History: Electroclash is the daughter of two famous British heroes, the Falklands War veteran Rampart and his wife, Velvet Veil. By the time she was a teenager, her powers had emerged, and her parents tried to groom her to be a superhero like them, but Electroclash rebelled, especially against her father's strict beliefs. Despite this, she did go down the hero route, teaming up with She-Force to form the unfortunately named duo "Lady Trouble," who had a brief run of success, featured in their own comic and inspired a small fan club. Lady Trouble eventually split up, though they remain good friends, Electroclash's cynicism contrasting with She-Force's cheerful optimism. Electroclash briefly dated the Hotness, putting up with his ineptness largely it seems because the relationship annoyed her father. In recent times she has been disciplined for misusing her powers for petty crimes such as pinching a free pack from cigarette machines, and was briefly forced to take on a similarly delinquent sidekick, Jackrabbit, as community service. Mostly though, she hangs around with her friends at the superhero pub The Fortress where she often ridiculed the doorman Thundermonkey for his ineffectual powers.
Comments: Created by Drew Pearce. Played by Claire Keelan, and by Anna Goodison as a teenager.
