Identity: Edith Freiberg
Kinetic Control: Incredible ability to transfer inertia from one mass to another. She can retain absorbed energy for 1-3 turns after which it MUST be released. She has developed the following power stunts:
Force fields: Incredible ability to stop missiles and kinetic attacks. Absorbed energy can then be redirected to kinetic bolts.
Mechanical Disruption: By interfering with the moving parts in mechanics, Inertia can cause machinery to “freeze up”.
Little is known about Edith’s life before being recruited by Nighthawk to serve in his team of super powered “Redeemers” to fight the influence of the Squadron Supreme’s “Utopia Program” on their alternate earth. Inertia, along with other Redeemers Moonglow, Thermite, Haywire and Redstone, infiltrated the Squadron and was elected to full membership.
