ABC's of Crimsonstreak: Letter M

M is for Miss Lightspeed.

The mother of Crimsonstreak and wife to Colonel Chaos, Miss Lightspeed is one of the world's leading heroes. Her abilities include flight, superstrength, and superspeed.

In the 1960s and 70s, she fought and captured the world's most preeminent supervillain, Colonel Chaos. Despite their obvious rivalry, the two eventually fell in love and Chaos repented for his evil ways. They worked together to handle several world crises and eventually brought a son into the world.

A champion for world peace, Miss Lightspeed has been known to "go rogue" on peace missions, offering aid and diplomatic solutions for countries other nations refuse to help. She is also believed to be one of the fastest people on Earth.

During Crimsonstreak's freshman year of college, Miss Lightspeed was killed during a battle against the murderous madman Zeus Caesar. Her death sent her husband into a tailspin, and he returned to his more sinister ways. Years later, Miss Lightspeed implausibly returned, her husband telling the world that she'd simply been in "suspended animation" for several years.
