Celebutant Super Hero
Jonni Steele, sometimes referred to as ‘Hot Tub’ Jonni, is the daughter of Professor Thadues Steele. She is approx. 71 years of age, and does not look a day over 18. Genetically engineered by her father with the assistance of Doktor Koncept while both were ‘guests’ of Hydra forces during the second World War. It is rumored that Professor Steele’s expertise and Koncept’s ‘super science’ were being used to create a second generation of Super Soldiers for the Axis powers to counter act the growing number of Allied ‘Super Humans’. Eventually Prof. Steele & Doktor Koncept escaped with the help of their 1920’s allies; ‘Peerless’ Hunter Sabani, The Lone Gunman & Kemosabe, Rook, & sometimes love interest of the Professor Fah lo Suee, daughter of Fu Manchu.
Upon escape and return to the Professor’s home in Minneapolis it was revealed that he had ‘constructed’ a daughter. The full list of genetics components and individuals whom have ‘parentage’ of Jonni Steele have never been revealed even to her.
Jonni was raised under the tutelage of Mary Mitchell, the first Sun Girl. Ms. Mitchell was a long time ‘associate’ of Prof. Steele after her failed romance with Jim Hammond, the Golden Age Human Torch. In addition it is popular rumor that the ‘Modern’ Sun Girl is perhaps the daughter of Ms. Mitchell and Prof. Steele, making her the half-sister of Jonni Steele, but that is pure conjecture.
While living outside the spotlight for many years Jonni found herself lacking for the attention of her father. She began a series of high stakes globe trotting adventures upon her 18 birthday, both to the chagrin of her father and her pseudo-mother. Upon her father’s disappearence in the 1960’s Jonni went into a ten year self-imposed exile, followed by another ten years off Earth. When she returned in 1984 she began a lucrative film career in Japan. Having never aged a day since 18 physically she became a huge draw with her resistance to almost all injury and genetically engineered good looks.
Eventually her film career began to wane so she began drubbing up publicity with a series of ‘stunts’ and public adventurers before again disappearing from the spotlight for seven years. Many speculate that this was due to a failed romance with Wonder Man, aka Simon Williams.
In 1998 Ms. Steele returned to the spotlight with a series of new films, a documentary, and a forward thinking pre-emptive use of social networking to keep her constantly in the periphery of the public’s eye. Ms. Steele has spent literally hundreds of millions of dollars on philanthropic endeavors meanwhile cultivating a carefully crafted public facade of being the ultimate Hollywood party girl.
In late 2010 Baintronics, Inc. made a hostile take over play for The Steele Corp. Jonni has since returned to the Twin Cities proper for the first time in 50 years to re-assert her control over the company which she has found in fiscal ruin. This led to a very public and violatile discourse between Ms. Steele & representatives of Baintronics, Inc.
After asking for and recieving the help of the Twin Cities supergroup ‘The Protectors’ in her bid to board and ‘mine’ her father’s Space/Time Zeppelin she and the group are missing and presumed dead.
