Random Character #53
Opened up the old random character generator [link]
and worked from the first hero name that it generated: ALPHA LADY.
At first I thought "sci-fi" and "super hero in tights." Then I thought "too obvious." So I went in another direction...
Introducing GOVERNESS, the ALPHA-LADY! Built during the 1890s, the Governess was the first coal-powered artificial battlefield combatant. The female design was to put soldiers more at ease with this war-machine at their side. Unfortunately, the war department was not as enthusiastic about this iron maiden as its engineer and further models were never constructed. Rediscovered in the early 21st century and upgraded, the Governess now serves as the nanny and protector to children of high profile politicians, entertainers and super heroes alike.
