    Origin

    Roulette is the owner of meta-human fight clubs where superhumans battle each other for sport. Her grandmother was the original Roulette who battled the original Mr. Terrific, while dating his brother Ned. As Veronica grew up she at some point learned of her legacies and came to believe Mr. Terrific to be her grandfather rather than granduncle and believed the current Mr. Terrific unworthy of the name, she then battled the JSA and it's members multiple times. Heroes that have died while battling in her ring are the third Firebrand, the first Maxi-Man, FlyBoy, Ram of the New Guardians, Pterodon, Behemoth, Gorgon, and Prometheus of The Hybrid and Impala of the Global Guardians.

    She met Green Arrow when he was down on his luck and gave him a red pill to swallow. However, the pill caused him to fall unconscious. When he awoke, Green Arrow found himself lying in a coffin. Roulette then helped him to escape, in the episode she is more of a mercenary than boss of any sort.
