V. was raised by a pack of wolves in the harsh wilderness of New Zealand. This instilled in her a deep love of dogs, but the boys in the pack were not so accepting. They frowned upon her alpha tendencies. (The trauma of wolf rejection is directly responsible for her obsession with sparkly, Volvo-driving vampires.) Refusing to conform, she set off to live among her fellow Homo sapiens. Civilized by Wonder Woman reruns and her Philosophy studies, she remained a rebel at heart. V. met her iconoclastic soul-mates in Gail Simone’s Birds of Prey a decade ago. Seemingly validated, she has since voraciously read every comic book she could get her hands on. Nurturing her offspring and snapping her fingers in hopes of a “miracle” keep her plenty busy, but occasionally she can be overheard at the pub proclaiming, “I would have broken Max Lord’s neck, too!”
