Monroe was one of many villains invited to join the Secret Society of Super-Villains by the Crime Syndicate, an evil version of the Justice League from Earth 3. The Weasel was among the crowd of Society members who attended a meeting outside the destroyed Justice League Watchtower hosted by the Syndicate. The Syndicate announced to the villains that they had defeated the Justice League, and therefore they were free to do as they saw fit with the planet.
Monroe subsequently joined the Menagerie, a group of animal-themed villains led by Cheetah that made their base in Central Park, New York City. He attempted to ambush Colonel Steve Trevor of A.R.G.U.S. and Killer Snow as they moved through the park. However, Trevor shot Weasel and Frost froze him in a block of ice. Frost proceeded to absorb the energy from Weasel's body to replenish herself, which seemingly killed Monroe.
Powers and Abilities
- Unique Physiology: Monroe had a peculiar physiology that gave him the appearance of an anthropomorphic weasel. Although he was deadly enough to be considered a supervillain, Killer Frost noted that Weasel wasn't powerful enough to pose much of a threat.
- Weasel was created by Gerry Conway and Rafael Kayanan, first appearing in Firestorm (Volume 2) #36. However, in the Prime Earth continuity, Weasel first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Forever Evil #1 by Geoff Johns and David Finch.
