Origin

The boisterous host of a local radio show, Leslie Willis built her career on cynically bashing Superman. After the wife of the radio station's manager was saved by the Man of Steel, Willis' opinions became instantly unpopular with management and she was fired.


Apparently already possessing the ability to manipulate electricity, Willis went into a rage and climbed to the radio tower - absorbing massive amounts of electricity and transforming into a Livewire.
