Letha
Real Name: Hellen Feliciano
Search for 'Letha' on Amazon


Powers:
Superhuman strength (2 tons) following treatment from Power Broker.

Letha was a superb wrestler and hand-to-hand combatant who was known for her highly acrobatic style of fighting.

Letha carried a variety of weapons within her special leather belts and straps. She also carried a rope for help in scaling walls.

Bio:
Hellen Felliciano was a protégé of Ann " Auntie Freeze" Fraley, one of the leading female wrestlers of thirty years ago. Felliciano was trained by Fraley and wrestled under the alias of Letha. Eventually, under Fraley's management, Letha teamed up with three other female wrestlers that Fraley had trained to become the wrestling team known as the original Grapplers.

Letha remained a member of the Grapplers throughout their early career, even when the team began to dabble with criminal activities. With the Grapplers association with the Roxxon Oil Company, Letha was given special leather belts and straps with various weaponry stitched within them.

Letha followed the Grapplers throughout their criminal careers and returned with them to professional wrestling under the guidance of Auntie Freeze once again. At this point, Letha and the other Grapplers gained superhuman strength from the Power Broker, Inc. The four original members and Fraley's new female wrestlers were now collectively called the Grapplers and were legitimate professional wrestlers in the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation. The original Grapplers resented the newcomers to a certain extent, but were mostly pleased by now being able to earn money without having to resort to crime.

Shortly after losing a bout for leadership of the Grapplers to the newcomer Battleaxe, Titania was slain by the enigmatic Scourge, who was disguised as a woman wrestler named Goldengirl. Letha wanted to do something to avenge her friend's death. At the so-called Bar With No Name in Medina County, one of a of number of establishments serving a clientele of costumed criminals, Letha made contact with Gary Gilbert, who was once the original costumed criminal Firebrand. Gilbert was organizing a meeting of costumed criminals at the Bar to discuss strategies for dealing with Scourge, who had killed a large number of such criminals by that time. Letha attended the meeting, but despite Gilbert's security precautions, Scourge himself showed up disguised as a bartender and killed Letha, Gilbert, and all the other criminals present by shooting them with explosive bullets.

It was later revealed that at that time there was more than one Scourge operating under that name.
