Day 26: Part 4: Last post of the night. May is #AsianHeritageMonth so every day I will be showcasing an #asiansuperhero or super villain. Now that I am coming up on the last five days and there are a couple more characters I want to spotlight I will do at minimum three per day in these last few days of the month. This is #HisakoIchiki aka Armor of the #XMen from #MarvelComics created by #JossWhedon and #JohnCassaday in 2004.
Hisako Ichiki is a young girl whose greatest aspiration is one day to be an #XMan. Along with her friend and fellow student Wing, Hisako is attacked in the halls of the #XavierInstitute by the alien villain Ord of the Breakworld. Hisako and Wing attempt to oppose Ord, but are overpowered. While both teenagers survive the attack, Wing discovers that he has been injected with a "cure" for his mutant ability of flight. Despondent, he commits suicide after some goading from a Danger Room hologram of her. In the wake of this tragedy, Hisako, her teacher #KittyPryde, and several Xavier students find themselves trapped in a sentient and hostile Danger Room with Wing's reanimated corpse. Danger, as the intelligence is named by the X-Men, eventually leaves the Institute.
When #MDay hit, she was one of 27 students to retain their powers. She participated in #EmmaFrost's Battle Royale which determined who will train to be an X-Man.
Hisako can create and generate an enormously strong and impenetrable dark red-colored psionic exoskeleton body armor that grants her superhuman strength, reflexes, stamina, endurance, agility, dexterity, and durability. The body armor is depicted as enveloping her completely and protects her from tremendously strong and powerful attacks and greatly strengthens and amplifies the concussive force behind her unusually offensive and highly destructive blows.
