HISTORY

Tasmia Mallor, a champion of Talok VIII during the 30th-31st century, gained shadow powers (possibly connected to the Darklands that also powers the Shade, Obsidian, and others) in her youth and later joined the Legion of Super-Heroes. In recent months, she found herself powerless, which could be an indication of something bad happening on her home planet. Tasmia is a somewhat grumpy and egocentric hero. She is the descendant of 20th century heroines Lyrissa and Lydea Mallor.
