Leslie Willis is Livewire, an electricity manipulating super-villain and former video blogger. She primarily fights Superman although she has gone up against the likes of Batgirl. She has been a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains.


Leslie Willis was an ordinary video blogger based in Metropolis, her blog mainly consisted of unfunny pranks and makeup tutorials. Although her pranks were normally harmless she eventually planned a prank that would go to far. Leslie designed a device which would allow her to control all of the electricity in Metropolis once set up to the main power station of the city.[1]

She managed to break into the power station and hook up her device to the power grid, she then recorded herself as she prepared to pull her prank. However as she prepared to pull the lever to activate the device, her invention was taken away by Superman. Angered by the sabotage of her prank, Leslie decided to settle with turning the power off which would leave Metropolis in complete darkness. However when she turned the switch off she received a gigantic electric shock which put her into a coma.[1]

When she awoke she found that she was a creature of pure electricity. Seeking revenge on Superman for the condition she was in, she fought the hero several times under the moniker Livewire. Eventually with the help of Batman, Superman was able to create a containment cell capable of holding Livewire in her electrical form. Livewire was captured by the two heroes and transported to Stryker's Island Penitentiary where she was supposed to serve out her prison time.[1]
