Larger use of her powers lets out a sound similar to a canon firing
Can overheat if left using powers for too long
Largely enhanced metabolism, healing, and strength

Has a REALLY tough time w/ power control when sick, drowsy, delirious, having a panic attack, or overheated

June 4th, Gemini
Currently in high school
Has had a normal education otherwise
Taken from her parents at age 1.
Raised in facility until age 8.
Trained to fight + experimented on in facility.
Early experiments made her fireproof and gave cold resistance, enhanced strength, and enhanced metabolism.
Others were kept in facility w/ her, many did not survive experiments, there was a group of 11 survivors before “the incident”.
“The incident” occurs at age 8; facility began experimenting w/ a new power source, Minnie’s main powers were not intended to be given. Minnie wakes from a nightmare and goes off for the first time, completely destroying the facility. Wakes up the next day on the outskirts of a public park w/ no memories of who she is beyond the name “Minerva Anne”.
Brought into CPS by a stranger, placed in foster care system. Passed between three different homes, in the third one when story begins.
Becomes criminal (codename; Gunpowder) out of desperation when her foster family doesn't feed her enough for her enhanced metabolism.
Taken in by Cap. Halo when he's sent to capture Gunpowder (he makes a different call after learning of Minnie's situation).
Trains w/ Cap. and becomes the hero "Firework" while trying to redeem herself.
Eventually forms the Terra Legion w/ Cap. Halo, Lynx, Paradox, and Makeshift.
Falls for Sage (Lynx) real quick, doesn't know how to tell her.
Minnie: In short; wear comfortable shoes, square your shoulders, and walk like you've been sent to murder Captain America.
Sage: Why in the name of aLL FUCKS-
Minnie: They may be idiots but-
Random citizen: My life is in the hands of an idiot??
Minnie: Nonononono- fOUr idiots.
Minnie: Oh! I have a Brita filter!
Sage: No, WE have a Brita filter- dO NOT PEE IN OUR BRITA FILTER, MINNIE
Reese: We need to talk about your immaturity.
Minnie, having just shoved Ethan off of the couch: Bold words for someone who's standing in lava
Ethan: Now for some witty back-and-forth banter! You go first!
Minnie: (incoherent violent screaming)
Minnie: We did it… we won!
(Villain of the week slowly stands back up)
Sage: (Starts to point)
Minnie: NO. We won. I am NOT turning around and looking at it. WE. WON.
Sage: Are you holding my hand?
Minnie: That was an accident.
Sage: …You're still holding my hand Mina-
Minnie: It's still an accident.
Arthur trying his best to train the gremlins: Ok, one last time! Simultaneous alien attack and tornado; what do you do?
Minnie: Call the Terra Leg-
Arthur: yOU ARE THE TERRA LEGION
Reese: If the rest of the team jumped off a bridge, woul-
Minnie: Dear Santa;
Minnie: I'm writing to let you know that I've been naughty.
Minnie: aND IT WAS FRICKIN WORTH IT, YOU JUDGEMENTAL BASTARD
Minnie: (Bursts into the room and starts packing a suitcase)
Sage: Woah, what happened?
Minnie: Calm down, no one died.
Sage: WHAT KIND OF ANSWER IS THAT-
(On a call w/ Arthur)
Minnie: Seriously, I really appreciate the new suit.
Arthur: It's no problem, kid. But shouldn't you be getting to your club-thing?
Minnie: Oh, right! Bye, love you-
Arthur: Love you too.
Minnie: (Crashes through window) dAD
Minnie: Sure, I don't really get a healthy amount of sleep like SOME PEOPLE do, but can they do tHIS (Stands up, blacks out for a second)
Minnie: Whenever I see a frog on a lilypad I'm like yeah man… that's exactly where you're supposed to be
Sage: When you said 'magical in bed', this wasn't really what I-
Minnie: (pulling a playing card out of her sleeve) Is THIS your card?
Sage: Oh my god
Ethan: The sexual tension between two gas stations on the same intersection though-
Sage: I am so sick of this shit. Two gas stations can't even be on the same block without some walnut shipping them, but I can't find a single fic for Denny's/Applebees with Denny's bottoming.
Minnie: You're literally out of you mind if you think Denny's isn't a top.
Reese: You all make me want to walk into the ocean and never return.

Minnie: EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF
Ethan: IT'S A MENTAL BREAKDOWN!

Sage: It's called dumbass disease.
Minnie: (in the backround) No, I don't need a parachute-
Sage: And it's incurable.
Ethan: Are you a top or a bottom?
Minnie: I'm a threat.
Sage: (from the doorway) She's a bottom.
Reese: There were two snipers up ahead, but I took care of them.
Ethan: Really? Wow, I didn't hear you at all.
Reese: Hey, that's the first rule of battle; don't ever let the enemy know where you are.
Minnie: (in the backround) WOOOO! (explosion sounds) I'M RIGHT HERE YA BASTARDS, RIGHT OVER HERE!! YOU WANT SOME O' THIS?? YEAH YOU DO!! C'MON-
