Harness (Marvel)
Real Name: Erika Benson
Search for 'Harness (Marvel)' on Amazon

Harness wore an armored suit that projected a pair of fuzzy energy handcuffs she could use to mentally control her son Piecemeal. These fuzzy handcuffs were generated by her mutant power, but she may have needed the suit to focus it. The suit enhanced her strength and had a teleportation device, as well as a host of lethal weapons. She also appeared to have cybernetic connections to the suit itself.

rika Benson was the mother of Gilbert Benson, the mutant boy named Piecemeal who merged with the resurrected Proteus. She had been employed by A.I.M. to take Piecemeal around the world, absorbing all of the ambient energy of Proteus in their effort to recreate him.

Harness fought various members of the X-Teams when they were attempting to stop A.I.M.'s plan. She was taken into custody after the death of her son.
