The Furies raided an Nth Metal refinery on the planet Thanagar, slaughtering every Thanagarian within. They secured the Nth metal and Big Barda intentionally left on a ship rather than following protocol and boom tubing away. She wanted to leave an ion trail behind to lure their pursuers into a trap.
As five Justice League members approached the Orphanage, the Furies opened fire on their ship. The heroes returned fire with Nth Metal missiles as a way to hide their incursion into the Orphanage. Granny Goodness saw through this ploy, and commanded Barda to ready her Furies, Gilotina and Lashina. They engaged in combat with the Leaguers. During the brawl, Granny decided to test out the device she had been building, including her own Furies. The heroes overcame the device and rescued the Furies, much to their confusion.
