Airborne is a supervillain in the Marvel Comics.
Fictional character biography
The origin of the Airborne, or how she got her armor, is yet to be revealed. Once she got it though, she was hired by a mysterious employer who wanted Tony Stark
, the armored Avenger
known as Iron Man
, dead. The Death Squad
managed to track Iron Man down at his main office, and a battle began. Though Airborne (and the rest of the Death Squad) gave Stark a good run for his money, they weren't able to defeat the super-hero. Airborne helped her teammates escape, and Stark was unable to follow them due to the damage on his jet-boots.
Later, the Death Squad decided to give the murder attempt another try. They murdered ionically-powered beings, at least enough people to get the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury informed Stark about this and he investigated the matter, with the track eventually leading toward the Death Squad, who were hiding out at the old castle of Count Nefaria. Nefaria himself was also revealed to be involved, and after Iron Man managed to defeat his old enemy, the Death Squad members, including Airborne, all managed to escape in the heat of the battle.
