Superboy Cosplay: Knockout (Molly McIsaac) Cosplay 05 SEP 2013

American cosplayer Molly McIsaac visits DC’s pantheon of supervillains for inspiration and then decides to go for a knockout with this awesome Knockout cosplay. Bam!

Knockout is a fictional character, a supervillainess in the DC Comics universe. She first appeared in Superboy vol. 2 #1 (February 1994), and was created by Karl Kesel and Tom Grummett.

Knockout is a former Female Fury from Apokolips. She first appeared shortly after Superboy moved to Hawaii. Using her superstrength, she fought and flirted with Superboy just for the fun of it. Her hidden identity was that of a super strong stripper who worked at a club called the BoomBoom Room.

Later, she was recruited to join Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad for an attack against the international crime cartel Silicon Dragons. She joined Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Sidearm and King Shark on the Suicide Squad. The Suicide Squad had to overcome betrayal and overwhelming enemies, and in the end, Knockout was supposedly killed when the Squad left her and King Shark in the exploding base.

She later returned alive, and assisted Superboy in a battle against Valor, although she and Superboy did spar. She turned up shortly thereafter and teamed up with Superboy in several of his adventures.

Knockout is a highly trained warrior and is also a master of hand-to-hand combat. She has superhuman strength, durability, and endurance. She also possesses a healing factor.
