    Moondragon 

Moondragon

Real name: Heather Douglas
Team(s) served on: The Avengers


  • Ace Pilot: She is a skilled starship pilot.
  • A God Am I: Has her moments
  • Arrogant Kung Fu Girl: She is a superb alien hand-to-hand combatant, trained by the Titanian monks of Shao-Lom who were veteran practitioners in martial arts. Douglas is well versed in pressure points.
  • Bald Women: Heather is not naturally bald. She shaves her head preferring to be bald, though has worn short hair in the past.
  • Bi the Way: She tried mating with the original Quasar, then started seeing the newer more female Quasar, though that could be just her trying to fulfill a prophecy. She and and the new Quasar (Phyla-Vell) were lovers before the latter was Quasar, and Moony had had a lesbian tryst (with Marlo Chandler, Rick Jones' wife) before that. Moondragon even said that she didn't feel any true attraction to the men she had tried to attract in the past, so this is a debatable case.
  • Bury Your Gays: After she was infected with mutated spores and started to die; the Dragon of the Moon appeared and told her it could save her life, but only if she agreed to be its host. She accepted, and, now an evil being, battled the Defenders, until four of them sacrificed themselves to kill both her and the Dragon.
    • Back from the Dead: Heather's soul managed to survive, and, now free from the Dragon again, contacted a cousin of hers; through her, she was able to obtain a new body for herself, a clone created on Titan.
  • The Engineer
  • The Gift: Moondragon is a classic case of this. Orphaned by the renegade Thanos of Titan, she was brought up on his homeworld and instructed in physical and mental disciplines for which she proved to have considerable talent. She got proud enough to challenge the Dragon in the Moon and apparently proved good enough to destroy it, which did not help. At her best she is insufferably arrogant (being almost That Damned Good to boot), and when the DitM's influence surfaces she lapses into full-blown Megalomania. Life with her new girlfriend seems to have mellowed her... somewhat.
  • Good Bad Girl
  • Interspecies Romance: With Phyla -Vell.
  • Lipstick Lesbian
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Douglas is an expert in various advanced Titanian sciences as well as Earth human sciences.
  • Psychic Powers: Heather Douglas was one of the most powerful human born telepaths ever. Her telepathic abilities include mind-control, mental attacks, mental shielding, personality alteration, memory erasure, memory modification. Douglas telepathic range is virtually limitless, as she is able to contact minds scattered throughout a solar system without enhancement devices such as Xavier's Cerebro.
    • Douglas' most notable psychic actions were the complete mental enslavement of an entire warring planet of people, psionically stalemating the sorcerer supreme Doctor Strange for an extended period of time, and mentally killing a clone of Thanos endowed with psionic powers greater than Professor X, as well as being able to pierce the mental barriers of Galactus and even enabling Thanos to almost overwhelm the devourer's mind when channeling her powers. All feats beyond that of Xavier and most other noted human and human mutant psychics.
  • Raised By Aliens: When was little, she was found by Thanos' father, Mentor, who took her to his home world, Titan, to be raised.
  • Scaled Up: Was only able to turn into a dragon once but she made it count.
  • Stalker with a Test Tube: To Quasar. Her Coming-Out Story revolved around her realizing that she had only ever used sex and romance as a means to an end, rather than an end in itself.
  • Twofer Token Minority
