While on yet another disciplinary suspension for breaking the rules, she encountered Hawkman. The hero told her that she was a reincarnated Egyptian princess and that the two had been both heroes and lovers in their previous lives. She thought him insane and asked to be left alone. Surprised that she did not remember him, he agreed to leave, but insisted she accept a mace and flight harness, artifacts of her past life. She took the items just to be rid of him.

However, as time passed, she came to the realization that a hero could do things a police officer never could. They could work beyond the rules and do more to help people. She decided to put the equipment Hawkman had left to good use and became the heroine known as “Hawkgirl.”

Get an early look at Swamp Thing, the latest champion from Infinite Crisis – the free-to-play MOBA from Turbine based in the DC Universe! On Wednesday, December 17, players can step into a new protector role when Swamp Thing goes live in the game!

A brilliant chemist, Alec Holland had long been developing “a bio-restorative formula” which promised to solve food shortages forever. Tragically, thugs hired by a rival who wanted to steal the formula triggered an explosion in Alec’s lab, destroying it and killing Alec. The explosion saturated nearby plants with the experimental formula giving birth to the Swamp Thing.

Possessing Alec’s memories, the Swamp Thing initially thought he was Alec reborn and cursed the monster he had now become. However, in time he learned the truth: He was actually one in a long line of elemental protectors summoned by the Parliament of Trees. This group of sentient plants protected the Green, the force that created and sustained plant life on Earth. Swamp Thing embraced his role as protector and, thanks to the memories he inherited from Alec, expanded his charge to the protection of all life on Earth.

Swamp Thing can endure tremendous damage and is capable of complete regeneration. He also has control over plant life, and can command it to do his bidding.

When all hope seemed lost, Alura, Kara’s mother and leader of the Heralds, commanded her Flamebird mount to snatch Kara away. Unable to escape the beast’s talons, Kara watched helplessly as her mother was struck down. The servants of the Black closed in on her as the beast teleported to Earth, a planet in the lower realms.

Her home forever lost, Kara swore that no matter the cost, Rao’s last Herald would have revenge on the Black.

Infinite Crisis Champion Profile: Surrender to peace, when Starro debuts!

Get an inside look at Starro, the new champion from Infinite Crisis, the free-to-play MOBA from Turbine based in the DC Universe! On Wednesday, November 5, players can excel at pushing and controlling map lanes when this aggressive controller goes live!

Starro is a Star Conqueror. These nomadic and parasitic creatures roam the cosmos in two forms: motherstars and parasites. Motherstars are sentient, while parasites are extensions of the motherstar’s consciousness. A parasite attaches itself to other sentient creatures, allowing the motherstar to control that creature’s mind. Once controlled, the victims work toward growing more motherstars to go out and bring universal harmony to other planets—by conquering them.

Little did the Star Conqueror who came to be known as Starro know how difficult carrying that plan out on Earth would be!

Starro has little concern for what happens to the individuals it controls. They’re a tiny part of the whole. When Starro speaks to creatures it doesn’t control, it does so telepathically, urging them to join in universal harmony.

For millennia, the vampire Ra’s al Ghul used his League of Assassins to manipulate Earth-19 from the shadows. His daughter, Talia, also cursed with vampirism, desired her father’s power. All Talia’s efforts failed until she finally found the edge that she required, a man who was strong enough to challenge the Demon’s Head: Bruce Wayne.

Talia, knowing Bruce was Batman, spent years influencing him toward her ultimate goal of her father’s destruction. Yet she would leave nothing to chance. Talia created a child, the perfect union of her family’s vision and Bruce Wayne’s potential. She named the boy Damian, training him in secret before sending him to apprentice with her estranged lover, as Robin.

Here, once more, Talia’s plans met with frustration.

In the final confrontation between Batman and Ra’s al Ghul, Damian realized the depth of his mother’s depraved manipulation when Batman was infected by his grandfather. Damian watched as Batman, the man he loved and respected, became a ravening monster, succumbing to the curse of vampirism. The ashes of his father’s humanity kindled a burning certainty that the blood of al Ghul could only birth monsters.

Now, feeling the compulsion of his own vampiric curse, the young Damien fights a war to scourge the filth of vampirism from the world.

So desperate were the survivors that they decided to listen to the Joker and began building a new community within the bunker.

As the community prospered, the survivors increasingly followed the Joker’s orders without question, until they eventually had no will of their own. When the Joker commanded that his vessel be attached to the back of one of his minions, so that he could better see the world he was building, many vied for the honor.
