vega-femizons-715-seated-upper-obPowers/Abilities: The head of security in a realm of powerful women, Syrani is almost certainly a skilled and powerful warrior, with athletic abilities that are far advanced of modern human women and possibly even superhumanly so. 

    She was likely highly experienced in various forms of armed and unarmed combat, but she was notably skilled in espionage/intrigue, and she recognized Lyra's behavior as dangerous and uncovered her plot with Mogon.

    She commanded an unspecified number of Security Police, all of whom shaved their heads or who were otherwise bald to mirror Syrani.

Height: Unrevealed (she was never directly seen next to Lyra, but she was likely at least 5'9" if not 6' tall)
Weight: Unrevealed (perhaps 150-170 lbs., especially if her muscles were extraordinarily dense)
Eyes: Unrevealed (black-and-white comic, and her face was never closely shown)
Hair: Bald, with dark eyebrows (possibly associated with makeup or tattoo)

History: See the Femizons profile for past history of her world.

(Savage Tales#1/2 (fb) - BTS) - At the end of the 22nd century (see comments), the Sisterhood took over Earth. Wishing to make certain that man would never rule again, the Sisterhood kept ten percent of the men as slaves to serve the needs of the Sisterhood, as well as to allow the continuation of the human race. The remaining ninety percent of all the male children were abandoned in the wilderness...where they were left to perish. 

    The Sisterhood kept a supply of sperm in their Temple of Genetics, guarded by High Priestesses, which they used to maintain the population.

(Savage Tales#1/2 (fb) - BTS) - Vega and her sister, Lyra, were born from the same sperm vial. At some point, Vega became Queen of the United Sisterhood Alliance, and Lyra became princess. Syrani served as head of security to Vega.syrani-715-security

(Savage Tales#1/2 (fb) - BTS) - Mogon of the Hills, a member of a civilized tribe of men sworn to restore the balance to society, learned of Lyra's forbidden history-detailing brain tapes. Realizing that Lyra might be sympathetic to his cause, Mogon arranged to become Lyra's slave.

(Savage Tales#1/2) - Syrani watched silently behind Vega as Lyra defeated another female warrior and then, urged by Vega, struck down her fallen foe. As a reward, Vega granted Lyra a handsome male slave (Mogon). When Vega's advisor, Syrani, noted that Lyra seemed less than pleased by her generous offering, Vega silenced Syrani, and Lyra noted that Syrani was just jealous because Syrani was the princess. 

    After Lyra departed, Syrani nonetheless caution Vega that, even though Lyra was birthed from the same sperm vial as Vega, Lyra should be watched. Vega told  Syrani that she exaggerated the danger, and she asked what the queen had to fear. Syrani informed her that there was growing unrest within the Sisterhood and that she could not be too cautious.

(Savage Tales#1/2 - BTS) - Revealing his history and goal of destroying the Temple of Genetics and its sperm supply (presumably to force women to seek out relationships with men and eliminate the segregated societies), Mogon convinced the initially defiant Lyra to join his cause as he was one of the lost men of whom she had dreamed.

syrani-715-security-mogon(Savage Tales#1/2 (fb) - BTS) - Syrani remained suspicious of Lyra, and her Security Police apparently learned of a planned meeting with Mogon's tribe, whom they then presumably ambushed and replaced. 

(Savage Tales#1/2 - BTS) - When Mogon and Lyra traveled to meet with his tribe, the Security Police attacked them; Lyra and Mogon slew the police and then returned to their separate chambers.

(Savage Tales#1/2 (fb) - BTS) - Informed of Syrani's suspicions, Vega had Lyra -- minutes after her return -- summoned before her.

(Savage Tales#1/2) - Syrani accused Lyra of highest treason against the queen and Sisterhood. Proclaiming her blood as royal as Vega's, Lyra instead drew her sword and asked to face her accuser (Syrani) in combat. However, Syrani instead then had her guards bring in the captive Mogon, and Vega explained that as Syrani had accused them both of conspiring against her crown. Vega proclaimed that the only way to disprove Syrani's claim was to run her sword through the slave. 

    Wishing Lyra to slay him so that their cause could live (as they both knew that there were others like Mogon hidden in the hills), Mogon goaded Lyra, prompting her to follow his lead and stab her sword through Mogon's abdomen.

    Vega told Syrani that she had been wrong -- "Though she is strong-willed and reckless, she is still my sister!" However, neither Vega nor Syrani could not see the tears in Lyra's eyes as she departed. 

(Savage Tales#1/2 - BTS) - In privacy, Lyra considered that there were other men like Mogon out there and that she would seek them out and find them.

CommentsCreated by Stan "the Man" Lee and "Jazzy" John Romita.
    Per my understanding, Stan Lee owns the Femizons, and Marvel can't even refer to them by that name anymore. Subsequent stories have diverged the realities, and the associated female-dominated groups are instead referred to as the Sisterhood.

    In case it's not clear, Thundra is derived from the Femizons/Sisterhood, and she is originally from Earth-715. However, there have been numerous temporal divergences, and Thundra current dwells on Earth-8009, while Lyra and the Femizons in this story have not been seen again. While not directly confirmed, Thundra's daughter, Lyra, is almost certainly an homage to this Lyra.
    I've always suspected that Thundra is a descendant of Lyra, perhaps even via her union with Mogon, but there has never been anything to indicate that; it's just speculation on my part.

    On the matter of the name Femizons, its interesting that the title of the story is "The Fury of the Femizons" and the introductory text names them as the Femizons, but the main story and the people refer only to the Sisterhood. 

    There is an existing Femizons profile, but it contains a lot of information relevant to the various alternate counterparts. I'll cover the Femizons and Mogon, at least, and then cover Earth-715, and then move on to one of the variant/divergent realities, and go from there...I'll probably work on profile on Thundra during that time, and I'll try to sort out if/when the term Femizonia was used.

    Here's the history of Femizonia courtesy of the Thundra profile. When I profile Earth-715, I will sort out all of the references; I'm not 100% certain this is fully accurate for the Femizons' world, but I'll do the research as I go.

In this world, the battle of the sexes turned literal over the centuries as women genetically enhanced themselves to become equal to men, and men strengthened themselves via radiation treatments. That radiation had the side effect of sterilizing the children they subsequently conceived, and it became impossible for men and women to have children together. By the end of the 22nd century, society had split formally into two camps, men and women, and cataclysmic wars had occurred between the sides. Each side developed its own methods of reproduction, men drawing on parthogenetic cloning, and women using genetically manipulated sperm samples held in their Temples of Genetics. North America was ruled for a century by a royal sisterhood, but after the royal family’s assassination and the destruction of the Genetics Temples (forcing the females to rely on cloning and genetic manipulation to create young) in the early half of the 23rd century, the USR (United Sisterhood Republic) assumed power.

Thundra's original OHotMU profile noted the event that led to the future of the Femizons/Sisterhood to have taken place at the end of the 20th century (which was still in the future at the time of that 1982-ish profile).

    Syrani originally had a sub-profile in the Femizons profile I originally posted 11/21/2001.
