Snow Queen (Marvel Comics) (Wolverine Comics)

Snow Queen


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

The Snow Queen only appeared in one 1990 Wolverine story. It thus seems likely that she’s obscure, but then again a lot of people were buying Wolverine in 1990.

As it happened I was running a one-player-one-GM campaign spin-off during that Summer. And she was just right as a baddie in the story, so I still have oooold notes about her.

  • Real Name: Gitte (last name unrevealed).
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed, presumed single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: None.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 6’ Weight: 134lbs.
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Blonde

Powers and Abilities

The Snow Queen is abnormally strong, tough and fast. And these powers are backed by superb close quarter combat skills. She also is an expert knife fighter.

At close range, the Snow Queen can drow all the senses of her adversary. This resembles a snowstorm or the static of a TV screen turned to a dead channel. The surprised opponent is then a easy prey.

With such powers and skills, the Queen could easily beat even Wolverine (James Howlett).


History

The Snow Queen has had an haphazard life. A Dutch kid, she was a beggar for a few years (presumably before she got her powers at puberty). It also seems that she did wetwork for the Canadian government at one point. Her weapons of choice back then were already the biggest available semi-auto and the knife.

She then was involved in drug trafficking in Southeast Asia. These, and her powers, are presumably the source of her nickname. in 1990, she clashed with Wolverine, and was presumed dead in the explosion of a trapped briefcase. Her odds of survival are, however, high.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Ruthless, competent and professional drug runner. The Snow Queen is also amoral and easily chooses violence as a course of action.

Despite her abilities, she prefers to fight armed in order to get every single possible advantage over her foes.
