AliasesSalem the Witch-Girl

Salem the Witch Girl is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. She is the sidekick and apprentice of the original Doctor Fate.

Salem Rula Nader, introduced in "The New Golden Age" #1, is the daughter of an Armenian-American man and a woman who escaped Limbo Town. Affected by the Limbo Town Curse, Salem unwittingly causes misfortune to those she interacts with. In 1940, she encountered Doctor Fate, who was immune to the curse, and together they thwarted Wotan's plot. Becoming Doctor Fate's sidekick, Salem adopted the name "Salem the Witch Girl" and was aided by her black cat familiar named Midnight and a sentient broomstick named Sweep.[1]

In 1941, Salem the Witch Girl was with Doctor Fate when they found Mister Miracle fighting Solomon Grundy at the time when his Justice Society Dark teammates Zatara and Diamond Jack are having a spat. After Solomon Grundy is chained up, Mister Miracle states to Doctor Fate and Salem the Witch Girl that they should apprehend Bride of Grundy. Salem the Witch Girl then starts to ask Doctor Fate about her Limbo Town curse.[2] Doctor Fate tirelessly searched for a way to free Salem from the Limbo Town Curse. However, on the day Inza Cramer was nearly killed by the curse, Salem mysteriously vanished, potentially taken back to Limbo Town. Doctor Fate, with assistance from the Justice Society Dark, attempted to locate her but was unsuccessful.[1]

In the final issue of "Flashpoint Beyond", Salem was among the thirteen missing Golden Age superheroes found in the Time Masters' capsules. When the capsules failed, they were transported back to their respective time periods as history reshaped around them.[3] Salem was among the Lost Children on Orphan Island, expressing frustration at their inability to escape. During an attack on Childminder's castle, she utilized her magic to save members of the Newsboy Legion. Accused by Cherry Bomb of self-interest, Salem engaged in a brief altercation until Stargirl intervened. Later, when Stargirl and Red Arrow's group reunited, Salem and the others were subdued by the Hourman android, who claimed to be rescuing them from "complete obliteration." Ultimately, with help from Corky Baxter, everyone was freed.[4][5][6]

Salem the Witch Girl later met Khalid Nassour where he tells her that Kent Nelson was his great-uncle and that there were other Doctor Fates before him. While mentioning about the Limbo Town curse, Salem is reluctant to allow Khalid to do an attempt to break it.[7]

Developing the power to control sand, he sought revenge and crossed paths with Firestorm.[9] Firestorm thought that Sand Demon was Martin Stein, who had become too crazy to reason with. He used his powers to overheat Sand Demon enough to turn him into glass, which shattered when it hit the floor.[10]

The Teen Titans later found evidence to clear Risk's name.[16]

Scream Queen[edit]

Creators: Len Kaminski and Anthony Williams. First appearance: Showcase '96 #11 (December 1996).

Nina Skorzeny, a.k.a. the Scream Queen, was the vampire lead singer of Scare Tactics.

A member of the Skorzeny clan of vampires in Markovia, Nina's family was wiped out by a group of vampire killers called the Graveyard Shift. The group was responsible for many vampire concentration camps as they attempted to exterminate all the vampires in Markovia. Nina was able to survive their efforts and escaped to America. This left her with a deep distrust of humans, whom she called "breathers" or "normals."

After making it to America, she was captured by R-Complex, a government agency that subjected her to numerous experiments. She was eventually rescued by the efforts of Arnold Burnsteel and Fate. The pair also freed Fang, Slither, and Gross-Out. Burnsteel suggested the group form a band to serve as cover while they try to outrun R-Complex agents.

The Scream Queen met Catwoman on one occasion. The pair battled Graveyard Shift members and an elderly vampire in Gotham City. Nina was forced to kill the vampire to save Catwoman's life. She felt some guilt over killing a member of her kind to save a human, but the pair had bonded, and Catwoman became one of the few humans that the Scream Queen saw as a friend.

Eventually, the Scream Queen began to change her view of her Scare Tactics teammates, finally seeing them as friends. Following Slither's death, Nina arranged for the group to take his ashes and throw them in his father's face. She also bit and sucked all the alcohol from Burnsteel's system when he got drunk to deal with his grief. Following Gross-Out's transformation and departure from Earth, the group was left with only three members. They vowed to carry on, however, and set out to search for new members.

