Enhanced speed, stamina, agility, and reflexes, as well as superhuman durability.
Possession of advanced technology, allowing shape-shifting, and incorporating various weapons and armor systems.
The daughter of King Carelius, one of the last remaining kingdoms conquered by time-traveling despot Kang in the 40th century. Kang kept Carelius on as king, but only as a puppet for his own rule. Kang spared the kingdom, seeking Ravonna's hand in marriage. During a period of unrest, Ravonna acted to save Kang from assassination at the hands of his rebellious underling, General Baltag, and was killed in the process.
Kang would keep her for some time in a stasis tube. Later, the Grandmaster would resurrect her, and she would pose as a number of characters, calling herself Nebula, Kang Nebula, and the Temptress, before becoming the Terminatrix and seeking to destroy Kang.
In battle, Kang sacrificed himself to save Ravonna/Terminatrix, and was for a time kept in stasis himself, while she ruled his kingdom of Chronopolis. Later, the two would finally become lovers over various time periods, before Ravonna/Terminatrix was possibly slain during a siege by Immortus (yet another version of Kang).
Due to the nature of Kang/Immortus' time traveling and manipulation, many divergent alternate-history versions of Ravonna Lenslayer exist. Some of these versions, who never went through the experience of actually being killed and resurrected, later frown upon the actions of the "main" Terminatrix-version of Ravonna.
