History

Shanna is the result of a Nazi genetic breeding experiment where she was designed to be a super-soldier. Doc, a member of a scientific expedition, was the first to encounter her, and named her Shanna after the comic book character.[2] She joined an encampment of soldiers who had become stuck on Monster Isle and helped them to survive.[3]

When a group of pirates sought refuge on the island after being attacked by a Leviathan, she also helped them to survive and escape their pursuers and stay alive long enough to get off the island. Shanna herself decided to stay as she liked it there.[4]
