In the Comics

Female Furies as they appear in the comics.

Led by Granny Goodness, the Furies are fanatically loyal to Darkseid. Born and trained on the dark world of Apokolips, the Female Furies were the elite members of Darkseid's Special Powers Force. The membership of the Furies included Mad Harriet, whose fists were armed with power spikes that could cut through almost anything; Stompa, whose heavy metal boots could flatten or crush the densest material; Lashina, whose body was wrapped in an arsenal of unique straps capable of destructive actions; Bernadeth, whose fahren-knife was capable of barbecuing her foes - from the inside; and Big Barda, leader of the group, whose incredible physical strength was as great a weapon as the awesome dimensional spanning mega rod she carried.

Big Barda was a member–being groomed for leadership–until she escaped to Earth with Mister Miracle. During their first appearance, Lashina, Stompa, Bernadeth, and Mad Harriet attempted to bring Big Barda back to Apokolips. However, Barda was eventually able to convince her former teammates to help her, and the four Furies stayed on Earth for quite some time. They eventually returned to Apokolips under unknown circumstances, and were punished by Granny Goodness for their betrayal.

Darkseid has used the Female Furies on several occasions, such as when they broke into a prison to rescue Glorious Godfrey, and they have battled several super-heroes, including Superman, Wonder Woman, Superboy, and the Suicide Squad.
