|First Appearance||Don't Let Them Bury Me; I'm Not (Quite) Dead|
Mother Tongue is a former superhero and a member of the Superdead.
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
Mother Tongue has a massive, prehensile "pseudotongue".
Mother Tongue gained her abilities from a power bargain; upon her death, she resurrected as a Superdead. Though missing both arms and her entire body from the chest down, she is still able to move around by supporting herself with her pseudotongue.
Story[edit | edit source]
In A Very Long and Very Uncomfortable Eternity, Deathmonger raids the Homeycrib. While he abducts most of the Superdead, he merely tears out Mother Tongue's pseudotongue and leaves her now-helpless body behind, like garbage. Empowered has Sistah Spooky use Mother Tongue as a focus for a divination spell to find her pseudotongue, thus locating Deathmonger's lair. In the ensuing battle, Deathmonger sets his lair to self-destruct and then attempts to teleport away, but Empowered lassos him with the amputated pseudotongue and leaves him trapped in the exploding lair while escaping with the remaining Superdead.
