Lynessa with Thora

Lynessa with Thora

Lynessa is the name of the Wicked With of the West in Grimm Fairy Tales Presents: Oz and Tales from Oz, a comic book series version (almost completely retold) of the classic book series. She is one of the evil witch queens of Oz, a sister of Zinna (the Wicked Witch of the East) and a daughter of the Arch-Witch Zamora. She has an apprentice named Thora who is her jealously kept love interest.

As in the original book, she is killed by Dorothy Gale (here not quite a child). In the comic, she swears vengeance on Dorthy for killing Zinna, and even obtains the powerful the Veridian Scepter, which had been used to vanquish her mother many years ago and then her sister too. However Dorothy, aided by Glinda (the Good Witch of the North), the Scarecrow, and her other friends, eventually reclaims the scepter and destroys her as well.

In Tales from Oz prequel stories, Lynessa creates the Scarecrow and the Tin Man by cursing two men out of cruelty. She also massacres the tribe of the Lion.
