I know you think Wally and Frankie just met, but their story goes long way back. Frances “Frankie” Kane grew up in Blue Valley, Nebraska and was a close childhood friend of Wally West, the third Flash. Kane’s powers began to manifest in adolescence, beginning with small objects that levitated in her presence. Her power manifested explosively one night while she, her father, and her brother were driving on a narrow mountain road. When her powers went out of control, the car fell off a cliff, and Kane’s father and brother were killed. Kane’s superstitious mother blamed her for this and the other eerie happenings around the house. Believing her daughter to be possessed by the devil, she spurned her. With the help of Wally and the Teen Titans, Frances was able to gain some control over her powers, and the two became lovers in college.

Frances Kane was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez. Her first appearance as Kane was in The New Teen Titans #17; as Magenta in Teen Titans Spotlight #16.
