Diane Meade, the daughter of the Middleton police commissioner, passed the test to qualify as "emergency policewoman".

Despite her father's concerns, the police captain assigned her to accompany police detective John Jones on a trial assignment. Fortunately, Jones—who was actually J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter—was able to protect her and solve a case as well. At this time, the world had not yet heard of the Martian Manhunter, since he operated in secret.[1]

Some time later, after the Martian Manhunter's identity had been revealed to the world,[2] Meade returned and was permanently assigned as John Jones' partner. In this role, she occasionally suspected that Jones was actually the Martian Manhunter, but he always managed to trick her into doubting her suspicions.[3]

When the creature Zook arrived from another dimension, he was adopted as a pet and assistant by the Martian Manhunter. Diane Meade became quite fond of him.[4]

Later, J'onn J'onzz faked the death of his alter-ego John Jones. Diane Meade attended Jones' funeral, believing him dead.[5]
