This week’s Female Furies #1 brings Kirby’s Fourth World strikeforce back to the forefront of the DCU (and, not coincidentally touches on some very topical elements in their revised story.)  Everybody’s fave-rave Fury is Barda, Mister Miracle’s beautiful six-foot-two inch blushing bride, who will shatter every bone in your body should the need strike, but all of Kirby’s Apokaliptic women are impressive as heck.  Of course, your humble MS-QOTD is known for making you play favorites, leading to today’s furious query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) knows that the answer is Stompa, because it’s the most fun to say, asking: Which of the Female Furies, other than Big Barda, is the best of them all?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


    • Well, yeah, but the others are named Mad Harriet, Lashina, Bernadeth, and Big Barda. They also have a girl named Gilotina and a roller-skater called Speed Queen. It’s rife with name awesomeness…
