    Background

    • Marital Status: Unrevealed
    • Known Relatives: None
    • Group Affiliation: Prime Movers ; her own gang
    • Base Of Operations: Steel Harbor
    • Height: 5’6” Weight: 127 lbs.
    • Eyes: Blue Hair: Dark blonde


    Powers and Abilities

    Blackbelt, as her street handle implies, is a superb martial artist in one or more undisclosed forms. She can deliver blows (chiefly punches and kicks) with superhuman might, and her martial proficiency is thus thought to be a superhuman power. Note that only her strikes are enhanced – she doesn’t seem to have superhuman strength proper, for instance to lift heavy objects.

    Blackbelt vs. Hunter

    With the Unfettered Fist Schtick, her Martial Artist-enhanced blows can be as devastating as any EV 09 weapon, such as 66mm anti-tank rocket or paired .50 heavy machineguns. As can be surmised, she’s amply capable of shattering stone and metal with her unarmed strikes, and she’s well-known for delivering flying kicks that will carry her through a brick wall – or even some concrete ones. However, it’s not sufficient for her to clobber people with massively superhuman strength, such as Mace Blitzkrieg.

    Secondary sources indicate enhanced agility and reflexes, reflected in this entry as Acrobatics, DEX, and Lightning Reflexes.


History

She was apparently a professional martial artist before she developed her powers.


Description

Blackbelt walks around barefoot – presumably she has heavily callused striking surfaces.


Personality

Blackbelt seems to be the smartest and most analytical member of the Prime Movers. She values intelligence and subtlety, and can figure things out when they’re less than obvious. She generally comes across as a competent fighter and operator.

Blackbelt frequently nags at Airborne, obviously thinking that he’s dumb as a brick.

Quotes

(Sarcastically commenting about Airborne’s mediocre people skills) “Subtle.”

(Kicking through a wall) “YEEEEEEEEEE !”

“You’re overreacting, Airborne. As usual.”
