Shanna O'Callahan was a Banshee that disguised herself as a rock musician. Her single Love Makes Me Live, from her debut album would have caused great destruction if the Ghostbusters had not stopped her from singing at a live national telecast.

HistoryEdit

Shanna O'Callahan spent years as an agent of doom for many victims. However, she tired of wasting herself on one person at a time and came up with a plan to affect many at once. O'Callahan became a recording artist. Shanna O'Callahan had just become a pop hit when the Ghostbusters observed that strange things happened whenever she sang or her music was played. Peter Venkman played an advance copy of her album under the Insanity Records label. Upon playing the song Love Makes Me Live, Peter levitated, two beds exploded, and the ceiling light disintegrated. They saw that they had good reason to be concerned when her voice induced P.K.E. readings.

To complicate matters, O'Callahan was scheduled to perform at Carnegie Hall at 8 pm that day and it would be broadcasted across the world. Vince Braggs, her agent, was less than cooperative and refused to default on a multimillion dollar deal. The team then tracked O'Callahan to a musical rehearsal hall but Peter was entranced and fell in love with her. After seeing her true image in a mirror, Peter came to his senses and the Ghostbusters confronted her. Egon Spengler reflected her voice at her with feedback. This caused O'Callahan to revert to her true form and the team trapped her. [2]

DescriptionEdit

Egon Spengler and Ray Stantz describe a Banshee as an Irish spirit whose bizarre supernatural singing always causes disasters and, until this one, causes trouble with individuals. [3] [4] When speaking with Braggs, it is also said to be a "negative spirit" and "aspiring agent of doom." [5] [6]

PowersEdit

Shanna O'Callahan has the power to change her form, cause destruction with her voice, fly, and can place a man into a trance state. [7]
