Leslie Willis was a Metropolis-based shock jock who was given the ability to control electricity due to a freak accident at one of her Metropolis shows. Her radio show was dedicated to bashing upon Superman every night, claiming that the Man of Steel was only saving people in the name of grandstanding and showing off. Willis also showed disdain towards fellow radio broadcaster Billy Batson. However, her career as a shock jock was cut short when the owner of the station decided to turn the station into a country station. Miguel was also quite pleased that she was fired because his wife was saved by Superman.
Enraged at the loss of her job, Willis went to the top of the station where she was struck by lightning. She absorbed a large amount of energy from the bolt, which also gave her chalk-white skin and blue hair. Now calling herself Livewire, she set out to take her revenge on Superman.
