History

Tyranny Rex is the star of her own strip in 2000 AD. She is the last of the Saurons, a race of reptilian humanoids apparently wiped out by a series of massacres. Tyranny was originally a genethief, stealing DNA from celebrities in order to make clones of them for rich collectors. Later, she became an artist, a freelance adventurer, and eventually (at least for seven years) a nun. She clashed on occasion with Fervent and Lobe, two operatives of the covert organisation Indigo Prime.

Notes

Tyranny appeared intermittently in 2000 AD between 1988 and 1994, before making a brief return in 2004. The Tyranny Rex stories were often criticised for being too convoluted and confusing, and when the story 'Soft Bodies' (drawn by Will Simpson) concluded, a reader wrote in to the comics letters page asking, "What was Tyranny Rex all about?" Alien editor Tharg replied, "It was about 28 pages."

Trivia

  • Tyranny did not originally have green skin, and the reason for the change does not appear to have been explained. (Maybe she hit puberty.)
  • Tyrannny's eyes are Zeiss-ranger implants (see prog 566).
