Aquamaria was a Bang Baby.
As part of her initiation into the Meta-Breed, Aquamaria had to rob the Dakota Downs race track. Though she got rid of the security easily, her second test—Static—soon arrived on the scene. After a brief fight, Aquamaria managed to short out Static. She did not count on Rubberband Man joining the young superhero. The shapeshifter managed to form a balloon around her. The compression and violent movement knocked her unconscious. She was taken into custody by the Metahuman Containment Division.
She was broken out, along with Shiv and Talon, when Ebon disguised himself as his brother Rubberband Man. It was part of Ebon's plan to welcome his brother in his crew. Aquamaria cheered him on. Static arrived and revealed the plot to Rubberband Man. The two fought off the Meta-Breed, and Static ran a current through Aquamaria. She was knocked unconscious and taken to prison again.
Powers and abilities
Aquamaria possessed water-based powers; her body became water and she could flow through cracks, around opponents, and generate smaller quantities of extra water to blast enemies with. Additionally, she could control or absorb existing water to gain mass or create sudden floods and waves.
In Milestone Comics, Aquamaria was a Bang baby of varying affiliation. Maria was Marta's best friend, and hit by Quantum Juice as she was swimming in the river. She has fought on both sides of the law since.
