Cyclone was a member of the Justice Society of America.
Cyclone was supposed to exist on Prime Earth but her existence was erased after Doctor Manhattan prevented Alan Scott from becoming the Green Lantern and, as a consequence, his death prevented the creation of the Justice Society of America.
Later, Doctor Manhattan undid his actions and allowed Alan Scott to become once again the Green Lantern and form the Justice Society. Cyclone was brought back to life and was part of the Justice Society, along with the other heroes, helped Superman defeat the metahumans who were ravaging Washington, D.C..
