Misty Knight

Misty is a former New York cop with a bionic arm, martial arts skills, and an attitude.

Her job as an active police halted after losing her right arm to a terrorist’s bomb. Tony Stark arranged for her to receive a bionic prosthetic replacement limb in recognition of her bravery. Against taking a desk job for the police, she became a private investigator, with her friend Colleen Wing (alias: Samurai). As Knightwing Restorations, nicknamed the Daughter of the Dragon, the two often dealt with cases nobody else was willing to resolve.

Misty was also a long time room-mate to Jean Grey until she rejoined the X-Men, and before the Dark Phoenix Saga.

Misty would meet the love of her life, Daniel Rand, through Colleen. Danny is a superhero who goes by the name Iron Fist, a member of the Heroes for Hire organization. Knightwing Restorations has helped Heroes for Hire on multiple occasions.

During the Civil War event, Misty took the side of the Registration, using the Heroes for Hire name to hunt down fugitive heroes for the government. Notable names on the team included Colleen, Black Cat (Felicia Hardy) and Shang Chi, the Master of Kung Fu. After Captain America’s surrender, they would adventure in the Savage Land, bust a black market ring selling Skrull organs and ultimately disband after being captured in the Hulk’s ship during World War Hulk. During that adventure, the team is betrayed by Humbug, which results in Colleen and the new Tarantula being brutally tortured.

After a long period of ill definition, Danny and Misty finally become a formal couple in the pages of Immortal Iron Fist. At the end of that series, Misty was believed to be pregnant with Iron Fist’s child until she found out it was only traces of his lifeforce and not an actual conception.

Misty Knight is highly skilled in martial arts and is a proficient hand-to-hand combatant, with police combat training. She also has near-perfect aim with firearms, and possesses superb detective skills. Her bionic arm is superhumanly strong, and she can punch a target with incredible force, or crush objects as tough as steel in her vise-like grip. However, since the rest of her body is not cybernetically enhanced, she cannot lift objects heavier than her back, shoulders, and legs can physically support. Her arm’s advantages as a weapon are limited to kinetic crushing and impact forces.

Her original bionic right arm is an alloy of Antarctic vibranium and diamond; at close range it can liquefy all known metals including adamantium. It is also now able to generate a wide anti-gravity repulsor field similar to Iron Man’s armor.

It can also apparently release a concentrated beam of cryogenic energy, which can cover a target in a blanket of ice from a distance. This cold also seems to make the target much more fragile, allowing otherwise durable materials to be broken or rended when frozen. Iron Man also revealed the arm also displays technopathic capabilities, teaching Misty how to control a horde of robots. Following her “pregnancy”, Danny Rand spent money on additional features to the arm, including magnetism and a concussive blast.