The Scream Queen first appeared in DC Rebirth Suicide Squad (vol. 5) Annual #1 (October 2018).

Star Sapphire[edit]

Star Sapphire is the name of several fictional characters in DC Comics; many of them are villainous, and all connected in origin. Within DC continuity, an immortal race of warrior women (the Zamarons) were depicted as having the ancient tradition of choosing physically identical mortals from across the cosmos to serve as the host body for their queen. The woman chosen to serve this queen is called Star Sapphire. She is given the queen's symbolic weapon: a crystal resembling an actual star sapphire that grants the user powers similar to the power ring of Green Lanterns.[49]

The Star Sapphires are one of the seven Corps empowered by a specific color of the emotional spectrum within the DC Universe. Though their roots can be traced back to the earliest appearances of the Star Sapphire queens, they have entered into a significant plot role as part of the 2009–2010 Blackest Night crossover event.[50] First formed by the Zamarons at the conclusion of the Mystery of the Star Sapphire storyline running in Green Lantern (vol. 4) issues #18–20 (May–July 2007), their abilities come from violet power rings which wield the power of love. Initially the members of the Star Sapphires were only depicted as being females, during the Blackest Night panel at Comic Con International 2009, Geoff Johns explained that: "anyone can join, but most men are not worthy."[51] More recently male recruits were shown among the Star Sapphires when Wonder Woman visited their home planet.[52]

The original Star Sapphire's powers are vast. She is equipped with an arsenal of weapons, including a replicate Zamaron star sapphire, of unknown origin. She also has a variety of personal powers, though whether they stem from herself or her personal armament is unclear. She is also able to access the memories of the Zamorans regarding the Star Sapphire gem, such as the experiences of other wearers. As with the powers of the woman bearing the title of Star Sapphire, the limitations of the Star Sapphire gem are also unclear. Psychologically, the women serving as Star Sapphire have displayed a bizarre preoccupation with gender, suspected of reflecting a pathological fear of men. They also have had a less than accurate grasp of the variations in physics between dimensions. They are sometimes foiled primarily due to their own overconfidence. The Star Sapphire gems used to power the original incarnations of Star Sapphire were used by the Zamarons to create the main violet Power Battery.[53] invulnerability, light speed, superhuman strength and telekinesis.

Golden Age Star Sapphire[edit]

The first version of the character appears in All-Flash Comics #32 (Dec–Jan 1947) and Comic Cavalcade #29 (Oct–Nov 1948) and battles the Golden Age Flash.[54] This Star Sapphire claims to be a queen from the 7th Dimension, and attempts to conquer Earth by destroying all the plant life, which would cause the world to run out of oxygen.

A later retcon connects her with the Zamaron Star Sapphires, explaining that she had been chosen as Queen of the Zamarons, but had proved unworthy, hence her banishment to the 7th dimension.[55] In this story, she attempts to manipulate Carol Ferris into using the Star Sapphire stone to destroy the Zamarons. The Flash is able to break the connection. This was the Golden Age character's sole modern appearance.

Carol Ferris[edit]

Dela Pharon[edit]

Dela Pharon was introduced as the third woman to hold the position of Star Sapphire in Green Lantern (vol. 2) #41 (December 1965). Technically speaking, however, Carol Ferris simultaneously appears as Star Sapphire in the same issue.

In the story, Ferris is injured testing out one of her new flying machines, and is brought to the hospital for treatment. However, she awakens and finds herself drawn away from the hospital. It is shown that Ferris is being lured off by the Star Sapphire gem, and upon finding it she once again takes on the mantle of Star Sapphire. As Star Sapphire she returns to pursuing her quest to marry Green Lantern; however, conflict arises with the arrival of an alien woman who also appears to be the Zamaron's queen and Star Sapphire. Jordan discovers Ferris' transformation upon finding her fighting the second, alien, Star Sapphire. The Zamarons arrive to meet Jordan and explain that Dela Pharon (from the planet Xanador) is the woman that Ferris is fighting.[56]

