Powers and Abilities

Reflex is a metahuman with two primary abilities.

First of all, she radiates an energy field at will. It can deflect and redirect any form of ranged attack about to strikes her, save for the most powerful.

In addition, she has a subconscious manipulation of probability, that tends to warp odds in her favor. This probability manipulation is never blatant, but occurs often enough to be noticed by those close to her.


History

Wendy Greyman was an aspiring stuntwoman. But she found herself caught up in a battle between certain metahuman forces, namely the League of the Tomb and the New Legion.

She was hit simultaneously by Silverlance’s purifying beam, and an odd mystic blast from Abyss. The resultant energies activated her own latent metahumanity, but not until after a long hospital stay.

Upon being released from the hospital, the first thing she discovered was her reflection field. A mishap with a pistol loaded with blanks resulted in some dirt in the barrel being shot at her at high speeds. She instinctively activated her field, deflecting the clod of dirt into a nearby light.

She still acts as a stuntwoman, but will take to the streets as Reflex if anything needing her attention occurs wherever her current shoot is.


Description

An athletic woman, with short black hair, she wears whatever is handy as her “costume”.


Personality

Wendy is incredibly brave, and appears to have absolutely no fear. In fact, she has a craving for danger, and is constantly pushing her luck, so to speak.

She has no dual identity, and uses the name “Reflex” as a nickname among her friends, as well as an adventuring moniker.


DC Universe History

Reflex may know Blue Devil, as both were stuntpeople at perhaps the same time. Alternately, she may have even been chosen as a possible Green Lantern, but rejected for her recklessness.
