Dragonwing last edited by Guru_Crack on 08/14/18 09:48AM View full history


Little is known of Dragonwing's life before enrolling in the freshman class of the Legion Academy. Marya joined with the intent of becoming a Legionnaire one day, though as a self-proclaimed cynic she often bemoans the low probability of that even happening. Despite her pragmatism, she grows angry when the senior class of students are all rejected by the Legion and assumes that her own chances of joining the team are non-existent. 


Dragonwing was created by Paul Levitz  and Phil Jimenez 

Character Evolution

Retroboot / New Earth

She is closest to fellow Academy student Chemical Kid, encouraging his irresponsible behavior and accompanying him on many of his joyrides of spending Chemical Kid's father's money. Much of Marya's tough or bitter persona may be a front or coping mechanism; she is accommodating of naive, new student Glorith and mourned the loss of Variable Lad despite their lack of strong friendship.
