Origin

A former associate and student of the criminal mastermind Dr. Faustus, Dr. Karla Sofen used her profession to satisfy her craving for power and control over others.


A noted psychiatrist, she was hired to cure Byron Becton, the criminal known as Moonstone. Using a hallucinogenic gas, Sofen caused her patient to physically reject the moonstone, a rock taken from the Blue Area of the Moon and believed to be invested with powers of the godlike Watcher. Taking possession of the mysterious rock from Becton, she absorbed it into her hand assuming the abilities that were his, becoming the new Moonstone.
