Light Lass

Ayla Ranzz, known originally as Lightning Lass also known as "Light Lass" is a super heroine in a future DC Comics universe. She is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes and was ranked 47th in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list. There have been three versions of Ayla since her original debut; these versions are separated by the events of both the Zero Hour and Infinite Crisis limited series. 
In this version I've chosen to draw, after Dream Girl had a vision foretelling that Ayla's lightning powers would eventually kill her. Nura (Dream Girl) used her advanced science to change Ayla's powers to gravity nullification. Her new ability to make objects super lightweight led her to her code name Light Lass.  
Ayla Ranzz (of the planet Winath, where twinning is normal) first appeared in Adventure Comics #308, (May 1963). She is the twin sister of fellow Legionnaire Garth (Lightning Lad) and the younger sister of the villainous Mekt (Lightning Lord). All three gained their lightning powers after being attacked by creatures called lightning beasts on the "lightning world" of Korbal. 
I was inspired by my stunning friend Tara Rice for this particular pose, she is an amazing model, actress and host. I know the original character version has shorter hair, but I decided to give her a new hair style. That's why I thought Tara's image was perfect for this. 
I used and flopped the same BG from the Lightning Lad piece, originally done by the Gelmi Art Studio, I also had to tone it down so it blends with the animation style a little better. 
Hope you like it.
