Fahrenheit
Real Name: Lauren Pennington
Search for 'Fahrenheit' on Amazon


Powers:
Fahrenheit is a seedling (mutant) whose pyrokinetic powers enable her to agitate the molecules in objects, quickly heating them like a microwave oven. When used on combustible materials, they burst to flames. When using it on the air surrounding her, she can create and control updrafts strong enough to let her fly at formidable speeds.

In joining StormWatch, she also underwent a bit of combat training (from the hands of Backlash) to get a solid level of hand to hand fighting skill.

Fahrenheit awoke from a coma sometime after the destruction of the Stormwatch sattelite to find she had lost her powers.

Bio:
Lauren's latent powers were revealed when she found herself trapped in a burning building as a young woman. The building was ravaged by the fire, reduced to ash and cinders, but when firefighters combed through the wreckage, they found her unconscious but otherwise unhurt. Hearing of her miraculous survival, Synergy tracked her down and activated her powers. After undergoing the rigorous training required of a StormWatch operative, Lauren was offered a position in StormWatch Two, the reserve team.

At this point, the UN was still under the control of the shadowy, paranoid group of multi-billionaires called the Special Security Council - and their claws were sunk particularly deep in StormWatch. Thus, while they were heroes, the operatives of StormWatch were quite ruthless and did not hesitate to violate the rights of a country in order to advance the agenda of the Special Security Council.

Fahrenheit, an old StormWatch hand, served under Bendix's leadership, then Synergy's. When Bendix was put in charge again and modified the teams' lineup, Fahrenheit was appointed leader of StormWatch Red, the heavy fire team designed for deterrent display and retaliation. But the kind of missions she was sent to perform were not making her very comfortable - though she acted as a good, moral soldier. She began a relationship with fellow StormWatch Officer Hellstrike.

Fahrenheit met her doom when the StormWatch super-satellite was boarded by hundreds of Aliens as it attempted to destroy an incoming celestial body before it would collide with the Earth. The courageous young woman was mourned as a hero by her few surviving team mates.
