Ethel Lynn Niwtyn of Earth, in the 30th century. Ethel's unusual vision is the product of black market bio-engineering performed on her parents before she was conceived. Though they received bargain prices on liver replications. The treatments turned out to have a fatal flaw and their baby daughter was born with eyes on all sides of her head. Despite her unusual appearance, Ethel managed to lead a fairly normal life. She excelled in school; since her eyes work independently, she was able to do more studying than a normal human in the same amount of time and went on to get an advanced degree in education. She tried out for the Legion of Super-Heroes as Eyeful Ethel, yet they rejected her because her ability did not have much usefulness in battle, even in scouting.
Ethel later joined the Justice League of Earth, a group of Earth-born Legion rejects obsessed with spreading lies about Superman's origin and discrediting the Legion.