Before the events of the issue, the Zamarons chose Pharon as their new queen and recipient of the Star Sapphire, but a dissenting group of Zamarons claimed that Ferris would have made a superior queen. Angered by the opposition, Pharon travels to Earth and attacks Ferris in retaliation (which was the cause of her aircraft malfunction). Recognizing the attack provokes Ferris to become Star Sapphire again and defend herself. At the conclusion of their duel, Ferris appears to be the victor and leaves to challenge Jordan. Following his defeat, she forces him to travel with her to Zamaron and become her husband. Before the wedding, Jordan discovers that the woman he believed to be Ferris is really Pharon in disguise. Jordan finds the real Ferris living Pharon's life on Xanador, and brings her to Zamaron. He defeats Pharon and returns with Ferris to Earth without her retaining any knowledge of the events that transpired.[56]

Dela Pharon reappears in a story told by Carol Ferris during the Mystery of the Star Sapphire story line. She continues to serve as Star Sapphire after her first appearance, and eventually both falls in love with and enslaves the Green Lantern of Xanador. After becoming his mate, she kills him and encases their planet in violet crystal so that they will be together until the end of time.[57] This presumably leaves her encased in crystal during the events currently enfolding in Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. However, promotional imagery included in Blackest Night #0 (March 2009) lists her as a prominent member of the newly formed Star Sapphires. What role she will play among the corps is unknown.

Deborah Camille Darnell[edit]

Remoni-Notra, of the planet Pandina, is chosen by the Zamarons to be their queen, an honor previously bequeathed upon Earth's Carol Ferris, but refuses. Remoni-Notra is given one of the five star sapphire gems and is told of the existence of the other four. Using her powers, she comes to Earth to locate and steal Carol Ferris' gem and joins the Secret Society of Super Villains as the new Star Sapphire in hopes of finding a clue to the gem. On Earth, she takes the name Deborah Camille Darnell and becomes a stewardess at Ferris Aircraft, in hopes of getting closer to Carol and the Star Sapphire gem. As Star Sapphire, Darnell can use her gem of power to fly and to hurl blasts of force nearly equal to the power of a Green Lantern's ring. Moreover, the Sapphire bestows upon her a certain amount of invulnerability and allows her to survive in airless space.

As Debbie Darnell, she often dates long-time hero Captain Comet. She also portrays a French real estate agent named Camille on Earth. She is later mind-wiped and put in a coma. She was most likely mind-wiped at the request of Green Lantern Hal Jordan to protect Carol Ferris. She is revived by her teammates in the Secret Society.

In Geoff Johns' run on "Green Lantern", her origin is rebooted: she is presented as a flight attendant who dated Hal Jordan when he broke up with Carol Ferris and, thus, was chosen to be the new Star Sapphire, since the crystal is used to possess Hal's girlfriends. Later, in Infinite Crisis #6, several magic-users assemble at Stonehenge and summon the Spectre. He singles out Darnell, condemns her, transforms her into a star sapphire and shatters her, killing her.

Jillian Pearlman[edit]

When Larfleeze attacks Oa in the aftermath of the First Lantern's defeat and the death of the Guardians, his constructs kill a Star Sapphire who arrived to aid in the defense of the planet. The fallen Sapphire's ring flies to Nol-Anj's cell, where it declares her eligible to become a Star Sapphire herself. Nol-Anj persuades Cossite that the ring's presence is proof that her love for him is true, and he readily opens the door and allows her to slip the ring onto her fingers and acquire its power. To his understandable shock, she then kills him, declaring that the love in her heart that the ring detected was not for him, but for the Clann she belonged to, that accepted her when no one else would.

After Larfleeze's attack is thwarted, Hal and the rest of the Lanterns discover Cossite's body and learn of Nol-Anj's escape, who had by then commandeered a spacecraft and left for space sector 0563. This is the home base for her clann, the Braidmen, a group of scavengers and contraband pirates, of which she is the "Prixiam". As Prixiam, she serves similarly as would a queen. The love for her clann is so potent, Nol-Anj has been shown to have the ability to extend her violet powers to shatter green constructs and summon/control multiple members of the Braidmen across great distances.


Starling is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

In September 2011, The New 52 rebooted DC's continuity. In this new timeline, Evelyn Crawford is introduced as part of the relaunch of Birds of Prey as a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant and markswoman who has been friends with the Black Canary since they worked undercover together at the Penguin's Iceberg Lounge.

In season five, she joins Queen's team of vigilantes as "Artemis", but eventually betrays them to serve as Prometheus' double agent upon learning of Queen's violent past. As part of Prometheus' plans, Evelyn frees Laurel Lance's villainous Earth-2 counterpart before joining her and Talia al Ghul in kidnapping Queen's friends and family to hold them hostage on Lian Yu. While working to stop Prometheus, Queen throws Evelyn in a cage, intending to come back for her. However, Prometheus detonates several explosives he planted on Lian Yu and no mention of Evelyn's survival or death has been mentioned in subsequent seasons, leaving her final fate unknown.

