Mercy Graves was hired along with another woman named Hope to be Lex Luthor's Lexcorp employed bodyguard when he was President of the United States.

Mercy and Hope were apparently of Amazon Heritage, given they could go toe-to-toe with Superman and were familiar with the ancient sorceress Circe, even in disguise.

After Lex lost his Presidency Mercy stayed as a bodyguard while he was a fugitive from justice.


Mercy was present when Luthor presented his "Be Your Own Hero" program, in which she is brought into confrontation with Steel, when she proceeds to shoot him and he deflects the bullets back at her, injuring her right hand.

Infinity, Inc.

Mercy Joins the Infinity, Inc. team trying to make up for her past. She puts on a costume with a special mask that is even capable of keeping her identity secret from Superman and Lex Luthor, and she takes up the name "Vanilla". When she almost kills a man by beating him to death, she leaves the team realizing that its not in her to be a hero.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit
