Todd LeBeau was born twin brother to the girl who would become the Jade Enchantress, his sister Jennie. They were split up at birth, and while Todd found life in New Orleans, his sister grew up in New Asgard. In a New Orleans bar, Todd acquired some magic playing cards, which activated his metamutant abilities. With his new found powers, Todd took the name of Wraith, and joined the Shadow Guild.
In the miniseries JLA: The New Blood, Wraith was among the first members to be recruited to the New Blood group of the Judgment League Avengers, along with Apollo and Firebird. They were actually assembled by Mister X in secret, though the New Blood members did not become aware of this until later on.
Wraith began a romantic relationship with fellow New Blood teammate Runaway, though he feared that with her power-absorption abilities, she was slowly absorbing more and more of his 'dark side', which Wraith believed would slowly but surely corrupt her. Wraith, along with the other New Blood members, were separated from the JLA when the Mariner was framed by Will Magnus, making the JLA think that the Mariner had destroyed some Roxxon oil tankers.
Wraith, along with Apollo, Firebird, Mercury, Runaway, and Nightcreeper were assembled into the JLX by Mister X. The team rescued the Mariner from his imprisonment. In JLX #1, Wraith and his fellow JLX teammates battled against the JLA until Angelhawk feigned an injury and both teams retreated. At this point, Wraith knew for sure that every time Runaway touched him, she was absorbing him darkness, which was slowly driving her insane. When Wraith and the JLX fought against Will Magnus and Jocasta, Wraith killed Jocasta after she attacked and injured Runaway. This event led Wraith to have a great hatred for Will Magnus, greater than those of the other metamutants on the JLX team.
During the Armageddon Agenda, the vent in which Will Magnus got permission from the government to use his Sentinels to hunt metamutants, Wraith was one of the few metamutants to not be imprisoned or killed by the Sentinels. With the help of his old friends, the Shadow Guild, Wraith was able to slip away from the mayhem. His current whereabouts are unknown, and he was not a member of the secnd JLX team assembled by Wonder Woman.
Wraith possesses the metamutant ability to change into an substantial shadowy form and "phase" through solid objects. His set of playing cards serves as the focus of his powers, so it is unknown if he can utilize his metamutant even in the absence of his cards. When Wraith uses his powers to phase through living beings, the experience leaves them with an incapacitating feeling of intense cold
His shadowy-form is easily injured by bright light
His guild costume is armored
