Torment is the most reluctant of the PSI operatives. She doesn't actually want to hurt people or take over the world. What she does want, however, is to avoid the excruciating pain that torments her (and is the source of her name). She was born with a disorder that caused her intense pain that would fire at random in different parts of her body, and that didn't respond to any known medical treatments. Dr. Sebastian Poe figured out it was a result of psionic abilities and developed a drug to treat it. Now Psimon and Medusa use that drug to force Torment to serve them. Her one mental power - projecting pain into the minds of others.
