Sheryl Carlson is a mutant who has the ability to manipulate any straight male or gay female with her abilities. Sheryl's power manifests itself in several ways to create this ability. First, she emits a chemical which causes a submissive reaction in those exposed. Second, he emits radiation that causes an aura which seemingly invisible can actually be seen subliminally causing a hypnotic state. Finally, her voice emits a hidden sound that affects the brain.
Sheryl discovered this power early on and used it to get whatever she wanted. Within a matter of months after graduation, she became the most successful marketing and PR person in Orange City. However, after discovering the evils of one of her clients, Michael Bossman, and the role she played in helping him cover it up, she vowed to find a way to use her powers for good.
Taking a cue from a hero of the 1980s with a similar power, she took the name Pretty Gal, and became a hero, soon being recruited by Adam Rubinstein to join his new team, the Heroes of the People, a role she currently fills.
All of the Heroes of the People are based on friends of mine from my time on the UMass Mock Trial team. Their fictional counterparts have mostly taken names of classic Super Comics characters from the 1980s, putting a new modern spin on them.
