Lightning Lady

Captain Victory was a comic book created, written and drawn by Jack Kirby. It was first published by Pacific Comics in 1981.
One of Pacific Comics first titles, it lasted thirteen issues, plus a special, through January, 1984.
In the last issues of the Pacific series, Kirby crafted an origin story for Captain Victory which he tied in to the New Gods comic book that he had written and drawn for DC Comics in the 1970s. It was suggested that Captain Victory was the son of Orion, of the New Gods. Orion was not specifically named, but a number of clues were planted, including equipment said to belong to Captain Victory's father that was identical to the astro-harness ridden by Orion in the earlier series. Additionally, Captain Victory's grandfather, Blackmaas, was illustrated only as a cast shadow, but a shadow that to many readers bore a resemblance to Orion's father, Darkseid.
