Shadowbird

Shadowbird (Jillian Kane) is is the Amalgam of Marvel Comics' Shadowoman and DC Comics' Flamebird. Jillian Kane was a star athlete who found that there weren't any challenges in her life, save for meeting her favorite hero, Moonwing. She decided to get his attention by creating a costumed identity of her own as Shadowbird and trying to become his crimefighting partner. However, Moonwing did not notice her. That changed when she tried to help him fight a criminal who was stealing occult artifacts, and fell onto a cursed statue, killing her. The dark magic of the statue allowed her to be resurrected with the power to manipulate shadows. Afraid that telling her that she had died would be too much for her to bear, Moonwing allowed her to believe that she must have acquired her new powers from one of the occult relics and now secretly keeps an eye on her to make sure the darkness inside her doesn't consume her.
