Naomi McDuffie src
Naomi McDuffie is a seemingly normal girl who lives in a small town in Oregon. When a fight between Mongul and Superman crashed into her small Northwestern town, she began a quest to uncover the last time a super-powered person visited her hometown and how that might tie into her adoption and origins. She discovered that she is from an alternate Earth, gifted at birth with godlike powers, sent to Earth be preserved from Zumbado, the destructive conqueror of her birth's Earth.

Origin

Naomi was born on Earth in an alternate universe. Naomi's universe was very similar to the Prime Universe, but with a few distinguishing details. After years of human environmental abuse, the Earth's ozone layer collapsed. In the wake of the ozone layer's destruction, undiscovered radiation leaked onto the Earth's surface which had previously been kept at bay.[1]

The radiation didn't harm anyone on planet Earth, but twenty-nine random people across the planet were given access to godlike powers. Naturally some of the twenty-nine sought to rule the world with these newfound powers, while others sought to stop them. After one month of civil war between these two factions, fourteen of the twenty-nine were dead; in addition seven more of the twenty-nine left the planet in disgust, leaving only eight remaining. Eventually these eight were able to call a truce before the Earth was entirely destroyed.[1]

None of the twenty-nine had been able to procreate, until Naomi's mother miraculously gave birth to her. Zumbado, the most vile of the twenty-nine, sought to end Naomi's life to prove his superiority among the twenty-nine. However, Naomi's parents, with the help of a woman called Akira, made preparations for Naomi's escape.[1]

Eventually, her parents' allies brought Naomi to the Prime Universe, where she was discovered and adopted by Greg McDuffie and his wife Jen McDuffie in the small town of Port Oswego. Naomi grew up not knowing anything about her childhood, instead believing that she was an ordinary girl.[1]

Facing Zumbado

Naomi Vol 1 5 Textless

Naomi using her new-found powers.

As soon as she gained her powers, Naomi flew back into town where she met up with Annabelle. While Naomi was telling Annabelle everything that had happened, a portal opened and a large man stepped through. The man told Naomi that he had used her newly-discovered powers to lock onto her location and that Akira had sent him to bring her back to their world. Eager to see her birth world, Naomi followed the man through the portal.[2]

Naomi was shocked to discover that her birth world had been almost completely ravaged. The man revealed to Naomi that he was Zumbado, and that her parents had died a long time ago. After sometime talking with Zumbado, Naomi attacked him, determined to claim vengeance for her parents' deaths.[2]

Although she was incredibly powerful, Naomi was no match for Zumbado's greater experience, and she was quickly overwhelmed. Fortunately, Lady Akira came to Naomi's aid and opened a portal for her escape back to Earth. Although she was reluctant to leave Akira in the hands of Zumbado, Naomi eventually headed through the portal back home. Although Zumbado tried to follow her, Naomi was able to use her powers to send him back through the portal, which subsequently closed.[2]

Coming to Metropolis

Action Comics Vol 1 1015 Textless

Naomi in Metropolis with Batman and Superman.

Immediately after facing Zumbado Naomi headed to Metropolis, the home of Superman, seeking some kind of mentor-ship from the Man of Steel. Eventually she crash-landed in a hot-dog stand outside the Daily Planet building where she was discovered by Superman. Upon seeing Superman, Naomi asked the Man of Steel for help, to which he gladly accepted.[3]

Naomi and Superman flew to the Hall of Justice where she filled him in on what she knew about her powers and the incident with Zumbado. The Wonder Twins, who were interning at the Hall of Justice, gave Naomi a medical check up in the hopes of discovering the origin of her powers. She was also questioned by Dr. Ray Palmer, who wished to know which Earth she originated from in the Multiverse, a question which she had no answer to.[3]

Batman soon arrived and began questioning Naomi as well, at which point Superman had to leave to deal with a secret organisation called Leviathan.[3]

Powers

  • Transformation: Naomi can transform into a super-powered form by using her unique power, while in this super form she wears a kind of golden armor and gains some superhuman abilities.[1] These include:
    • Energy Projection: In her super-powered form, Naomi generates an energy wave that surrounds her entire body.[2] She can utilize the energy in her body for various purposes, these include:
      • Energy-Enhanced Strike: Naomi can use the energy to boost her attack power when she punches opponents.[2] She can also increase her attack power to be greater, by focusing more energy on her fist. This ability allows her to be able to fights enemies that cannot be touched by physical attacks and strike their "real body" directly.[4]
      • Energy Blast: Naomi can release powerful energy blasts from both of her hands.[5] This energy blast have been shown to be capable of hurting enemies as tough as Red Cloud even in her cloud form.[4]
    • Flight: Naomi can fly or levitate in the air in her super-powered form.[1]
    • Superhuman Strength: In super-powered form, Naomi's strength is enhanced to a superhuman level, which allows her to be able to fight against other superhuman beings.[2]
    • Superhuman Durability: Naomi's endurance is also enhanced to a superhuman level. She can withstand great impact forces, such as being hit by an opponent with super strength or being tossed into buildings.[2]

Weaknesses

  • Lack of Control: Naomi didn't seem to really understand the upper limits of her power and still lack of control over her superhuman abilities well, which means he needs more practice.[3]
