Deathcry possesses no superhuman powers aside from those granted to
her by her alien physiology. She possesses superhuman reflexes,
hyper-sensitive senses, and claws which she can use as weapons.
Deathcry is the name given to a young warrior, born to the alien
Shi'ar empire, as her 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 feared for the team's safety should the Kree
attempt revenge. She then ordered Deathcry, by order of the same
decree which took her name, to join the Avengers as their protector,
effectively exiling the warrior. The team accepted Deathcry as an
honorary member, as she was helpful in aiding a Kree reprisal.
Deathcry served with the Avengers for several months, hiding her
youth by overcompensating with a bloodthirsty attitude. She soon
softened and revealed her true age as she formed close friendships
with her teammates Vision and Hercules. She even began to feel
unrequited romantic feelings for Hercules.
Later, however, after the Avengers survived a decimating attack by
the villain Immortus posing as Kang, Deathcry decided her services
were no longer required. She bade Hercules to return her to the
Shi'ar empire, where she remains.
