Having been made an experimental cyborg after she was nearly killed in a Freakshow scheme, she is now on a crusade against gangs.
Mission Architect stories
Regina Love was born on 1988-06-24. During her high school years she was an average student, chubby and an outsider, and moving to Paragon City to attend college did not actually help. She finally became happy when she and fellow student Jimmy Clair Chan began dating in late 2006 – unfortunately, he did so only because he had lost a bet. Even worse, he decided to join the Freakshow.
In order to prove himself, Jimmy was to strike at a rival gang, the Warriors. He realized he could finally put his girlfriend to use, and had a naïve Regina deliver a package containing a bomb to a building used as a hideout by a group of Warriors. As soon as the door was open, a secretly watching Jimmy remotely triggered the bomb, and a group of Freaks appeared to go on with the assault.
When Regina awoke at a hospital, she was told that what was left of her was still hovering between life and death, and therefore agreed to have parts of her body replaced with cybernetics. This was actually an experiment at the behest of PPD officers, who were hoping to give their force superpowers and be less dependent on Heroes. In late January 2007, Regina was a combat machine ready to fight for the Paragon Police, but a disgruntled employee of the hospital publicly accused the officers of taking advantage of the poor girl who had already almost died through no fault of her own. While his claim that Regina was not of sound mind when she agreed to the treatment was never actually proven, the resulting controversy nevertheless allowed her to become an independent Hero instead.
Assuming the name Technobasher, she has been on a crusade against evil – particularly gangs – ever since. While she is sort of glad about her career, her ruthlessness toward the people who nearly killed her – or rather, what she considers their kind – has proven to be controversial as well.
In late February 2011, Technobasher was part of a Task Force against the Freakshow along with members of the - Rising Alliance Of Justice -, and has since been associated with the group.
Personality and Motivation
Becoming a cyborg has not necessarily made Regina more attractive and pretty much forced her to become a Hero; still, Regina is sort of glad about her fate – after all, her life finally has a purpose now. She does hate the Freakshow, and by extension all gangs, with a passion, and is fiercely determined to do what she can to eventually wipe them out.
Powers and Abilities
Don't let her exposed skin fool you: Technobasher is nearly invulnerable. While this was apparently the cyberneticists' primary goal, she is also capable of powerful blows thanks to superhuman strength. The reputation she enjoys by now (due to both her power and her ruthlessness) makes it easy for her to intimidate her opponents.
Despite her apparent weight, Technobasher is capable of high leaps, thanks to in-built thrusters. A more recent device allows her to teleport her comrades to her position.
