The only daughter of the Golden Age Wonder Woman and retired Air Force General Steve Trevor, Hippolyta "Lyta" Trevor was raised amidst a unique mixture of typical American and ancient Amazon cultures. Her summers were spent on Paradise Island with her semi retired mother, learning the skills of an Amazon though her thoughts did not turn to crime fighting until she met the modern day Wonder Woman during her final year in high school.
After her freshman year at Georgetown University, Lyta insisted she was ready to take her mother's place as a super hero, but Diana was adamant that Lyta had to finish her education first. The fiery tempered young woman was offered a choice between transferring to the university of Southern California or spend the next several years in intensive training on Paradise Island. Lyta opted for USC, where she was reunited with her childhood friend Hector Hall. A romantic relationship developed between them and they were engaged at one stage.
Still determined to become the next generation of heroes, Lyta and Hector adopted the secret identities of Fury and Silver Scarab respectively and, along with several other offspring of the JSA, they formed Infinity Inc and set out to "prove" themselves to their parents.
Lyta Hall's first appearance is in Wonder Woman Wonder Woman #300 - Beautiful Dreamer, Death Unto Thee! She would make an appearance in the same month with All-Star Squadron #25 - The Infinity Syndrome! and All-Star Squadron Annual #2 - The Ultra War!.
After Crisis of Infinite Earths
After Crisis of Infinite Earths, the Golden age Wonder Woman was no longer canon and, as such, Lyta had to be given a new backstory. Her history was revised and she was made into the daughter of Helena Kosmatos who was the World War 2 heroine Fury. Lyta's father has not been revealed. Lyta was raised by Joan Trevor, the Golden Age hero Miss America, and was occasionally visited by Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons for whom Lyta was named. Lyta was trained by Hippolyta in the arts of war and eventually went on to join Infinity Inc with some other second generation heroes including Obsidian, Jade and the man who would eventually become her husband Hector Hall, this part of her history is virtually identical to her history in Earth-Two.
Life as Mrs Hector Hall
Lyta eventually was engaged to Hector Hall, her childhood sweetheart. Unfortunately their happiness didn't last as Hector was possessed by one of his fathers enemies and killed. It was also around this time that Lyta realised she was pregnant. After her loss, Lyta left Infinity Inc to have her child. In her dreams, Lyta was repeatedly visited by Hector. In death, Hector had been tricked by the dreams Glob and Brute into believing he was the new Sandman when the the real Sandman, Dream, was imprisoned. Lyta eventually joined Hector in a pocket of the Dreaming known as the Dream Dimension, while there Lyta and Hector married. Due to the nature of the Dreaming, however, their unborn child ceased to grow.
The real dream king "Morpheus" was eventually freed and punished the errant dreams Brute and Glob and dispatched Hector's soul and returned Lyta to the waking world heavily pregnant. Morpheus told Lyta that her child was his as the baby was incubated in the dreaming. He told her he would return for the infant one day and take him. Lyta claimed she would never allow this to happen.
Life as a single mother
Lyta was a devoted mother to a baby boy named Daniel. Lyta was terrified to leave Daniel's side after what Morpheus said to her. In the course of three years, she had only left him one night for a job interview. When she returned, Daniel was gone and Lyta mistakenly believed Morpheus had taken him, it was in fact the Norse god Loki. This extra pain was more than Lyta could bear and she suffered a nervous breakdown. The Furies offered the distraught Lyta vengeance against Morpheus if she agreed to be their instrument of destruction. Lyta agreed and began to destroy the dreaming. Despite her intentions of trying to save her child, in the end her actions led to his "death". The Furies attack on the Dreaming is so severe that Morpheus is left with only one option to stop their onslaught, his own destruction. The death of Morpheus creates a new Dream and that new Dream is Daniel, Lyta's son.
Lyta is one of the many millions of souls called to the funeral of Morpheus. While there she reunites with her son Daniel, the new Dream King. Despite claiming to retain none of his humanity, he puts Lyta under his protection.
Despite being under Daniel's protection, Lyta was still full of despair. She was drinking heavily and was prone to violent outbursts and was frequently sleeping with random men is a unsuccessful attempt to block out her pain. One such occasion her "outburst" was so severe she nearly killed one of her one night stands. His screams were so loud that the police were called and Lyta was arrested.
While she was being interviewed, the detective suggested Lyta get some professional help and randomly came across a leaflet for a Hellenic Theatre group enroute to Greece. Lyta decides to join them and travel to Athens. Lyta is unaware, however, that she is being hunted by the titan Cronus who intends to kill her and take on the role of the spirit of vengeance as he believes her to be the key to the avatar of the Furies. With the help of Hermes, Lyta manages to defeat Cronus. Hermes takes Lyta to the Dreaming believing that her connection to Daniel would save them both from Cronus. Hermes was however mistaken, it was Lyta who defeated Cronus by harnessing the power of the Furies and kills him. This latest encounter with Daniel somehow gave Lyta closure on the loss of Daniel and Hector and she finds the strength to go on with her life.
Getting her family back
Sometime after her encounter with Cronus, Lyta was captured by Mordru and imprisoned within Doctor Fate's amulet. Lyta was later freed by the Justice Society including her reincarnated husband Hector Hall. Unfortunately for the unlucky couple, they would both soon suffer yet again. During the Spectre's rampage on the worlds magic users Hector and Lyta were both banished to a freezing mountain. The mountain was later revealed to a part of Hell. With Hector yet again near death, Lyta was visited by Daniel who offered to take her and Hector to the Dreaming for all eternity however they would never be able to return to Earth. Lyta accepted Daniel's offer. Its unknown if Daniel did this as an act of love for his mother and father or if he was just keeping his word when he claimed he would protect Lyta. Lyta and Hector's bodies were later seen in the snow, both dead.
On Earth-2, Fury makes her debut fighting alongside Steppenwolf as they conquer the kingdom of Dherain.
