(Leeann Foreman)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Whiplash (Leeann Foreman) is a very minor Marvel Comics villainess, with a nice costume and an efficient signature weapon.

She is primarily known as a member of the Femmes Fatales mercenary team. So you should read this profile after you’ve read our character profile for Knockout (Elizabeth Rawson), which explains the known context and history of this group.

She has no relation to the “main” Marvel Comics Whiplash (Mark Scarlotti).


Background

  • Real Name: Leeann Foreman
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: Former member of Critical Mass’ Band of Baddies ; Femmes Fatales ; member of Superia’s Femizons
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Height: 5’10” Weight: 142 lbs
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Blonde


Powers and Abilities

Whiplash reportedly is a mutant, but has never demonstrated superhuman abilities. However, there’s a faint possibility that she is regenerative.

Foreman is generally athletic, and a solid melee combatant.

Whiplash (Lee Ann Foreman) vs. Spider-Man

Whiplash is clad is light body armor and uses a special weapon. It consists in two gauntlets, each containing three spring-loaded retractable osmium steel cables. These can extend up to 25 feet, and contains needle-sharp Adamantium  barbs on the tips.

Whiplash lurves her whips, and will frequently spend some Hero Points  to increase the accuracy of her early attacks during a fight.


History

Leeann Foreman was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She worked for the obscure supervillain Critical Mass, but is best known for her membership in the Femmes Fatales.


Description

Her first costume, worn as a member of Critical Mass’s team, was the blue one. Either the costume included a red wig, or she later dyed her hair blonde, or they were dyed red back then.

The Femmes Fatales vs. Spider-Man

During her first fight she was badly slashed in the face by Wolverine. It is possible that she now has scars, though none were apparent when she was seen in her civvies.


Personality

Aggressive mercenary. She’s mostly a bully, though. If faced with serious problems she will fold pretty quickly.

Along with Bloodlust, Whiplash is the close combat specialist. They will melee and stick to their designated target as long as needed.


Quotes

“You’re dead, Spider-Man ! You shouldn’t have come here !”

“Bloodlust only has claws, wall-crawler. I’ve got lashes !”
