"I'm Madelyn Spaulding, and you WILL vote for me..."

Madelyn Spaulding was a student at Dakota Union High and a powerful Bang Baby.


Madelyn was a socially active student, a very political busybody. On the night of the Big Bang, she was out in the docks, interviewing a homeless man for an extra credit essay on the homeless problem in Dakota. Though she did not realize it at first, she gained the ability to read and control people's minds.

Madelyn later ran for freshman president against Joey Bombora and Richie Foley. She used her powers to get people to vote for her, and controlled Joey on stage into stepping out of the competition and endorsing her. When Static intervened, she found his electric powers blocked hers. But she did learn that Static was really Virgil Hawkins. She led a mind-controlled raid onto him, but when the two finally came against each other, she was quickly defeated. A lightning blast to her brain knocked her unconscious, and she was taken to the infirmary.

In the hospital, doctors examined her and noted that her memory seemed partly gone, including her memory of Static's true identity, and her powers seemed to be gone, too. She was released and went to work for a comic store. But soon she found that her powers were not truly gone: the electrocution by Static had augmented them, changing her telepathic powers to telekinesis. She swore revenge against Static as soon as she discovered this.

Madelyn freed the Meta-Breed from prison, and took over control of the gang. This did not sit well with Ebon, who criticized her every move. They wreaked havoc at City Hall, but soon Static showed up, with help from Gear and She-Bang. Madelyn and the Breed fled when Talon was accidentally injured by one of Hotstreak's fireballs, making Ebon even angrier. To make up, Madelyn single-handedly caught She-Bang and brought her to the hide out in the junkyard. Though this soothed Ebon, She-Bang decided to heat things up by goading Ebon. As a second-in command, she told him, he was the laughing stock of all the Bang Babies in Dakota. She-Bang's plan worked: Ebon rose up against Madelyn, though the fight was brief. Madelyn took down Ebon with little difficulty.

Static and Gear showed up and freed She-Bang, and Madelyn took on Static. Hovering in the sky and deflecting all of his attacks, she boasted invulnerability. Static, however, laid a positive charge on the junk near Madelyn, putting her right on the path of a negative lightning from the sky. She was incapacitated and taken into police custody.

It is unknown what happened to her after that as she never appeared again.
