Superpowers: Levitation and laughter
Nemesis: Morning meetings
Backstory: Fueled by the power of Mt Dew, Giggles discovered her levitation powers in 2010 by stumbling upon a hidden treasure in the land of Groupon – a pole fitness studio!!!. Using the pole, and later other aerial apparatuses, she discovered the ability to wield her power to uplift others and to help them unlock their own hidden potential.
