Most commonly known in the west, many different species of bees work in colonies using their inner electromagnetic fields to gather pollen from flowers, storing it in the hive. The female worker bees are known to forage for pollen and defend the hive, while the males, called "drones", exist solely to mate with the queen, and die off shortly after. They are known for their ability to leave their stingers in an attacker's body as it injects venom.
Powers and Stats
Origin: Real Life
Gender: Usually female, males do not sting and only exist to mate with the queen
Age The larvae typically grow into full-fledged worker bees after 21 days
Classification: Insect, Bee, Bug, Worker
Powers and Abilities: Flight, Can sting opponents and inject venom into them, Has its own electromagnetic field that it can use to tap into the electronic fields of the earth, allowing it to tell where "North" is, as well as the ability to predict thunderstorms by sensing the static within the air that precedes said storms, can raise their body temperatures to survive the winter, which can also be used defensively when in groups
Attack Potency: Below Average Human level (It has been estimated that it requires 1100 stings in order to be lethal to humans).
Speed: Normal Human (Some of the fastest bees can reach speeds of 15 mph or 6.7056 m/s)
Lifting Strength: Below Average Human (Can lift 122 times its own weight, can fly while carrying it's whole body weight in pollen)
Striking Strength: Below Human Class
Stamina: Extremely high, Killer Africanized Honeybees have been known to chase perceived threats for distances well over 500 meters while attacking relentlessly, regular honey bees can travel up to 6 miles at 15 mph, estimated to be capable of traveling 40 miles on a belly full of honey
Range: Below Human Melee Range
Standard Equipment: None
Intelligence: Surprisingly high, can memorize locations and communicate via "dancing", which is known as one of the most complex languages in the animal kingdom, experiments show that bees can find their way back home from 8 miles away
Weaknesses: Cannot swim, easily weighed down by water, can be killed easily by humans, They die shortly after stinging (Although bumblebees can sting multiple times and still live), extremely hypersensitive to the extent that electrically charged particles mess with its navigation, Africanized killer bees are easily angered and overly aggressive
- Sting: injects venom into the target, causing swelling and possible allergies.
- Balling: in groups, bees are capable of encapsulating opponents in a sphere of workers, and raising their body tempuratures in order to burn them. In groups of 500, bees are capable of cranking the total combined body head to 117 degrees fahrenheit.
