The Female Furies are a group of fictional women warriors appearing in comics published by DC Comics.

Publication history[edit]

The Female Furies first appeared in Mister Miracle #6 (February 1972) and were created by Jack Kirby.[1]

Fictional team history[edit]

The Female Furies, brutally trained and led by Granny Goodness, are fanatically loyal to Darkseid. However, infighting among the Furies is commonplace, most typically to appoint a leader to the group.[1]

After former leader Big Barda defected to Earth to be with her lover, Mister Miracle, Darkseid gave a kill order on the pair, prompting the rest of the Female Furies to strike. First, Mad Harriet and Stompa ambushed Barda but vanished after weakening her. Soon after, Barda found and grabbed Lashina before she was able to attack, though Lashina escaped Barda's grip. A fight quickly ensued, though Lashina teleported away when Barda managed to defeat her. After tracking down a Mother Box to Funky Flashman's residence, the Furies, this time with Bernadeth, appeared. Realizing that they had been tricked, the Furies destroyed the house, though Funky Flashman managed to escape by throwing his assistant at the warriors. Having failed to kill either Barda or Mister Miracle, the Furies returned to Apokolips.[2]

Later, when Barda had traveled back to Apokolips, she recruited dozens of Female Furies to help her rescue Mister Miracle. Gilotina seduced a guard and killed him, allowing the other Furies to storm Section Zero. Elsewhere, Lashina took the section director's post in order to discover where Mister Miracle was held captive in the section. The Furies ambushed Granny Goodness, who had been holding a viewing party for Mister Miracle's trial by combat with a mysterious creature called the Lump. Bernadeth held the assassin Kanto at bay with her fahren-knife, while an enraged Barda nearly killed Granny Goodness until she learned Mister Miracle had survived. Reunited, Barda and Mister Miracle, along with Bernadeth, Lashina, Stompa, and Mad Harriet, returned to Earth.[3]

On Earth, the Furies had little time to relax as they were soon incapacitated by the World Protective League. When they awoke, they found themselves trapped in a cage behind thick glass. They easily escaped due to Mad Harriet's claws and Stompa's boots. They also freed Mike McCracken of the All-Nations Agency. They were soon ambushed by a security patrol, though the Furies easily disposed of them. The Furies helped to defeat the Head of the World Protective League, and Mike McCracken sabotaged the building so that it would blow up in four hours. After retrieving her mega-rod, Barda teleported the group to safety.[4]

The Furies, without Mad Harriet, later participated in Mister Miracle's tricks, using their weapons to show great feats by the escape artist. They also joined in the battle against Doctor Bedlam and his animates.[5] The group was next seen at the beach where they beat up some marines for interrupting their swimming.[6] Lashina and Stompa later helped Barda and Ted Brown clear up a new location for Mister Miracle's act.[7] Orion later mentioned that Lashina and the Furies had been called to join New Genesis in the war against Apokolips.[8]

Under unknown circumstances, the Female Furies left Barda on Earth and returned to Apokolips where they were presumably punished for their betrayal. They were temporarily assigned to command a unit of automated battle machines. This greatly upset the Furies, who attempted to rebel. They were subdued along with Granny Goodness by Apokoloptian soldiers with electric jolts.[9]

The Female Furies eventually regained Darkseid's trust, and he assigned them the task of retrieving Glorious Godfrey from Belle Reve Penitentiary. He appointed Lashina as new leader of the Furies, to Bernadeth's dismay. The Furies traveled to Earth and broke into the prison, battling various members of the Suicide Squad and easily capturing their target. As the Furies opened a Boom Tube to return to Apokolips, Bernadeth betrayed Lashina, leaving her stranded on Earth. Lashina briefly took the codename Duchess and joined the Suicide Squad until she was able to find a way to return to her planet.[10]

