Caroline Sharp, better known by her alias, Formless Girl, is a fictional character which first debuted in 1956's "The Astounding Tales #32", conceptualized by artist George Sumner and having originally been conceived as a darker take on the superhero genre better defined as an "horror superhero", her character was later remodeled after Sumner's editors pressed him into changing her concept and execution to fit more with the "science-fiction superhero" mold, increasingly popular at the time of her creation. Regardless, the character still steared closely to her creator's original idea, her origin story being given as that of an agent pertaining to a secret governmental organization nominated Alpha-13, who, in a mention with the objective of thwarting the supervillain Madame Atom's plan of detonating a nuclear drill within a Ziggurat holding vast amounts of divine power within itself, thus taking the elemental force of an unspecified Sumerian god unto her body and becoming the most powerful being in the Universe. Attempting to deactivate Atom's drill by hand, Caroline eventually ran low on time and the drill exploded within the Ziggurat, embuing her with the powerful magic contained in the construction and drastically mutating her appearance into that of an inorganic, blue-skinned chimeric humanoid, as a result granting her the power to fully control her own atomic structure, thus turning her into the titular Formless Girl.
After her original run was cancelled in the early 1960s, the writer-artist team comprised of Fred Hand and Garry Streicher bought back the character as part of a new book called "ALPHA-13", depicting the homonymous organization, now consisting of a team of super-powered misfits, in a constant battle against Madame Atom and her plans to plunge the world into anarchy, with Caroline being referred to by the alias Chrysalis, the Eternity Girl for the first time here. Fast-forward to the future, and after multiple reboots and reimaginations of the character, Caroline, now seemingly self-aware as a character and free from the narrative, had become tired of being constantly rewritten and repurposed by her authors, seemingly escaping her story and travelling across the blank page of nothingness. As the continuity itself was being rebooted by the combined efforts of the Justice League and the Doom Patrol, Caroline integrated herself into the seemingly unchanged Earth-Prime.
