Powers and Abilities

Miss America has fairly traditional ’Superman’ style abilities. Strength, speed, flight, its all there. She feels that she embodies the spirit of America, her proudest moment was her hand in the women’s suffrage movement. However, she doesn’t consider herself a feminist.

Miriam has had it pretty rough actually, she constantly feels that America is not what it should be or could be, she has long periods of depression where she feels that the world is better off without her. She has avoided politics for the last several decades, because she sees much of what is wrong with this country has its home in those running the country. She gets physically sick if she spends too much time in Washington DC.


History

Born July 4, 1776, Miriam McKenzie was the first child born that day. She is one of the mythical embodiments of America. She has had a hand in every war America has been in since she was 13. Her superhuman powers have grown in the centuries she’s been alive. Most people don’t think that she is the same Miss America who fought in WWI, WWII, Korea, Việt Nam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, or Serbia.

WWI was the first time she donned a colorful costume and battled publicly. Although still young and beautiful, Miriam seems older now for the first time in centuries. She fought for America against the supernatural threats, then she spoke out against the isolationist and fascist preaching of Dr Anton Skoric, but Skoric seemed to have the ears of every one in the capital. His pupils currently led by Dr Righteous (actually Skoric himself who has achieved immortality) have ruined the country in her eyes and heart.

She became an alcoholic (something which had never affected her before), and wandered the country and the world for over eighty years. She returned to America and was approached by Renegade, who had found information about her and used some of the Lords equipment and contacts to find her. She agreed to join the team in it struggle to return America to the Land of the Free.


Description

A classic blonde bombshell in a patriotic costume, Miss America would easily fit in the Fem Force Universe. As Miriam McKenzie, she dressed rather conservatively. And uses the magic of glasses to complete her disguise.


Personality

She is quite upset at his father, he knows the dirty secrets about Dr. Righteous, and works tirelessly with the other Lords of the Ring to bring an end to his father’s manipulations of the American people. He is a noble and likeable man with a good sense of humor and more than just a little confidence.


Quotes

“I have never surrendered.”


DC Universe History

She could be dropped in anywhere really.
