RIPTIDE COMIC

Riptide got her powers during an undersea accident that would have killed her if not for the mysterious Sea Witch. Her father, Storybook Smith, had carefully written a story on the origins of her powers many years earlier. Her father left before she was born, but she must have grown up with the story of her famous father and his book, which had been stolen.
When Leanna got her powers, she joined Youngblood. Originally she did it to make some quick money, but soon became an integral part of the team.
When Riptide agreed to pose nude in Pussicat Magazine, she was apparently fired from Youngblood, but after Crypt had destroyed part of Youngblood and Battlestone became leader, she was asked to join again.
During a Youngblood barbecue at the Marcus Langston/Sentinel household, Riptide found her father's missing book on Langston's shelves and took it. When Langston realized who had taken the book, he went to Riptide's room, while she was out walking, to take it back. Unfortunately Leanna came back early and surprised him. In the following fight, Langston killed her in cold blood, and tried to frame Knightsabre for the murder. Langston's plans were revealed by Toby King, who found the book, and Langston was put in the Hell of Mirrors in Supreme's Citadel.

GRIFTER COMIC

Grifter (Cole Cash) is a fictional comic book superhero who has appeared in books published by Wildstorm Productions and DC Comics. Created by artist Jim Lee and writer Brandon Choi, he first appeared in WildC.A.T.s #1 (August 1992), as a member of that titular superhero team, during the period when Wildstorm and its properties were owned by Jim Lee. In that incarnation, Grifter is a former government operative and member of the military unit Team 7 and the espionage agency International Operations.
In 1999, Lee sold Wildstorm to DC Comics, and ownership of all Wildstorm characters, including Grifter, transferred to DC Comics. His backstory and continuity remained the same, however, until DC's 2011 relaunch of their entire comics line, The New 52, which rebooted the continuity for most of its characters. Since then, the character has starred in his own DC series, and has also made appearances in numerous other DC titles, such as Voodoo, Legion Lost, Team 7, Animal Man and Deathstroke.
The character was also a cast member in the 1994 - 95 animated TV series Wild C.A.T.s, in which he was voiced by Colin O'Meara.
