Lyra is a female comic superhero that features in Marvel Comics.
Though prepared to mate with Osborn, she ultimately rejected this notion as she could not have a child with such a figure despite the order from the Gynosure. Thus, Lyra came to reject not only her mission but continuing to serve the Sisterhood. At the time, Boudicca had pledged her service to Lyra despite the warrior rejecting Milago's mission with the pair having to battle the Dark Avengers. Despite putting up a fight, she was overwhelmed by her foes who nearly captured her until She-Hulk arrived. She-Hulk was working with A.R.M.O.R. and used a communication signal to allow herself along with Lyra to be teleported away. Boudicca informed Lyra that access to H.A.M.M.E.R.s computers allowed her to find the location of a factory that still existed in the far future that contained the means to produce the macroprocessors needed by the Sisterhood to repair their cradle technology. The artificial intelligence beamed this information to Gynosure in the future who sent arms-maids to recover the processor thus saving Milago who bade Lyra to find her own path. Initially, Director Little Sky intended to deport her back to her home reality of Earth-8009 when he received a message from Director Osborn threatening action against A.R.M.O.R. It was then Lyra revealed that Boudicca contained a copy of Norman Osborn's secrets with Director Little Sky deciding to make a deal with the warrior whereby in exchange for the information she could remain on Earth-616 as an agent of A.R.M.O.R. whereby she responded to inter-dimensional incursions.

She was later offered a place on the Frightful Four though the Wizard had doubts about her replacing her mother Thundra on the team. This was during the time he was operating as a member of the Intelligencia that were operating in secret to conquer the world. Lyra's first mission with the Frightful Four was their attack on the Baxter Building where she was dispatched to fight the Human Torch Johnny Storm and succeeded in her assignment. (Hulk v2 #19)
Personality and attributes
Despite that, she did show regret at having to disconnect the cradle used by the tribes of men as it would lead to their extinction. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #2)
Powers and abilities
Similar to her father, she could slam her palms together creating a powerful burst of force that could cause people to fall back or snuff out fire. (Hulk v2 #19)
She could enter into an autotrance where she could see the Gamma Rays radiated everywhere whereby in a calm and centred state she could anticipate the movements of her opponent by sensing the radiation inherent in their bodies. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #3) Gynosure taught Lyra on how to enter into the autotrance by using a manta that was the lambda-CDM concordance model of the Big Bang. The Gamma Rays that were created from the Big Bang resided in the entire universe and by sensing it she could anticipate her foes movements. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #4) Unlike the other women in Milago, she was born naturally and could bear offspring whereas the other females of the Sisterhood were sterile. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #3)
Unlike her father, anger was not the source of her strength and in fact it weakened her. Thus, the angrier she got the weaker she got leaving her unable to fight stronger foes. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #2) G-Engineers had created a deliberate weakness within her body that was to serve as a fail-safe in case she ever turned against them. This allowed them to nullify her through an overdose of Gamma Rays which triggered a weakness in her cells regardless of her emotional state. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #3)
She was provided a wrist mounted machine called Boudicca that gave her information and advised her. Originally, the device was a child's toy that was back-engineered to become a remote extension of Gynosure which in turn served as the cybernetic repository of the collective knowledge of Milago. The artificial intelligence within had a strong feminine personality that believed the female gender was superior to all and she served the wearer whilst assisted in the completion of any mission. Boudicca had a taunt mode where it would speak out words to antagonise enemies though this could be turned off. On command, the artificial intelligence could divert all processing speed to tactical information where she provided commentary on threats nearby along with the weapons used by enemies. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #1) It could generate tendrils to connect to other machines allowing Boudicca to interface with them and override their systems. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #3) She displayed her avatar as that of a unicorn kind of creature. Though linked to Gynosure via tachyon stream to the future, Boudicca was dedicated to serving Lyra until her protocol was permanently erased. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #4)
In the future, the Sisterhood had domesticated the Venom Symbiote by treating themselves with pheromones that were an anathema to it. (Savage She-Hulk v2 #4)
