Sandra Asplin was adopted by the Asplin family when she was six years old. Her new father Amos Asplin was abusive while her adoptive mother Minnie did nothing to help her or her brother Benjamin (also adopted).[1] Amos beat his children for being meta-human while Minnie stood idly by. Eventually Benjamin realized the potential that he and his sister shared, and they killed their father with their powers, leaving their mother alive until years later, when they murdered her as well, from half-way across the globe.

Sandra changed her name to Shondra Kinsolving and became a physiotherapist living in Gotham City. She helped Jack Drake to recover his physical condition[2] and later, on Drake's son Tim's recommendation, she was contacted by Bruce Wayne,[3] who needed help with the loss of his mental and physical condition[4] While treating Wayne, Kinsolving developed deeper feelings for him.[5] A few days later, Kinsolving attended a charity function at Gotham's Civic Center, where she represented her clinic, which was being funded by the Wayne Foundation. However, all the people at the event were drugged and hypnotized by Poison Ivy, including Kinsolving, who recovered after a few hours, when the effects from the drugs receded.[6]

Shortly after, Kinsolving was summoned to Wayne Manor, where she was asked to provide her expertise in medicine for Wayne’s recovery. Wayne's butler Alfred Pennyworth told her that Bruce had been in a car crash, but Kinsolving knew it was a lie by examining the x-ray results. However, she decided to play along and tried her best to tend Wayne’s wounds as she started to develop feelings for him.[7] Unfortunately, she was kidnapped along with Jack Drake, an event which Wayne helplessly witnessed.[8]

The Search

Main article: Batman: Knightquest

Kinsolving and Jack Drake had been kidnapped by her brother, Benjamin Asplin (going by the alias Benedict Asp). Asp and his cronies took Kinsolving and Drake to England.[9] Wayne and Pennyworth took on disguises and flew to England to rescue Kinsolving and Drake.

While in England, Kinsolving was used by her brother to kill an entire village using her metahuman powers.[10] Though normally used for healing, Kinsolving's powers can be amplified for malicious purposes against her will. Kinsolving was inevitably rescued by Wayne, but the severe strain on her psyche caused her to revert to her child-like state and the want to be called 'Sandra', her real name.[11]

A few years later, when Hush first struck at Batman, Kinsolving was stated by Oracle to have "got better".[12]
