Background

Sophie Berglund was brutally attacked on a university campus when she was working as a delivery driver. The men assaulted her and left her for dead, and she would have died had it not been for the Danish hero Holger Danske, who was in the area and who took her to the nearest hospital. Her injuries were severe. She lost her right eye and most of her left breast because of the savage attacks, as well as severe internal injuries.

Sophie was traumatised and when she was released she hid away in her small apartment, refusing to answer the door or her phone. Her family were worried but couldn't make contact. Everyone who knew her began whispering that it would have been better if she had died, rather than to live the hollow life she now had.

When thieves broke into her apartment, thinking it was vacant, they unwittingly activated Sophie's latent ubergene. In fear for her life again, Sophie found herself so terrified that she couldn't move. During this torpor something deep within her rebelled. She found herself watching as a passenger while her body attacked the invaders. Her body pummelled and broke the men. She watched in wide-eyed horror as her apartment was trashed, blood smeared everywhere and the three thieves dead and mangled.

No one investigated.

Everyone thought Sophie was still hiding away.

When she felt calm enough, Sophie began venturing out at night to watch her body enact violence against other men. At first she was content to watch, safely hidden at the back of her mind, but after a while Sophie realised that she had been in control the whole time and that she enjoyed the violence her body now found itself capable of dealing.

Somehow her actions took on the power of urban legend and she became known as the Man Killer. She received pleas in the forms of open letters at bus stations or in parks. Other women called out to her to avenge them. Sophie tracked the women down and listened to their stories, and more often than not she acted on the news, killing those men who had dared to inflict such pain. During this time she tracked down her own abusers. They were killed on the college grounds, mere metres from where she had been attacked.

It was this attack that drew the attention of Holger Danske and the hero went to Sophie's apartment to confront her. At first she denied the charges, but after being tracked by Holger Danske a battle ensued. Sophie fled and has been opposed ever since by the Brotherhood - an organisation that she considers as dangerous and manipulative as the men she hunts.

Personality
Man Killer avenges the women of Denmark who have been victims of sexual assault. She sees herself as the only one willing to do what is necessary to eradicate the scum, even though she knows what she is doing is illegal. Her pain is still constant, both the physical and the psychological; but she has learned to live with the pain.

At times she has appeared to soften in her stance. For several months she restrained herself and with the help of Holger Danske she seemed to be getting better, becoming more accepting of her condition. She even started a relationship with Holger Danske, although it ended horribly when she had a flashback to her assault. Thinking Holger Danske was one of her attackers she lashed out at him, nearly killing him. The Brotherhood tracked her down but she evaded them by diving into the North Sea.

While still having some feelings for Holger Danske, Man Killer remains a cold and calculated killer of men.

Powers

Man Killer is a latent uber able to intuitively move and strike in combat. Her body becomes a weapon and even though she has had no combat training she is lethal. She also has a limited danger sense, warning her of approaching peril, particularly in relation to the approach of authorities. Many times she has escaped the Brotherhood.

Appearance

Man Killer is a product of her past. The vicious assault on her left her with one eye and one breast, as well as other internal injuries. She wears an eye patch. While originally a brunette, Sophie dyed her hair white and cut it into an incredible short buzz cut. When on the prowl as Man Killer she wears a purple bodysuit made of durable kevlar, and a long sleeved black leather jacket and gloves. She carries an automatic pistol in a holster on a thick belt and has tough high boots.
