Erinyes (Furies) Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

Have you ever been so mad that you'd say you were furious? You might have more in common with the Furies than you think.

Mr. Samuel L. Jackson plays the Marvel comic book hero Nick Fury in the Avengers movie. Sound familiar? That's right: Justice. Will. Be. Served.

In the God of War: Ghost of Sparta video game, there's a vengeful villainess named Erinyes, who flaps around on bat wings or in the form of giant armored bird. We'll give you three guesses as to who inspired this character.

The Female Furies are a team of super villainesses in the world of DC Comics. Just like the original Furies, they are not to be messed with.

There are some seriously hardcore female demons called Furies (complete with razor sharp claws) in the Shannara series of fantasy novels.
