The Ladyhawk twins are skilled in a variety of martial arts styles. Both of the twins are quite formidable opponents, but there is enough variation between their fighting styles for a trained eye (like Spider-Girl) to tell the two apart. They supplement their fighting skills with weapons, such as falcon-shaped shurikens, smoke bombs, capture rings, and sonic-throwing blades.
Twin sisters decided to use their skills to fight crime. One of the twins was a great fighter, while the other was good with technology. They sought training from Spider-Girl's mentor, Phil Urich (the former good Green Goblin, and soon were ready to face the forces of evil. The twins decided to share one identity rather than design two. They developed a green-and-orange costume very similar to the costume worn by the Falcon before he was given his wings. They adopted the codename "Ladyhawk", and proceeded to become a superhero.
They set up a "rule", that only one twin would use the identity at a time, so that people wouldn't suspect that Ladyhawk was really two girls. Individually, the Ladyhawk twins fought alongside (and sometimes with) Spider-Girl. The twins were very close, and when one was out in the field, the other would monitor their progress over the radio headset built into their cowl. As time progressed, the more aggressive of the two sisters began to use the identity more than her intellectual sibling.
The fighter Ladyhawk joined with Spider-Girl, The Buzz, Darkdevil, The Raptor, and Phil Urich (as Green Goblin) in the formation of a new New Warriors team. The smart Ladyhawk also joined, but only when her sister wasn't present. When Loki began to infuse heroes with dark energy that made them very hostile, he chose the combative Ladyhawk, and the brainy twin actually had to confront her physically stronger sister, until the spell was broken.
