Real Name: Sue Travers
Identity/Class: Human transformed by magic
Occupation: School girl
Affiliations: Amazing Three, Police Inspector Burke
Known Relatives: Craig (twin brother, a.k.a. Blue Wizard)
Base of Operations: Satellite base orbiting above the U.K.; formerly Newton City
First Appearance: Jackpot #23 (I.P.C., 6th October 1979)
Powers/Abilities: Sue transforms into Tanya whenever any one of the group says or even writes the phrase Rings of Zorr. Tanya can fire lasers from her fingertips, can fly and is capable of going into outer space without a suit on, even flying interstellar distances in minutes, though the ability to survive in space is apparently down to a spell cast by Blue Wizard, rather than her own powers. She also demonstrates powers of "deep hypnosis" at one point. In Zenith she appeared to have superstrength and bulletproof skin too.
Tanya can fly and blast lasers from her fingertips
She may also have a level of superhuman strength.
History: A criminal on his homeworld of Zorr, the villainous Vogler was sentenced to exile on an uninhabited world, but the ship transporting him was knocked off course towards Earth. Monitoring his journey from the other side of the Galaxy, Zorrian scientists observed three young Earthlings, twins Sue and Craig Travers and their friend Sam Pacey, close to where Vogler had crashlanded. Judging them ill-equipped to fight Vogler, the scientists decided to give them extra powers. Within moments the power transfer was complete, and seconds later the children found themselves encircled by rings of light, while an image of the chief scientist informed them to "just call on the Rings of Zorr whenever you need super powers to fight for good against evil." When Sue queried "Rings of Zorr?" the trio were immediately transformed . Finding herself able to fly and with fingertip lasers, she chose the codename Tanya, and joined her sibling and friend in forming the Amazing Three.
The group battled Vogler on multiple occasions, only sometimes capturing him but always defeating his schemes.
Comments: Created by Trevor Metcalfe.
All of the Amazing Three appeared as major supporting cast in Zenith: Phase 3. Tanya was a casualty of the war against the Lliogor, being decapitated by a particularly vicious blow to the head. After the battle was won, Blue Wizard erected a monument in honour of all the fallen heroes, including his sister.
