Janet Fals died during the Dark Multiverse invasion, but her father used his CIA connections to bring her back to life, releasing her remains to Civil Solutions, a futurist arms developer, who resurrected her with a new heart called the "Conflict Engine". The device requires her to start fights to stay alive, meaning she could not return to her old life or identity. She quenches her needs by fighting in underground matches as Firebrand.
During her work, she was attacked by a mysterious patient named Alden Quench, the Bad Samaritan, who tried to kill her to get the Conflict Engine out of her, but they were interrupted by the arrival of Neon, Viking Judge and Ascendant, who hunted the Bad Samaritan for his crimes across the Multiverse.
Powers and Abilities
- Conflict Engine: Firebrand is bonded to a machine called the Conflict Engine, which keeps her alive and grants her superhuman abilities but requires her to be part of a fight once every 24 hours to maintain power, even if it means starting a fight.
- Technological Reliability: Without the Conflict Engine, and without feeding it the conflict it uses as fuel, Janet would die.
- She had a flirtation with Joy, a female receptionist at V.A. Hospital in Mammoth City. Firebrand's creator Steve Orlando has confirmed that she is a lesbian.
