Real Name: Lorraine Reilly
Search for 'Firehawk' on Amazon
Firehawk has a wide array of thermal and radioactive powers. She can create bird-like wings of atomic flame and fly at high speeds. She can fire blasts of fiery thermal energy or bursts of searing radiation. She can lower her molecular density to the point that she can fly through solid matter. She can even manipulate energy fields, such as draining stolen energy back from Parasite.
The daughter of Senator Walter Reilly, Lorraine was kidnapped and experimented on by Multiplex in an attempt to kill Firestorm. The experiments enabled her to become Firehawk, with wings of atomic fire and an ability to generate intense heat. She was brainwashed into attacking the hero, who defeated her, after which she soon reverted to her usual self, remembering little of what had happened. She was later jogged into becoming Firehawk again, but this time as a hero, since when she has battled crime and evil on a regular basis. She has an on-again off-again romantic relationship with Booster Gold.
