she referred to the other Sirens as her sisters, but this was presumably a term of closeness rather than family

(Amazing Adventures II#18 (fb) - BTS) - After largely conquering Earth around 2001 AD, the Martian Masters empowered some human women as Sirens, able to mesmerize men to help collect the remaining Freemen (those humans not enslaved by the Martian Masters).
(Amazing Adventures II#19 (fb) - BTS) - The Sirens broke the wills of countless Freemen who dared defy the Martian Masters.
(Amazing Adventures II#18 (fb) - BTS) - To
avoid falling under the Sirens' spell, rebel Killraven learned to never
look directly at them.
(Amazing Adventures II#18 - BTS) - A trio of Sirens confronted Killraven
just outside Keeper (Dr. Raker)'s base in the former Grand Central Station; after he proved immune to their power, they fled
Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Howard Chaykin, and Frank McLaughlin.
