Kole was a member of the New Teen Titans who could "spin" crystal constructs into existence.
Kole Weathers was a test subject of her father's, Professor Abel Weathers, who was paranoid about an impending nuclear holocaust. Attempting to find a way for humanity to survive the fallout through forced evolution, he grafted his daughter with Promethium. Instead of evolving, Kole found herself with the ability to create and control silicon crystal.
Kole was kidnapped by the mad sun Titan, Thia. For two years, Thia forced Kole to use her powers to construct a crystal prison in which Thia could contain important prisoners. Thia eventually came into conflict with the Teen Titans which led to the death of the goddess and Kole's freedom. Lilith, a member of the Titans who precognition, warned Kole of an ominous portent regarding her future if she returned to Earth and tried to persuade her to remain on Mount Olympus. Kole declined, electing to reclaim her life on Earth.
Back on Earth, Kole tried to reunite with her parents, only to find that her father's experiments had produced a house full of crystalline and insectoid monstrosities. When the Titans came to confront him, he had them captured and attempted to subject them to the same experimentantion. Kole helped them to escape, and in the ensuing conflict, Abel and his wife Marilyn transformed themselves into insects before caused the lab to self-destruct. Having nowhere else to go, Kole chose to follow the Titans to New York City, though she never officially joined
Kole was believed to be killed during the collapse of the multiverse by the Anti-Monitor's shadow demons while trying to protect Robin and the Huntress, but Kole mysteriously resurfaced a few years later, where she assisted the Team Titans against a pack of vampires. Her powers had developed the ability to teleport at will and sense events happening miles away. She also commented that she wasn't anything "alive". After helping the Team Titans in several battles, Kole vanished again.
Kole's death was confirmed when teen successor to the line of Brother Blood created a team of zombie combatants made up of the resurrected deceased members of the Titans. Among those within Blood's ranks was Kole. When Blood's control over these undead Titans was broken by Kid Eternity who power was the source of the resurrections, Kole and the others decomposed. A statue of Kole was erected in the Hall of Fallen Titans in Titans Tower, alongside Hawk and Dove, Aquagirl and others.
