Fantomah's history is shrouded in mystery, but it is known that she was once an Egyptian princess and that she came to regard herself as the guardian of all jungle life, and the mysterious secrets that were hidden in its darkest recesses.


Equipment and Abilities:  
Fantomah possessed powerful psi abilities which may have been mystical in origin. She possessed telekenesis which allowed her to fly through the air at high speed, and move people and objects around her. She was telepathically linked with all the creatures living in the jungle, particularly mammals. This allowed her to sense the distress of any creature in the jungle and warn her of trouble. She was also able to communicate with animals and enlist their aid in battle. Fantomah also seems to have had the power of suggestions over the minds of human beings. She used this to disguise herself as a ghostly skull-faced banshee-like creature, instilling great fear in her enemies. She also used this ability to punish her enemies, by causing them to experience nighmarish visions that usually left them catatonic.


In addition to her great powers, Fantoma was experienced at living off the land in the jungle. In later stories, she did appear to have mystical abilities that allowed her to do nearly anything, but she rarely used these abilities.


Fury was a panther that Fantoma once saved. He became her loyal protector and was extremely aggressive in attacking and killing anything that threatened Fantomah.
