Barry Allen and Tina McGee[src]

Biography

Christina was born to Jocelyn Weller and her husband. She had a sister that lived upstate.[2] When she was thirteen years old, her mother left her father, which devastated him. Tina stayed with and took care of him. This also left Tina feeling that her mother resented her for not going with her when she left and that she didn't think that her mother wanted to be burdened with a daughter while she was finding herself.[3]

Christina was friends with both Carl Tanner and David during college, where both David and Carl were rivals for her affections, though ultimately she married David.[4] At some point, she worked with Dr. Jason Rossick on a robotics project for the government of which Colonel Christine Powers was the NSIA project coordinator. Powers was the reason that she left the project.[5]

In 1989, Christina's husband died; due to experimenting on himself with a special enzyme he had discovered; due to his refusal to both test on other human subjects and lack of funds for research. He was found by his wife the next morning.[6]

The Monitor's invasion
