(Hellstorm#14)-Walking down Riverside Drive and West 133rd Street, Jakita felt a targeting sweep evaluate her. She soon found herself confronted by "the Armorer", who sought to kill her and use her body parts for magical armor, as part of a plot to grant the demon Zahgurim control over all of the souls in Manhattan. She formed a shield, projected a blast, and planned to teleport to safety, but "the Armorer" shrugged off her attack and shredded her shield as if it were nothing. Fortunately, Hellstorm arrived in time to save her.

 

Comments: Created by Warren Ellis and Peter Gross.

Per Robert London:
"Doesn't the Ellis-written Planetary have a main character named "Jakita Wagner"? I doubt this is a coincidence: could the man create TWO characters named "Jakita" randomly?  I'd be interested in hearing whether that name holds some signifigance."--I personally don't know. Anyone have any info to share?
