Founding member of The Associated Legion of Justice Defenders.
Area 51 was created to research artifacts recovered from the wreckage of alien spacecraft. A small swatch of fabric was dismissed by senior researchers as irrelevant and sent to Area 73 for cataloging and storage. The scrap of purple fabric proved to be a nanotech weapons and defense system, keying automatically to the organism that activates it. In this case, that organism was Hawking University graduate student, Laura Flynn. When activated, the swatch immediately set to work replicating itself, and within seconds had fit itself to her like a second skin– a bulletproof skin capable of firing concentrated bursts of energy. Composed of billions of molecular machines, the suit can quickly adapt itself, building new functions and repairing itself as conditions demand.
