HistoryEdit

OriginEdit

A plant/human hybrid, she had ties to The Green, and through that to Swamp Thing, Floronic Man, and Poison Ivy. She was later killed.

FlashPointEdit

In the Flashpoint Universe, Black Orchid was a member of the original Secret Seven, but was killed years earlier in an incident that left Shade, the Changing Man as the team's sole survivor. Black Orchid seemingly returned years later, but was later revealed to be, in an ironic twist, a shape shifting monster that had simply stolen her identity.
