View full history
Amelinda Lopez was a young thief in Chicago who was hit by a truck while a stealing the purse of Melody Case. Amelinda was infused with promethium from Dayton Industries by Mento after his agents to kidnap her from the hospital. Perhaps due to Amelinda's criminal background and the non effect the process did to her human appearance, she is one of the few Hybrids who serves Dayton willingly. She is lightning quick, street-smart, and engages in snappy talk during battle.
The character was created by Len Wein and Paris Cullins during DC's only run of the Blue Beetle starring Ted Kord. The character evolved with the series and is first seen stealing Ted Kord's girlfriend's (Melody) purse.
Amelinda is able to temporarily steal the kinetic energy of anyone she touches, thus adding their strength, speed and skill to her own. It has not yet been determined exactly how much energy she can absorb at any one time. She is an average street fighter who relies on her powers for combat.
