Deathcry was one of the feature characters in the 2011 three-issue limited series Chaos War: Dead Avengers.
Fictional character biography
Deathcry's true name was taken by royal decree for reasons yet unrevealed, but it was heavily hinted that she was the daughter of Deathbird. When the Earth hero team Avengers defeated the Kree, the Empress Lilandra Neramani feared for the team's safety should the Kree attempt revenge.
Lilandra then orders Deathcry, by the same decree that took her name, to join the Avengers as their protector.[volume & issue needed] Deathcry served with the Avengers for several months while hiding her youth. She eventually softened and revealed her true age as she formed close friendships with her teammates Vision and Hercules.[volume & issue needed]
Later, after the Avengers survive an attack by the villain Immortus, Deathcry decides her services are no longer required. She bade Hercules to return her to the Shi'ar Empire, where she remained.[volume & issue needed]
Eventually finding herself in the Kree empire, Deathcry is captured and charged with multiple murders. She was kept in a Kree high-security prison. She is selected to join Peter Quill's 'dirty dozen' team to fight the Phalanx.
Unfortunately, her Shi'ar nature causes her to be hostile to Captain Universe when the man kills two of her opponents. Believing that taking another person's kill is an insult to that person, she attacks Captain Universe who raises an energy ball in self-defense. Deathcry hits this ball and explodes.
During the Chaos War storyline, Deathcry is among the dead people that return from the dead following what happened to the death realms. It was revealed that her true name is Sharra Neramani and that she is the niece of Lilandra and apparently the daughter of Deathbird as was previously implied. Lilandra had stripped Sharra of her name and assigned her to protecting the Avengers on Earth when she killed a member of her own platoon in a drunken rage over a mutual lover. Is possible that she, with Swordsman and Yellowjacket could have survived too, but is not clear.
