AKA: Courtney Mason
Abilities:: Super-strength, energy absorption, flight, force beams, touch of death, channels the Animus entity and can drain the life force from her surroundings

Courtney Mason can leech bio-energy, manifest mystical armor and a blade, and her body is a conduit to summon the monstrous Animus. She's been a member of the Blood Pack and the Titans and an ally of Young Justice.

  • Bad Powers, Good People: She works as a hero and from a desire to save people even though her abilities include, to her horror, the Touch of Death. This element of her powerset and personal history was forgotten in her Titans appearances.

  • Instant Armor: Had this in her original powerset.
  • Life Drinker: She's horrified by this element of her powers but she does gain them by pulling the life force from others and she can do so fatally.
  • Power Incontinence: Its incredibly dangerous to have limited control of your powers when your powers including draining life energy, and her lack of control is the reason she left her home in New Orleans.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Writers after her reintroduction seemed to forget all about the Animus entity, who could have also saved her from her predicament.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Through her own series and her original DCU appearances, Courtney was a tomboyish punk and wore spiked armor that covered her whole body. By the time she was brought back for Titans East, many fans at first confused her for Amethyst of Gemworld as she was redesigned to wear skimpy violet armor, had long flowing hair, and was much more conventionally feminine in appearance and personality.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sported purple hair for a while after her redesign, until it was changed back to blonde.
