"Any luck with the regulator we took off cyber-woman?"
"Phew. Cyber-woman? I think I'm starting to like you guys."
—Rory Regan and Cisco Ramon[src]


Dr. Laura Washington, nicknamed Cyber-woman by Rory Regan, is a doctor that artificially augmented herself using technology stolen from Van Horn Industries.

Biography

Augmenting herself cybernetically, Laura Washington stole a regulator from Van Horn Industries and implanted it in herself. Sometime after, Team Arrow tracked Washington down to a warehouse, hoping to take the regulator for their own means. Wild Dog took her on, but she shot blasts of energy at him, forcing him to dodge them. Before she could accurately hit him, Wild Dog was saved by The Flash. The Flash proceeded to beat up Laura, before allowing Supergirl to hit her, sending Laura at him for a finishing blow.[1]
