    I love Thundra, the Femizon! Her and Valkyrie were Marvel's first 2 super-strong female characters and 2 of my favorites!

    An interesting note from the pics above: a few were redone to show characters that were not there in the original drawings! The one of "Thundra" punching "Ms Marvel" through the wall should be Ms Marvel punching a female Doctor Spectrum. The other one with Thundra smashing Sub-Mariner should be the Thing.

    One of my favourite ever characters, would love to see more of her

    The image of her belting the thing and knocking him back was astounding at that time

    Fantastic Four #148 Jul 1974
    "War on the Thirty-Sixth Floor!" Guest-starring Thundra.
    Returning to the Baxter Building following the revelation that Sue is willingly staying with Namor,
    the downtrodden Fantastic Four soon find that they are not alone in the Baxter Building.
    Reed is attacked first by the Sandman who is hiding out in Reed's lab.
    Freeing the rest of the FF who were trapped in an elevator, they begin searching
    out the rest of their headquarters for the other members of the Frightful Four.

    The Sandman reunites with the Wizard and Trapster and they begin their hunt for each of the members of the Fantastic Four.
    The Trapster finds the Human Torch first and manages to immobilize him with his super-paste.
    The Wizard tracks down both Reed and Medusa and is able to defeat them by placing anti-gravity discs on their backs.
    Finally, the Thing is attacked by the Sandman. However he avoids defeat when their fight is interrupted by Thundra,

    who has come to make good her previous warning to her former teammates in the Frightful Four about attacking the Fantastic Four ever again.

    Meanwhile, Johnny manages to break free of the Trapster's paste-trap and easily defeats his old foe.
    He then finds the Wizard and uses the Trapster's paste gun to immobilize him.
    Freeing Reed and Medusa, the FF reunite and contain the villains they have defeated.

    When Reed asks Thundra how she knew they were in trouble, the possible answer is interrupted when they all become
    aware that Namor has risen sea monsters from the sea and intends to renew his aggressions towards the surface world.

    Thundras a weird one.

    Great character design, very simple. Motivations a tad weak. Her backstory on the otherhand is very dated though and has a lot of political ugliness to it. Does she manage to reintegrate society in the future when she's empress or is it still a Man hating matriarchy ?

    Marvel Two in One #53 Jul 1979
    "The Pegasus Project Part 1: The Inner War!" Guest-starring Quasar. Thundra and Deathlok cameos.
    Feeling guilty that he has neglected his adopted "son" Wundarr, the Thing decides to pay a visit to Project Pegasus
    to see if the young man has recovered from his coma since being exposed to the energies of the Cosmic Cube.
    After passing the security screening he is granted access and given a priority access card.
    When he meets Quasar, the new chief of security, Ben mistakes him for the Crusader --
    an insane Uranian super-hero which the Fantastic Four previously battled and thought dead.
    After a brief scuffle, Quasar reveals that he is really Wendel Vaughn, whose father had
    recovered the Crusader's Quantum Bands following his death and gave them over to his son.
    With the misunderstanding cleared up, Quasar takes Ben to see Wundarr.
    Along the way, Ben runs into Thomas Lightner, who seems innocent enough but gives Ben the creeps.
    For good reason, however, because after the two heroes leave Lightner's presence, he calls in his mysterious employer
    and tells his master at an organization called Nth Command to initiate the next phase of a fiendish plot.

    Meanwhile, in Manhattan, Thundra is walking the streets

    when she runs into a musclebound man threatening wrestling promoter Herkimer J. Oglethorpe. Easily beating the ruffian,

    Oglethorpe decides to offer her a career in the wrestling league which he promotes for.

    Back at Project Pegasus, Quasar takes Thing to Wundarr's room and explains that since the man-child had been exposed
    to the Cosmic Cube he's been a living sponge, absorbing energies in his vicinity, even the Thing's own strength.
    Trying to rouse the boy doesn't work and so the two decide to retire for the night to check on the boys status in the morning.
    As they try to rest, Lightner knocks out some guards and allows Nth Command's operative: The cyborg Deathlok entry into the compound.

    Unable to sleep, the Thing decides to pace around the compound. Lost in thought he is unaware that
    he is walking right into the waiting aim of Deathlok who is programmed to kill anyone who gets in his way.
