Born in Star City, Maggie Sawyer was once married to another police officer, James Buchanan Sawyer, however she divorced him when she determined she was a lesbian. They have a daughter, Jamie, who lives with her father in Star City.  After serving on the Metropolis PD, Maggie is currently a captain for Gotham City Police Department's Major Crimes Unit.
After her divorce, Maggie moved to Metropolis and joined the Special Crimes Unit, working in situations that would normally require Superman but without the assistance of the Man of Steel. She also began dating Toby Raynes, a reporter for the Metropolis Star
As Superman's primary police contact and a no-nonsense cop, she was a source of constant aggravation for the Man of Steel when she tried to prove that the police were more efficient than vigilantes. Eventually Superman rescued her during a terrorist plot and things were smoothed out between the two. Still, as a Captain, Maggie often overstepped her rank by ordering around officers who were above her, angering some. Following the death of Superman, William Henderson promoted her to Inspector, resolving the issue.
When Michael Akins become Commissioner of Gotham City, Maggie was transferred to head up Gotham City Police Department's Major Crimes Unit. This put a strain on her relationship with Toby, as the reporter opted to stay in Metropolis. After Harvey Bullock uncovered rampant corruption in Gotham PD, Maggie was one of the few people associated with Akins to remain on the force. Still a captain, Maggie contacted Steel when Lex Luthor's body was found in Gotham  and later spoke with Renee Montoya concerning the latter's involvement with Intergang.
