Avengers Identicard is the handiest tool this side of
a Swiss Army knife. Normally, it looks like a card with
an Avenger's picture and signature on it, like a souped-up
driver's license. But it does so much more.
First, the Identicard serves as a communications device.
Each card has a flat-screen monitor to send and receive
audio and video data. The Identicard can beep like a pager,
communicate like a videophone, and record like a mini-recorder;
it also has a virtually global range with satellite uplink.
The Identicard can even be used as a tracking device to
locate a missing Avenger via his or her card's unique
In addition, it can act as a small computer with a numerical
access pad. All by itself, this makes it an overpowered
calculator. But with appropriate access codes, it can contact
Avengers computers, which can then be operated with voice
commands. The Identicard also acts as an ignition key for
Avengers vehicles and as a key to Avengers bases.
cards are waterproof and can handle a lot of pressure, but
they're not indestructible, so heroes should avoid using
them indiscriminately to clean the exhaust ports on their
boot jets. Bad things can happen.
In fact, handy little do-all gizmos like the Identicard
can be notoriously unreliable at all the wrong times.
They can be scrambled by sun spots, jammed by Ultron's
electromagnetic leakage, invaded by nasty viruses, ionically
polarized in their cross-fibrillated vibranium gromulators,
well, you get the idea.
