Ed's Notes: I'm not sure if Vi can make Shrinking look as cool at the MCU's Ant-Man did as a Power, but she kicks a lot of ass even without it. And question for the LoS fans... Did she always have a prosthetic eye and leg, or was this another example of 1993's trend of breaking Super Heroes in various ways?

2nd Edition omits her Acrobatics, Gadgetry, Military Science, Scientist and Thief skills and gives her a Martial Artist of only 5. It also rater her shrinking at just 15.

First Appearance: Action Comics #276 (May, 1961)


  1. The prosthetic eye and leg must have been done during that whole LSH reboot in the mid 90s. I quickly lost interest in the LSH during that time, so I'm not sure of the circumstances of how Vi received her prosthetics.

  2. The eye and leg were, as you guessed, part of the 1993 thing (though this version was published 89-94). When the Legion was rebooted in '94 (and the other three times since then), she was retconned back to whole.
