fallen in with a gangster who offered the easy life, but the easy life had a price - death from the barrel of a gun. Swearing at her sister's grave that she would pay any price for vengeance, Voyant was offered a deal by a spirit claiming to be Satan. In exchange for power, beauty and immortality, she would serve as the harvester of souls who had overextended their deal with the devil, as the Black Widow.
