Fictional character biography
Originally a member of a circus troupe, Pink Pearl decided to become a terrorist and attempt to take over the circus. An extremely large woman, her obesity enables her to have above-average strength and durability. Her plan was to use a bomb to murder the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of the United States. However, Northstar and Aurora of Alpha Flight discovered her plans and eventually confronted the woman.
During a battle, Pearl was stabbed in the chest with one of her own ally's, a thin-man named Bones, daggers, by accident. Due to her fat, she was able to survive the encounter; the dagger did not reach her heart, and later joined the villainess Superia on her cruise ship for female criminals. As a member of the Femizons, Pink Pearl went head-to-head with Captain America and Paladin. After the group's disbandment, Pink Pearl established herself as a business woman and opened a male strip club called "Cloisters." Unfortunately for her, Aurora, Guardian, and Diamond Lil were all patrons, and started a brawl. Pink Pearl eventually got the trio of women arrested,[volume & issue needed] and presumably still runs Cloisters. Pink Pearl speaks in third-person, and though comes across as being quite inadequate, she is quite intelligent and a formidable adversary.
