  • Temporal Manipulation

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • Gilbert was one of the minor characters the Great Carlini believed to be expendable that was sent to try and save the Lobo series from becoming too violent. She was killed by Lobo, along with several other characters pulled from Comic Limbo, in a barroom brawl.[1] Due to the highly meta nature of the storyline and the fact almost all of the deceased characters appeared again in mainstream continuity, these deaths do not appear to be canon. Gilbert appeared alive again in Wonder Woman (Volume 2) #175.
