View full history
According to Anguish, she was raised by her abusive stepfather after her mother passed away in a housefire. He eventually kicked her out and took a locket from her, containing the only existing picture of her mother, and he hid it away in a safety deposit box out of resentment for her being alive and his having to take care of her. It was due to searching for and finding this locket in a Metropolis bank that she ran into Superman, making her debut.
Anguish was created by Superman writers/artists Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens. Originally solicited as Masochist, her name was later changed to Anguish.
Powers & Abilities
At least enough to effortlessly lift a news-van, or sucker-punch Superman across a street with force enough to shatter a concrete wall.
Her body seems to instinctively change density when attacked allowing bullets and energy (Superman's eye lasers) alike to pass clear through her body.
