Brea’s superpower is speed. She told the Associated Press, “I’m stealing a secret that’s been kept in Hiro’s family for a long time that he’s just now found. He stops time right as I grab it, but in that second it took him to grab it, I almost make it out of the office.” According to Masi Oka (Hiro),

“Her character is supposed to be Hiro’s Joker. Batman has the Joker. Hiro has Daphne. This is the season where Hiro finally finds his arch-nemesis, and it happens to be this Speedster. I kind of equate it more to Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, except Daphne says more than ‘meep meep.’”
