New Moon is a Member of the MoonDancers. A Pacifistic trio of women, with superhuman abilities, based around aspects of the moon. They have a goal to rid the world of Nuclear Weaponry, especially when it comes to the weaponizing of Space. She uses Delaying, hindering, and other nonlethal means to accomplish her goals.
She worked with the mysterious Japanese Scientist, Professor Nakamura.
New Moon and the Moondancers were created David Anthony Kraft, Frank McLaughlin, Jerome Moore, and L. B. Kellog
New Moon like her "sisters" are pacifistic in nature. During their "attack" on the Launchpad and in battling Batman, and Superman, they went out of their way to not harm their foes. Even when they were taken out of the fight because of it. New Moon herself seemed very concerned about Batman's welfare after Crescent Moon tossed a Gas Bomb at him. Later she then Questioned Professor Nakamura about the gas, hoping they didn't harm Batman permanently.
She seemed to be Intelligent, and caring, even if stalwart in her aim of World Peace.
Although smart, she seemed to be a bit gullible to being used by another, in pursuit of her aims, to the point of being tricked. But even after being tricked she still cared about Professor Nakamuras welfare.
She didn't have much in the way of Evolution. She seemed to be already set in her life's mission of world peace.

But a glancing blow by Crescent Moons Craft allows New Moon to Freeze Superman momentarily. But once again Batman easily overpowers her, and Superman breaks free within seconds.
Soon they are beset by a red laser energy beam that stuns them all for a moment by a now maddened Professor.

New Moon possessed the power of Directional Cryokinesis in the form of her Dark Moon Beam, a blackish blue-white beam that if struck by would chill, slow, and or freeze/encase the target in ice. A partial glancing blow could slow the targets movements.
It's possible she possessed other abilities not demonstrated, such as a resistance to chilling effects, and possibly a form of dark vision.
- Skills: Although not displayed. New Moon was more than a lackey and seemed to possess a high degree of Intelligence. New Moon seemed to have an understanding of Astronomy and lunar conditions. She was a young early 20'ish woman, possibly a college attendee or graduate.
- Fighting skills: New Moon was a pacifist and didn't believe in harming another being just delaying them. As such she possessed no skill or talent at physical combat. Batman was able to easily defeat her twice in physical combat with no resistance from her once grappled. She also preferred to engage her foes at range. Letting her Dark Moon Beams encase them before they got close.
