Powers: 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.
