Kiran Singh is the teenage daughter of Vijay and Rani Sing, two prominent archaelogists from Delhi, India. Kiran visits London, England with her parents and both meets and befriends Cassie Sandsmark. The two children explore a nearby museum just before it is attacked by Lady Zand. Cassie reveals that she is Wonder Girl just as Kiran creates a golden costume and tells her new friend to call her Solstice. Together, the two fight off Lady Zand’s army of rock creatures but not before the villain herself is able to escape.
