- Did she create H.I.V.E.? Or did H.I.V.E. create her? It doesn't matter now. They call her their Queen. As she bathes in the techno-plasmic waste of every thought--every desire and every disappointment--of every citizen of Metropolis...she luxuriates in the knowledge she will soon release the entire world from the bondage of individual freedoms.
The Queen is an alien of unknown origin and a powerful telepath who is devoted to Brainiac - to the point that she claims to be his daughter. To the outside world, the Holistic Integration for Viral Equality was a social media company striving to bring the world together in unity, but secretly, they kidnapped people with psychic powers, hoping to use them to pave the way for Brainiac's invasion.
Her operations were exposed after a large battle between Superman, Hector Hammond and Psycho Pirate. She was seemingly killed in the battle, but later returned with new plots involving mind control.
