Fictional character biography[edit]

A member of the Sisters of Sin, Slash was a young disciple of the Red Skull. Her physical age was accelerated into an old woman, calling herself Sister Agony because of the razor-sharp talons she had in place of her hands. She and her Sisters attacked Captain America but were defeated.[volume & issue needed] She was eventually restored to her natural age. However, soon after, she returned alongside the Sisters of Sin, this time as a young adult. She and her sisters were once again defeated by Captain America.[volume & issue needed]

She was later seen at a bar with the Answer, playing strip games with her sisters.[1]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Slash wields razor-sharp metal claws and is well-trained in battle. However, because her mental age is that of a child, she is often easily defeated.
