Leslie Willis was once Metropolis' most controversial shock jock. No one was immune to her venomous words, not even Superman. She took great joy in bashing him, and Lex Luthor enjoyed listening to her every morning.
One evening during a severe thunderstorm, Willis was hosting a rock concert in honor of her anniversary working at the radio station in Centennial Park in downtown Metropolis. Ignoring the public safety concerns by Metropolis authorities, and the changeable skies, Willis demanded the show to go on.
It was about that time Superman showed up to help the police. Willis' fans showed support for her by throwing stuff at the Man of Steel, when suddenly, lightning struck the stage, setting it on fire. When Superman pushed Willis to safety, he got struck in the process. The lightning ran through a wire on stage which Willis then stepped on, shocking Willis and changing her appearance.
