White Feather is a member of the Inferior Five.

His father was Bowman of the Freedom Brigade. He is an excellent archer, although cowardly and nervous, afraid of almost everything, making him an ineffective hero.

As William King, he worked with models and actresses as a photographer. However, he was terribly intimidated and afraid of these women. Eventually, his friend and teammate Athena Tremor began working with him, as he is far more comfortable around her.

Weaknesses


  • Although this character was originally introduced as an inhabitant of DC's Pre-Crisis Earth-Twelve reality, 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.
  • White Feather is the son and heir of the Bowman, who is an analog to Green Arrow from the Golden Age Justice Society of America.
  • White Feather's heroic codename is a reference to the 18th century practice of women, specifically members of the Suffragette movement, dispensing white feathers to young able-bodied men in the United Stats and Britain. This was done to shame them into enlisting in the military and was essentially an accusation of cowardice.
