Cutey Bunny, also known as Cutie Bunnie and QT Bunny, is a furry superheroine bunny from a humorous line of underground comics created by artist Joshua Quagmire. She first appeared in Army Surplus Komikz in 1982 and has since appeared in other titles such as Critters.
Cutey Bunny is secretly Cpl. Kelly O'Hare, a special agent for the United States, based in Washington, D.C., and employed by an unspecified branch of the United States Armed Forces. She is dispatched on special missions, usually directly by the President, and encounters action and adventure.
Kelly is drawn as a shapely anthropomorphic bunny, often dressed in something fairly revealing, as befits Quagmire's sense of burlesque. Superhero Multiverse describes her as "the world's first African-American rabbit superheroine". She sometimes wears her hair in cornrows. She is very bright, athletic, friendly, and clean-cut, usually uttering no oaths stronger than "Gosh-a-rootie!"
Cutey's powers derive from her amulet, a gift from Ra, the ancient Egyptian god of the sun. (Ra is an occasional guest star in the comic; much is made about his befuddlement with modern-day technology, such as toasters and electric coffeepots.) The amulet allows Kelly to change instantly into any one of about six different costumes, and gain the powers associated with each; for example, as "Rocket Bunny", she can fly with the aid of rocket-powered boots, and as "Samurai Bunny", she wears chainmail armor and can wield a katana to deadly effect.
Frequent adversaries include Vicky Feldhyser, a kinky lesbian fox who's described as a "four-ple" agent (one level beyond "triple") for various intelligence services, and "Uncle Joe", a transparent caricature of Josef Stalin.
Cutey Bunny should not be confused with her British counterpart and occasional co-star, Cutie Bunny, whose secret identity is Heather ap-Glendower (or -Glendowner), and who has no special powers beyond great athleticism. Heather has more Caucasian features and blonde hair.
