Powers and Abilities


The Super-Soldier Serum metabolized and enhanced all of James Barnes and Margaret Carter's bodily functions to the peak of human potential. Dr. Reinstein described this potential as being "the next step in human evolution", while still remaining completely human. The two passed on this physical enhancement in full force to their son, Steven Barnes. Then Steven Barnes, who married a normal woman, only passed on partial enhancements to his daughter, Sharon. Therefore, Sharon is automatically at peak human physical perfection.

  • Enhanced Physiology:
  • Peak Human Strength: Her physical strength is heightened to a level that is beyond the natural physical limits of a woman of her height, weight and build. She is capable of lifting up to 500 lbs.
  • Peak Human Speed: She can run at speeds of up to approximately 30 miles per hour, and had on occasion run a mile in little over a minute (almost 60 mph) when under duress.
  • Peak Human Stamina: Her body eliminates the excessive build-up of fatigue-producing poisons in hr muscles, granting hr exceptional endurance. She could exert herself at peak capacity for several hours without rest before showing any signs of fatigue.
  • Peak Human Agility: Sharon's agility was superior to that of typical Olympic athletes.
  • Peak Human Reflexes: Sharon's reflexes are superior to that of typical Olympic athletes. Like most of her powers, her reflexes bordered on superhuman levels as she had dodged a bullet fired at point blank range claiming that she "could see faster than it."
  • Peak Human Durability: Sharon's ability to withstand injury is superior to those of ordinary humans. This explained how she had survived the physical punishment endured throughout her career, such as building falls and explosions.
  • Peak Human Metabolism: Her enhanced metabolism, bloodstream, and immune system allow her to heal from injuries or diseases faster than most humans. However, Sharon is still subject to all conventional human ailments, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities, though her immunity to most diseases was quite extraordinary. Sharon has stated she cannot become drunk and has never been sick as long as she can remember.
  • Peak Human Mental Process: Sharon's mental performance has been greatly enhanced, allowing her mind to operate in the most efficient and rapid manner possible. One manifestation of this was her tactical genius; the ability to quickly process multiple information streams (e.g., threat assessment) and rapidly respond to changing tactical situations. Sharon also possesses a near-edictic memory, meaning that she never forgot anything and had perfect recall. This enabled her to remember any military tactic and apply it to any situation.
  • Peak Human Perception: Sharon has exceptionally keen eyesight, hearing, and sense of smell (along with touch and taste). Sharon once stated that he was able to dodge bullets because he "sees faster than them".


  • Master Martial Artist: Sharon is an expert in the field of martial arts. She has mastered karate, judo, aikido, savate, boxing, and multiple styles of kung fu.
  • Expert Acrobat: She is an Olympic class athlete, gymnast, acrobat and aerialist capable of many difficult feats.
  • Expert Marksman: Sharon is a very accurate marksman skilled in sharpshooting and knife throwing.
  • Multilingual: She is fluent in Russian, English, French, German, Chinese, and various other languages.
  • Expert Tactician: She is a very effective strategist, tactician, and field commander. She has lead the Avengers and even SHIELD on one occasion.
  • Talented Hacker: Sharon can hack into most computer systems without tripping any firewalls or security.
  • Master Seductress: She is an expert in the field of seduction. Sharon has been infamously known to bend many different men to her will and sometimes even get them to do her bidding for her. She sometimes continues deceiving certain men through means of acting if she still has a further use for them.
  • Expert Spy: Sharon is a dangerous secret agent trained in espionage, stealth, disguise, infiltration, and demolitions. Her talents and years of experience have enabled her to reach a high ranking as an agent of SHIELD.
