Fictional character biography
Becoming a professional wrestler shortly after her youth, Robin Braxton has been fighting for her life ever since. She gained her current enhanced strength through an augmentation given by Power Broker INC. Shortly afterward she abandoned her life as a wrestler and became part of the Grapplers.
They were forced to restrain Titania, who had just lost a battle from Battleaxe. When the Grapplers came face to face with the Thing, Gladiatrix decided to remain on the good side and helped him out, saving the day. Later, Gladiatrix tried out for membership in the Avengers, but was denied after she almost got into a battle with Ursa Major.
She agreed to join Superia's
Femizonsafterward, becoming a supervillain once more. She was attacked by Captain Americaand Paladin, whom Gladiatrix manages to capture. The heroes eventually rescued themselves and defeated Gladiatrix afterwards. Since then, Gladiatrix only sporadically appeared as a supervillain, but has remained in comic "limbo" for the better part of her career.
However, during the Civil War event, Gladiatrix chose the side of the heroes once more and became involved with a gang that was strongly against the Super-Hero Registration Act. Her allies include, but are not limited to, Solo, Typeface and
Battlestar. She is apprehended when a S.H.I.E.L.D.squad enters their hideout. She almost escapes, being responsible for the visiting journalist Sally Floyd. Debris knocks her down and Sally escapes on her own. She is later seen in the Negative ZonePrison, being contained in some virtual reality apparatus, begging for someone to help her. She, along with the other captive heroes were freed by Hulkling. ["Civil War" #6] The people he freed assisted Captain America in their fight against the Pro-Registration forces. She accepted the offer of amnesty. ["Civil War: Battle Damage Report"]