Lashina recruited several members of the Squad into helping her return to Apokolips, and kidnapped several others (including Big Barda).[11] When on Apokolips, the Suicide Squad battled through waves of Parademons. They were eventually confronted by the Female Furies and other members of Darkseid's Elite.[12] During the battle, Stompa battled Vixen but ended up getting defeated by Barda. Mad Harriet fought and defeated Shade, the Changing Man by using his own energies against him. Newcomer Artemiz and her Cyberpak battled Nightshade, though the Fury suffered defeat. Bernadeth waited until Lashina had exhausted herself battling others, then struck her with her dagger. However, Lashina eventually defeated Bernadeth and snapped her neck, killing her. This delighted Granny Goodness, who welcomed Lashina home.[13] When asked what they should do with the remaining members of the Suicide Squad, Lashina replied, "Let's kill just kill." Before they were able to finish off the Squad, the Forever People appeared with the Suicide Squad members that had remained on Earth. Their interference allowed Big Barda and the other captives to fight back, though the battle came to an end when Darkseid appeared. Enraged that Lashina had brought humans to Apokolips, he revived Bernadeth and used his Omega Beams to disintegrate Lashina. He then revived the fallen Suicide Squad members and allowed them to leave Apokolips.[14]

Much later, Granny Goodness held a combat demonstration at her orphanage, displaying Bernadeth, Stompa, Mad Harriet, and Artemiz as they battled a group of Series-9 Drones. The demonstration was interrupted by Darkseid, who revealed Mister Miracle had returned to Apokolips, and he wanted the Furies to kill him. He revived Lashina, though as punishment he kept Bernadeth as leader. The Furies managed to quickly defeat Mister Miracle and deliver him to Darkseid's throne room.[15] After his comrades aided his escape, Mister Miracle defeated the Female Furies using his miracle mister soap.[16]

A second wave of Female Furies, including long-time member Gilotina, Malice Vundabar, Bloody Mary, and Speed Queen, later appeared, causing trouble for Hawk and Dove. The Furies made an appearance as antagonists in Grant Morrison's acclaimed Seven Soldiers event, specifically in the Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle mini-series. Here, they are all given human forms along with Darkseid and his other minions, with the Furies all becoming prostitutes with Granny Goodness acting as their pimp. They attempt to entice Shilo Norman, the second Mr. Miracle when he arrives at the Dark Side Club searching for Darkseid himself. They knock Shilo out, and then stuff him in the trunk of a car while he is bound and gagged, eventually torturing and setting him ablaze in a forest. This is later revealed to be a horrid illusion brought about by Darkseid's Omega Sanction.

They are later shown aiding Granny in her scheme to overthrow the Greek Gods, kidnapping Dr. Helena Sandsmark in order to antagonize her daughter Wonder Girl during the events of her solo mini-series. After the deaths of Mister Miracle and Metron during the Death of the New Gods, the Source stated Darkseid was the only remaining New God. The only Furies who were not visibly killed, currently, are Lashina, Stompa, Gilotina, Malice, Wunda, and Artemiz; although at the end of Death of the New Gods it is reiterated that all the New Gods are dead. While the New Gods were being killed off, Granny Goodness orchestrated the Amazon-American war to pose as Queen Hippolyta to train women (such as Harley Quinn and Holly Robinson) under the auspices of becoming Amazon warriors into new Female Furies. This seems to conflict directly with Terror Titans, where Lashina (in her human form), is shown to be one of the villains running the Dark Side Club with the Clock King. She is last seen being electrocuted into unconsciousness by Static, who then presumably turns her over to the authorities with the rest of the upper level Dark Side Club players.

After the end of the Fourth World, in the Final Crisis of mankind, the corrupted Mary Marvel released the Anti-Life Equation and creates new Female Furies from Earth's heroines and villainesses, including Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Giganta and Batwoman.

The New 52[edit]

The New 52 (a 2011 reboot of the DC Comics universe) introduced a brand new Fury named Sweet Leilani. Granny Goodness sent Leilani to Earth in order to retrieve a Mother Box. She discovered that it was in the new O.M.A.C.'s possession. After a battle, Leilani was defeated and quickly retreated, vowing to return with the other Female Furies.[17] Under unknown circumstances, Sweet Leilani left Darkseid's employ along with fellow teammates Enchanthrax, Killsandra, and Thumpa, and formed the Femmes Fatales. Together, they joined the Cult of Yuga Khan. The cult's leader, Aagog, sent the Femmes Fatales to Earth in order to capture Beautiful Dreamer of the Forever People in hopes to resurrect Yuga Khan. After suffering defeat by the Forever People, the unconscious Femmes Fatales were gathered by Lashina and Granny Goodness, the latter of whom mentioned that a war was approaching and that "All they need is the kind of love only Granny can give."[18]

