    Origin

    During a party at Terror Castle, freelance artist June Moone stumbled across a secret chamber that held a being named Dzamor, who granted her magic powers in order to become his mystical defender of justice and rid the world of all evil. With the word "Enchantress", June could transform into a powerful witch with the potential for massive magical abilities.

    Creation

    Enchantress was created by Bob Haney and Howard Purcell.

    Character Evolution

    Silver Age / Earth-One

    In her first appearances, the Enchantress was a hero, as June Moone summoned the Enchantress to do good and battle evil.

    Dzamor informed June that when a certain astronomical alignment with the Moon occurred, the Enchantress would gain the necessary power to accomplish her goal. Unfortunately, Supergirl had to move the moon on one of her many capers, so the event never occurred for the Enchantress. This caused the Enchantress to snap and go mad, leading a life of evil. She was eventually jailed, before the event of Crisis on Infinite Earths.

    Enchantress is still locked up in jail when she offered a chance to join the Suicide Squad which she accepted. June Moon wanted the Enchantress personality to leave her because it was slowly corrupting her normal life and she felt that the Suicide Squad had the resources to help her out. It's worth noting that the Enchantress has held a position of misandry, a deep hatred of men.

The Enchantress aspect of her creates a sanctuary inside a magic envelope housed in a remote farmhouse, from where she causes general chaos in neighboring towns. The Justice League attempts to stop her but is defeated by magical crooked witches' teeth. Madame Xanadu attempts to form a group that can stop her.

    It was eventually revealed that the Enchantress was actually a being called the Succubus, and was related to the Incubus, the brother of her teammate Nightshade. Nightshade was originally meant to inherit the Succubus persona, but Dhazmor tried to make the Succubus a force for good and gave it to June Moon that fateful night in Terror Castle. Nightshade finally inherited the Succubus, leaving June Moon without the Enchantress. Finally losing that evil side of her, June felt only misery. She did not want to really give up that power and even made an attempt on Nightshade's life to get the power back, shooting her with a stolen gun in Belle Reeve.

    However, June Moon had the Enchantress power all along. Eventually, the Enchantress part of June Moon was exorcised and killed by Sebastian Faust. However, she never really died and was transformed into a being called Anita Soulfeeda, a succubus who was working on Earth. When Anita Soulfeeda was revealed to be the Enchantress, she merged with June Moon, becoming a figure named Soulsinger. Soulsinger faded, leaving a benevolent Enchantress behind.

    When the Spectre and Eclipso went on a murderous rampaging, killing all magic users due to their being heretics to his god, the Enchantress and members of the Sentinels of Magic joined the team of Shadowpact to stop him.

    Ragman says no and kisses her. She tells him never to do that again or else. She then tells everyone else he kissed her. They teleport to the fight with Spectre and Captain Marvel. While everyone is fighting Eclipso, Enchantress is hacking into the magic stream which Captain Marvel gets his powers and adds her own hoping to keep him alive longer.

She then turns evil from all the magic and fights Swordsman and Ragman until Blue Devil comes and punches her. Enchantress then with the others are in the Oblivion Bar. When Chimp brings Lori Enchantress asks what can she do that she cant sensing no magic in her. She also tells everyone that she wouldn't be able to do that again because the next time Spectre will look for it and cut the stream of energy to Captain Marvel. After that adventure, Enchantress and Shadowpact are called by Phantom Stranger to a town which is trapped in a bubble of blood.

    Madame Xanadu gathers Deadman, Shade, Zatanna, and John Constantine to defeat Enchantress after June Moon, her "good half" escapes her. Enchantress becomes an evil, twisted version of herself and creates madness all over the planet attempting to get June Moon back.

    She tracks down Deadman, who has become determined to help June escape. They eventually hold up at a gas station against evil June Moon copies attempting to get her back. Shade appears with a portal for Deadman. Deadman jumps in but realizes June cannot follow because the portal was designed specifically for Deadman.

    June is cornered when John Constantine finds her outside the gas station. John reveals the strange words running through June's mind is actually a fragmented spell; the spell Madame Xanadu used to separate June Moon from the enchantress to bring the team together. Constantine speaks the entire spell, sending June back to the Enchantress and returning her to normal, much to the anger of Deadman.
