"A motherly-looking nurse wearing a cornucopia necklace in her hair came bustling up the corridor, smiling warmly at Master Intelligence and the others."

Martha Strout was a nurse on the James Hughes Ward at NYC Hospital. She was described to be a motherly-looking healer.


Early life (?-2022)Edit

Strout's origin and relatives are unknown. However, she was most likely born in the 20th century and achieved high marks in Superhero School thus allowing her to become a medimutant.

Martha Strout was responsible for looking after long-term patients such as Laura. When Baby Intelligence, Baby Strength, Force Baby, Telekinibabe, and Sebiscuits Cardarphen came up to the hospital ward, she led them in, where she revealed that Lindsay Kellerman had just been brought in.

Second Cold War and aftermath (2041-2043)Edit

"Look, Fredrick, you've been sent a potted plant and a lovely calendar with a different fancy Falgama for each month."
―Martha Strout's mistake[src]

In 2041, at the height of the Second Cold War, Strout began looking after Fredrick Powell while preparing for the Thanksgiving period. It was her job to putt up decorations, look after patients, and see to visitations from friends and family.

Soon after he entered, Fredrick was given a potted plant (unbeknownst to either of them) from the Knights of Plague. Although NYC Hospital has strict regulations of the gifts allowed into the hospital, Strout mistook the plant to be a harmless sunflower, and thought the improving Powell could take care of it. When the vines strangled him in his hospital bed, the mistake cost him his life. She was suspended on full pay whilst the matter was investigated, and was unavailable for comments for the newspaper.

She later spoke with Master Intelligence and explained the events of Powell's demise, who assured Strout she was not to blame for it.

Personality and traitsEdit

Despite being kind and well-meaning, Martha was also fussy.
