When Barry Allen traveled through the timestream in order to try and correct it, he ended up at a point where he saw three distinct timelines – the DC, Wildstorm and Vertigo universes. It was here where Barry met an entity of unknown origin and powers named Pandora. She revealed that long ago the universe had splintered into three in order to weaken it for an impending arrival of an unknown evil invasion. To combat the threat, she needed the different timelines to be merged into one. She accomplished this feat with the help of Barry, and he later woke up at his desk believing everything was fixed.
Later, Pandora is seen at the murder site of an unnamed man. As she leaves, Phantom Stranger follows her, chastising her on the restructuring of the universe. He also implies she is the same Pandora from Greek myth, saying she has been ordered to return the box, as she can no longer be trusted with it. After a brief fight with her as the victor, she remarks that neither the Stranger nor the Spectre intimidate her, as her powers are far above theirs. Before leaving, she cryptically states she not only knows the Stranger's true identity, but also that the Justice League will help her complete whatever goal she is working towards - regardless of whether they want to or not.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit

- She has been confirmed as the same Pandora of myth, wanting revenge for her punishment after opening the box.
