Rebecca Glass was a very intelligent CIA field operative. When she first heard of STAR labs' particle accelerator, she was greatly intrigued, and made plans to visit central city with two of her best friends, not knowing she'd end up stuck in a coma for eleven months, only to find her fellow operatives dead a few days later, and that she was no longer a relatively normal, nerdy CIA agent. At first she panics, isolating herself from others, trying to figure out what exactly is going on with her. After gaining some control, she tries to figure out what she is really capable of. That is, until she realizes she is being followed by a strangely fast man.
