Powers/Abilities: Dana Bradley was a normal human female who had been transformed into an ultra with the ability to fly; this was derived from her newfound telekinetic powers.

Somewhat manipulative and slightly selfish, she also had light brown hair and had a smoking habit.

History:

Dana Bradley seeks help

(Firearm#7 (fb) - BTS) - Holidaying in San Francisco with her family, Dana was involved in the tram accident that transformed various humans into ultras. After gaining her telekinetic powers from this event, she became increasingly violent and mentally abusive to her husband, Jeffrey. Concerned for their daughter, he escaped, taking the child with him.

(Firearm#16 (fb) - BTS) - Undertaking a huge sweep of the USA, over 300 ultras were pinpointed for Mosely and marked for death, including Dana Bradley. Hired by Mosely, Rafferty began formulating plans to kill these ultras, starting with the lesser ones first to hone his ultra-killing skills.

(Firearm#7) - Dana Bradley hired the private investigator Firearm to track down her ex-husband in an effort to gain her daughter back. She lied to Swan that it was Jeffrey who had become violent. Firearm then began to track him down.

(Firearm#7 (fb) - BTS) - Dana Bradley hired three hoods to attack Firearm so that he would think that it was Jeffrey using them to intimidate Swan.

(Firearm#7) - Firearm tracked Jeffrey down and found him at the top of the Seattle Space Needle with his daughter. Jeffrey explained the real situation to the detective just as the enraged Dana attacked, hovering in mid-air, smashing apart the window to reach her daughter and confront her husband. Firearm leveled his gun at Dana but she knocked it back telekinetically. She tried to kill her ex-husband, but Swan jumped at her, telling Jeffrey to leave with the child. They fell over the edge and Dana was able to break free, hovering in mid-air before him as he dangled upside down, only a loose cable holding him. Dana then flew off out of sight.

  Later, Swan momentarily thought he saw Dana Bradley flying outside the window of the jet he was in, glad for her change of heart in Seattle in letting him live. He hoped to someday learn more about why she flew off rather than take her daughter away with her.

(Firearm#12) - At an unspecified diner, Dana Bradley sat and smoked while holding a teapot and cup telekinetically aloft as she poured. Lost in her thoughts, the window next to her exploded as an arrow fired by Rafferty, the ultra-killer, pierced her skull, instantly killing her.

Comments: Created by James Robinson (writer), Kirk Van Wormer (pencils) and Tim Roddick (inks).

In line with all the other ultra murders of Rafferty's killing spree, her death was likely carried out somewhere in the USA.

Jeffrey Bradley

Married to Dana Bradley, Jeffrey Bradley was physically and mentally abused by Dana after she gained her ultra powers. Concerned for their daughter's welfare, he escaped with her but was tracked down by Firearm. He was confronted by his enraged wife atop Seattle's Space Needle but she opted to fly away before she could hurt him anymore. He later thanked Swan for his help and went back to being on the run.

Stacey Bradley

Stacey Bradley

Stacey Bradley was the young daughter of Dana and Jeffrey. She was taken away from Dana by her father when the new ultra became increasingly angry and violent, but called her mother from a motel while they were on the run, alerting her to their location. Both parents were highly protective of her with Dana ready to kill to keep the child with her. However, the child pleaded with her mother not to kill her father and, at the last moment, she recanted and left the child with her father.

The $100 hoods attack Swan

"Hundred Dollar Hoods"

Dana Bradley hired several hoods for $100 each to attack Firearm so that he would believe her story that her husband was violent and dangerous. They were not very good fighters and relied on weapons like baseball bats when tackling Firearm, but the private detective easily overpowered the hoods and asked who had hired them, although they lied, saying it was Jeffrey, and they told Swan of the motel Jeff was staying at. None of them were named.
