Victoria Ngengi (aka Flint) is a fictional comic book character from Wildstorm, she is also a member of StormWatch. She's a product of StromWatch's short-lived Academy program, is the toughest being known to science.
Flint is Kenyan, and has survived much of the worst in Kenya's recent history. Her father and brother were killed in border skirmishes with Tanzania in the mid '70s, and her mother was murdered two years later. She thus was brought up as a ward of the State. Her increased strength was noticed early, and she was thought as a potential Olympic competitor for Kenya; a few years after, her Seedling powers began to emerge, and she was noticed by the UN.
When the superhuman members of the StormWatch agency were decimated during the Despot crisis, the UN found itself facing a severe shortage in metahuman manpower and hired or recruited various superhumans from all over the world. She eventually made it to full StormWatch operative status when the superhuman assets were reorganized; Flint was assigned to StormWatch Red. At this point, Bendix's madness was taking its toll. This affected Flint personally, as she was sent in by part of a small team to attack Kaizen Gamorra's island nation in response to a terrorist bomb that killed 223 innocent aircraft passengers and crew. Though Flint and teammate Fahrenheit's role was to destroy abandoned property, they had to watch as ally Rose Tattoo obeyed Bendix's orders to kill 223 Gammon citizens. Any citizens, man, woman or child. The organization eventually went into a crisis when the madness of Bendix became obvious. Jenny Sparks attacks Bendix and seemingly kills him; however he survives the encounter.
Powers and abilities Edit
Flint's skin is rock-hard, and she seems to be pretty much invulnerable (her skin is said to be the hardest thing known to science). Bullets affect her about as much as a stiff rain, and even a rocket can at most knock her back and damage her costume. Dropping her from a great height will result in a crater and an unfazed Flint. She does seem more vulnerable to energy weapons. Her skin can also be damaged by concentrated molecular acid, though it will not be destroyed completely and the scarring will repair itself given sufficient time.
Although she doesn't display extreme super-strength, her blows have impressive power - presumably a combination of her strength, speed and rock-hard hands. She can behead a normal man in a single punch, and has been known to kill bulletproof superhumans with a good rush-by punch to the jaw.
In recent years, Flint has displayed super-speed - she can do easy things faster than humanly possible (such as changing clothes), and is superhumanly good at catching projectiles in mid-flight. She is also very proficient at grabbing large objects and throwing them with great fluidity, power and accuracy.
She is able to create a brutal, vectorized shockwave by slamming her hands together - the resultant blast of pressurized air was enough to break the back of a cybernetic-ally enhanced man.
