Meggan Puceanu / Gloriana

From Animated Muscle Women

Meggan Puceanu is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as a supporting character in stories featuring Captain Britain, and the X-Men. A mutant empath and shapeshifting elemental, she was created by writer Alan Moore and artist Alan Davis, and first appeared in Mighty World of Marvel #7 (December 1983), which was published in the United Kingdom by Marvel's British publication arm, Marvel UK. Her first appearance in an American Marvel publication was in New Mutants Annual (vol. 1) #2 (1986). She eventually chose the codename Gloriana, a name of victory coined by the demons of Hell.

Meggan is a powerful superhuman, an "empathic metamorph" or "elemental megamorph", with the apparent ability to assume virtually any superhuman power in existence at will. Her abilities include empathy, an elemental link to nature and mystical energies, and shapeshifting. One use of her powers is to increase the density of her muscle tissue to boost her strength and/or speed to superhuman levels.
