Doctor Rosetta McLuhan felt the laughter cut through her tenuous emotional shields.  She had always prepared herself for derision, but the laughter of dozens of her peers seemed to break her apart piece by piece.  She stumbled back from the stage, clutching her clipboard to her chest, head down and eyes brimming with embarrassed tears.

The scientific community had laughed at her for the last time.

They wouldn't listen to her theories, mocked her schematics.  Her sponsors had fled to more media-friendly and popular alternatives, leaving McLuhan with no funding and no tenure.  There was no alternative but to make the prototype, to put everything she had and more into the act of creating the battlesuit which would vindicate the years of agonising research and development.

It took her nearly six months, but in the end she had it.  She called it the Iron Maiden and allowed herself to fully test its systems, flying out into the world in search of situations which would test the firepower and resilience of her armour.  McLuhan was obsessed with proving her theories were feasible, that her battlesuit was worth backing.  She saw a semitrailer travelling down the highway, but instead of seeing it as a vehicle driven by a human being, she only saw an object which was heavy and moving fast.  Target practice.

She destroyed the truck.  Then she destroyed a light airplane, followed by a cargo ship in the harbour.

Within the armour she was ecstatic.

She returned to her laboratory and began to build more.  She financed her continued production with bank heists, and after two years she had nearly built 50 suits.  On a trip to garner more funds she was opposed by Sanction and solidly beaten by Major American.  She lost consciousness and woke up in her laboratory, inside another of her battlesuits.  The discovery sent her to the brink.  She had physically transferred across space.

She sent her armoured suits into battle, able to control them from a central point, but just as easily to move her physical body between them.

Sanction didn't know what had hit them.

Iron Maiden scattered them like bowling pins and then fled back to Canada.

Since discovering that she was an uberhuman as well as a master builder of lethal battlesuits, McLuhan decided that she could establish a reputation outside of the scientific world.  She began to formulate ways she could offer her services as a one-person army to the highest bidder.

Witch Doctor needed such an army as he planned to take over Azambia.  McLuhan was hired, and the rest is history.  McLuhan, as Iron Maiden, is known across the world as a powerful invasion force, offering her services to the highest bidder.

McLuhan is an obsessive woman who will never get used to the scorn from her peers.  She is constantly frustrated and embarrassed by poor reviews of her work or derision from colleagues.  The only way she can balance the public humiliation is through Iron Maiden.  When she dons the armour she becomes a ruthless mercenary, capable of destroying governments and small countries.  When she steps out of the armour she reverts to her meek and unassertive self.
"The contents of my contract are clear.  This land no longer belongs to you."

McLuhan is an uber with the unusual ability to transfer her physical body across any of her battlesuits, which probably manifested itself during her obsessive months of working on the prototype.  While she is able to transfer her physical body across any distance, she is also able to control each of her battlesuits from a central point.  This gives her the power to control a veritable army of battlesuits, although each suit takes at least a week to manufacture.

The suits themselves are made of a Carborundium-matrix compound and powered by a combination of solar and nuclear fusion.  She has developed powerful weapons and flight systems.


In her civilian guise, McLuhan is an ordinary looking woman with a rather long thin nose and squinting eyes hidden behind large owl-like glasses.  Her battlesuits, on the other hand, are menacing and faceless; dominated by black, dark red and greys.
