Backstory: Sole survivor of a devestating ship wreck which claimed the lives of everyone save for Christina Cade herself. She would wash ashore on Paradise Island and soon be adopted to live among them. Learning their ways, Christina would develop a love for the Amazonian sciences and push the limits of understanding for the joy of knowing…And beyond!
When Christina Cade made a startling breakthrough, she discovered the scientific process of giving life to clay. Visited by Aphrodite, Christina Cade was forbidden to further this line of research for there was some things woman was not meant to know.
Refusing to desist, Christina would leave Paradise Island and arrive in mans world with a head full of knowledge which she used to change the world. Firmly establishing herself as the foremost mind in bio technology before the field of bio technology even existed, Christina Cade gained vast wealth and influence. All of which went towards her ambitions of creating immortal clay constructs and stabalizing her own condition.
For Christinas experiments into giving life to clay allowed her to control them, create virtually anything the mind could concieve, and even outfit them with cybernetics to make them unstoppable killing machines.
However Christina Cades understanding of the process of giving life and basic sculpting technique were flawed, causing all of her creations to live short lives of terrible indescribable agony and suffering until the sweet and merciful embrace of death ended their painful lives.
Thus seeking out other brilliant scientists to perfect her technique, Christina Cade used her formula on herself, granting herself physical abilities comparable to Wonder Woman and sent terrible armies of clay constructs to hunt down the most brilliant of scientific minds to perfect her research.
So great was Christina Cades power that she could control anything that had been clay given life. Even Wonder Woman herself.
