The rules are:
1. Post all rules
2. Write 8 facts about your character
3. Tag 8 people -- NO.
4. Write the name of the character with its owner.
1) As should be no surprise, Steel Fox is the Supergirl to Steel Wolf's Superman.
2) Her real-life origin stems back to when my own cousin would be visiting, and want to join in on our Marvel RPG games. She wanted to have a character like mine, and also be his cousin in-game, so this is the result.
3) Her name wasn't originally Steel Fox. When she was first created, Amanda (my cousin) called her "Firebird". That lasted for awhile, but then she decided she wanted to more closely emulate my guy so she changed the name to Steel Fox.
4) I actually like Power Girl much more than Supergirl, so when I redesigned her costume back in '97, I chose to emulate that design and colorscheme. You can see my original drawing of her in this located here...
5) Despite being an obvious Supergirl riff, her origin actually tracks closer to that of the Carol Danvers Ms. Marvel.
6) While Steel Fox started out Russian in our games, I've since changed her to an American relative of Alexi's on his biological father's side. They're still first cousins, just not from the same country. Hence the elimination of any Russian/Soviet symbology from her costume these days.
7) Of all the costumes I've designed over the years, this remains one of my top favorites.
8) Steel Fox has not appeared in any medium or commissions with her cousin. That needs to change.
