"Carol," "Melinda," "Meredith," "Sherril," "Stephanie" (see comments)

Purpose: To impress upon Black Axe the urgency of his mission from Mys-Tech

Affiliations: Mys-Tech (employers)

Enemies: Black Axe, Emily Hall

Base of Operations: Unknown, presumably mobile

First Appearance: Black Axe#1 (April, 1993)

History: (Black Axe#1/Black Axe#2 (fb)) - After Mys-Tech contracted the retired immortal Black Axe to invade Hydra and kill a scientist named Mendel who thought he had discovered the genetic key to halting the aging process, they sent the Sisters of Grace to discover why Black Axe had failed in his mission. Black Axe responded with an energy blast from his axe, which "Carol" easily blocked. "Stephanie" ordered the others to fall back and then ordered Jessie to "capture the queen." Jessie leapt into action and grabbed Emily Hall, who had been aiding in Black Axe's recovery. "Meredith" grabbed Black Axe and the leader asked if Black Axe would now listen to them. "Sherril" explained that the Mys-Tech board only wished to be reassured that Black Axe had not abadoned his contract and that they hoped that their faith in him was justified. She then explained that the Sisters of Grace were commissioned to impress upon Black Axe the urgency of his assignment and then asked him if he was impressed.

 (Black Axe#3 (fb) - BTS) - The Sisters of Grace filed a report on Black Axe's powers and gave it to their Mys-Tech employers.

Comments: Created by Simon Jowett, Edmund Perryman, and Rod Ramos.

Jessie was the only Sister of Grace actually named. I gave the others names in quotations to distinguish them between one another in the history section. On a humorous note, they're all named after people I work with. -Proto-Man

"Carol" was the Sister of Grace who blocked Black Axe's axe attack.

She appeared to have superhuman durability as she took a blast from Black Axe's axe at nearly point blank without even breaking a sweat.

-- Black Axe#1


Jessie was the Sister of Grace who subdued Emily Hall during the Sisters' scuffle with Black Axe and also the only Sister of Grace mentioned by name.

Jessie had the superhuman power to convert her hands into razor-sharp weapons. She usually kept them in the form of elongated claws, but had been seen to alter the shape of the claws.

-- Black Axe#1


"Melinda" was a small Sister of Grace who mostly remained in the background during the scuffle between the Sisters and Black Axe.

She appeared at a small stature, which could be related to some sort of size-reducing ability, but then again, she could've just been a little person.

-- Black Axe#1


"Meredith" was the Sister of Grace who grabbed Black Axe while "Sherril" explained the reasons for the Sisters being there.

She appeared to be some sort of cyborg, with a vice-like hand.

-- Black Axe#1


"Sherril" was the Sister of Grace who explained their reasons for appearing before Black Axe.

She did not show signs of superhuman powers.

-- Black Axe#1


"Stephanie" was the apparent leader of the Sisters of Grace, as she spouted orders to the other Sisters.
