* The villain {{Thanos}} briefly created Terraxia the Terrible during his run in ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet, in an attempt to replace Death as his consort. Terraxia was an AmazonianBeauty female version of himself (she has the same purple skin, black empty eyes and wrinkled chin, as well as dresses in similar gold and blue). She apparently had all of his (non-Infinity Gauntlet) powers as well, including Thanos' strength, in that she was easily able to [[spoiler:slay Iron Man and Spider-Man.]]
