“Libby Lawrence is the descendant of the Revolutionary War heroine Miss Liberty. A champion athlete in school when her father was killed in 1939 by Nazis in Poland, Libby escaped by swimming the English Channel, becoming an international celebrity. Libby gained superpowers through a mystic link to the Liberty Bell and became Liberty Belle, a founding member of the All-Star Squadron. After being irradiated by one of the Nazi Baron Blitzkrieg’s weapons, Liberty Belle gained her sonic powers. She married fellow crime fighter Johnny Quick, and their daughter Jesse later became the new Liberty Belle following the Infinite Crisis. She serves as a member of the Justice Society of America alongside her new husband Rick Tyler (Hourman II).”
