Another day she may vibrate the molecules of a common pencil to gain access to the brainstem of her combatant. She is a gamechanger. Not to mention her contacts with multiple ets.This one contains true grit and can be counted on to do what is right. Her years with the X set have given her access to every scenario, every heartbreak and she has not and will not harden her heart. She would be a great foil to Dr.Doom and the Thing would always back her, which would also serve to mitigate their natural antagonism.
