Real Name: Olga Gottman
Identity/Class: Mutant human
Base of Operations:
First Appearance: Champions; Sparkplug
Powers/Abilities: Sparkplug can generate and control electricity. She is also able to fly, and heals faster than regular humans.
History: Sparkplug is the sister of Teresa Feran, a.k.a. Flare of the Champions. Like her sister she was brought up in South America by an enclave of die-hard Nazis, and like Flare, and her two brothers, she had been experimented on to grant her superhuman powers when she grew older. When Flare left the compound, Sparkplug initially stayed. Eventually she left the enclave and located her sister, who had become a superhero in the time they had been apart.
Because of her upbringing, Sparkplug is a fervant believer in the supremacy of the Aryan race, and quite prepared to state this opinion openly if asked; normally she considers it self-evident and doesn't bother. However she is intelligent enough to have resisted some of the brainwashing of her upbringing, and while she is arrogant about her racial superiority, she does not hold with any policies of discrimination against those "unfortunate" enough not to have been born Aryans.
Comments: Sparkplug began life as a villain in the Champions roleplaying game, under the name Poinsettia.
