Real Name: Presumably Alice (surname unrevealed)
Identity/Class: Alternate reality/extratemporal (Earth-8410,
circa 2020 AD) human;
presumptive criminal record in the USA
Occupation: Professional criminal
Group Membership: None known
Affiliations: "Rabid" Elo Rogan (apparent on-and-off lover +/- partner in crime)
Enemies: Death's Head (Freelance Peacekeeping Authority), presumably other unidentified victims
Known Relatives: None
Aliases: None (beyond "Acid")
Base of Operations: New York, USA, Earth-8410
First Appearance: Strip#14 (August 18, 1990)
Powers/Abilities: Alice had no superhuman powers, and demonstrated no advanced skills in her limited three pages of appearances. She presumably has some degree of fighting and fleeing abilities, and possibly other skills to fit her crimes, which given her involvement with Rogan, may include theft and some more violent crimes).
Height: Unrevealed (she appeared fairly close in height
to the two male police officers, so maybe she was 5'8" or 5'9"?)
Weight: Unrevealed (based on the above estimation, I'd put her at 135 lbs.)
Hair: Black (apparently with some sort of glittery beads?)
(Strip#13 (fb) - BTS) - Alice apparently had an on-again, off-again relationship with Rabid "Elo" Rogan, who apparently also sometimes (or at least once!) served as her partner in crime.
(Strip#14 (fb) - BTS) - Alice and Elo apparently parted on a bad note.
(Strip#14) - Having seemingly from freelance peacekeeping agent Death's Head, Rogan plotted vengeance, but first planned to find a safe place to hole up, and headed towards Acid Alice's place, hoping she might even be pleased to see him after all this time. However, Death's Head yanked Rogan off the sky platform, causing both to tumble to the ground a short distance below. Hearing the commotion, Acid Alice emerged and ran towards Rogan. Unaware of their pre-existing relationship, Death Head feared Rogan was going to take the woma hostage, and he became concerned that if innocent bystanders started getting killed that the local law would get heavy with him, which would further drag out his efforts to bring in Rogan. Having preferred to bring in Rogan alive, Death's Head decided alive was still acceptable, and he fired his wrist-blaster attachment through Logan's back and out his chest, causing him to fall dead into a distraught Alice's arms.
Death's Head tried to calm Alice, assuring her Rogan was dead and couldn't harm her, but she called him a "sick, twisted bastard" and accused him of hunting Rogan for sport, like an animal. "You deserve to die--not him!" Death's Head knew Rogan was a dangerous criminal who needed to be stopped, but he was seriously concerned that she was right that he wasn't the professional he considered himself to be. A pair of police officers then grabbed Alice, and they were very pleased to have found not only Rabid Rogan permanently stopped, but also his "one-time accomplice," Acid Alice. Presumably still speaking to Death's Head, Alice said, "I'll rip out your entrails and feed 'em to you, whoreson!" One of the police officers ordered the other to gag her, and noted the "bounty hunter" should be proud of himself for a good day's work.
Comments: Created by Simon Furman and Geoff Senior.
The Strip serial started and then finished during the weeks just before it was collected in Death's Head: The Body in Question. HIGHLY recommended...in either form...awesome character and a cool story.
2020 AD just isn't that far away anymore, is it? As a quick primer, this reality was one in which the heroic age occurred in the mid-eighties, with the 2020 time period meant to be some 35 years later. It is the native reality of Iron Man 2020 (Arno Stark), Wild Thing (Nikki Doyle), etc.
An obvious pick for a last name, to me anyway, would be Lavin.
I figured Alice might somehow be involved in a revenge attempt later in the Strip series, but she was apparently just part of the plot device to make Death's Head question whether he was truly a professional, or whether he was doing things for sport...which was important in the conflict with Lupex.