During the Darkseid War, Lashina and Kanto went to Earth in search of the amazon Myrina Black, who had given birth to Darkseid's child, Grail.[19] After Darkseid's death, Lashina, Kanto, and Kalibak encountered Wonder Woman, Mr. Miracle, and several other heroes.[20] The New Gods were close to defeating the heroes until Big Barda appeared, which drove the villains back. Barda proposed a peace treaty with Lashina, but Lashina refused, declaring that the Furies would never stop hunting her down.[21]

Later, Barda returned to Apokolips and made a pact with the Furies: Barda would return to the group if they helped her defeat Grail and protect Mr. Miracle. While Grail and the newly revived, enslaved Darkseid were about to defeat Wonder Woman, Mr. Miracle, and the other heroes, Barda appeared through a boom tube alongside Lashina, Stompa, Bernadeth, Mad Harriet, Steppenwolf, Kalibak, and Kanto. Working together with the heroes, the Furies were able to defeat Grail and separate Darkseid from the Anti-Life Equation. In the ensuing explosion, Darkseid and Grail both vanish. Big Barda revealed the truth to Mr. Miracle and left with the other Furies back to Apokolips.[22]

DC Rebirth[edit]

After the events of Darkseid War, Lex Luthor became ruler of Apokolips. Granny Goodness, along with the Furies, remained loyal to Darkseid, and awaited his return on the outskirts of Apokolips. A Mother Box later mysteriously teleported Lois Lane to Apokolips. Granny Goodness, along with Lashina, Stompa, and Mad Harriet, as well as several other unnamed Furies, took Lois captive. However, after being ambushed by a Dredge Worm, Lois managed to win over the Furies by aiding them in battle. Granny invited Lois to join the Furies and replace a fallen Fury. When a different Fury opposed Lois joining, Granny reminded her of Alianna Hubbard, the first human to join their ranks. Later, Granny offered Lois Lane some cooked meat and reminded her that the Furies are family.[23]

Granny Goodness and the Furies, with Lois, then made their way for the main citadel of Apokolips. Along the way, they discovered Kalibak, who had captured Superman and Lex Luthor. When Granny Goodness scolded Kalibak, he attacked, and a battle between the Furies and Kalibak's forces ensued. During the battle, Lois Lane rescued Superman, who attacked Kalibak. Before he could be defeated, Kalibak used his machine to absorb the fires from Apokolips. This severely weakened Superman, though the battle escalated when Superman's son rode in on the Hunger Dogs of Apokolips.[24]

As the battle raged on, Lashina and Mad Harriet attacked Superman while Granny fought Kalibak. When Lois Lane jumped to Superman's defense, the Furies turned on her, claiming that by caring for a man she was belittling the progress that the Furies had made. However, Lois managed to defeat the Furies with her spear. Later, Lashina, Stompa, and Mad Harriet were seen dressed in rags in a prison cell after Superman took leadership of Apokolips.[25]

Later, Darkseid freed the Female Furies under unknown circumstances. He sent the Furies, now with Bernadeth and Gilotina, to Turkey in search of his missing artifacts. This led to a confrontation with Wonder Woman's lover Steve Trevor and his team, the Oddfellows.[26]

The Oddfellows somehow managed to defeat the Furies, capturing both Lashina and Mad Harriet. Bernadeth, Stompa, and Gilotina reported back to Darkseid without the relics. Furious, Darkseid threatened to kill the trio, though he explained he still had use for them.[27] Both Lashina and Mad Harriet refused to answer Wonder Woman's questioning about Darkseid's plans which led to Wonder Woman freeing the two Furies and attempting to battle them for answers. The battle was interrupted by Darkseid, who had transported a chunk of the A.R.G.U.S. headquarters to his lair in the Amazon jungle.[28] In the ensuing chaos, the Female Furies battled the soldiers of A.R.G.U.S. and later fled when Darkseid was apparently killed by Wonder Woman.[29]

Later, the Furies attended the birth of Mister Miracle's and Big Barda's child, Jacob. Bernadeth allowed Mister Miracle to borrow her Fahren-Knife in order to cut the newborn free from Barda's indestructible umbilical cord.[30] Months later, Bernadeth attended the conference to discuss peace between Apokolips and New Genesis.[31]

