Identity/Class: Human athlete

Group Membership: Superia's Femizons
Affiliations: Employee of Damon Dran, ally of Kono Sanada
Enemies: Captain America, Diamondback (Rachel Leighton)
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: New Orleans, Louisiana
First Appearance: Captain America I#389 (August, 1991)
Powers: None. Golddigger is an athletic and skilled fighter, trained in the martial arts. She uses her feminine whiles to catch male attackers off guard. She is more useful in sneak attacks than in direct conflicts, although her strength and training would allow her to overcome those less trained in hand-to-hand combat. Diamondback took her out while fighting off a gas attack.
History: Golddigger was first observed as one of the costumed female criminals summoned to Superia's island as part of her plot to form an army of allies and sterilize the rest of the world. Golddigger fought Captain America and his allies there, but left when Superia's plot was defeated by them. Shortly thereafter, she was at a bar when Asp and Black Mamba began their search for Snapdragon. She was among those who attacked them for their interference with Superia's plans.
Golddigger was contacted by a bartender in New Orleans, when Diamondback and Zachary Moonhunter arrived and began questioning the whereabouts of Snapdragon. She pretended to offer them a lead to her, but then gassed them and brought them before her employer, Damon Dran. She encountered several of the other vigilante's investigating Dran's child-slavery ring, including Captain America and Americop, before attempting to flee aboard Dran's helicopter. She was climbing up its ladder when it was shot down and exploded by Americop.
Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald.
Golddigger was only a short distance off the ground when the helicopter exploded, so I see no reason to count her among the dead, especially since she's neither Bucky (not anymore) nor Ben Parker (the only characters who ever died for good).
I thought Golddigger was the sister of Snapdragon, but didn't see mention of it in re-reading Cap 428-430. She doesn't look Japanese, so I left it out. Anyone? Bueller?
