Faiza Hussain / Excalibur

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/faiza.jpg

Nationality: English

Species: Human mutate

First Appearance: Captain Britain and MI-13 #1 (July, 2008)

Faiza Hussain is a British doctor who gained super powers when hit by a Skrull laser whilst attending the wounded on the streets of London during the Skrull invasion of Earth. These powers appear to give Faiza a huge amount of control over matter at a sub-atomic level. So far she has shown the ability to completely deconstruct a human body into its base parts while keeping the person alive. She was also able to stop the motor functions of several Skrulls at once in order to assist Black Knight in a fight.


  • Audience Surrogate: She’s supposed to represent the audience viewpoint.
  • The Chick: The least physically powerful member of the team and the most emotional. Justified as she is not an experienced superhero, so she is very new to all and so lacks the nerve.
  • Cool Sword: She wields the legendary sword Excalibur.
  • Healing Hands: The primary use of her powers, though potentially also a subversion: she has control over living organisms; so she could use her powers to kill if she wanted.
  • Jumped at the Call: All she had to do was convince her parents...
  • Light Is Good: Her clothes are usually white and she's a kind person and a good doctor.
  • The Medic: She's a doctor and she has super powers that can be used to heal.
  • Most Common Superpower: Averted. She's not particularly busty.
  • Not Wearing Tights: Faiza sticks to civilian clothes.
    • Until she started wearing knightly armour, of course
