Picked up the remaining DC Multiverse figures I needed from @fivebelow.
A note on the BAF, be VERY careful with the arms that come with Batwing. Out of the box, the shoulder joint/peg at the top is really stiff.
Either soak in hot water or use a blow dryer to get them moving before putting them into the body. Almost snapped one when I was putting it the figure together. Otherwise this is a really nice BAF. #dcmultiversefigures#dcmultiverse#dccomics
Atomica (Rhonda Pineda)
Hailing from Earth-3, Rhonda Pineda is the viciously sadistic girlfriend of Jonathan Allen, being a notorious child killer. Shortly after saving Jonathan from Leonard Snart and Mick Rory, they were hunted down by the Central City Police and cornered on the roof of STAR Labs.
Their lives would be changed after getting struck with lightning and Rhonda fell into a device used for size-changing experiments.
With the deadly ability to shrink and elude enemies, Atomica served as Johnny Quick's partner in crime, gleefully joining the Crime Syndicate. Though she would be stranded on Earth-0 before the Crime Syndicate could arrive due to the Anti-Monitor ravaging the universe.
Atomica learned of the Justice League and got into their good graces by defusing an Atlantean bomb during an attack by the Ocean Master and played both them and Amanda Waller's JLA strike force against each other.
This would all pay off when she, the Alfred Pennyworth of Earth-3 and Grid used Pandora's Box to open a portal to Earth-3, bringing the Crime Syndicate to Earth-0.
Now with her team, Atomica proved to be a particularly wicked and personal killer, but ineffective against the airtight armour of Black Manta. After being wounded and stuck with a damaged size altering belt, Atomica would be stepped on by Lex Luthor as payback for bringing the Crime Syndicate to his world, killing her.
POWERS: Atomica can shrink her body to the subatomic level, even managing to enter technology such as video games. She is also a skilled hacker, managing to bring the Grid to life and is a skilled manipulator.
WEAKNESSES: Atomica needs her size altering belt to return to normal size or she will be stuck at a tiny size, capable of getting crushed by Luthor's boots.
The Grid was first created when Cyborg realised that he could use his telecommunication powers to watch nearly every superhuman on Earth and created a secondary system to passively store and organise data on metahumans.
Unbeknownst to Cyborg, the system grew, developing into a neural network that retained certain flaws from hackers and viruses Cyborg encountered.
It was then given full sentience by Atomica uploading the Crime Syndicate's files into Cyborg, creating an "artificial evil" and was finally able to reveal itself when Atomica brought the Crime Syndicate to Earth-0.
Grid then took control of Cyborg's mechanical parts and left Victor a wounded mess on the floor as he joined the Crime Syndicate.
Grid acted as the data hub of the Crime Syndicate, serving them in the hopes that he could feel the one thing he lacked: emotion. He would eventually be stopped by a new and improved Cyborg, who shut down his body.
Yet unbeknownst to Cyborg, Grid once again entered his systems at the last second and was reactivated by Superwoman when the Anti-Monitor appeared on Earth-0. Grid would finally meet his end when he joined Owlman in trying to learn the secrets of the universe, only to be struck down by Dr Manhattan.
POWERS: Grid's body is made of Cyborg's prosthetics and as such, his physical capacity is above that of most humans. He is also capable of limited shape-shifting by manipulating his mechanical parts. Grid can also access Cyborg's weapon systems and control any technology that isn't protected against him specifically.
WEAKNESSES: Grid needs a body or else he is nothing more than a sentient computer virus. His obsession to feel emotions can serve as a restriction at times, stopping in missions to test if he will feel anything.
Deathstorm (Martin Stein)
Hailing from Earth-3, Professor Martin Stein was one of the foremost minds in the field of theoretical biology, though he used highly amoral and ghastly means of researching the nature of death.
Stein would often lure unsuspecting homeless people to his lab and use them as test subjects in his frequent tests to create life from death.
Enemies of the Crime Syndicate employed him to try and stop them, but he only used their resources to further his work and even experimented on himself with the corpse of Ronnie Raymond.
Now fused with Ronnie, Stein became the freakishly undead nuclear monstrosity known as Deathstorm, joining the Crime Syndicate, often being used by Ultraman in an effort to create Kryptonite and frequently begged by Power Ring to free him of the Ring Of Volthoom.
Deathstorm would meet his true demise after Superwoman strangled him to death with her Lasso of Submission.
POWERS: Deathstorm is a brilliant scientist, deeply intimate with biology and chemistry in particular. Similarly to Firestorm, he can transmute matter, fly and toss nuclear flames with the added ability of transmuting organic materials. Deathstorm can also absorb biological energy from people, draining their life force for his own regeneration.
WEAKNESSES: Deathstorm is unable to transmute items into alien materials as seen in his inability to create Kryptonite, much to Ultraman's disgust. Deathstorm is also vulnerable to mind control as seen in Superwoman's domination of him with her Lasso of Submission.
