The nine-year-old daughter of Ronald Morning, an assistant of the temporal criminal Chronos I, Lori Morning despised the restrictions of childhood.

To travel through time Chronos required the youth of others to prevent his own rapid aging. Morning volunteered to sacrifice her childhood without her father's permission.

When the Legionnaire, XS, was rescued from the time-stream by Chronos he saw a method of achieving time travel without the effects of aging by using 30th Century technology. Using Morning as a means to travel into the distant future she was aged into a young adult, and stranded after the temporal criminal was defeated by the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Morning was returned to her previous age by siphoning off the chronal energies she had absorbed. After coming in contact with the Time Trapper, he gave Morning a mystical HERO Dial which allowed her to transform into a random hero for one hour.

Morning lost her powers when the HERO Dial was sacrificed to escape a rift in space from consuming members of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
