Grail is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.[1]

Publication history[edit]

Grail first appeared in Justice League (Vol 2) #40 (June 2015) as part of the Darkseid War storyline. She was created by writer Geoff Johns,[2] and intended as a sort of link between the "Old Gods" of DC Comics and the New Gods.[3]

Fictional character biography[edit]

Grail is the daughter of Darkseid, prophesied to cause great destruction at the behest of the Anti-God.[4] Her character is portrayed as a sort of opposite number to Wonder Woman, as they were both born at the same time on the island of Themyscira.[5]

She murders Hercules, taking his life source for her father.[6] Still later she invades and becomes ruler of Themyscira.[7]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Grail is a race of powerful beings known as New Gods. Inherited from her father, Grail has a form of the Omega Beams, energy that she fires from her eyes or hands as either a concussive force or a disintegrating energy which is capable of erasing living objects and organisms from existence. These beams stem from a cosmic energy source called the "Omega Effect". The Omega Beams can also resurrect fallen beings previously killed by them, depending on the Dark Lord's will. In addition to this Grail has shown superhuman strength, speed and durability, proficiency in ritual magic as well as various psionic powers such as corrupting Green Lantern Ring wielders use of willpower.[8]

In other media[edit]

  • Grail appears as a playable character in Lego DC Super Villains, voiced by Vanessa Marshall.
