The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters, Jenny Sparks

Born on January 1st, 1900, died exactly one hundred years later � though she stopped ageing in her early twenties because she was mostly made of electricity, the motive force of the 20th Century. Though she was introduced as a new recruit to fairly conventional superhero team Stormwatch, she became a key player in the more ambitious, ambiguous and generally cooler line-up mostly known as The Authority. Various flashbacks have filled in her previous history as a WWII spy, a 1950s space-woman and a 1960s British superheroine, involved in a longstanding conflict with an alternate reality (Sliding Albion) where England rules the world thanks to collaboration with aristocratic aliens.

FIRST APPEARED IN STORMWATCH # 37 (1997)
CREATED BY WARREN ELLIS
