History: Carol was once secretary for the Dan Dare Detective Agency, and she traveled widely with her boss, solving impossible cases across the country. In 1943 she and Dan were trapped on the island of Maloana in the South Seas in suspended animation when a spell cast by the island's shaman S’ville misfired. Bulletman, Bulletgirl and Atom Blake visited the island in 1985 and Atom cancelled the time-stop spell, releasing Dan and Carol and several other people, including Lance O'Casey and the shaman S'ville. Some time later, Carol was on a cruise with Lance and she was kidnapped by the Warrior of Wai, ruler of a subterranean kingdom. Somewhere in Wai's cavern, Carol fell into a sinkhole and breathed a combination of gasses that changed her, and eventually gave her powers. Now that she and Dan have returned to San Diego, they are setting up a new detective agency.
