Vamp (a.k.a. Animus) (Marvel)
Real Name: Denise Baranger
Search for 'Vamp (a.k.a. Animus) (Marvel)' on Amazon

The Vamp was in athletic physical condition and was an excellent hand-to-hand combatant; she held a black belt in Judo.
Apparently the Vamp possessed limited telepathic abilities in her normal form.
Her Absorbo-Belt enabled her to duplicate the powers and abilities of those within an undefined radius of her. However, she never actually seemed to demonstrate superhuman powers, primarily using the belt to replicate human levels of strength and skill. It is known that her belt could not replicate the vast strength of the Hulk.

The Animus had Class 25 strength (see comments) and durability, and could project powerful psionic bolts of concussive force from her forehead. She possessed telekinesis, sufficient to derail a full-speed train or to animate inanimate objects, even something as large as the statue in the Lincoln Memorial. However, the Animus could not project its psychic energy without remaining absolutely still.
The Animus possessed a large crystalline club, which it used primarily as a weapon, thought it served to store most of the Animus' enormous psionic energy. It sometimes used the club to focus and project its psychic attacks.
The Animus was apparently still female, but it lacked secondary sex characteristics (at least in the upper half of its body. Translation: It did not have breasts).
The transformation into the Animus was entirely controlled by remote control via a device possessed by Kligger. Her clothes also transformed with her, returning to normal when she became the Vamp again.
The Animus could be teleported away during a battle, though this was presumably via remote Corporation equipment and presumably not under her direct control.

The Vamp was among the 17 costumed criminals killed by the Scourge of the Underworld in Ohio at the Bar With No Name.
