The Ellis Love wiki last edited by pikahyper on 07/11/13 12:35PM View full history


Serving out a sentence on the Raft, Ellis Love was freed by Nick Fury, presumably along with Aaron Downing, to be drafted into the Secret Warriors. Her name was one of many on Fury's list of Caterpillars, untapped superhumans he could use for his secret war against HYDRA and Leviathan. She was assigned to Team Black, where all of the more problematic Caterpillars were sent to be led by Alexander Pierce


Ellis Love  was created by Jonathan Hickman and first illustrated by Alessandro Vitti in Secret Warriors. The character was first mentioned in the back matter of the first issue of Secret Warriors, which featured Nick Fury's list of Caterpillars. Wolfe did not actually appear until midway into the series, where Team Black appeared for one story arc.  

Major Story Arcs 

Last Ride of the Howling Commandos 

Ellis Love  and the rest of Team Black were deployed to take part in a joint attack on  HYDRA's  Hell's Heaven base in China along with the Howling Commandos PMC. The operation was a success with Team Black taking point on the infiltration of the base, allowing for a bomb to be detonated inside that reduced it all to burning rubble. With their mission complete, Team Black made their own separate exit from China apart from the Howling Commandos, not realizing that the Howling Commandos would suffer a devastating battle against HYDRA forces after they left. 

Wheels Within Wheels 

Having won his secret war against HYDRA and Leviathan, Nick Fury pulled together all of the surviving members of the Secret Warriors and Howling Commandos together into a new organization sponsored by the United Nations. This included Love and the rest of Team Black, who now served in this organization under the overall command of Daisy Johnson.

Powers and Abilities

First listed in the Caterpillar file as simply telepathic, Ellis Love is later revealed to be both telepathic and telekinetic after months of training as part of the Secret Warriors. The origin of her power is unknown, but it can likely be assumed she is not a mutant due to never appearing on the X-Men's radar. 
Presumably, Love has received the same training in espionage and combat as other members of the Secret Warriors.
