- You were bred to be the finest warriors on Apokolips. The elite guard who stand ready to serve the almighty Darkseid!
The Female Furies are an all female military unit lead by Granny Goodness which serves as both an elite strike force and honor guard for Darkseid, Lord of Apokolips. Raised in Granny Goodness' orphanage, the Furies were taught military tactics under Goodness and assassination under Kanto. Goodness instilled fanatical loyalty in the Furies, teaching them to be loyal to her first, but for their foremost loyalty to be for Darkseid, making them willing to "Die for Darkseid".

- The Female Furies were created by writer/artist Jack Kirby.
Known Female Furies include:
- Artemiz, an archer with bio-seeking arrows. Not to be confused with the Amazon Artemis, who took the identity of Wonder Woman for a time.
- Bernadeth, sister of Desaad, armed with a burning "faren-knife". Often challenges Lashina's leadership.
- Bloody Mary, a vampire-like character with energy-draining eye-beams.
- Gilotina, a young Fury who could slice through things with karate chops, later abandoned the Furies to work with Project Cadmus.
- Knockout, a Superboy villain who, like Barda, escaped the Furies. She has super-strength and views life-or-death battle as flirting.
- Lashina is the field leader of the Furies. She is armed with flexible steel bands which she can control mentally. On one occasion, during a Furies mission to capture Mister Miracle, Lashina was betrayed by her teammate Bernadeth and became stranded on Earth. During her Earth exile, she joined the Suicide Squad under the name "Duchess". She eventually led the Suicide Squad on a mission to Apokolips, where she killed Bernadeth. Darkseid brought Bernadeth back to life and slew Lashina in turn, but has since resurrected Lashina as well.
- Mad Harriet, a cackling madwoman with razor-sharp claws.
- Malice Vundabar, the niece of Virman Vundabar. Apparently even younger than Guillotina, she resembles Alice in Wonderland, and controls a savage, disembodied mouth called Chessure.
- Speed Queen, as her name suggests, has super-speed.
- Stompa, who creates earthquakes by stamping her foot.
- Twilight's mother. Name unknown, she escaped the Furies centuries ago, and left her daughter to be raised on Earth, where she eventually became a Supergirl villain/supporting character.
- Wunda, the most recent Fury with light-based powers.
Bernadeth, Lashina, Stompa and Mad Harriet are the core members of the group, with others appearing only occasionally. These Furies (sans Bernadeth) appeared in Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost part 1, where Supergirl Kara In-Ze, in an attempt to prove herself to Superman by challenging Intergang with the help of Jimmy Olsen, unwitting stumbles upon Granny Goodness's connections with Apokolips. After trashing Intergang, Kara so inspires the wrath of Granny Goodness that the latter summons the Furies to personally annihilate Supergirl.
They also appeared in the series finale, Legacy, where at least Lashina had a relationship with Superman when he was brainwashed by Darkseid.
The Furies lastly appeared in Justice League Unlimited (this time with Bernadeth) serving Granny Goodness in her power struggle against Virman Vundabar and his lieutenants Kanto and Mantis. Shortly afterwards, a resurrected Darkseid (following his death at the end of the Justice League episode Twilight) returns and puts an end to the war.
