Powers/Abilities: Lady Morgana was a very
sorceress, capable of generating sentient animated humanoid warriors of
rock. She could easily summon spells that revealed a subject's
location. Other spells required greater exertion and concentration. She
coveted power and was quick to anger.

- Offended by the purity of love in Camelot between King Arthur and
Queen Guinevere, Lady Morgana used magic to create an army of beings of
animated rock, her Warriors of Vulcan's Forge, led by the loyal but
brutal Warlord Viper and his team of warlord underlings - Axe, Bash,
Blackwing, Lucan, Slasher and others, to overthrow the rulers and take
over the kingdom for herself. King Arthur used his knights and wizard
Merlin to protect Camelot. Casting a powerful hex, Morgana dampened Merlin's magic and
imprisoned King Arthur and his knights inside a hidden cave of glass.
(King Arthur and the Knights
of Justice#1 (fb) - BTS) - Warlord Viper captured Guinevere and swiftly
brought her to Morgana's castle where she was chained up.
(King Arthur and the Knights of Justice#1) - To counter Morgana's machinations, Merlin summoned an amateur American football team from the 20th Century as substitute knights. This was observed by Morgana inside her rock-carved castle using her magic to spy on Merlin.
(King Arthur and the Knights of Justice#2) - Merlin's
new knights, dubbed the Knights of Justice, subdued Viper's warriors
and several warlords.
Concerned, Viper consulted remotely with Morgana using the
mystical Talisman of Blood, but she ordered that the knights be brought
into the forest to be trapped, and knights Trunk and Lance were
(King Arthur and the Knights of Justice#2 - BTS) -
Morgana magically transported Blackwing's broken remains to her castle
to be eventually repaired.
(King Arthur and the Knights of Justice#3) - She
demanded information from the newly captured Trunk and Lance, and had
them chained in her dungeons. However, the substitute King Arthur
secretly arrived and freed his fellow knights and Guinevere. Morgana
brushed aside Viper's concerns about Merlin's magic when he was
confronted with Blackwing's broken body, and she instead summoned a
revealing spell that showed her new captives escaping. Angered, she
ordered Viper tackle them and the warlord left; however, Arthur found
her first. She unleashed her demonic-looking Watchdog on him but he
incapacitated it, then caused a cave-in when surrounded by Morgana's
warriors. In the chaos, the knights and Guinevere escaped, leaving
Morgana vowing revenge in the ruins of her castle.

Earth-93121 is the Marvel Comics adaptation of the "King
Arthur and the Knights of Justice" cartoon
(1992-1993). There was also a video game spin-off for Super NES
(1995) in which Morgana turns into the major end-villain
boss with a giant demonic form.
I wonder if Watchdog was one of Morgana's first efforts at creating an artificial being.

Lady Morgana may be the Earth-93121 counterpart to Earth-616's Morgan Le Fay. Otherwise, she has no known connections to:
Watchdog of Earth-93121 has no known connections to:
The monstrous-looking, pet-like Watchdog was always at
Morgana's side in her castle. When confronted by the angry substitute King Arthur,
Morgana set it upon him. At this, Watchdog increased its size (likely
due to magical means), its head inflating, and teeth and claws
extending; its eyes reddened as well. Arthur's magical armor protected
him from its teeth and he kicked it aside, wrapping it in a fallen
