With these superpowers, she becomes famous as the superhero, VOLTA. Volta's main objective is to prevent Kelly (Jean Garcia), an ambitious engineer, from spreading evil in the country. On the other hand, Kelly has her alter ego. Celphora, wants to capture Volta to use her as a power source for her Telstra technology, which can endanger the lives of several human beings.
