DAY 7-21st Century Sandshark Studios Presents: MISS NOCTURNAL

| November 7, 2012 | 0 Comments






Maya Alvarez was born in Havana Cuba in September of 1940.  When she was four, her father was killed by the local organized crime ring for not paying his protection fee for his small business.  Her mother did her best to try and raise her, but at the age of 10 her mother died of breast cancer.  From the age of 10 on, Maya lived on the streets, fending for herself as a petty thief, and sometime street performer.  Over time she came to the notice of a group of revolutionaries, who slowly indoctrinated her into their group.  When the Cuban revolution broke out, Maya acted as a spy and saboteur.  When Castro came to power in 1959, Maya joined the Cuban Army and earned a commission.  In 1960 her life was changed forever when she, along with four others across the globe were abducted by a unknown alien entity, and had experiments performed upon her, before being returned along with the others.

At first, things seemed normal; all she could recall was in a fractal dream state.  But within 48 hours, she began to mutate, her skin turning purple, growing bat like wings, and developing a form of echolocation that could be used as a weapon like a sonic scream.  She also developed a strange connection to try and find the other abductees.  Through a set of unusual circumstances the group all met up and over time formed a team of costumed adventurers called THE PHANTOM FIVE.  Maya was dubbed Miss Nocturnal by the media.  At first she was considered a loose cannon due to her aversion to her western world team mates, and general temperament to her other members.  But over time she became a trusted and fiercely protective member of the group, going so far as to develop a strange romance with fellow team member Construct.

Then in 1975, the team joined other super heroes, villains, and world armies, to do battle with a space conqueror known as GHOR THE AHNILALATOR.  Ghor was defeated but at a high price.  Many soldiers and supers were killed including Miss Nocturnal and all but one of The Phantom Five.
