REAL NAME: Aresia
MARITAL STATUS: Single
GROUP AFFILIATION: The Watchmen
WEIGHT: 123 lbs.
HISTORY: During World War II, an orphan of war survived a sinking ship by floating on a piece of the wreckage and washed up on the shores of Themyscira, where she was found by Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Adopting the little girl as one of their own, this race of skilled warrior women magically endowed her with Amazonian strength, speed, and immortality. She grew up on the island learning the Amazons’ ways of peace and love.
Meanwhile, Ares the God of War plotted revenge against his female enemies. One night he came to the island and kidnapped the newest Amazon, taking her to Hades, where he brainwashed her to hate her sisters and crave their demise. Naming her “Aresia” after himself, the dark warlord of the Underworld trained her to become a fierce champion for his cause - - the domination of the world.
Five decades later, Aresia returned to Themyscira to slay Queen Hippolyta and ended up fighting her daughter, Wonder Woman, instead. After a series of battles with Princess Diana, Aresia was shown the error of her ways via the golden lasso of truth. Once bound by it, Aresia saw Ares for what he was, and his corrupt deception over her ceased. Reunited with the Amazons, Aresia spent time healing (physically, mentally, and emotionally) from her experience and once again embraced the Amazon teachings of peace and love.
After she learned that Princess Diana was killed during a battle with the forces of Avatar, Aresia decided to return to Man’s World as an Amazon ambassador for world peace and weapon disarmament. (She holds Diana’s memory in the highest regard and does not associate with the current Wonder Woman from another timeline, believing her to be an imposter.) Aresia calls herself Fury, because of the intense hatred she feels toward war and warmongers.
POWERS & WEAPONS: Fury possesses Amazonian strength and the ability to fly, is swift enough to deflect bullets with her bracelets, and has been trained in all ancient Greek methods of hand-to-hand combat. Fury’s weapon of choice is her collapsible battlestaff, which she wears on her bracelet. In combat, Fury can be ruthless, showing little or no mercy, but because she preaches the power of peace, she never attacks without provocation and fights cautiously and only as a last resort.
PERSONALITY: Although she is attracted to males, Fury does not trust them because of her dealings with Ares. (Unknown to her, Ares is still in the picture, plotting to get her under his submission again in the near future.)
