Impala is an athletic woman, and a highly adept hand-to-hand combatant. She is an Olympic-level javelin thrower with unerring aim. Impala carries a number of interlocking javelins varying in length from 1.5' to 2', some with sharpening points, carried in a miniature quiver on her back. These javelins can be used as throwing weapons or locked together to form vaulting poles.
In the Marvel Comics universe, Impala (real name unknown) is female, and apparently African in origin. She is a mercenary, but follows a strict honor code. A non-powered athlete and fighter, she carries various throwing weapons, particularly a set of extensible javelins. She was briefly seen allied with Asp and Black Mamba, but has rarely appeared recently. She was said to have previously battled members of the Supremacists, a team of superhumans based in South Africa.
