    Default Phantom Lady: Powers Or Tools?

    Do you prefer Phantom Lady's abilities be a result of super powers or tools she uses?

    I personally prefer equipment though it be only allowed to turn her invisible and intangible

    I don't really care as long as they pick one and then stick with it for at least 20 years.

    Tools. Her black light ray is a classic device. I also prefer her with goggles that allow her to see within her black light.

    Tools. Not everyone needs to have super powers to be a badass.

    Alternatively, if she has powers, they can be a result of her experimenting on herself. Say Stormy is inspired by the legend of the original Phantom Lady and grants herself superpowers

    Hmm. I am not sure. I like her ability to "Phantom Out" which is better as a true power. But I also like the Black Light and goggles to see in the darkness, which I feel is better as a gadget (tool).

    Maybe a combo if both? That's how I always thought of Phantom Lady.

    That could work too. Kind of like how Spider-Man does have powers but still relies on equipment

    I believe the likes of Green Lantern and Iron Man prove that to be false.

    What do those two have to do with this?

    Thanks. One can have both powers and equipment. Like Spidey as you mentioned or the Black Widow.

    Well, I would guess that it's because Green Lantern and Iron Man gain their abilities from devices (a ring / a suit of armor) rather than having actual super powers that are a part of their biological makeup.
    (Though, granted, these days Iron Man seems to have internalized his armor, though I also assume it could still be surgically separated from him.)

    Exactly. Both Green Lantern and Iron Man get their abilities from devices instead of having actual super-powers.

    Besides her training in Karate, Judo, Akido, Savate and Boxing, Natasha had all the Red Room Training in shooting, espionage, ways to kill a person, etc.

    Then the retcon gave her a Russian variant of the American Super-Soldier formula. So while not Captain America, Nat can still bench 500 pounds, with increased speed, agility and stamina. She also ages slowly.
