focused on getting on with her life. herself into a coherent whole, able to switch between
solid and energy forms. In the process, the essence of
Jo Fenton was destroyed, and what remained was the
long-suppressed base, selfish, and amoral aspects of
her personality. The resurrected Jo wanted Ray Gardner
more than ever, now that they were true soul mates who
shared the lightning. As Lady Lightning, she would do
whatever it took to have him.

Lady Lightning stalked Captain Thunder for several years,


until Blackstone Prison devised a way to successfully
contain her energy form. The world changed during
the years she remained incarcerated, with Captain
Thunder retiring and his son Ray Jr. now carrying

madness left her frozen in the past, and after
escaping Blackstone during the Time of the
Apes incident, the now middle-aged Fenton
began stalking Thunderbolt, oblivious to the
fact shes now pursuing a completely differ-
ent man.

PERSONALITY
Lady Lightning is always manipulative of others,
donning whatever persona helps bring her closer to
Thunderbolt. Only when shes denied him does
the depth of her violent psychotic imbalance
show.

POWERS & ABILITIES


Fenton transforms into a coherent electrical field, making
her immune to physical harm (though still vulnerable to
energy attacks). She can fly along the paths of electrical
lines, and transport herself along information networks
such as cellular telephone and computer. Contact with
her living lightning formby accident or designin-
flicts powerful electrical shocks.

ALLIES
Fenton allies herself with absolutely anyone who can help
put the Gardener du jour in her clutches, even Dr. Stratos.
