Jocasta possesses several superhuman capacities due to her robotic nature. Her outer skin was made of titanium steel, making her impervious to all projectiles up to light anti-tank armor-piercing shells, to temperatures up to the melting point of steel, and to pressures up to 10 Earth atmospheres. As a non-living machine, she did not need to eat, breathe, or sleep. The mechanisms that mimicked human musculature were superior to organic tissue, providing her with superhuman strength.

Jocasta could mimic many human functions, including locomotor and axial movement, speech, and independent thought. She possessed optical and aural sensors surpassing the slight and hearing capacity of the average human being. She also had a special cybernetic sensory system, enabling her to perceive minute electromagnetic particles and identify their source. The extent of this capacity is not known.\n\nJocasta was able to project beeams of some as yet unidentified electromagnetic energy from her optical sensors. The specifications of this ability are also not known. Designed by Ultron, Jocasts probably shared many of her builder's specifications.

Jocasta was built by Ultron to become his perfect mate. Since he considered Henry Pym to be his "father", he used the brainwave patterns of the Wasp as the basis for Jocasta's mind. Ultron used a hypnotic suggestion to control Pym into helping him make the transfer. Henry Pym donned his Ant-Man costume and believed the Avengers to be enemies. However, in the end, it was an also-hypnotized Iron Man who ended up capturing the Wasp for the transfer. The Avengers rescued the Wasp and Jocasta was left in a warehouse, believed to never have been activated.

Later Jocasta showed up at the Mansion, and was accepted by the Avengers since she clearly stood against Ultron in their last encounter. She stayed with the team for a while, but believed that they would never truly accept her, and she left.

Later, Jocasta herself was hypnotised by Ultron into reassembling his body, which she did. She joined forces with X-51, the Machine Man, to defeat Ultron, and Jocasta sacrificed her life to stop him. X-51, who had fallen in love with Jocasta, vowed to find a way to bring her back from death, but was never successful.

Jocasta was later rebuilt by the High Evolutionary, but she turned against him and was destroyed once again. Her head was carried away by Madame Menace. She was recently rebuilt and destroyed (again), but her memory was saved by Iron Man and she now resides in the vast computer complex in Tony Stark's home.
