And they seem kind of furious…



Source: THE FEMALE FURIES LASH OUT AGAINST DARKSEID

The Female Furies made their first appearance in 1971's Mister Miracle #6 attempting to bring their now most famous member, Big Barda, back to Apokolips. The deadly Special Powers Force of Darkseid, led by the ruthless Granny Goodness apparently weren't always so infamous, and an upcoming mini-series looks to tell that tale.

Writing the six-issue tale about the Furies before we knew them is Cecil Castellucci, with art by Adriana Melo. The cover for the first issue is by Mitch Gerads. Here's how the title is described:

Big Barda, Aurelie, Mad Harriet, Lashina, Bernadeth, and Stompa have all been raised to be the most ruthless, cutthroat fighting force on Apokolips, but they're always left behind with Granny Goodness every time the boys go to war. With the arrival of the Forever People, who are destroying Darksied's [sic] army, Granny things it's time for her girls to throw their gauntlets in the ring.

Why is it "the FEMALE Furies"? If they're ripping off Greek myth as seems likely, (no knock there), it would be redundant, the Furies always were female. And Kirby would have known that.

Continuing the current trend of turning female villains into anti-heroes?

Everyone loves characters whose names are an alliteration

He evidently knew something about Norse/Germanic mythology, and Greek mythology, why is it so unreasonable to think he knew something of Aztec mythology when one of the biggest things he did for DC was based in the same concept that underpinned that mythology?

He probably knew but assumed the general public wouldn't know.

Plus alliteration. :)

In that case, he was probably right, though these days comic book fans are older than his target audience, and likely to know these things.
