ORIGIN STORY
Siobhan Stark was one of the rising stars scientists of C.R.E.S.T. (Center for Research in Electronics, Space and Technology), specializing in Cybernetics field and the possibility of total human/machine interfacing (the possibility of moving a person engrams to an android body). Working incessantly to prove her theories, and thus ascend professional positions in the company, she finally transferred her mind to an experimental battle android. But without taking proper care, her mind became trapped into the android, which ultimately killed her human body. Devastated by the fact, she used the android's capacities to wreak havoc in the labs, blaming C.R.E.S.T. for not telling her, in advance, of the perils she risked to. The Armed Forces squad who approached her to deal with the situation (and retrieve the battle android, which was a prototype made for them) only made matters worse. Since then, she has swore revenge on these two forces, striking them whenever is possible to cause as much damage as she can. She has suffered her losses, even on the brink of losing her "life", but managed to build extra Siobhan units along the way.

Siobhan 6's most famous ability is her power to predict how a battle will happen before it starts, which means she has an all-encompassing advantage in close-combat and tactical scenarios. Her 'fight implants' include a 'combat computer' that allows her to run through a given combat situation millions of times in her mind, working it out ahead of time for many possibilities, almost instantly covering nearly every possible result before the first punch is even thrown, while predicting enemy movements and tactics after the battle has engaged by recalling and utilizing memorized mannerisms acquired through past experience on a moment's notice. Siobhan 6 uses this information to predict the unfolding of the actions and reactions of her foes, counteracting their moves almost before they even think to make them. According to her, she can use this ability regressively, to visualize the desired outcome of a battle she wants and working backwards logically to achieve it, following the right steps to get there.

She has parts of her body replaced by cybernetic ones. Her fiber-lined muscles increase her strength enabling her to dismember opponents with her bare hands and feet, generally eschewing the use of firearms. She has inhuman balance as well as faster nerve endings so she can react quicker than any human: Siobhan 6 can move faster than the human eye in a quick speed burst. Siobhan 6 also has many survival-oriented implants to keep her fighting in the worst of conditions. As she is a cybernetic entity. Siobhan 6's mind simply cannot be affected to an optimal degree by telepaths. Siobhan 6 possesses, in essence, assured immortality. If her body is destroyed or in any way damaged beyond repair, her mind is usually immediately downloaded into another body (through telephone lines to a computer mainframe at hidden location). Each Siobhan unit (that’s why she’s now “6”, every unit more human-like than its predecessor) has a "brain" more powerful than any other computer, with high speed CPU processors, extensive files and being able to download data on her combat foes to best determine their weaknesses and defeat them. Also, her bionic left eye grants her telescopic and thermal vision, whilst her ear is able to directionally tune into where exactly she wants to hear.

(One of my favourite characters is DC's Wildstorm-imprint Midnighter and this is my take on a vindictive and feminine version of him. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book).
