Explanation of the conversion: Smasher is a pretty straight forward strong-woman.
History: Jennifer Wilson was born on December 9, 1972 in Racine, Wisconsin. After graduation, Jennifer married her high school sweetheart, Kevin Murphy. He seemed nice and she thought that was all that mattered. He was a football star, she was a cheerleader. It seemed perfect. It was a while before he started hitting Jennifer.
Kevin worked for his dad as an electrician, hated it, and he'd take his frustration out on her.
Jennifer thought having a child might help but when they had a daughter that they named Angelica it only seemed to make matters worse.
One day, it stopped hurting. Jennifer didn't know why. She thought she was
just blocking out the pain, that she was numb to it. It wasn't until later
that she realized that these were the first signs of dormant mutant powers
being triggered. It frustrated Kevin that she wasn't reacting the way she
used to. It wasn't as satisfying as it had been.
One day, in frustration, he tried to take it out on Angel. When Jennifer
tried to protect her child she hit him. His head exploded. The rest of
Jennifer's superpowers had kicked in.
There was a trial. A man known only as Grundy tried to pin a string of
murders on Jennifer that a vigilante supervillain known as Guillotine had
committed. Officer Dragon of the Chicago Police stood by her through the
ordeal. He found the real murderer and arrested her. The charges were
dropped against Jennifer and she was reunited with her daughter Angel (Savage Dragon: Sex & Violence #1-3).
A few months afterwards, following the failed Martian Invasion of Earth,
Dragon was recruited by the U.S. government to head up a superhuman strike
force to prevent other major catastrophes. Jennifer, code named Smasher,
accepted his offer to join the team, called Special Operations
Strikeforce. So adept at using her vast strength in physical combat, she
quickly sped her way through recruit training to become a core member of
On the team's first major mission, Smasher and Dragon were marooned on and
later escaped the doomed planet Darkworld, and on a several-month long
odessey found their way to a bizarre planet where they did battle with
mythological Gods. Eventually, Dragon and Smasher were returned to Earth
and to her daughter.
Dragon and Smasher then started dating and were married.
Smasher was believed killed, but the death was actually faked. She had been kidnapped by the Darklord and ended up being mentally controlled into serving him.
Powers: Jennifer is a mutant who possesses vast superhuman strength. She is capable of lifting (pressing) approximately 90 tons. She is very nearly impervious to flame. She has seemingly impenetrable skin, inhuman stamina and endurance, and an accelerated healing ability.