At some point, Granny Goodness had taken interest in Harley Quinn. While Quinn was on vacation, Granny sent Lashina and Bernadeth to recruit the antihero into the Female Furies. She later assigned her to capture the escaped prisoner and former Fury, Petite Tina.[32] Harley Quinn eventually failed as a Female Fury, and she and Tina were captured and tortured by Bernadeth.[33] Harley was immune to Bernadeth's mind-wiping machine, and she and Petite Tina escaped Apokolips to return to Earth.[34]

Membership[edit]

Core members[edit]

Member First appearance Description
Bernadeth Mister Miracle #6 (February 1972) Bernadeth is the sister of Darkseid's primary servant Desaad, and one of the original Female Furies. After Barda left the group to be with her lover Mister Miracle, Bernadeth attempted to take over leadership. However, Darkseid appointed Lashina as leader. During their first mission without Barda, Bernadeth betrayed Lashina and left her on Earth to die. Lashina returned to Apokolips with the Suicide Squad, and eventually killed Bernadeth. Darkseid, appalled that Lashina brought outsiders to Apokolips, resurrected Bernadeth and disintegrated Lashina. Lashina was later revived by Darkseid, and the two have shared leadership. In the New 52, Bernadeth aided Big Barda in defeating Grail in exchange for Barda's return to the Furies.

Bernadeth's weapon of choice is the Fahren-Knife, a dagger that burns its victims from the inside.

Big Barda Mister Miracle #4 (October 1971) Big Barda is the original leader of the Female Furies who had defected to Earth due to her love for the super hero Mister Miracle. She often battled her former companions over the years. In the New 52, during the Darkseid War, Big Barda agreed to return as leader of the Female Furies in exchange for their help in defeating Darkseid's daughter, Grail.
Lashina Mister Miracle #6 (February 1972) Lashina is one of the founding members of the Female Furies, and often the leader of the group. After Big Barda left the group to be with her lover Mister Miracle, Lashina was appointed leader by Darkseid. Bernadeth, who had desired leadership of the Furies, betrayed Lashina during their first mission and left her stranded on Earth. Lashina, who lost her memories after being shot several times, took the name Duchess and joined the Suicide Squad. Later, she regained her memories and brought the Suicide Squad to Apokolips in attempt to get revenge on Bernadeth and reclaim her leadership to the Furies. Darkseid, disgusted with Lashina for bringing humans to the planet, killed her and revived Bernadeth. Lashina was later resurrected by Darkseid, who believed she had been punished long enough. During Final Crisis, Lashina possessed the body of Catwoman. In the New 52, Lashina is a prominent member of the New Gods and joins Kanto in hunting down Myrina Black. She later appears with the other Furies after Barda makes a pact with them, exchanging her service with them for their aid in battling Grail and the mind-controlled Darkseid.

Lashina wields several razor-sharp steel whips that she can charge with electricity.

Mad Harriet Mister Miracle #6 (February 1972) Mad Harriet is a cackling madwoman and one of the original members of the Female Furies. The most unpredictable member of the group, Harriet is fiercely loyal to Darkseid. At one point, Mad Harriet is captured by the gods of New Genesis, but is eventually returned to Apokolips. She also briefly befriended Harley Quinn. During the Death of the New Gods, Mad Harriet was killed by a barrage of gunfire intended to kill Mary Marvel. She later possessed the body of Batwoman during Final Crisis. In the New 52, Mad Harriet appears with the other Female Furies as they battle Grail and the Anti-Life Equation-empowered Darkseid in exchange for Big Barda returning to the Furies.

Mad Harriet uses razor-sharp claws that emit a powerful energy. She refers to her claws as "power spikes."

Stompa Mister Miracle #6 (February 1972) Stompa is a massive woman and one of the original members of the Female Furies. Stompa is the most physically powerful and durable member of the group. At one point, Stompa was believed dead after being stabbed by Big Barda's lance, though she later appeared in healthy condition. In Final Crisis, Stompa possessed the body of Giganta, and called herself Gigantrix. In the New 52, Stompa appears with the other Female Furies as they battle Grail and the mind-controlled Darkseid in exchange for Barda's return to the Furies.

