Celia's armored suit is known as the Argo Harness and it was invented by her parents the elder Forrestals for their company Argo Technologies.
The Argo Harness is an energy-transforming device that can absorb many kinds of energy, including heat, electromagnetism, and radioactivity, and either convert it into other forms of energy or store it for later use. Skyrocket normally utilizes this stored energy as bolts of heat, kinetic energy, or directed electromagnetic fields. She can use the harness to fly by repelling the planet's own electromagnetic field. The Harness can recharge itself from virtually any kind of energy. Any attack carried out against Celia with fire, radioactivity, electricity or any other form of exited particle will just make her more powerful.
About seven years ago, former Navy lieutenant Celia Forrestal's parents were killed by Scorpio terrorists, after constructing the powerful Argo Harness, an energy-transforming device that was conceived as a peaceful tool, but had the potential of a destructive weapon. Surviving the explosion that killed her parents, Celia used the Argo Harness to avenge their deaths. On the suggestion of Green Lantern Hal Jordan, she decided to continue her crimefighting as the super-hero Skyrocket. Skyrocket has now been active for years, but has chosen a career outside the limelight. Recently, that changed when Celia chose to join the Power Company, the corporate hero team, as a business partner.
