Eventually, she was detected by Alpha Woman’s telepathy as a meta-human and a request of transfer was filed to send her to the Metrobay Police Department and the Superheroine Squad as their resident doctor and expert in meta-human medicine and therapy. While a staunchly avowed pacifist, Kuria nonetheless does all she can on the sidelines to keep the heroines in peak physical shape and to nurse them back to health after every battle.
Free to use her gifts openly in the company of her fellow meta-humans, she now frequently partners with Ted Twiss to help devise and develop new ways to heal both normal and super individuals from the various attacks on Metrobay, making her one of the most appreciated and important members of the team, even as she’s content to leave the spotlight and theatrical heroics to the rest of the girls.
