History: As yet, nothing is known about the Asp's life before she was invited to join the Serpent Society. The Asp accepted the invitation, and has been active in the group ever since. Once of her first recorded missions undertaken with her fellow Serpents was the attempt to assassinate Modok.

Strength Level: The Asp possesses the normal human strength of a woman of her age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.

Known Superhuman Powers: The Asp possesses the ability to generate and project an unknown form of radiant energy which causes paralysis in those exposed to it. Her body constantly produces this energy, which upon exceeding her body's storage capacity, discharges itself in minute amounts through her skin. (Prolonged physical contact with the Asp is fatal to human beings.) By tapping her body's total store of energy, she can emit directed, visible lightning-like discharges she call her "venom bolts." She generally projects them from her fingertips. At maximum strength, these venom-bolts can kill an average size man standing six feet from her. The energy causes a rapid paralysis of its victim's nervous system. A non-fatal discharge will retain its potency for about four hours, depending upon the strength of the blast and the strength of the nervous system of the victim. The venom-bolt has effects on anything other than living organisms.

After discharging her body's total store of energy, it takes the Asp about one half hour to regenerate her power to peak levels. She can recharge her body's store of energy faster by accelerating her metabolic rate through physical activity. She generally rebuild her energy level by making swaying and undulating motions with her torso and arms. An accomplished dancer with superb muscular control, the Asp moves in a manner that is almost hypnotic in its provocativeness. Engaging in her "snake-dance," the Asp can regenerate her energy to peak capacity with in ten minutes.

Abilities: As noted above, the Asp possesses the skill, grace coordination and muscle control of an accomplished dancer. Deploring violence, she has never learned traditional methods of hand-to-hand combat.
