Ballistic made semi-regular appearances in the Cyberforce series, and subsequently appeared in a three-issue self-titled mini-series in 1995. She also co-starred in a single issue crossover with Marvel Comics' Wolverine in 1997.
Fictional character biography
Ballistic is Cassandra Lane, the sister of Velocity. The two girls were raised by their mother and abusive stepfather, until finally Cassandra killed him in self-defense.
Cassandra was the star pitcher of her high school baseball team due to her mutant abilities, until Tony (her ex-boyfriend) and his gang seriously injured her. Some time later, she was approached by the Cyberdata company, who replaced her arm with a cybernetic one, simultaneously brainwashing her into becoming a SHOC (Special Hazardous Operations Cyborg) for the company. She was assigned to retrieve her sister, Velocity, who had defected to Cyberforce, but wound up having her own memories restored. Soon after she joins the team in their efforts to bring down Cyberdata.
Powers and abilities
Ballistic has superhuman hand-to-eye coordination. As such she has near-perfect aim with any thrown object or projectile weapon. Her implanted bionic arm, while superhumanly strong and durable, functions as well as (if not better than) her remaining natural arm.
