Queen of Fables src

The Queen of Fables was originally a sorceress from another dimension until she was exiled to Earth.

She reigned until princess Snow White defied her and she was trapped in the Book of Fables. Snow White used the book to turn fact into fiction and undo all the Queen's terrible acts.

Unfortunately, countless generations later the Queen was unwillingly released from her prison. She transformed Manhattan into an enchanted forest full of fantastic creatures extracted from folk tales. Then, she realized that Wonder Woman bore a striking resemblance with Snow White. Believing the Amazon Princess to be her daughter, she confronts her, forcing her into a deep sleep in an enchanted forest. Fortunately, Aquaman awakens Wonder Woman with his kiss (As he was once a Prince, and is now the King of Atlantis, it counts as a kiss from a Prince), and Batman discovers the book that the Queen had been trapped in. Eventually, the JLA managed to stop her, by making her realize that she was no longer immortal and eternally beautiful in the real world, and lock her once more (by trapping her within a book on the United States Tax Code, where she could find nothing imaginative to use as a weapon), undoing her spell again.

However, as the Queen of Fables would later reveal the United States Tax Code is imaginative due to human nature: "No one is more adept at spinning romantic fantasia then a man with debt and no way to pay it."[2] This allowed her to eventually escape and set her sights on Superman as her own Prince Charming. After transporting Superman to a Kryptonian glass forest, he is able to win his freedom and defeat the Queen (although the effort leaves him weak). She is last seen standing over a young sleeping girl, saying "Sleep well, dear one. Keep me alive. Dream of me. Dream of me."[2]

She returns again after assuming the identity of Laney Kirswel, the film executive in charge of an unauthorized Wonder Woman biography, made mostly of unapproved and slandering materials. She's again able to act in the human world, where she puts Wonder Woman through hellish scenarios, taken from the movie, meant to represent distorted happenings in her life. Diana coaxes her into taking the form of a huge dragon, who she notes is reminiscent of Maleficent, and blinds her with two battle axes, forcing her to flee.[1][3]



  • Vulnerability to Reality: The Queen of Fables has lost all grasp on the difference between reality and fiction and treats everything as if it is part of a story. A being of fiction, she is harmed by things that make her see the truth like Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth.
