    The character named Lament first appeared in the pages of Ultraforce #2 which was published by than Malibu Comics.


    Major Storylines

    Lament’s past is kept in mystery by her own choosing, although she has revealed that her true name is Sarah Walks Unseen. Sarah is a young woman of the First Nations Peoples, and also an Ultra. When asked about the origins of her ultra-abilities, told a story about an old Native American belief that if you wanted a child to be a great runner. She stated in the story that they sliced open a rabbit’s torso and place the young infant inside to “absorb the creature’s lament” and take on the characteristics of that animal. Sarah stated that something similar was done with her, only with a hi-tech security system. Now, Lament has the ability to go into “stealth mode” and avoid detection, an uncanny natural ability to manipulate computers and a powerful form of telekinesis.

    Lament’s mother hoped that her powers would be used for good, calling them “healing hands.” Sarah, however, found it far easier to hurt others than help them. She became a bounty hunter until the career caused her to burn out and join the Ultraforce. Her somewhat extreme measures led the Black Knight to boot her from the group and Sarah returned home to find out that her mother was critically ill. With her mother’s consent, Sarah ended the woman’s life, using her powers to kill for the last time. Lament has since taken a vow never to kill with her powers again.

    After the event known as "Black September" (when Marvel Comics purchased Malibu), the Ultraforce was re-created into a new team. Lament was introduced as a new member while Marvel's Black Knight became the leader of the new group. Although difficult at first in dealing with the new leadership in the team, Lament would soon turn away from her untrusting ways. The Black Knight's previous experience with the Avengers had made him a hardened leader and fighter. Soon Lament and the rest of the Ultraforce members would become a dynamic fighting unit.

    Powers and Abilities

    Lament is a young Ultra who can become invisible and telekinetically control her victims biological functions.
