Livewire considers herself the "latest model" of electric meta-humans. She also takes any chance to make a joke by making what someone said sound like an innuendo.
Livewire is a slim young woman with chalk-white skin, blue eyes and cyan-blue hair styled in an undercut. She wears a strapless indigo dye leotard with black edges and skintight pants with a black pattern, slightly below the waistline which leave her obliques exposed. She also dons a matching skintight cloth above and below her elbows, fingerless cycling gloves and boots.
Under unknown circumstances, Livewire was sentenced to Belle Reve Penitentiary. While en route to prison, her transportation was intercepted by Branchwater Security. Like every other victim of this meta-human trafficking ring, Livewire was abducted and then enslaved via an injection of Mad Hatter's nano-tech.
Nightwing's team tracked Livewire and her accomplices down in an empty warehouse, as they were getting ready to make their escape. She sparred with Black Lightning, who managed to knock her onto the ground with a physical attack and then shorted out her brain.
Livewire despondently attended the Center's welcoming session. She looked even less pleased after Eduardo Dorado Sr. told the meta-teen audience that they had the option to turn off their powers with inhibitor collar mainly used on meta-criminals.
Afterwards, in a training session supervised by Eduardo Sr., Livewire scoffed at the idea of needing practice to control her powers as she considered herself and Mist too experienced for training. Her overconfidence rubbed on Wendy, who got a little carried away using her aerokinesis and created a cyclone which ensnared Mist in her vaporous form. Livewire used her powers to stop Wendy and was about to attack again for hurting Mist. Wendy slammed Livewire against the wall and then began sucking all of the oxygen out of the room, causing everyone else to fall to the ground, gasping for air. Eduardo Jr. managed to teleport them both outside the Center to save everyone.
Later in another counselling session, Livewire and Mist walked away with a visible look of resentment towards Wendy.
At the Harvest Festival carnival, Livewire had fun riding bumper cars with Mist, and later she treated both of them with some cotton candy. After sunset, Livewire and every other meta-teens were gassed unconscious by Onslaught, who intended to abduct them. Livewire was snatched by Tommy Terror but the Outsiders rescued her.
