Powers and Abilities

Coachwhip is a good athlete and hand-to-hand combatant.

Her main weapon is a sharp, segmented steel whip on each of her wrists. She can use both at once with great coordination to club, slash, grab, disarm, etc..

Those whips have recently have been updated with an electrical generator. In DC Heroes RPG terms she will usually Grapple the target with her whips. If successful use Lightning as her next Dice Action.


Even in the generally second- or third-string Serpent Society, Coachwhip is a B-lister. For more about the Society, see our Sidewinder character profile.

She was part of the agents working for Viper during the takeover of the Serpent Society and the coup against Sidewinder. Yet she is now a Serpent Society member and general mercenary.

She *might* have a background as a paralegal or law student, as she was the prosecutor when Diamondback was judged by the Serpent Society.


Coachwhip basically wears any one-piece yellow swimming suit that strikes her fancy at the store, and a pair of combination yellow stockings and soft boots. Her long white hair is actually a wig.


She probably has one. It’s hard to tell. Somewhat easy going and looking to kick butt and make a score.

She was quite articulate and legal-sounding when she prosecuted Diamondback, though.

She has or had a relationship with King Cobra.


“Coachwhip is my name – flaying flesh is my game !”

“They call me Coachwhip – guess you can see why, uh ? I can deliver 20,000 volts with these mothers.”
