Character du Jour: Full Metal Jackie

Major Jacqueline Jones is not your average soldier. Hardline, uncompromising and terminally allergic to anything resembling desk duty, it’s amazing she’s stayed in the service for even a single tour. Yet her results speak for themselves. She signed up following 9/11, leaving a promising medical career to quickly rise the ranks and earn the respect of anyone who crossed her path.

Then came Landfall at Azrab.

The actual details are sketchy and highly classified. Something fell from the sky, impacting the ground outside a small town in Iraq. Major Jones’ unit arrived on scene to investigate, and whatever it was in that fiery crater bonded to her skin, coating her entirely in an unknown metal. She also obtained a ring-like device which allows her to teleport great distances. Major Jones now possesses great strength and toughness, and can fire powerful blasts of pure energy (though the effort tires her). Heat accelerates her ability to heal, and extreme cold nulifies her powers entirely. How these abilities work, and what their origins are, remains a mystery.

No, Major Jacqueline Jones is not your average soldier. Not any more.

Dirty little secret: The “something” which fell from the sky is not extra-terrestrial in origin. That’s all I’m sayin’.


Notes: Here’s my little homage to both Bombshell from the Teen Titans and Terry Moore’s Echo, with just a touch of Magog thrown in for good measure. I like!
