Phantom Lady is a super-hero who is usually a member of the Freedom Fighters. She fights crime using martial arts and a variety of high-tech gadgets that give her control over the light spectrum. Originally she was Sandra Knight, a Golden Age hero who fought the Nazi army alongside the All-Star Squadron. Her student and successor was Dee Tyler, who carried on her legacy until she died during the Infinite Crisis. She was succeeded by Stormy Knight, a brilliant scientist and celebrity actress, formerly an agent of S.H.A.D.E.. In the Prime Earth continuity, Jennifer Knight takes the alias.
