    Lana robs banks with her mom Lori Baumgartner; it seems that she does all the work with her blast power. When they were arrested last time, Lana was separated from her mother, who was imprisoned. The judges believed that her mother influenced her to rob banks, as she's still under-age.


    Bombshell was created by Brian Michael Bendis and David Lafuente and first appeared in Ultimate (Comics) Spider-Man #2 (2009). She was part of the Ultimate Universe, but was transported to the Prime Marvel Universe (616) after the events of Secret Wars.
