Gilotina is a fictional character, an extraterrestrial martial artist in publications from DC Comics.

Publication history[edit]

Created by Jack Kirby, Gilotina first appeared in Mister Miracle vol. 1 #8 (May 1972).

Fictional character biography[edit]

A member of the original group of Female Furies, Gilotina was later bumped to junior member status and worked with the other younger members of the group: Malice Vundabar, Speed Queen, and Bloody Mary.[1] Gilotina had the ability to chop through anything with her hands, hence the name, but is also armed with swords. She was eventually abandoned by the Furies after a failed mission, and joined Project Cadmus. A short time later she rejoined the Furies.

Rejoining the Furies, Gilotina was able to rise in their ranks. As field leader of a team of Furies, she was put in charge of testing a new potential recruit named Precious. She and the Furies battled Precious, but Precious proved unworthy and was quickly slain. After the abduction of Supergirl, Gilotina led a team of Furies into battle against their former leader Big Barda and her ally Wonder Woman. What became of her team of Furies after their defeat is unknown.

DC Rebirth[edit]

After the events of DC Rebirth, Gilotina returned as a member of the Female Furies sent by Darkseid to collect magical artifacts to revitalize his strength.[2]

Powers and abilities[edit]
