    Grail was created by Geoff Johns for DC Comics' New 52 reboot. Her presence on Earth is given as the reason for Darkseid's invasion in the origin arc of the Justice League series, but she herself is never revealed to the reader. At some point, she was captured by A.R.G.U.S and held prisoner in a massive vault with Darkseid's omega symbol on the doors. Throughout all this, her appearance is never shown, but her confinement and subsequent escape is a prominent subplot of the Vibe series. She appears on-panel for the first time in Justice League #40, designed by Jason Fabok, though she first appears off panel via dialogue only in Forever Evil #7 and appears for the first time fully revealed in Divergence #1.

    Powers and Abilities

    As a hybrid of two powerful race and particularly as a Darkseid's daughter Grail possess powers strong enough to hurt Metron while sitting in his Mobius chair even when Anti-Monitor's antimatter could not. Grail was described as a planetary-level threat by A.R.G.U.S while they held her prisoner. Due to her few appearances most of her powers are still mystery, but as a New God/Amazon hybrid she possess at least following powers:

    • Superhuman Strength: As a New God/Amazonian hybrid Grail possess strength strong enough to overpower beings like Wonder Woman easily.
    • Superhuman Durability: Grail possess great durability against physical and energy attacks as she was able to fight against Wonder Woman and take punch and lightning attack from Shazam without any visible injury. She was also able to tank blast from Green Lantern without any discomfort.
    • Superhuman Speed: Grail's is able to move faster than even the finest human athletes as her fighting speed was at least a match against Wonder Woman.
    • Superhuman Stamina
    • Superhuman Agility/Reflexes
    • Healing Factor
    • Immortality: Grail is immortal and won't age beyond her prime. She cannot be hurt nor killed by conventional means.
    • Omega Beams: She has shown the ability to fire powerful red beams from her eyes that are either very similar or identical to her father's Omega Beams. These beams have been able to hurt Metron while sitting in his Mobius chair even when Anti-Monitor could not and break Wonder Woman's magical bracelets even while Darkseid could not.
    • Teleportation: Grail can seemingly also teleport between universes. Though seemingly to do so she has to find a certain frequency to ''lock into'' before she can teleport.
    • Energy Manipulation: She can also (possibly) absorb Green Lantern's willpower and even shut down or control Green power ring.

    Hand-to-Hand Combat (Advanced)

    Grail is also seemingly very talented and trained in martial arts as she was able to defeat whole Justice League with an axe.
