HistoryEdit

Cassandra Anderson is the eponymous protagonist of the 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine strip Anderson, Psi-Division. She was born with psychic abilities which became stronger as she grew older, partly due to the mental trauma of childhood abuse which she later blocked from her memory as a defence mechanism. Inducted into Justice Department's Psi-Division at an early age, Anderson became one of their top operatives, though her rebellious personality did not always make her popular with her superiors (Psi-Division operatives are allowed a degree of personal freedom denied to their non-psychic colleagues, but tend to be regarded as eccentric, and Anderson was no exception). When the alien superfiend Judge Death first came to Mega-City One from Deadworld, Anderson sacrificed herself to become a living prison for his evil psychic essence, being encased in the miracle plastic Boing® in a comatose state. She was later released as a side-effect of Death's comrades the Dark Judges freeing him, and has become one of Death's most implacable foes. She is also a staunch ally of Judge Dredd (without her assistance he might not have been able to end the Apocalypse War), though he disapproves of her anti-authoritarian attitude and "defective personality."
