Perhaps Carlie realized the power of politics and decided, as Menace, to get a piece of the action, so to speak. She was motivated by the power that lied in dealing with politics, in other words.

Exactly. She could have hooked up with the Tinkerer (is he still alive?). I mean the Grizzly for instance gets most of his strength from his exoskeleton so I can't see why it wouldn't work on a woman. I agree with you completely.
