Empowered by a mystical orb that allowed her to raise an army of undead, she returned as a dark agent of the Meridian, Nightwing's European opposite number. For that matter, Manhunter pursued her to get revenge on the criminals who brutalized her and her people. Manhunter's chased led her to accidentally kill Darkside's twin sister. However, the dead sister returned to life when Darkside rose her undead army.
