Fire (DC)
Real Name: Beatriz Bonilla DaCosta
Search for 'Fire (DC)' on Amazon


Powers:
Originally Beatriz's only power, gained from a saturation by the organic energy source Pyroplasm, was the ability to breathe a jet of green flame from her mouth (this accident also permanently dyed her hair green as well). The fact that this wasn't terribly spectacular (the flame wasn't even a foot long) when compared to the abilities of other Justice Leaguers, especially when contrasted against Fire's bold and aggressive personality, was a minor running gag in early JLI stories. However the character proved popular and eventually earned an upgrade; during the Invasion cross-over event, the alien Dominators set off a "metagene bomb" in the upper atmosphere which affected all super-powered DC characters and, after a period of illness, Fire found her powers greatly magnified as an after-effect. The "new" Fire was now able to completely turn into a being of green flame, in which form she could fly and throw devastating blasts, similar to the Human Torch. Unfortunately, it took her some time to come to terms with her increased powers, and she often "flamed on" involuntarily when stressed or angry (and sometimes still does), a distressingly common event for a character depicted as having a tendency towards passionate outbursts.

Beatriz is also a skilled investigator and something of a natural seductress (or at least she's aware that her physical appearance grants her some degree of easy influence over others). Somewhat less frequently, she is shown to have a marketable fashion sense (having at times worked as a designer) and to have some resistance to mind control due to the fact that, as a native speaker of Portuguese, her mind is resistant to instructions given in English.

Bio:
An operative for the Brazilian government who was caught in a massive explosion which triggered her metagene, turning her hair green and giving her the ability to breathe green fire from her mouth. Calling herself Green Flame she joined the international hero group the Global Guardians on behalf of her country. When this group dissolved, she and her friend Ice Maiden moved to the Justice League, where they soon distinguished themselves. During a massive alien invasion of Earth, Bea's powers were changed - after recovering from a flu-like affliction, she discovered she could transform her entire body into a green flame-like substance, flying along with it. She served with the League for many years, but now bases herself in Brazil, where she is a media celebrity as well as a hero.

As depicted in The OMAC Project #4, it seems that after the dissolution of the Super Buddies Fire had returned to her work as detective and secret agent. In that role she helped Booster Gold and Guy Gardner to find the connection between Maxwell Lord and Blue Beetle's death. She then took part in an assault by her former teammates from Justice League International and the Super Buddies against a group of OMACs. Badly wounded, she was saved by the sacrifice of Rocket Red.

Guy Gardner and Booster Gold took her to a hospital. After recovering, Fire appears in The OMAC Project Special, as an agent of Amanda Waller.

One Year Later, she has become the Black King's Knight in the new ongoing Checkmate series. In the first issue of the series, Fire displays a notable change in her character as she is now depicted as an assassin and killer, a follow-up to the implication made by Amanda Waller in the OMAC Project Special that not only did she perform such duties during her secret agent days, but that she enjoyed killing. In issue 2 of Checkmate, however, it is indicated that Fire, while she will follow orders to kill, regrets taking part in a Checkmate mission in which as many as 50 Kobra personnel were killed, many immolated by Fire herself.

Notes:
Though not an official code name, Fire is also referred to as Black King's Knight as a member of Checkmate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_(comics)
