Bekka is the daughter of Himon, one of the New Gods whose achievements include invention of the sentient Mother Box computers and discovery of the "x-element" that fueled his co-creation of the teleporting Boom Tubes alongside fellow scientist Metron. For many years, Bekka lived with her father in secret on Apokolips as Himon organized an underground uprising against Darkseid's tyrannical rule. Hunted for his role in this planned insurgence, Himon took extra care to shield Bekka from Darkseid's notice. Himon never imagined that Bekka would fall in love with Orion, Darkseid's own son, when he stumbled into their lives. After healing the wounded Dog of War, Himon and Bekka aided Orion in freeing his mother Tigra from imprisonment. For this act, Himon was seemingly slain by the dread lord of Apokolips. Bekka then accompanied Orion and Tigra to New Genesis, where her love continues to soothe the savagery that lurks within the Dog of War.
During the "Torment" incident, she and Batman help Superman escape from a fictional planet called Tartaros, where Superman is being held prisoner by Desaad. During the rescue mission, she and Batman develop an attraction and her affection causes Batman to reflect on the lack of love he has forced himself to endure. Bekka likens her spell of desire to a siren's call but says that it affects her as well. In the end, however, she leaves with Orion when he comes to get her. In her home, while thinking that, staying with Orion, she will forget Batman, some unknown person approaches her, and she is then apparently killed as part of the Death of the New Gods.
During the Death of the New Gods, it is initially revealed that her killer, and the killer of all the New Gods, is none other than her father Himon. However, the killer was later shown to actually be the Infinity Man (her uncle-in-law Drax), disguised as Himon.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Unrevealed; however, like her fellow New Gods, Bekka is remarkably long-lived.
