Fictional character biography
A young valley girl with electrical-based mutant powers, Stinger is a member of the Alliance of Evil, Apocalypse's original strike force. Because of her youth, Stinger often handles situations recklessly, as seen when she accidentally kills Michael Nowlan's girlfriend, Susan. This is after Nowlan had escaped Apocalypse's services yet again and he had sent the team to bring her back. Stinger stays with the Alliance of Evil when they defy the Mutant Registration Act, and later battles the New Mutants with the team.
Powers and abilities
Stinger can build static energy around her hands and discharge it as bioelectricity bolts.
Age of Apocalypse
In the harsh reality known as Age of Apocalypse, Wendy was one of the thousands of refugees who took residence at Avalon. She was living there for five years when Apocalypse's troops found the secret place. She was the first to be possessed by the Shadow King who used her electric bolt powers to create havok on Avalon, until she was killed by Mystique.
Stinger appears in Marvel Avengers Academy as of Feb 18, costume mirrors Ant-Man costumes from Hank Pym, but blonde hair and reference to being similar age to father in this time (as its a teen academy Scott Lang is present/recuit and Hank Pym is adult "teacher" established in game).
