Afterburner (Silver Sable enemy) (Marvel Comics)


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


Afterburner appeared but once, in 1994, in a C-list book. I mean, I liked Silver Sable and the Wild Pack, but it wasn’t a major player.

There’s little info about her, so a lot of this writeup is speculative. She’s perfect if you need a no-name, low-level supervillain to fill a group out, though.


  • Real Name: Unrevealed.
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Justin Hammer’s flunkies.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 5’6” Weight: 120 lbs.
  • Eyes: Unrevealed Hair: Green


Powers and Abilities

Afterburner is a speedster .


Afterburner was part of a hastily-assembled team of Hammer super-flunkies. These were tasked to bring down Silver Sable while she was attempting to control gigantic gang riots in Beverly Hills.

They were defeated and had to retreat.


See illustration.


Afterburner seems to be a flippant motormouth. She’s forever making small talk, inane remarks and flippant comments while in combat.

She kept taunting the silent Cyclone III. Afterburner also made numerous comments indicating she was looking for a well-built guy for some sex.

She doesn’t seem to be a very serious person.


“Out in a flash ! About time somebody hurt this boy. He’s got some endurance. Of course, that could be a good thing…”
