History: Blanche Sitznski was selected by executives in the Roxxon Oil Company to be a special agent in covert operations. At the Mutagenics Laboratory of Roxxon's now-defunct subsidiary, the Brand Croporation, Sitznski was bioengineered to have various permanent serpentine adaptations. Her first mission, as part of the new Serpent Squad, was to retrieve the ancient power object called the Serpent Crown for Roxxon president Hugh Jones. Following this mission, Anaconda and two of her fellow Serpent Squad cohorts left Roxxon to become mercenaries for hire. Recently, Anaconda was invited to join the Serpent Society by her former associate Sidewinder. After some persuasion, she accepted and has been an active member ever since.

Height: 6 ft. 2 in.
Weight: 220 lbs.
Eyes: Green
Hair: Blonde
Unusual Features: Anaconda has scales on her face, neck, and chest, and small fins on her cheeks.

Strength Level: Anaconda possesses superhuman strength enabling her to lift (press) approximately 2 tons on land under optimal conditios. Using her strength to constrict rather than lift, Anaconda has a grip that cannot be broken by those whose strength exceed her own by factors up to 30.

Known Superhuman Powers: Anaconda possesses the ability to elongate her limbs, entwine them around persons or objects, and constrict. The entire skeletal structure of her arms and legs has been replaced by artificial Adamantium alloy-based bones in the basic configuraton of a snake's bodily skeleton. Her arms, normally 24 inches from armpit to wrist, and her leg, normally 35 inches from hipbone to ankle, are able to elongate to about one and a half times their normal length. When she extends her limbs in this fashion, the muscle tissue gorges with blood, swelling the limbs so that each looks like a massive, powerful snake. These four constricting limbs are capable of exerting enough pressure to radically deform a one inch-thick steel tube, two feet in diameter. Once Anaconda has fully entwined her serentine limbs around a human-sized foe, there are few human beings able to get sufficient strength to break her grip.

Anaconda has been surgically given artificial gills to enable her to extract oxygen from water in order to breath. She can now breath while underwater indefinitely, as well as breath on land. As a by-product of the extensive bio-engineering done to her body, Anaconda possesses superhuman recuperative abilities. Her body can heal from ant non-fatal wound many times faster than a normal human beings.
