Early Years

Orphaned at an early age, Sasha Martin was a wonderful little girl when she was young.[2] As she grew up however, she acquired a serious attitude problem. After somehow acquiring an extraterrestrial gauntlet which granted her great power, Sasha adopted the codename Southpaw and used it for crime and chaos, joining a gang, smashing her high school, and wrecking Disney World.[1]


All good things must come to an end, however, and Sasha was finally incarcerated after being temporarily paralyzed by Night Thrasher. She was imprisoned in the Big House and, facing the prospect of being remanded to the custody of her grandfather Holden Holliway, she made an alliance with the Mad Thinker, wherein she helped him and a number of their fellow inmates to escape. However, when some of these inmates attempted to kill her grandfather, she turned on them, and was ultimately placed in the custody of Jennifer Walters. This proved to be an acrimonious arrangement, especially after She-Hulk was shortly after chosen to serve with the Magistrati, thus requiring that Southpaw be taken far from Earth.[3] After this, Southpaw was given a sort of babysitter in the form of Awesome Andy.[4] Shortly thereafter, She-Hulk was brutally attacked by Titania, and Southpaw ran away.[5] Her grandfather took an extended sabbatical in order to look for her.[6]

Southpaw is able to create energy hands with greater size, strength and durability than her own. These hands are all left and respond to the motions of her left hand.[7]


Southpaw can experience pain if an energy hand is injured.[7]



Southpaw wears a large alien gauntlet that covers her left arm and hand.[8]


  • Sasha was 15 when she was first arrested.[1]
  • The future Southpaw said she was inspired to become a superhero by the Gauntlet.
  • Gauntlet wears the right gauntlet from the same armor from which Southpaw's gauntlet originates.
