Villains and Blackguards Incorporated #2: Moxie

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

Moxie's real name is Meribeth Willy the daughter of rich hippies.  She always hated her parents, so when her powers appeared at the young age of 14 she ran away for the life of a bad girl.  Despite a lack of experience or mentorship she excelled at petty theft.  In no time she acquired enough money and street cred to join the VABI youth corp.  Using the VABI she got in contact with high tech black tech equipment suppliers and got herself an Inertial Displacement Suit and has turned to bigger crimes.

Moxie's power is she has spurts of super speed and corresponding hand eye coordination.  These spurts last depending on how well rested she is and other factors of health.  The longest has been five minutes long.  During these periods she can run five hundred miles per hour and has reflexes to match.  The Inertial Displacement Suit (IDS) allows her to stop instantly and change direction almost instantaneously.  This allows her to go through a crowd of people as if they were statues.

Moxie's crimes are all along the lines of a snatch and grab.  She gets close to the target pretending to be a civilian and then uses a spurt to run to the target, steal it, and run to either a get away vehicle or a hiding place.  If chased by superheroes Moxie will play a game of hide and seek using her spurts to go from one place of hiding to another.  If pressed a kick from someone who can run five hundred miles an hour is nothing to sneeze at.  In the VABI she has a good reputation.  In the Youth Corp she's well liked and considered "not weird."  A person others can confide in.  She sends some of her stolen money back to her parents as a way to tell them she never needed them.
