Neon (Celeste McCauley, a.k.a. Celeste Rockfish) is a fictional character in the 30th and 31st centuries of the DC Comics Universe, and a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. She first appeared after the "Five Year Gap" in Legion of Super-Heroes (vol. 4) #6, created by then-inker and co-writer Al Gordon.
Celeste is the niece of long-time Legion rival Leland McCauley. She studied at the Science Police Academy and eventually became a private detective, opening her own agency called the Rockfish Detective Agency. Dawnstar became her partner under the alias of "Bounty."
Sun Boy hired Celeste to investigate the hiring of Roxxas by Earthgov. This led her to the Legion of Super-Heroes, which was in the process of reforming. Later she confronted Roxxas directly and was severely injured. Her Green Lantern powers then emerged, healing her. Afterwards the Legion invited her to join the team and she accepted.
After an encounter with a fallen Green Lantern, the emerald energy from the Lantern's power ring reformed itself, creating a seemingly physical body for the consciousness of the rapidly dying Celeste. Unknown to Celeste, she had become a new kind of being, one composed of pure emerald energy. That energy gave her some of the powers of a Green Lantern, which she used mainly for flying and discharging force blasts.
