Cindy Burman src

Cindy Burman, alias Shiv, is the daughter of the supervillain and war criminal Dragon King.

The Dragon King sent his daughter Cindy to be educated in the best schools in the world. Never wanting anything more than to please her father, she followed in his criminal footsteps as the deadly blade-wielding Shiv.

When Dragon King made their home in Blue Valley, Nebraska, Cindy and her father went up against the New Star-Spangled Kid (Courtney Whitmore) and her step-father and former All-Star Squadron member S.T.R.I.P.E. (Pat Dugan). In the course of the fight, her father was killed, leaving her with a deep anger and she swore revenge on Courtney.[1]

  • Shiv Costume: Armored costume containing a large arsenal of bladed weapons. The armor provided Shiv with superhuman strength, sufficient to throw an automobile.
