Ayla Ranzz, also known as Lightning Lass, and at different times in her history as Light Lass, is a fictional character, a superheroine in the future of the DC Comics universe, and is member of the Legion of Super-Heroes

Fictional Biography

Lightning Lass (Ayla Ranzz of the planet Winath, where twinning is normal) first appeared in Adventure Comics #308, (May 1963). She is the twin sister of fellow Legionnaire Lightning Lad and the younger sister of the villainous Lightning Lord. All three gained their lightning powers after being attacked by creatures called lightning beasts on the 'lightning world' of Korbal. She originally joined the Legion disguised as her brother Lightning Lad claiming to be her brother back from the dead, after Lightning Lad's apparant death at the hands of Zaryan. Her imposture was soon discovered but she was admitted into the Legion as Lightning Lass. For many years she was called Light Lass, after Dream Girl used the science of her homeworld Naltor to change her lightning powers with the ability to make objects super-lightweight, or anti-gravity powers. (the Light Lass powers were explained both ways over the years.) She regained her lightning powers in a battle with Lightning Lord, this occured after Ayla had left the Legion for a time, disillusioned with her Legion career and having just broken up with Timber Wolf

She had a lengthy romance with fellow Legionnaire Timber Wolf. She broke up with him following a misunderstanding when she saw Timber Wolf embracing her sister-in-law Saturn Girl when both were stranded on a frozen asteroid. Later she entered into a relationship with Shrinking Violet.

Superhuman Powers

She has the superhuman ability, as Lightning Lass to generate electricity, usually in the form, of lightning bolts. As Light Lass, she has the power to cancel gravity.
