Slingshot has obtained the ability of flight since being irradiated. She has used her power for varying effects and seems to the most proficient on the team with her powers. She has been able to dodge incoming projectiles from the sky, fly at increasing speeds and even create a vortex around an opponent so that they lacked oxygen and became disoriented. Slingshot has also exhibited leadership qualities in the field, making her their de factor field leader.
Olivia "Livvie" Lews attends the prestigious Georgetown University and is currently in her junior year. She donates a substantial amount of her free time engaging in volunteer organizations across the campus. Her father is a famed lawyer in Washington DC. Livvie has a boyfriend Derek that she doesn't have a lot of time with, due to her being so busy.
It was on the Georgetown campus that Olivia Lews met Maddie Warner, the widow of Captain Dynamo. Warner explained to Livvie that her biological father is actually Captain Dynamo, and that she has other siblings in the world. Through some coaxing, Livvie joined Maddie Warner to meet her other siblings in the headquarters of Captain Dynamo, in Tower City. It was during this meeting that Warner exposed the five siblings to the same radiation that gave Captain Dynamo his super human abilities. Maddie explained to the siblings that Captain Dynamo's death left a void in Tower City, where super human crime was becoming more prevalent. Warner intended for the five siblings to replace Captain Dynamo, and they agreed, becoming Dynamo 5
Going under the codename of Slingshot, Livvie has obtaned the power of flight. Being the most mature member of the team, she has been the team's de facto field leader. Slingshot has taken time to research their benefactor, Maddie Warner, and found out some pleasing things about her and her journalistic career, leading her to have an admiring relationship with her. The other members of Dynamo 5 believe Slingshot is kissing up to their boss, drawing their sporadic ire, but it seems her admiration for Warner is genuine.
When Dynamo 5 were getting apprehended by F.L.A.G., Slingshot was able to escape to get the help of Maddie Warner. Instead, she came across F.L.A.G. agent Augie Ford. Ford has told Slingshot that he will help her and her teammates out, taking her to F.L.A.G. headquarter to free them. However, when they come across Agent Sandy, it seems that Ford was actually misleading Slingshot, bringing her there only to capture her.
