A former W.I.L.D operative, Alex Cole has the ability to absorb kinetic energy and transform it into muscle mass. However, these rapid shifts in size and weight have played havoc with her joints and now, even before hitting 30, she has been forced to retire from active duty. She refrains from using her powers unless absolutely necessary, as doing so causes her great discomfort. Since leaving W.I.L.D she has joined The Watchman’s Outcasts, a group of superhumans hiding from society, feeling that she could do more good helping her fellow superhumans in need than just sitting around all day feeling sorry for herself. Being one of only two members of the group with any real experiance of superheroics, she has been pushed into a prominant leadership position within the group and is one of the first people most will turn to with their problems.
