Empowered, real name Elissa Megan Powers, is the titular main character and an affiliate member of the Superhomeys team.
Biography[edit | edit source]
She chose her nom de guerre by default, unable to come up with anything better. (Say My Name)
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
Elissa's powers come from her hypermembrane suit. When intact, it grants her multiple powers. However, the suit is extremely fragile, and will quickly lose power when torn. Fortunately, it regenerates over time. (Yay, Me!)
Emp's suit will only work for her. (All Mine)
The suit provides powers which include:
- Enhanced strength (W00t!)
- Damage resistance (at the cost of material) (That's What You'd Think)
- Hand-launched energy blasts (or 'vorps') (Yay, Me!)
