Disney Vs Non Disney Villains
Carmella Moro was the only child of Salvatore "Medusa" Moro, a powerful crime-boss living in New York City, so named because his wrath would cause his enemies to freeze up in terror. From childhood, Carmella was used to getting everything she wanted from her doting father. Salvatore treated his daughter to expensive gifts including jewels, cars, clothes, and even two pet alligators, Brutus and Nero. Only one thing was denied Carmella: love.
Despite Carmella's wealth and power, which would make any other woman the object of desire for any suitor, she was considered a hideous woman. People used to joke (out of earshot) that Carmella had more than earned her father's nickname of "Medusa", though for entirely different reasons. That all changed when she met Silvio "Snoops" Amatuna. No looker himself, Silvio could respect the talents that most men overlooked in Carmella. There was only one problem: Silvio worked for Salvatore Medusa's most powerful enemy, "Big" Ben Badun.
Salvatore forbade his daughter from seeing Silvio, even launching a war against Badun to keep their organizations separate. But Carmella would not be deterred. One night, Carmella went to her father and begged him to let her and Silvio be together. He adamantly refused. In desperation, Carmella took up her father's shotgun and threatened to shoot herself. Salvatore told her to go right ahead. Carmella pulled the trigger, but was not aiming for herself.
When Salvatore's men burst into the room, they found Carmella weeping over her father's bloody corpse. She told them the gun went off accidentally, despite the fact that Salvatore had been shot six times.
With Salvatore dead, Carmella took control of the organization. Making peace with Badun's own successor Bill Sykes, she and Silvio were married. However, Carmella could not stand to remain in the city where her father died. Moving to New Orleans, took over the criminal underworld in the Deep South. Snoops remained by her side the whole time.

Carface barely manages to escape the bloodthirsty Brutus and Nero, Medusa's crocodiles.

Medusa takes the stage, attempting to kill Cat R. Waul in front of the entire audience. While she demoralizes a few henchmen with her pot-shots, Waul himself shoots her in the leg. Before Waul can take another shot, though, Medusa hunts him down and sends him scurrying onto a giant mouse-trap. Shooting the mechanism, Medusa sends Waul careening through the air, into a US mailing bag... right before it is taken by a train. Cruella and Medusa delight in their newfound criminal empire.

Only a Pawn in Their Game
Medusa is a low level mobster in the employ of Sykes in the beginning of the war. She busies herself with various criminal projects in Devil's Bayou, receiving funding from her boss. She soon learns of a gang war escalating in New York City, in which Sykes is killed. Medusa thus falls under the control of an ever rotating group of leaders, from Mace Malone to Tombstone to the Green Goblin.
The Green Goblin proves to be the least conducive of Medusa's employers to funding her projects. Eventually, he cuts the funding entirely, as the project is not making the mob any money. Furious, Medusa hires Chang to terminate the Green Goblin. She fails, but the Green Goblin kills Chang before she gets a chance to divulge the name of her employer. Medusa is content to wait out the gang war, taking pleasure when Negaduck eliminates the Green Goblin.

Immediately upon recieving news of the vacuum, Medusa went to Crime Central to claim the empire. She arrived just after Kingpin and challenged him for full control of New York's criminal underworld. After a wild battle with Medusa's shotgun, Medusa was able to take out the rear rotor of Kingpin's helicopter and send him plummeting into the Hudson River.

Teaming with Queen Grimhilde
As Cruella returned to her base in an old dog pound, where many of the captured animal heroes were being held, she and her ally the criminal Madam Medusa were approached by Queen Grimhilde, who offered them a place at her side should the war turn against them.
In Louisiana, Madam Medusa had captured the frog princess Tiana, another victim of Doctor Facilier, intending to take her to Maleficent to use to summon Chernabog. However, Tiana's lover, the true Prince Naveen, also a frog, witnessed the kidnapping and used his tongue to latch onto Medusa's boat, following her back to her lair in an old steamship. Medusa's pet alligators Brutus and Nero caught Naveen's scent, but he wasn't alone, having brought the alligator Louis and firefly Ray with him. Showing himself, Naveen frightened Medusa, who ordered her henchman Snoops to attack the frog with a broom, only for Naveen to dodge the clumsy attacks. In the chaos, Snoops destroyed the chair Medusa was standing on. Recovering, Medusa threw a frying pan at Naveen, who dodged, but left himself open for Snoops to crush him with a book. Louis moved in to help, but Medusa retrieved a shotgun and shot the alligator in the tail. Ray charged into Medusa, knocking her down, but as Naveen managed to release Tiana, Brutus and Nero charged in to devour them. The two frogs knocked the cage that had held Tiana down on the alligator's heads, giving them a path to the exit. Medusa had recovered and tried to shoot them, but her gun jammed. As the heroes leapt overboard, Medusa managed to get the gun working again, but nearly shot Snoops as it went off. As she watched the heroes escape into the bayou, Medusa was left to vent her rage on her henchmen.
Finding the pound where Cruella and her allies were hiding, the Disney Dogs and Cats found the group celebrating their recent successes. Breaking in, the dogs squared off against Cruella's forces, who quickly rallied to defend their prisoners. Edgar, Brutus, and Nero engaged the dogs as Madam Medusa fired potshots at them with her shotgun. As Pongo broke off from the melee and tried to attack Medusa, she knocked him into a wall with her cane, stunning him. Pluto tried to help, but was injured by a shot from Medusa. In the midst of the fight, Jasper threw a bottle at a window, breaking it. As Cruella and her forces began to get the upper hand, Dodger's owner Fagin crashed through the window on his motor-scooter, knocking the villains aside.
Though she may have lost the puppies, Cruella was determined to get them back, and she and her gang leapt into their respective vehicles to give chase to Fagin and company. Cruella and Medusa followed Fagin onto the train tracks, but Edgar made a wrong turn and came back to the surface, where Napoleon and Lafayette were waiting for him. However, the dogs soon found themselves heading for the railway, where they ran into Medusa, splitting the motorcycle and sidecar apart, while Medusa was knocked into a ditch on the side of the road.Cruella and her minions were not as fortunate, as the train knocked them off the bridge, though they survived.
Accepting Grimhilde's offer
Meanwhile, as Shan Yu and a few other Hun warriors who had survived the avalanche returned to Grimhilde, they found Cruella, Medusa, and Edgar seeking an audience with the Queen. With their own plans in shambles, they decided to cast their lot in with Grimhilde.

Reluctantly, the King agreed. Madame Medusa was forced to break the news to Bill Sykes, who was also none too happy about this arrangement.
Vs Hercules Forces

Vs Forces of Bambi

Jack followed up by punching Medusa in the face. Jasper came to Medusa's aid, attacking Jack with an iron bar, but the horse Buck stepped in and began fighting the thug.The tide turned as Clayton's poachers tried to tie up the Patch of Heaven cows and Buck, though Buck managed to break free of his bonds.
Unknown to either the animals or Clayton's group, Hades and the Sprite were nearby, with Hades forcing the Sprite to use her powers to awaken the Firebird at last. As some of the other animals began to sense something was wrong, Koda slipped in unnoticed and freed Kenai from the snare. While the other hunters kept the animal heroes cornered, Clayton moved in to deal the death blow to Bambi, but before he could do so, the Firebird appeared over the ridge. The poachers were forced to flee as the Firebird unleashed its inferno over the land, consuming everything in its path.
