Origin

Desiring to claim the birthright of her clan, Siobhan McDougal was banished by her brother to a netherworld. Given great mystical power by an old crone she returned to retrieve a book of magic in exchange for her powers. Searching in Metropolis she ran afoul of Superman, who required the assistance of fellow Justice League member the Martian Manhunter to defeat the thief. After achieving vengeance upon her brother, McDougal would return many times to menace Superman as the wailing Silver Banshee.


Either of McDougal or an entity which provided her powers returned to the city of Metropolis on Halloween night - possessing Daily Planet journalist Artemisia using her disgust with the city as a catalyst to create fear and commit murder as the Silver Banshee.
