History: Misty Knight was the best marksman in her class at the New York police academy, and graduated at the top of her class. She became a patrolwoman for New York's Twelfth Precinct. Her friendship with Colleen Wing began when she saved Wing from criminal gunfire in the course of duty. Later, she saw terrorists throw a bomb into a bank. She seized the bomb, but before she could throw it into a safe place, it exploded. Her right arm had to be amputated, and it was replaced with a bionic steel arm designed at Stark International. Due to her injury, Knight had to retire from active duty as a policewoman, and rather than accept a desk job with the police department, she resigned.

Knight and Wing formed a partnership as private investigators and called their firm Nightwing Restorations, Ltd. Due to Wing's samurai-style training and both partners' expertise in the Oriental martial arts; they have been dubbed "the Daughters of the Dragon." Knight and Wing are frequent allies of Iron Fist and Power Man, and Knight has had a long romantic relationship with Iron Fist.

Height: 5 ft. 9 in.

Strength Level: Misty Knight possesses the normal human strength of a woman of her age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. Her bionic right arm possesses superhuman strength, which she can use to create a vise-like grip. However, since the rest of her body has not been bionically altered, she cannot use her bionic right arm to lift heavier weights than she could when she had her natural right arm. (Her back, shoulders, and legs could not support the strain of lifting such weights.)

Known Superhuman Powers: None, aside from the superhuman strength of her bionic right arm.

Abilities: Misty Knight is a superb detective, an excellent marksman, a good athlete, and a fine hand-to-hand combatant, with considerable knowledge of the martial arts.
