The Sphinx was a former model who became jealous and paranoid and decided to decimate her competition by killing the most attractive women in the city. She left a calling card at each murder scene so that the public would know that it was the same killer in each case. If she could not gain America's love in her civilian identity, then she would gain its fearful respect. That way, when she began abducting women for ransom, the authorities would take her threats seriously.

Equipment and Abilities:  
The Sphinx was an extremely athletic woman and a talented assassin, skilled in knife fighting and knife throwing. She usually carried more than one knife with her. She was also an amazing acrobat, with a knack for getting in and out of buildings without being seen (she was even bold enough to kill a woman guarded by a half dozen police officers).  Minxy drove a super-powered roadster.
