Pyrokinesis: Silk Fever possesses the ability to psionically ignite oxygen molecules in her environment. The most visible manifestation of her power is an aura of fire that surrounds her body completely and obscures her physical features. She uses her pyrokinesis to project blasts of intense flame, either in controlled bursts or as an omni-directional wave powerful enough to incinerate large trees and human beings in seconds. Silk Fever has also learned to use her power to create superheated updrafts of air by which she can levitate herself and fly at subsonic speeds.
Immunity (Flame): Silk Fever is immune to heat and flames even if they are not of her creation, provided they do not exceed the maximum temperature she can generate with her own powers.
Later, she was gathered by Left Hand to join the Folding Circle. It was revealed her mother was a member of the Dragon's Breadth cult, a religion that sought the power of the Universal Wellspring, an otherworldly portal to another dimension. Tai, the cult's leader, forced Go Vin Ng, along with the other men in his military unit, to marry brides of the cult and make children that would be of use to her later.
The daughter of Lieutenant Go Vin Ng of the South Vietnamese Army, Min Li Ng first appeared alongside the Force of Nature, a group basd on elemental powers. She took the name Firewall, and claimed that her powers came from exposure to experimental napalm during the Vietnam War. She and her team mates often fought the New Warriors.
