Designer's Notes: As she's been twisting men around her fingers since she was old enough to be interested in them, Lorelei's origin seems to be "she was born that way," which would make her a current Champions Universe mutant. People wanting to use her in the CU should add the "mutant" Distinctive Feature and possibly a Hunted by PSI. Characteristics-wise, I'd drop her EGO and her PRE, since as it stands, both are higher than Menton's, who strikes me as a benchmark for this sort of thing. Granted, one could keep her EGO at 33, and just state she's "untrained" and thus her sheer raw willpower means nothing in the face of Menton's wider skill set (besides, Menton does have that +10 with his mental powers going for him). Oh, and drop her 70 END to something realistic. It's a hold over from 3rd Edition days when you paid 1 END per 5 Active Points.
Power and Skill wise, Lorelei has lots of room for expansion. Her elemental control could see more slots in it—such as Telepathy, Mind Control based on empathy, and even Transform BOECV allowing her to alter memories. She also needs a variety of high society skills, such as Conversation, High Society, and Seduction. Wealth would help, as would a Contact with the local city's crime boss, since her origin include a comment to that effect. The Superworld character sheet gives her an armored jacket, which the Champions character sheet leaves out.
