History: Retro Girl was one of the most popular celebrity superheroes of the City, if not the country. She came into prominence after she prevented an (unspecified) terrorist attack and was prominent member of the local superhero community thereafter. Her bubbly personality and physical attractiveness no doubt helped maintain her popularity. She was also the one who dragged Walker away from the battle where he lost his powers.
Retro Girl was killed by a deranged fan using homemade "drainer" who had decided that she should die before she would be spoilt by fame. The culprit was eventually caught and when police were transferring him to a prison, Triphammer killed him by disintegration.
