Polly is the only girl on the team. Although Speedy is the leader Polly does her fair share of bossing her teammates around. She has a fiery temper and a dynamic independent personality. Polly battles evil with the power of love: she plays a flute when going into battle her projectile weapons are heartshaped and she can charm foes to make them move in the range of her razorsharp claws. She has blue eyes and wears red and pink armour. Her name is a play on the word polyester While Guido and Speedy never remove most of their armour even at work a parody of Superman hiding his identity only by wearing glasses Polly removes her armour on two occasions during which she is shown with short red hair and a hairband on which her ears sit.