Stompa wears "Seismic Boots," which enable her to create earthquakes and tremors by stomping the ground.

She later returned to the Furies and inexplicably became their leader as they challenged newcomer Precious in battle. After the events of DC Rebirth, Gilotina was once again seen with the Furies, this time under Bernadeth's leadership.

Her appearance is a deception, as she is actually a vicious member of the junior Female Furies. While she rarely battles herself, she has the standard superhuman strength, speed, and durability of a New God. She typically uses her pet shadow demon named Chessure to slay her enemies. She was one of the few New Gods whose death was not seen during the Death of the New Gods storyline.
Speed Queen Hawk and Dove #21 (February 1991) Speed Queen is a member of the junior Female Furies. She wears roller skates that enable her to move at an incredibly fast speed. She was killed by the Infinity-Man during the Death of the New Gods storyline, and has not been seen since.

Sweet Leilani O.M.A.C. #5 (March 2012) Sweet Leilani is leader of the Femmes Fatales. She shares many similarities with Lashina, which is presumably why she has a deep hatred for her former leader.

In other media[edit]

Television[edit]

(l-r) Granny Goodness, Lashina, Stompa, and Mad Harriet as seen in Superman: The Animated Series
  • Bernadeth, Lashina, Stompa and Mad Harriet are the core members of the group, with others appearing only occasionally. These Furies (sans Bernadeth) appeared in Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost part 2, where Supergirl Kara In-Ze, in an attempt to prove herself to Superman by challenging Intergang with the help of Jimmy Olsen, unwittingly stumbles upon Granny Goodness' connections with Apokolips. After trashing Intergang, Kara so inspires the wrath of Granny Goodness that the latter summons the Furies to personally annihilate Supergirl. In part 2, the Female Furies defeat Supergirl and then Superman, who attempts to save her. Bringing Superman to Apokolips for Darkseid, the Furies again battle Supergirl, in which they are eventually defeated one-by-one. They also appeared in the series finale Legacy where at least Lashina had a relationship with Superman when he was brainwashed by Darkseid. Notably when Superman returned to Apokolips to exact revenge against Darkseid and Granny Goodness, he merely asked Lashina to get out of his way. The Female Furies preferred to fight Superman, but he defeated them by crashing into a fiery pillar.
  • The Furies appeared in Justice League Unlimited (this time with Bernadeth) serving Granny Goodness in her power struggle against Virman Vundabar and his lieutenants Kanto and Mantis. Shortly afterwards, a resurrected Darkseid (following his death at the end of the Justice League episode Twilight) returns and puts an end to the war.
  • Stompa and Lashina appeared in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode "Duel of The Double Crossers" as combatants on Warworld, under the command of Mongal as her "Furies".

Granny Goodness created the Female Furies out of young girls who came to her orphanage and were wiped clean of their memories and turned into warrior women who Granny Goodness would use for the coming war of Light and Darkness. In season 10 episode 8 "Abandoned" Granny Goodness mentioned to Tess Mercer when she came to her orphanage that these girls were abandoned souls before she "adopted" them and she is sure that they will never leave her. Later in "Abandoned", when Clark investigated Granny's orphanage he found several women fighting and as he approached them he started to weaken and found they were forging Green Kryptonite weapons and the women warriors easily subdue Clark and chain him near to a Green Kryptonite fire forge. Clark tells them he's there to save them, but Harriet says no one needs saving as much as Clark does. Clark tries to convince Harriet to let her and her sisters escape and find real homes, but Harriet says that Granny loves them more than the people do, to which Clark says that Granny is controlling them and forcing them to leave their memories behind; something a true lover wouldn't do. Harriet responds that Granny Goodness is their family and they don't know her the way the Furies do and that she will prepare them and make them stronger. Granny then arrives and tells Harriet and the Furies to stop torturing Clark and commands Harriet to take her sisters away to their rooms. After Clark avoided having his memories wiped completely by freezing a Kryptonite chain above a forge of Green Meteor rocks, Clark super-speeds to save Tess from Harriet and another Fury warrior. Clark and Tess defeat Harriet and the Fury and escape from Granny's orphanage.
