Gaelle de Neuchatel is a descendent of the historical hero Flambo. While trying to rescue a small boy from a fire, she became trapped and paralyzed below the neck. She is now confined to a specialized medical bed connected to the internet, designed by her online penpal Superbill. Thanks to him, and his mentor Archie Bolt, she joined the the super-group known as Kidz.
There is a grown up version of Fl@mbo on the parallel earth called Urth, who is a member of the Lightning Lords.
