Character Info

A world (possibly galaxy) famous adventurer and hero with the power to turn herself and those around her invisible; and the ability to project invisible force fields both defensively and offensively. She is the CEO of Fantastic Four Inc, and has been an active hero for decades, albeit more of the 'misadventure' and 'world-threat-defense' sort, rather than a patrolling crime fighter. She was something of a poster girl for superheroines, being one of the first, and certainly the post public in her day. She is a mother of two.

The Invisible Mom:
Though once lacking in confidence, Susan has proven herself a courageous and competent adventurer, made moreso with decades of experience under her belt. Though time and experience has beaten a lot of the softness out of her, she comes off as warm, gentle, good humored, and a bit cute. Under the surface, however, threats to her world, her family, and especially her children can dig up a fierce, cold, and borderline merciless side of her personality that can put the fear of god into powerful killers. Those who try to take advantage of her quickly find she has no patience for their antics, and often regret the effort.

She is ultimately a kind soul and a doting mother, however, and time has done little to wear down her zest for life, love of discovery, and adoration of her family.

Reed could probably stand to get a little less wrapped up in science sometimes, though.

Force Field:
With effort, Susan can project invisible force fields whose shape and purpose are limited largely by her imagination. She can shape them into objects and blast them at others; throwing anything from a wall to a brick, to conical spikes at her enemies. She can erect barrier to protect herself and others, but the more force impacts the shield, the greater toll it takes on Susan before she must drop it. She can mitigate this by erecting dense layers of forcefield, but the larger and denser she makes an object - and the longer she tries to sustain in - the more Susan physically exhausts herself to the point of possibly fainting.

The objects are also... invisible, so it takes some trust and imagination to get a technique right.

It's also possibly for her to levitate herself in the air by erecting and raising an invisible platform beneath her, though it must always be making contact with the ground. By constantly shifting and recreating this platform, she can effectively imitate limited flight; albeit with great concentration and difficulty.

Susan can render herself completely invisible to the naked eye, and is capable of rendering other people and objects around her invisible within a certain range. She is still capable of seeing things she herself has turned invisible, however, albeit she sees them in muted colors. She is also capable of turn invisible objects visible within a certain range; though it's a more difficult effort.

Though her education wasn't formally finished, Susan is a natural in regards to the operating of a business, PR, and branding. Albeit she's constructed Fantastic Four Incorporated to the point where she is no longer needed for most of the arduous day-to-day, but now that her children have grown she's dipping further back into it.

Susan has picked up some elementary self-defense skills in terms of close quarters - and has a surprisingly effective right hook! - but she's no ninja. That said, she's capable of being an absolute terror with her powers.

Fantastic Four:
Susan is a member of the Fantastic Four, and can reliably call on its members and their resources - including the wide variety of technological wonders at their disposal - to aid her if need be.

Between Reed's inventions, and Susan's business acumen, the Richards family and associates have become very wealthy; and while a lot of it gets put back into Reed's research, it's a resource that can usually be drawn upon when needed.

Susan isn't getting any younger and while she isn't using a walker just yet, she's never gonna be any more physically capable than she is right now. What affect that may ultimately have on her powers is yet unclear.

Public Identity:
Susan's idea is public, and for the most part so is her address. While it is, perhaps, one of the most well defended places in New York, it doesn't remove the target on her back that has only grown over decades of defending earth from threats local, extraterrestrial, and extradimensional.
