Real Name: Sharra Neramani
Search for 'Deathcry' on Amazon

Deathcry, like other Shi'ar, has vestigial remains of wings on her hands. She is also stronger than the average Shi'ar, with claws capable of tearing omnium steel like paper. She has greater pain tolerance than the average Shi'ar, and has near-invulnerable skin. Unlike other Shi'ar, she is colored purple, though whether this is due to natural color variations among the Shi'ar (where yellow/gold is the normal color) or to her having 'alien' DNA, has yet to be revealed. She is a skilled pilot of both air and spaceships, a trained fighter, and has extensive knowledge of Kree warfare and tactics. She has been trained in weapons and military strategy, and has a feral side that surfaced in battle.

Deathcry is an alien Shi'ar in the Marvel universe. It's assumed, from her name and appearance, that she's Deathbird's daughter.

Deathcry's true name was taken by royal decree for reasons yet unrevealed. (It is presumed that this edict may have something to do an issue with Deathcry's lineage.) When the Earth hero team Avengers defeated the Shi'ar enemies, the Kree, the empress Lilandra Neramani feared for the team's safety should the Kree attempt revenge.

Lilandra then ordered Deathcry, by order of the same decree which took her name, to join the Avengers as their protector. Deathcry served with the Avengers for several months, hiding her youth but she soon softened and revealed her true age as she formed close friendships with her teammates Vision and Hercules.

Later, after the Avengers survived a decimating attack by the villain Immortus, Deathcry decided her services were no longer required. She bade Hercules to return her to the Shi'ar empire, where she remained.

Somehow, later she found herself back in the Kree empire. She was captured and charged with multiple murder. She was kept in a Kree high-security prison when she was selected to join Peter Quill's 'dirty dozen' team to fight the Phalanx in Annihilation Conquest: Star-Lord. Unfortunately, her Shi'ar nature caused her to be hostile to Captain Universe {who only intended to help in the battle against the Phalanx} and attack him, in which resulted in her death in Star-Lord #2.

Real name finally revealed in Chaos War - Dead Avengers #3.

First Appearance: The Avengers (1963) #363
