The story so far...
By donning an ancient gauntlet, Kristie Owens gained incredible strength and resistance and can conjure large heavy weapons to use in combat. There was a downside to this however in that she cannot now remove the glove from her arm. Criminals of Millennium, are you ready to face the Gauntlet?
An Iron Fist...
was an ancient norse warrior maiden. She fought in many battles and caught the eye of Freyja
as one who may be worthy to become a Valkyrie
one day. During a particularly bloody encounter Vigdis lost her right hand but continued to fight on, eventually overcoming her gigantic foe. In honour of her prowess in battle and her service to her people, Freyja granted an ancient Asgardian Gauntlet to Vigdis. The gauntlet (long since seperated from it's left twin) was forged at the same time as Járngreipr
, the iron gauntlets worn by Thor
Enchanted by it's dwarven maker, the gauntlets were called Vápnstefnari
and each could summon a weapon owned by the wearer from anywhere to his or her current location. The gauntlets also empowered the wearer with enough strength and resilience to bear the summoned weapon in battle, allowing the owner to use weapons much more massive than they would normally be able to. Nothing is known of the fate of the left glove, the right however came to Freyja in repayment of a debt.
Once Vigdis donned Vápnstefnari it magically bonded itself to her forearm. Somehow knowing that Freyja did not mean her any harm Vigdis accepted her new 'hand' and continued on with her life, never finding herself without a weapon in battle. After many years Freyja returned to Vigdis and offered her the opportunity to join the Valkyrie. Having been unable to find a worthy opponent in all the years since obtaining Vápnstefnari and fearing that old age may claim her before a death in battle, Vigdis accepted and returned to Fólkvangr with Freyja.
The Qularr Invasion changed the lives of many. Kristie Owens, the hero better known to the populace of Millennium City as Knockout, found her life forever changed by the events of those dark days. Already out on patrol in the West Side, K.O. was amongst the first to engage the strange insectoid aliens that spewed from the landing craft. Holding her own at first as she directed frightened civilans to locations of safety, she soon found herself being overrun by sheer numbers; finding herself losing ground as she struggled to make space to throw a punch or kick at her attackers. In order to give herself some time to catch her breath and perhaps find other heroes to even the numbers, K.O leapt high onto a fire escape amidst a barrage of energy beams and venom attacks. K.O. quickly raced up the creaking stairwell as the insectoids approached the base, and as she reached the top she turned to see a Qularr scout ship bearing down on her. Tearing a metal stanchion from the stairwell she was poised to throw it as a make shift javelin at the approaching craft, when the metal beneath her feet gave way under the combined assault of her attackers sending her falling surrounded by shards of rusted shrapnel that had once been the platform upon which she stood.

Knockout was known mostly for her extraordinary strength and agility
Kristie recently acquired a Copperhead Grav Bike together with a custom designed flight suit to complement it.
