Siobhan came to New York City to escape her homeland of Ireland due to family issues. Her father died when she was young and her mother had only recently died which caused her to seek a new life in what she considered the "greatest city in the world". After arriving and settling down in Queens she inadvertently found herself face to face with the city's newest threat, Supergirl.
Instantly understanding her language, and after a short tussle with the authorities, she escaped with the help of Supergirl. Figuring that they needed each other and striking a fast friendship, the girls returned to Siobhan's home where they got to know each other properly. Siobhan decided to bring Kara to her latest band gig, and while playing music at the club, Siobhan's father, the Black Banshee. Siobhan revealed that she was, in fact, the Silver Banshee, and together they tackled her unrelenting father.
