On May 4, 2017, Vickie went to an ATM to withdraw money but accidentally caused an explosion that killed Grace Gibbons' parents; Vickie quickly escaped and told no one of the incident, though she did not know that people had died.
Years later, Vickie was targeted by a future Grace in her Cicada alias. Vickie was with John and Alice at the latter's party in an arcade when XS got Vickie away during the Flash's fight with Cicada and Team Flash had the Bolen family placed in a relocation program.
Powers and abilities
- Meta-human physiology: After Vickie was struck by the energy of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle Accelerator explosion, this altered her DNA and supercharged her cells, augmenting her physiology to access her new powers.
- Fragokinesis: Vickie has the ability to hyper-accelerate the molecules of any object she comes into contact with, causing an aggressive chain reaction which cumulates in an explosion. The energy of the explosion is released in the form of red lightning.
- Involuntary control: Unlike most meta-humans, Vickie cannot control her powers.
- Vickie's powers are similar to those of Plastique's.
