Weasel Woman is a fictional character, a superheroine and longtime member of the Superior Squad.
Weasel Woman's nickname "Weesie" may have come from Louise Jefferson or real-life comics writer Louise Simonson, both of whom have the same nickname. Because of her claws and mêlée-based fighting style, Weasel Woman serves most often as a parody of Wolverine. Not only does she have a similar power set; her claws make a similar sound when she retracts them: "SNAK" to Wolverine's "SNIKT."
Originally a homemaker, Louise "Weesie" Weeshall went on a camping trip with her family when a rabid ferret attacked her. Although anyone else would have gotten rabies, Louise gained superhuman powers. She thought a weasel attacked her, though, so she took on the identity of Weasel Woman. She became a charter member of the Superior Squad, adventuring with them from the first issue.
Weasel Woman has superhuman agility, speed, vision, and sense of smell. She also has fingernails made of a "rigidium polymer" that she can extend and retract at will; whether she inherited this attribute from the rabid ferret remains a mystery. Although she usually fights with her claws, Weasel Woman has also wielded a whip in battle. She has also mentioned an ability to communicate with animals.
As sometimes happens with superpowered beings, her powers can work to her detriment. Weasel Woman has an allergy to cat fur that her heightened senses only exacerbate.
