Alinta, also known as Bolt, is a new student at Teen Titans Academy.

Origins

During her childhood, Alinta had a torn piece of paper that had written a formula that allowed her to draw energy from the Speed Force. Her parents used Alinta's new powers to help their business of trafficking stolen goods until she lost her legs as part of a debt her parents couldn't pay and was left for dead.

She was rescued by Amanda Waller, who gave her some blades to put on as prosthetic legs so that she could run once again, but this deal came with the condition that she was now owned by Waller.[1]

Titans Academy

Waller had Alinta join the Titans Academy on the condition that if she called her, Alinta had to come back running to her. She became the roommate of Summer Zahid and assisted to Nightwing's birthday party.[2]

Bolt encounters the Suicide Squad

During a training session Alinta choose to be called Bolt after Cyborg told her that she was pushing herself too hard. Bolt was later called by Waller to join the Suicide Squad, but she refused which caused Waller to send the squad after her.[3]

After going out for their movie night with her friends, Bolt went for a run and encountered the Suicide Squad, though she successfully avoided capture.[4] Alinta was later attacked by Red X, who allowed the Suicide Squad to enter the Tower so that they could capture her, fortunately she was saved by her fellow Teen Titans.[5]

Bolt would later join her fellow Titans on a fight against Gorilla Grodd who wanted to unleash an attack on New York City.[6]

Powers

  • Speed Force Conduit: Alinta possesses a connection to the Speed Force, a mysterious cosmic force that pushes time and space itself forward. As a conduit of the Speed Force, all aspects of Alinta's physiology are accelerated and enhanced.[7]
    • Accelerated Healing: By having a connection to the speed force, Alinta has an incredibly fast healing factor and can heal from most injuries in seconds and devastating injuries in minutes.[8]
    • Enhanced Senses: The Speed Force enhances Alinta's senses, allowing her to perceive and process thoughts faster than the normal person.[9]
    • Phasing: Alinta can tap into the Speed Force to vibrate her molecules in a way to achieve intangibility for short bursts, allowing her to phase through objects.[10]
    • Speed Force Aura: The Speed Force manifests an aura around Alinta and whatever She is carrying, protecting her from adverse effects of her speed, such as friction with the air.[11]
      • Superhuman Durability: The Speed Force Aura also protects Alinta from kinetic impacts, which in turn, makes her much more durable and resistant to injury than any normal human.[12]
    • Superhuman Stamina: The Speed Force grants Alinta with a great increase of stamina, allowing her to fight or run much longer than the average person. Although a great increase, it is not unlimited.[9]
    • Superhuman Speed: The universal factor of being a Speed Force conduit grants Alinta with imperceptible amounts of speed. All powers that Alinta possesses derives from her speed.[9]. This also confers:
      • Superhuman Agility: Alinta's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels. This allows her to easily maneuver while moving at superhuman speed.[9]
      • Superhuman Reflexes: In conjunction with her enhanced senses, Alinta's reflexes are heightened immesurably, allowing her to dodge or react faster than normal.[9]
    • Vortex Creations: Alinta is able to create vortices of air by running in circles or rotating her extremities at super-speed. These vortices can be used for a number of effects.[13]

Weaknesses

  • Missing Limb: Both of Bolt's legs have been replaced with prosthetics below the knee.
  • Power Limitation: Unlike other speedsters who are able to run at superhuman speed continuously, Alinta is only able to tap into the Speed Force and move at superspeed in short bursts, making her a "Speed Force sprinter".[14]

Equipment

  • Prosthetic running blades
