Part of the much-maligned New Blood crossover of 1993, little is known of her background, other than that she was bitten by an alien parasite.  Obscure even by New Blood standards, she was one of several heroes to unsuccessfully petition the Justice League for membership, and is almost certainly dead at the hands of Geoff Johns by now…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
