One could say that Violet has a family history of superpowers. Her father, who abandoned her at birth, was the shapeshifting hero turned anarchist named Vengeance. When she turned 14, her little heritage clicked in, giving her strength and durability far beyond what most teens have.
Strength: As soon as Violet's powers manifested, she was able to lift like she was an athlete who had trained her whole life - and as the years go by, she only gets stronger. She doesn't have to exercise or anything for it, but nowadays, it isn't too much to see her lifting cars easily.
If there's a downside to this, it's that she sometimes doesn't know her own strength - she kinda banned herself from video games after accidentally crushing a game boy and a copy of pokemon after a loss.
Healing: It's a bit slow right now, but, as Violet found out when her back was broken, she can heal from just about any injury, given time. One imagines it might eventually get to the point where she can heal grievous wounds in a handful of minutes, but anything that doesn't outright kill her at the moment - she can recover from. She seems to be better at healing bones rather than flesh/resisting disease at the moment, no doubt due to the practice she's had already.
Weakness: No matter how invulnerable/strong she gets, for whatever reason, the small of her back is weaker than the rest. Relatively weaker - she's basically a normal human at that point. So bullets and things that she would normally shrug off/just sting her in the rest of her body? There, it cuts right through. Getting hit with something in the jaw that she would just ignore? The small of your back is important. Even if it was armored, something that hits her hard enough there would drive her to her knees, and basically cut off her support, making it hard, if not impossible, to use her strength in any real way. What this means that even if she was armored, if she was hit with, say, a sledgehammer in that specific spot, with enough force to damage a normal human - she would feel the effect as if she were entirely normal. And to boot, it heals slower there as well.
Violet was on a fast track to supervillainism. She didn't know her father growing up, and her and her siblings were living a life of petty crime - something that only accelerated when she got her powers.
Her father came out of the woodwork, too, and offered to take her with him, train her - be a family somewhere away from the crappy little town she was growing up in. All she had to do was kill a superhero that her father would arrange for her to be near at a certain time and date.
Problem is, she couldn't. And her father showed his displeasure by shooting her with a heavy sniper round.
The hero she was supposed to kill - Goldenman of the Northwestern League of Justice, ended up saving her life, and giving her the opportunity to turn the course of her life around towards something more… heroic.
Seems like one of the 'cool kids'. Friendly, though, not like the cliques at home.
I get the sense he's been through some things. Twitchy, touchy, and a little spastic - but if I were able to run like a million miles per hour, I'd probably be the same way. But hey, if he keeps bringing free pizza from his job, I'll love him forever.
Kinda one of those good hearted dopey kinda guys. Tends to get quiet in groups, though - curious to see what he'll be like out of his shell.
A good friend, probably the best I got here. Going through some rough times, I know she'll make it through though. She's tuff..
One of my best friends in the universe, even… or especially now.
