Granny Goodnesssrc

The Female Furies are an all-female military unit lead by Granny Goodness which serves as both an elite strike force and honor guard for Darkseid, Lord of Apokolips.


Raised in Granny Goodness' orphanage, the Furies were taught military tactics under Goodness and assassination under Kanto. Goodness instilled fanatical loyalty in the Furies, teaching them to be loyal to her first, but for their foremost loyalty to be for Darkseid, making them willing to "Die for Darkseid".


Known Female Furies include:

  • Bloody Mary, a vampire-like character with energy-draining eye-beams.
  • Gilotina, a young Fury who could slice through things with karate chops, later abandoned the Furies to work with Project Cadmus.
  • Knockout, a Superboy villain who, like Barda, escaped the Furies. She has super-strength and views life-or-death battle as flirting.
  • Lashina is the field leader of the Furies. She is armed with flexible steel bands which she can control mentally. On one occasion, during a Furies mission to capture Mister Miracle, Lashina was betrayed by her teammate Bernadeth and became stranded on Earth. During her Earth exile, she joined the Suicide Squad under the name "Duchess". She eventually led the Suicide Squad on a mission to Apokolips, where she killed Bernadeth. Darkseid brought Bernadeth back to life and slew Lashina in turn, but has since resurrected Lashina as well.
  • Mad Harriet, a cackling madwoman with razor-sharp claws.
  • Stompa, who creates earthquakes by stamping her foot.
  • Twilight's mother. Name unknown, she escaped the Furies centuries ago, and left her daughter to be raised on Earth, where she eventually became a Supergirl villain/supporting character.
  • Wunda, the most recent Fury with light-based powers.
