connections to the original.

Original Shanna

Shanna was a daughter of a diamond miner named Gerald O'Hara. She was born in Africa and spent most of childhood growing up in the jungle. One day her father had to go hunt rouge leopards that belonged to her mother, Patricia. While he was hunting the leopards, he accidentally shot Patricia. This caused Shanna to hate guns and never uses them. Shanna eventually moved back to the U.S. and became a licensed veterinarian.

Shanna back in the day. When she completed college, she began working at a Zoo in New York City as a zoologist. Shanna raised many animals during her time as a Zoologist, she became like a mother to a leopard named Julani. Julani would soon later be shot and killed by a zoo guard, which resulted in Shanna quitting and taking Julani's cubs to Africa.

While in Africa Shanna started to protect the animal reserve from poachers and went by the name Shanna the She-Devil. Her father would soon be kidnapped by Mandrill. She would search for him until she was captured herself and brought to the Savage Land by Malgato. Ka-Zar would come to help Shanna against Malgato. When Shanna returned to Africa to look for her father, she found out that her father was killed by Mandrill. She returned to America and teamed with Daredevil and Black Widow to stop Mandrill and Nekra from overthrowing the American government.

When Shanna returned to Africa, she discovered that her Leopard cubs had been killed by a religious cult leader named Raga-Shah. Shanna would tracked down Raga-Shah and kill him.

Shanna eventually moved to the Savage Lands where she fell in love with Ka-Zar. They would get married and have a son named Matthew. Shanna and Ka-Zar would fight to protect that prehistoric wildlife reserve known as the Savage Lands.

Correction on the Raga-Shah story. In Africa, Shanna had a brush with assassins sent by Raga-Shah, a cult leader, to kill a SHIELD agent. She promised the dying agent that she would carry a message to his sister in India. There Shanna was able to destroy the cult's temple, but her cats were killed, and Raga-Shah escaped.
Two years later, Shanna located Raga-Shah near San Pedro, where she had sought rest. Raga-Shah tried to sacrifice her; she freed herself, and fed him to her pet python.
