When Lightning Lad was killed in a Legion mission, Ayla Ranzz disguised herself as her brother, pretending
that he had come back from the dead. She was soon discovered and joined the Legion in her own right as
Lightning Lass would have had to resign from the Legion when her brother
returned from the dead due to a clause in the Legion charter not allowing members to have duplicate powers, but Dream Girl, a new member of the Legion, had a precognative
dream that Lightning Lass would be killed in an explosion along with other members of the Legion.
Dream Girl rigged a dynamo to remove Lightning Lass's power, but instead of removing her power, it changed
her ability to that of being able to make things "super-light," effectively negating gravity around an object. Lightning
Lass rejoined the Legion as Light Lass.
