Powers and Abilities

The Siren will always try to control any man she might be fighting. Female opponents, who are immune to Siren’s charms, get pummelled about the head and shoulders at superspeed.

Siren may even utilize a controlled male to do her dirty work. To maintain this control she must continue to sing.


History

Electra Coersa and her friends decided to go for a joy ride on her father’s yacht. As the craft traveled deeper into the sea, the instruments began to go haywire. A thick fog arose from the water and all that could be seen was a thin line of a distant island. But existed on no maps ! It was then that they heard it.

At first there was a faint voice that grew in intensity until everyone doubled over in pain. Electra’s boyfriend, at the helm, steered the boat toward the mysterious island. He seemed to be in a trance-like state.

Just before the ship smashed on the rocky shore, Electra jumped for her life. Swimming to the beach, Electra discovered uncountable numbers of ships which had encountered a similar fate. It was then that Electra realized she was not alone-surrounding her stood a score of beautiful women.

Electra had no choice in the matter. She was trained by these woman to become one of them—a Siren!
