OK, a bit more detail about my character... ATOMIC GIRL!Real Name:
Elizabeth "Betty" BaumBorn:
August 16, 1942Height:
Betty Baum was born the daughter of an American physicist who had unknowingly been frequently exposed to radiation during his work as a founding member of the Uranium Committee, which later became the Manhattan Project. In spite of her father's top secret work, Betty had an ideal childhood in Athens, Ohio. Then in 1956 she began having fainting spells. When Betty was given a head x-ray to look for trauma, the radiation activated a latent mutation in her genetic code and she found herself blessed with a variety of "atomic powers." Putting on a caped costume, she fought against crooks and communists as Atomic Girl.
For three years Atomic Girl was the Midwest's top science hero. Then in 1959 she battled Doktor Klockmeister, an evil ex-Nazi scientist determined to go into the past to change the course of World War II. Atomic Girl was able to destroy his time machine but was seemingly vaporized in the explosion. The truth was that Atomic Girl was flung over sixty years into the future. Now she tries to adapt to the strange new world while still fighting the good fight.Personality:
Atomic Girl is about the most wholesome heroine in history. She sees the world in black and white. Atomic Girl is a proud American and is always on the lookout for "commies." Betty prefers 50's pop culture to that of the modern world and was quite said when she learned what happened to Elvis. She never curses and the furthest she has gone with a boy is a chaste kiss. Atomic Girl is a genuinely good person who wants to make the world a better place. Powers:
Atomic Girl's powers come from her ability to control the atoms in her body. She has displayed the following abilities thus far...Atomic Flight!
By moving all the atoms in her body in one direction, Atomic Girl can fly through the air at speeds easily in excess of 200 mph, more if she is pushing herself.Atomic Form!
Atomic Girl can shift her atoms around those of other objects, allowing her to pass through them or vice versa. This power takes a lot of concentration so she can be caught by surprise while still solid. Atomic Punch!
By focusing her body's neutrons into her fist, Atomic Girl can hit with the impact of a bazooka. She has done variations of this, like an Atomic Kick and an Atomic Headbutt. Atomic Suit!
Atomic Girl has learned to arrange some of her atoms into her costume. These atoms typically come from her body's waste, but she finds this too icky to discuss. Since the costume is part of her, she doesn't have to worry about it falling off while in Atomic Form, which was an early problem for her.Atomic Vision!
By sending out irradiated particles to penetrate matter and come back to her eyes, Atomic Girl has a form of "x-ray vision." She swears she has never used it to look at someone's naughty bits. Atomic Girl's eyes are also sensitive to infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths, allowing her to see in the dark.
It is quite possible that Atomic Girl will develop more abilities as she gains more experience and knowledge about her powers.
