Gerry Conway & Pat Broderick

The daughter of the junior senator from New York, Lorraine Reilly was abducted by Multiplex on behalf of his employer, Henry Hewitt. Held as a hostage to force Senator Walter Reilly to vote for a bill that would grant Hewitt Industries a virtual monopoly on nuclear power research, Lorraine Reilly was subjected to experiments that would duplicate the nuclear accident that created Firestorm. Mentally conditioned by Hewitt, Reilly forgot who she was and her will was usurped to serve the criminal industrialist's commands.

Attacking Firestorm, Reilly was defeated and knocked unconscious by the Nuclear Man. When she awoke she had reverted to her normal human form and regained her memories. Later she once again faced Hewitt, now transformed into the superhuman Tokamak. Reilly and her father facing death, she transformed herself once again, becoming the heroic Firehawk.
