Along with powerful offensive powers, Sparkz can use the same energy to protect herself and fly at incredible speeds
Sparkz is a trained model and spokeswoman, she can show whatever emaotion is called for - making impersonation and subterfuge easy.

Weaknesses and Limitations
- Physically very vulnerable

Allison Thompson was a popular magazine model. She entered a contest being held by Enercell Ltd, an electronics powerhouse. The contest was to find a spokemodel/heroine to use their new technology to help fight crime and test the unit, as well as be a living advertisement for Enercell. Allison won the competition by a landslide. She received several technological outfits - each more powerful and more skimpy than the last. She fought for over a year using her electrical based powers for good.
Then she learned the truth. Enercell Ltd is a subsidiary of Crey Industries. The suit she was testing was bound for the Paragon Protectors program. With the help of various heroes she had come to know during her tenure as a hero ( Vindicator, Angrytownsman), Sparkz was able to break into the Enercell Research and Development center and destroy all known records of the design of her suit. She learned that it was not the whole suit granting her powers - just the belt.
She decided the belt could do more good and took it to a friend who ran a pawnshop that specialized in cheap paraphernalia for heroes. Note - the belt mentioned appears to be the same one currently worn by Omega Joule
Upon leaving the store, Allison was ready to get her life back in line. No more heroing. No more endangering her life for others. That was when she heard the muffled sounds of pain coming from a nearby park. She hesitantly entered the park and found a hero with blazing white eyes lying in a pool of blood. Allison looked into the strangers eyes and somehow made contact. A brief telepathic exchange was made with the Kheldian trapped in the dying host. Allison reluctantly agreed to become a host to spare its life.
Now Sparkz is back on the hero scene with a new costume, new powers and a new resolve.
