Powers and Abilities

Lethal is not supposed to have superpowers ; however, at one point in the Lethal series, she uses what is obviously a datajack in her ear, so she may have unrevealed cybers. What is certain, however, is that she’s a superb martial artist and has mastered a vast array of weapons.


Lethal’s past is an almost complete unknown. Though she has worked with Boone and Kayo before the founding of Brigade, they know little about her except she’s a brilliant and resourceful fighter. Lethal fought alongside her comrades in various operations before their botched attempt to infiltrate the Youngblood compound.

When Roxxon disbanded the group for a time following the failed break-in, Lethal disappeared until rescuing Seahawk from being arrested by the Thing.

Returning to her former career as a professional assassin, Lethal then traveled to Japan on business ; her target was her former teammate Kayo. She mostly works for Roxxon, and mostly in Brigade, however.


See illustration.


Lethal is brutally independent and disciplined. She’s obviously completely autonomous on an emotional level ; her only link with Brigade was respect for John Stone, and a vague friendship with Rebecca Haller. She has absolutely no compulsion against killing, and has only disdain for non-combatants.
