Fictional character biography

A Palestinian ferrokinetic, Iron Butterfly is the Shadow Cabinet's field commander. Although her origins are uncertain (she's given conflicting accounts), it is known that her family was murdered and that she is seeking to avenge this. She is secretly in love with Dharma, the team's leader, as evidenced when she refused to escape after he decided to imprison the entire team in their base.

Powers and Abilities

Iron Butterfly is able to move and shape metal and metallic objects. She can apparently feel the details of composition of the metal. When going into battle she wears medieval style plate armor with huge angel wings.
