ICTUS THE SHE-WOLF
Real Name: Ictus
Identity/Class: extra-terrestrial (unknown race)
Occupation: Destruction of Men (see comments)
Group Membership: None
Enemies: Interstel Church of Perpetual Annoyance, Lunatik, Skreet
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Panto-9, the homeworld of the Interstel Church of Perpetual Annoyance
First Appearance: Lunatik#3 (February, 1996)
Powers/Abilities: She was the personification of unbridled feminine ferocity. Ictus was invulnerable to bullets, lasers and many weapons. She could even resist the force of a near nuclear air strike. She possessed super-human strength (she could bend tank cannons and smash walls with her fists) and used everything around her as a weapon. She also possessed a gun which she was never seen using.
(Lunatik#3 (fb) - BTS) - Ictus attacked the homeworld of the ICPA and they had no clue how to stop her. And so the church hired help from the outside to do the job.
(Lunatik#3) - Ictus attacked the Kops who tried to stop her from getting into the capital. They failed miserably as well as the Kops Special Forces Squad, the regular army, the Harlequin Battle-Suits and the Armor Division. Ictus came closer and closer to the heart of the city and the Santa Marceau Cathedral, and not even a near nuclear air strike could stop her. General Incompetence finally saw that nothing on Panto-9 could stop Ictus when she took down one of his Three-Ring Heli-Strike Force after the near nuclear strike, and he retreated with the remaining two helictopers. Ictus entered the Cathedral and there she met Lunatik who was just running away from the Church High Council. Ictus thought he was afraid when he first saw her and threatened to kill him, but he wasn't and knocked her out with a hard punch. Ictus was defeated and the planet as well as the church was saved.
Comments: Created by Lovern Kindzierski & Duncan Roleau
I'm not sure if Ictus wanted to destroy the whole Interstel Church of Perpetual Annoyance (although I would understand this). She seemed to have a deep going hate against men and she possibly only wanted to destroy the male leadership of the church or all males alive.
The cover of Lunatik#3 showed Skreet struggling in Ictus' mouth, but this scene never happened in the issue itself.
Ictus is Latin and can be translated as several types of standard attacks that were used by Roman legionnaires (punch, stab, throw, etc.). But although the former seems appropriate as well I think that Ictus was in this story meant as an outburst of temper or other emotion which would be the psychologically meaning.
