Eve Brown was the WAC errand girl at the USAAF intelligence headquarters in Washington DC at the start of WWII, but after nearly being blackmailed into giving Axis agents she was discharged and began attending Holliday College.

Eve Brown met and began dating a man named Gross, who later turned out to be a Nazi spy and used her to get his hands on a sensitive intelligence report by threatening to reveal that she was dating a Nazi. In fear she handed over report, but the office quickly realized they had a spy in their midst. Her sister Lila realized it was Eve after finding a message from Gross and begged her to turn herself in, unfortunately Eve did not and the message Lila was holding was found out of context and taken from her by Diana Prince.[1]

Gross had Eve follow Steve Trevor to steal an envelope he was carrying and alert the Nazis to Steve's whereabouts, which they intended to use to ambush and kill him unbeknowst to Eve. When Eve grabbed the envelope and ran she ran headfirst into Etta Candy and the Holliday Girls who grabbed her and held her for Wonder Woman and the army.

After some deliberation Phillip Darnell decided not to imprison Eve so long as she attended Holliday College and made regular reports on her activities to the army. Her roommate Dorothy Lord and she were falsely implicated as Nazi spies by Paula von Gunther in a ploy by the Nazi spymistress to gain her own freedom and both girls were arrested and imprisoned without questioning given Eve's past. Wonder Woman later proved the accusations to be false.[2]

  • This version of Eve Brown, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
