Tina Grewal, has the ability to phase through solid objects. She thought this was really cool when she first developed it during puberty -- "just like Kitty Pryde!" -- until she also discovered that she could shoot energy beams out of her eyes. Then she spent two years having frequent migraines that would cause her to accidentally fall out of her bedroom and into the basement. She's a student in Metropolis, occasionally helps run the technology classes for the kids, and has more economic sense than the rest of her colleagues put together. She's all-but-married to Thomas.
ShadowStar has the natural ability to alter the molecular state of her own body to let her - or anything she touches - 'phase' through solid objects as if a ghost. If she does this to a person, they feel nothing more than a little lightheaded for a moment from the effect.
She later developed a secondary power of being able to generate focused beams of plasma energy through her eyes. The current theory is that this is an outgrowth of her powers which have a strong natural connection to the fourth state of matter: plasma.
Through training she has been able to use this connection to create a pyrotechnic reaction in objects or sense her surroundings with plasma wave pulses in a 'radar' like fashion. No harm comes to anything or anyone nearby when she uses this 'radar sense', which is her term for it. She can only cause the pyrotechnic reaction if she is 'phased'.
