Denise Howard is the wife of the current Regent of Markovia, Brion Markov.

Denise attended the Gotham Community College, where he met Brion. However, she hoped to obtain an important scholarship to continue her studies, but when an abusive professor tried to get advantage of her in order to grant her the scholarship, she rejected him and any chance she had to obtain the financial aid, vanished. For this reason, Denise took a number of sleeping pills, hoping to commit suicide.[1]


  • Denise Howard's father was a police officer.[2]
