Faiza Hussain is a British doctor who gained super powers when hit by a Skrull laser whilst attending the wounded on the streets of London during the Skrull invasion of Earth. These powers appear to give Faiza a huge amount of control over matter at a sub-atomic level. So far she has shown the ability to completely deconstruct a human body into its base parts while keeping the person alive. She was also able to stop the motor functions of several Skrulls at once in order to assist Black Knight in a fight.
Faiza Hussain was created by Paul Cornell and Leonard Kirk and first appeared in Captain Britain and MI:13 #1.
Mayor Story Arcs
During the Skrull's final assault on England, the Black Knight was fatally wounded by a magic blast from a magic-powered Super Skrull. Faiza used her powers to keep him alive, but was unable to repair the damage done to his body until the magical power was destroyed. After that, she was able to knit his bones back together and repair his entire body, even his T-shirt. After the battle ended, the Black Knight vouched for Faiza and she was invited to join MI: 13 as one of its core members. As the team left, Faiza pulled the sword Excalibur from the stone it had been buried in by Captain Britain, and in doing so became its new rightful owner. As a new member of MI: 13, she is receiving combat training and is now a full member of the British Intelligence Service.
Excalibur the Vampire Slayer
During an expedition to Wakanda with the Black Knight, Faiza got her armor which bears the Essex coat of arms and served as her superhero costume from then on. On the way back from Wakanda, Faiza and the Black Knight were attacked by Dracula in his first strike against Britain. Both Faiza and the Black Knight fell from their aircraft as it exploded during the attack, but were saved when Faiza managed to heal them both at the exact moment they hit the earth.
Upon landing safely, the pair was set on by vampires, where they learnt that the vampires were afraid of Excalibur. They immediately returned to London to regroup with the rest of MI: 13, where they found that Dracula had taken Faiza's father hostage and critically wounded her mother. Upon returning Pete Wisdom, the head of MI: 13 gave Faiza the code name "Excalibur" to strike fear into the hearts of Dracula's vampire minions. Faiza, or Excalibur, then became a key player in the war against Dracula as he tried to take over Great Britain for himself.
It has yet to be explored the full extent of her powers and the extent they can be used to, but this is sure to develop as her part in MI: 13 develops.
Powers and Abilities
Faiza possesses the ability to disassemble anything, including living beings, into its component parts, to manipulate various portions on an atomic level, and then restore it to its original condition. This is possible due to the fact that she innately knows the composition of anything she affects with her powers. Faiza is also capable of focusing on certain areas in particular.
When she takes people apart, those affected remain conscious and are able to talk. When she uses her power, a blue glow appears around her hands. A blue glow also appears around those affected by her power.
She can affect multiple targets simultaneously, but the more objects she attempts to manipulate, the greater the concentration is required from her. When using her powers on living beings, the target is rendered immobile until she allows them to move. Faiza finds it easier to affect shape-shifters, such as Skrulls, but more difficult to affect magic-based beings.
She also has the ability to immobilize multiple people at once, without disassembling them. This effect lasts until Faiza wills otherwise.
Hussain has recently acquired the legendary sword Excalibur, which she wields in combat.
Faiza is also a skilled medical doctor, and has received some training in Kung-Fu.