AliasesJared Stevens, Fate, Repariman of Reality

Jared Stevens is a character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, debuting in Fate #0 in 1994, created by John Francis More and Anthony Williams. The character was created as the fifth incarnation of the Doctor Fate character although he instead is referred to simply as Fate. The character differs from all other incarnations, having a radical re-designed and re-imagined as a demon hunter.[64]

Fictional history[edit]

Jared's background & origin[edit]

In the original Fate series, Jared's background and origin details him to be the son of an accountant and a criminal mother who lived in Boston.[65] Eventually, his mother left for Europe for reasons unknown during his adolescent years, leaving Jared in the care of his strict and overbearing father until he was sixteen, opting to instead live with his mother in Europe. While they travelled around the world, he eventually distanced himself from her, no longer wanting to support her criminal endeavors and instead went to law school for a time.[66] However, wanting a more exciting life, Jared joins the Institute for Phenomenological Study as an adventurer. In Mexico, he gets caught in a race for a mystical artifact at the Temple of the Mist, siding with natives and revolutionaries. In the temple, he frees a mysterious female entity who saves his life, leading to his first notable supernatural experience, which he initially considers a mass hallucination.[65]

Over time, the character transitions into a smuggler of artifacts and acquires the Helmet of Fate, the Cloak of Destiny, and the Amulet of Anubis. While the Nelsons, who were after the artifacts, are killed by demons sent by their enemy Kingdom, it is revealed that Jared has been chosen as an agent for the Lords of Order. During the battle, the Amulet of Anubis explodes, granting him the ability to see the fate of others through an ankh tattoo and leaving a scar on his arm. When Nabu attempts to enslave him as he did with Kent Nelson, Jared resists due to the power of the Amulet and rejects Nabu. This leads him to become a demon hunter and an agent of balance for the Lords of Order and Chaos called Fate.

Tenure as Fate[edit]

During his time as Fate, he teams up with the supernaturally powered team of fugitives Scare Tactics, Etrigan the Demon and other forces to combat threats from the realm of Gemworld.[citation needed] During his brief time as Fate, he is assisted by Arnold Vernsteel in the Fate series and in the rebooted Book of Fate series, he is instead assisted by the character's sibling, Vera Burnsteel, both whom are accomplished hackers who seek to help him understand his role through occult research. Jared is later murdered by Mordru, who attempts to kill all the agents of the Lords of Chaos and Order and claim Fate's artifacts for himself. Jared's equipment reverts to its original forms and returns to the Tower of Fate upon his death. His tenure is defined later to have lasted at least over a year before he was succeeded by Hector Hall.[67]

Elinore Stone[edit]

Elinore Stone is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. She was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez and first appeared in New Teen Titans #7 (1981).

Born to wealthy billionaire Henry Strauss and Rebecca Stauss, the latter of whom was abusive to his wife and Eric himself. Selected as a future agent of order, Eric grew up aware of the existence of the Lords of Order, giving him a level of enhanced mystical awareness although it resulted in him possessing an abnormal personality that made him unable to interact with children his age. He also possessed a special connection to his stepmother Linda due to the both of them being selected as future agents of order.[68]

At the age of ten, Eric was chosen as Nabu's next agent to inherit the Doctor Fate mantle, subquentionally aging up the boy in a similar manner to Nelson before although this time, Eric's mind did not mature.[68] He would act as Doctor Fate alongside Linda, the two often merging to become Doctor Fate. Nabu goes on to possess Kent's corpse to personally advise them.[68] The three of them are soon joined by a friendly demon called Petey and lawyer Jack C. Small.[69][68]

Over time, despite Eric's mind being similar to a child of ten years old, Linda developed romantic feelings for her stepson while Eric reciprocated such feelings. Eric is eventually killed on Apokolips during a battle with Desaad, forcing Linda to become Doctor Fate on her own.[70] Linda is killed soon afterward by the Lords of Chaos. Eric and Linda's souls were reincarnated in the bodies of Eugene and Wendy DiBellia while Nabu reincarnates in Eugene and Wendy's unborn child.[71]
