Background/History: The second Silk Spectre is the daughter of Sally Jupiter, the first Silk Spectre. Sally pushed her daughter into being a 'superhero' at an early age, forcing her to follow in her mother's footsteps. Laurel never felt comfortable with this, and was more than happy to retire in 1977 after the passage of the anti-vigilantie Keene Act.
Laurel became an active superhero in 1966 (at the age of 16), with the meeting of the Crimebusters. There, she met Dr. Manhattan, falling in love with him and eventually living with him until 1985. In 1985 Manhattan left Earth and Laurel moved in with Dan Dreiberg (aka Nite Owl II). She then fell in love with Dreiberg. Together, the two of them broke Rorschach out of prison, at which point Manhattan took her to Mars. There, she realized who her father really was (the Comedian) and returned to Earth to confront Ozymandias in his Antarctica base. Afterwards she took up with Dan Dreiberg and assumed the identity of Sandra Hollis.
Personality/Motivation: Silk Spectre's two main personality points is that she resents being a crimefighter (she was forced into it my her mother) and that she hates the Comedian. As stated before, she was more than happy to give up the crimefighter lifestyle in 1977. Interestingly enough, she returns to being a vigilante (along with Dan Dreiberg) in 1985, and by the end of Watchmen is ready and willing to return to crimefighting. Silk Spectre's attitude towards the Comedian change as well. In 1966 she thought he was "pretty cool," in 1973 she she confronted him at banquet and tossed her drink in his face. After realizing her was her father (in 1985) her attitude seemed to... mellow a bit.
Quote: "'Silk Specter's' too girly, y'know? Plus, I want a better costume, that protects me: maybe something leather, with a mask over my face... Also, I oughta carry a gun."
Powers/Tactics: Aside from her gymnastic training, natural agility and martial arts skills, Silk Spectre II has no real "powers." She is more than a match for the average thug (or thugs) but way out of her league when compared to people like Nite Owl II or Ozymandias.
Appearance: Silk Spectre is of average height, with long dark brown hair. She has an attractive figure and wears what looks to be a black one piece swimsuit under an almost transparent "shirt." A belt, choker and high heels complete the outfit.
