Bella (Tina Margo and Wanita Somaborudo) was a henchwoman in 7 episodes of the Japanese action adventure TV series "Spider Man".  Tina Margo appeared as Bella in episodes 35-38, and Wanita Somaborudo appeared in episodes 39-41.  The episodes aired in 1979, and were the last episodes of the series.  The show was originally knwon as Supaidaman.

Bella was a henchwoman along with Rita (Rie Rinehardt).  They were ancient Amazonian warriors who were ressurected by Professor Monster (Mitsuo Ando).  Professor Monster is a space emperor who leads the evil Iron Cross Army.

Rita used a bow and arrow, while Bella was armed with a machine gun.  Their goal is to take out Spider Man (Shinji Todo).

Episode 41

After Amazoness fails to kill Spider Man, Professor Monster sends Rita and Bella attempt to execute her.  Rita hits her in the arm and although Bella manages to hit her target, Amazoness still manages to load herself into a piloted missle in an attempt to make a suicidal attack on Interpol.  The missle is destroyed by Spider Man.

When the missle launches Professor Monster, Rita and Bella flee their base only to be confronted by Spider Man.  He dispatches Bella by knocking her out and rolling down the hill.  He then runs after Rita.  After a failed arrow misses the mark, Spider attaches his web to her throat and flings her through the air.  She lands on the ground dead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rita and Bella are pretty obscure on the internet.  In one of the only places I found information on them, Rita and Bella's identity is switched.  Rita was played by one actress in all 7 episodes, while Bella was played by two different actresses, and IMDB shows this.  Rita is therefore played by Rie Rinehart.  Either that, or IMDB is incorrect and that needs to be addressed.
