MODAM was empowered through artificial acceleration of her brain tissue growth by means of mutagenic chemicals and radiation, plus cybernetic implants. As a result, she possesses a superhuman intellect, and the ability to project psionic force for a number of effects, including: concussive energy, generation of heat, and protective fields. She also possesses limited telepathy and imposition of her will upon others. MODAM's headband contains equipment which aids her in the focusing of her psionic powers.
MODAM is permanently encased within an exo-skeletal shell of life-supporting machinery which augments her musculature, provides mobility, and performs various bodily functions. Sensors equipped throughout the exoskeleton monitor both her body's functions and the system's mechanical functions and transmit this data telemetrically to AIM headquarters. Thus they monitor both her blood sugar level and her rocket fuel level. MODAM is equipped with two telescoping tentacle-like arms within which her own arms fir. Each terminates in a pronged "hand". Maximum elongation of these arms is 15 feet. MODAM's "hover-chair" contains anti-gravity generators enabling it to hover and chemically fueled rocket boosters to propel it. MODAM's musculature is atrophied, while her head has been freakishly enlarged. Thus she is physically dependent on the exoskeleton provided by her hover-chair for physical support and movement. If any of the chair's systems malfunction or are disabled she would be extremely vulnerable.
MODAM, after being created in a lab at AIM headquarters, first had to retrieve the quantum bands of Quasar for AIM's client Doctor Minerva. MODAM failed at this mission, and was later assigned to retrieve Diamondback, Asp, Anaconda, and Black Mamba for another of AIM's clients, Superia. MODAM succeeded this time but Superia's plans were thwarted and MODAM was defeated by Captain America. Later when AIM Island was invaded by Captain America, The Falcon and Diamondback, MODAM failed to prevent former client Superia from destroying a Life Model Decoy of the ruler of AIM. This was MODAM's last recorded mission.
