Harriett is actually the second person to carry the mantle of Friction. her uncle Brad was the original. Brad possessed a technologically advanced suit that created sparks of electricity when he moved, and then could store and fire the electricity in long bolts utilizing his boots, belt, chestplate, and gloves.

Harriett was the only person in the world who knew that Brad was moonlighting as Friction. She only knew because she caught him wearing the suit when she was 14 and he finally broke down and confessed to her. After years of being the shocking hero, Brad had come to understand the composition of his unique costume, and after Harriett’s pleas he finally agreed to create a second suit and allow her to be his sidekick.

And so it was that Amp was born. Brad and Harriett became legendary as a crime-fighting duo until Brad was paralyzed in a drawn-out fight with the sinister Fourth Reich. By this time Harriett was 18, and Brad deemed her worthy to begin a solo career, and carry the name Friction.

She did so with a heavy heart, but in honor of her uncle, Harriett lit up the streets of Ford City with her bright flashes of electricity in battle against the Fourth Reich. With the help of the Dogs of War, the Fourth Reich was defeated and detained.

This victory got her noticed by the Dynamo Council, and she was asked to join the team.
