Powers and Abilities

Microwave has standard pyrokinetic abilities – strong enough to hurt Titan.

Her powers are also unstable and will harm her if she pushes them. A fact she wasn’t aware of until too late.


History

Microwave is a member of an apocalyptic mutant cult called the Inhibitors led by a gifted biologist, professor Kirby. She was made by Kirby (either as an artificially grown human, or a modified test subject). Microwave was preparing with him their onslaught on the inferior, non-chosen world.

The cult was spotted by the Feds, and taken down with an assault by a large SWAT force led by Titan. Microwave pushed her powers to hurt Titan and apparently imploded. It is quite probable she’s dead.


Personality

Religious fanatic with a superiority complex.


Description

See illustration.

A very minor bunch, add them as needed.
