Formerly the masked superhero known as Blackbird, Sandra Collins escaped the clutches of Death with the help of an unnamed soul. They woke up together as a gestalt consciousness, Cheshire, unexpectedly having brought the Sword of Death with them from the underworld. Much of her past life remains a blur.
While her companion is somewhat vengeance-driven after decades dead, Sandra maintains her focus on doing right. With the rest of the superhero community still mourning the loss of Blackbird, it’s unclear how she’ll be accepted in the future, especially with the brutally fatal nature of the Sword of Death.
Powers and Abilities
With one foot still in the grave, Cheshire retains the ability to skip back and forth across the dividing line between life and death. In her ghostly form, she’s capable of flight at 450 miles per hour. Furthermore, having returned from the dead once before, it’s unlikely that she’ll stay dead in the case of future fatality.
The Sword of Death, while not as potent as it’s sibling artefact, the Scythe of Death, possesses the power to harvest the life force of anything it cuts, leaving nothing but ash behind.
She also retains some of the skills she learned as Blackbird, particularly her acrobatics and fencing skills. To that, her companion brings a wicked streak of deception.
