Character biography

Tinya Wazzo was the daughter of Winema Wazzo, the Btzgllian Ambassador to the United Planets, and regularly chafed under her mother's obsession with running her life for her. One day, she was helping her mother at a conference, which included the official unveiling of the Legion of Super-Heroes (at that point composed of just the three founders), when, in a rush, she phased through the decorative UP globe rather than go around it and spotted something wrong. Thus, when Saturn Girl scanned the room, she picked up on this, giving time for Cosmic Boy and Live Wire to get rid of it before the blast went off. She then tagged along while they searched for the culprits and saved Saturn Girl's life and, along with Triad, was immediately inducted onto the team. Saturn Girl (Imra Ardeen of Titan, the moon of Saturn) is a DC Comics superhero. ... Cosmic Boy (Rokk Krinn of the planet Braal) is a comic book superhero in the DC Comics universe. ... Live Wire, (Garth Ranzz of the planet Winath) is a comic book superhero in the DC Comics universe. ... This page discusses the post-Zero Hour reboot version of the character. ...


When she met Ultra Boy, the two were instantly mutually smitten, but their romance was tumultuous, with Tinya's mother - already angered by her entry into the Legion - dead set against it, until Tinya was apparently killed by Daxamite White Triangle terrorists, who burned her to death with their heat vision in the invulnerable Ultra Boy's arms. Ultra Boy is a fictional character, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the thirtieth century of the DC Universe. ...


However, that was not the end for Tinya. Shortly afterward, Jo (Ultra Boy) began having painful seizures, and, eventually, Apparition emerged from his body - although now permanently phased and with only Jo and her mother able to see her. Nonetheless, she played a small but critical part in freeing the Legion from the Emerald Eye's control, after it had corrupted Shrinking Violet. As she phased through Imra (Saturn Girl), she accidently freed her (with the side-benefit that Imra could now see her), and Imra managed to influence the others enough until Violet panicked, causing the Eye to send half the Legionnaires (including Imra, Tinya and Jo) back in time to the late 20th Century, and take Violet far away through space. This page discusses the post-Zero Hour reboot version of the character. ...

Apparition first encounters Phase (left). Art by Alan Davis

While stranded in the past, she encounted a psychic using a Bgztllian touchstone - a red stone that aided the Bgztllians' phasing, which encounter ended with her now visible to all, and able to disrupt machinery and electronics when phasing through them. Then, when Phase of the L.E.G.I.O.N. came to find the touchstone - hers - it was discovered that Phase was also Tinya Wazzo! The two involuntarily merged, and Tinya became the dominant personality in the resulting body, gaining a physical form once more. Through hypnotic regression, it was found that Tinya was half-Carggite, and that she should have had the Carggite ability to triplicate, but, unbeknowst to Tinya's mother, who hadn't known that Tinya's father was a Carggite and was only expecting one child, Tinya's father had stolen her other two bodies as newborns and sold them to the Luck Lords to pay off his gambling debts. Phase, lost in time, was one of these. The fate of her third body remains unknown.
