The official Mutants & Masterminds boards
Chris grew up in a dimension very different from Earth’s: the crustal surface (atmosphere, land, water, underneath) is the extent of the universe, and is endless and folds and loops. There is also a much closer connection between the inhabitants’ equivalent of a mind/soul/spirit and matter, though most can’t do anything with the connection the same way someone paralyzed can’t will their body to move by mind alone. Chris, however, was caught in a mine explosion while foolishly investigating some suspicious people who turned out to be digging for illegal materials. The explosion embedded whole crystals, of a special type made from the interconnecting energy of all things, into her skin, giving her super powers. With these powers she joined her local equivalent of an AEGIS-sponsored super-group.
Chris is hyper-curious, so Doc Hazard barely had to ask before she jumped at the chance to explore a whole new dimension (her handlers were also glad to be rid of such a hyper-nosey agent for a while). Unfortunately in her haste she forgot to ask any question about the alternate dimension, with the result being she got stumped by the whole “planet” concept and has been lost the last few months.
Everyone Magnet: For some reason the crystals enhance the opinion people have of Chris’s looks. Most of the time this is just make them take notice of her (she’s not all that noticeable on her own), but occasionally, often with the worst possible people, it drives them to distraction and obsession.
Frog Out of Water: Chris’s home was rather like anime Japan (and other nearby places could get downright weird), so she doesn’t founder as much as expected. Still between different pop-cultures and the whole “we don’t have outer space where I come from” some stuff will just stump her.
Hyper-Curious: Chris has an urge to take a closer look at everything and figure out what stuff does. Normally she can control it, but sometimes something comes along that she just can’t resist investigating despite how obviously not a good idea it is.

That is part of the inspiration. Actually this is based on a storyarc from New Mutants where there was an army base in Limbo called Project Purgatory, where the nine mutant babies from the inferno story were sent and grew up to be mutated super soldiers.

Seriously what else did this guy have done during his term? Brain-washing machine powered by throwing kittens into a furnace? A tank that shoots puppies with bombs strapped to them?
