Lady Shadra was an evolved black panther created by the High Evolutionary as one of his New Men, animals given humanoid form and intelligence. She was a member of her master's high guard, the Knights of Wundagore, and had her own squire named Gulo. Together they took part in the earliest battle against the Man-Beast after he ousted the Evolutionary from his own citadel, and later joined their creator on his journey into space.[1]

Her exploits became the favorite stories of the New Men tale-weaver Prosimia, and her armor would be taken up by Kitty Pryde in her own battle against the Man-Beast sometime later.[2]


Shadra's feline physiology likely gave her some degree of enhanced strength and agility, as well as sharp claws and teeth.



Like Squire Gulo, she appears in flashback to events that would have taken place in Thor #134 and #135, but is not actually present in the original issues. However, it is likely that she is one of the many unnamed Knights that fought against the Man-Beast in his first appearance.
