Iron and Cobalt were already operating together in Texas under the names Power and Gloria. Iron, Deb Berzenski, and Cobalt, Gloria Nai, were easily convinced to join up with the stunning trio. It was dangerous work, and having a sister always backing you up wasn't anything to discard. Iron's ability to magnify her density and Cobalt's violet energy creations were two more megaton bombs in the teams rapidly growing arsenal.

Platinum Blonde is able to turn into an organic silvery metal. In this form she is incredibly strong and highly resistant to injury; she is immune to high caliber bullets as well as pressure and temperature extremes. She is able to leap hundreds of yards and run at a sprint of up to thirty miles an hour. She loses none of her natural agility and she seems to have an excellent fighting instinct that makes her a dangerous opponent. She claims this comes from living with three older brothers.
Darlene still needs to breathe air while in organic form, apparently it has to do with her "metalicized cells" still needing oxygen. Darlene is also vulnerable to high powered electrical attacks. Platinum Blonde is also non-boyant, meaning she would sink in water if she remained in steel form so drowning is a very definite fear for her.
