Josephine MacDonald


Josephine MacDonald, also known as Josie Mac, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. She first appeared in Detective Comics #763 (December 2001) and was created by Judd Winick and Cliff Chiang.

Josie Mac is a police officer who had a promising career ahead of her, until she responded to a call and discovered the mayor's wife in bed with an exotic dancer. Four days after the incident, her mistake of embarrassing the mayor's wife got her moved to the Missing Persons department at the precinct. Josie made the best out of her transfer because unknown to her colleagues, she possessed minor psychic powers, which allowed her to find things and people which are lost through picking up "messages" from inanimate objects.[1]

Josie's first case in Missing Persons got her partnered up with Oscar Castro. The grandson of mob boss Anthony Antonelli was declared missing. The attackers of his grandson had shot at policemen who had responded to the struggle before the boy was kidnapped. Josie went to her apartment to review the case and discovered Batman was waiting for her. Batman tells her that he is aware of her abilities and warns her to stay away from this case. Josie ignored his warning and it got her father killed. Batman offered his condolences and agrees to help Josie to find Antonelli's grandson while in the same time bringing her father's murderer to justice. She and Batman learn that Two-Face was responsible for the kidnapping because he hated Antonelli for double crossing him on a deal that went bad months ago. They apprehend Two-Face while rescuing Antonelli's grandson. During interrogation, Two-Face professed that he had nothing to do with the murder of Josie's father; Batman believed him but Josie didn't. Josie later discovered that Antonelli's family lawyer David Montassano engineered events to gain control over the Antonelli mob. Montassano was responsible for the deal going bad between Two-Face and Antonelli and also for murder of Josie's father. He figured the death of her father would intimidate and deter her from pursuing the Antonelli case any further. After his arrest, Josie's partner Oscar Castro retired soon after Commissioner Michael Atkins transferred Josie to the Major Crimes Unit. After filling in for Renee Montoya for a time, Josie was partnered with Marcus Driver on the second shift.[2]

Bruno Mannheim


Moxie Mannheim


Moxie "Boss" Mannheim is a character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, and the father of Bruno Mannheim.

In the Pre-Crisis, Moxie Mannheim founded Intergang in the 1920s where he was then killed by rivals.[4][5]

In the Post-Crisis, Boss Moxie had been in prison since the 1940s after being captured by the Newsboy Legion and was later released from prison. He went to one of his operations to realign himself with Granny Goodness and Virman Vundabar. Discovering that the Newsboys were, seemingly, the same age as when he first fought them, Boss Moxie determined to find out how such a thing could be. He worked with Granny Goodness, Virman Vundabar, and the Female Furies into capturing the Newsboy Legion. During the fight against Guardian, Boss Moxie fell into a chasm. Badly injured, Moxie is found by Project Cadmus geneticist Dabney Donovan.[6] Allying with Dabney Donovan, Boss Moxie arranged for himself and his dead gang members from the 1940s to be cloned into youthful bodies with superpowers. This led to his henchmen Ginny "Torcher" McCree, Mike "Machine" Gun, Noose, and Rough House being cloned and receiving superpowers. Using Vincent Edge to arrange a meeting between Metropolis' gang leaders, he killed them all with a bomb in the clone of his original body, had Noose kill Vincent once he served his purpose, and declared himself the new head of Intergang. The new Intergang spent much of their time tracking down Jimmy Olsen, whom Boss Moxie believed knew Superman's secret identity.[7]

After Morgan Edge's short-lived reclaiming of his control on Intergang, Lex Luthor took over Intergang and allowed Boss Moxie to be his figurehead.[8]

Moxie later approaches Intergang supplier Frank Sixty to create a weapon to destroy Superman. This resulted in Sixty creating a giant lobster robot and declaring himself the leader of Intergang after Superman defeats Moxie and his allies.[9]

During the "Infinite Crisis" storyline, Boss Moxie appears as a member of Alexander Luthor Jr.'s Secret Society of Super Villains before being killed by Superboy-Prime.[10]

Matches Malone

First appearanceBatman #242 (June 1972)
Created byDennis O'Neil, Irv Novick, Dick Giordano
Further reading

Matches Malone was originally a Gotham gang boss whom Batman attempted to recruit to help take down Ra's al Ghul. He was accidentally killed by a ricocheting bullet that was meant for Batman, who began to impersonate the man to use his underworld contacts and to fool Ra's.[26]

Post-Crisis, he was a relatively small-time arsonist with his brother Carver and who came to Gotham City early on in Batman's career, attracting Batman's attention when Carver was apparently murdered. Although Matches was the prime suspect, there was no concrete evidence to make the charges stick and Matches was released, only for Batman to subsequently find what appeared to be Matches's dead body in another fire, apparently a suicide. Batman never reported his death; at the time, he had been attempting to establish a criminal alias for himself to help gather information, but the exclusive nature of the criminal sects meant that no one would recruit someone that they had not heard of, prompting Batman to adopt Malone's identity as his own as nobody else knew of the death.

Years later, Batman learned the truth about what had happened. Carver's death had actually been a suicide prompted by his guilt over a fire that he and Matches had started that resulted in the death of a homeless man who had been resting in the building they had torched. Matches made the body look like a murder victim because he was ashamed of his brother's suicide, but did such a good job of it that he ended up basically framing himself for his brother's murder. Deciding to escape Batman stalking him for the crime, Matches used the body of their earlier victim to fake his own death; Batman was so eager to establish a criminal alias that he never took the time to definitively confirm the body's identity.

After operating underground for years by committing low-end robberies, Matches returned to Gotham after hearing reports of 'his' activities, only to be shot by Scarface for 'his' recent betrayal, surviving long enough to simply confess his role in events to Batman and Nightwing before dying. His last request was that Batman bury him next to his brother and avenge his death. Batman subsequently destroyed Scarface in 'revenge' for Matches. Talking with Nightwing, Batman observed that he would continue using Malone's identity as he had come to recognize that Matches was not an evil man, but had done some bad things that he never had the chance to make up for, the Dark Knight regarding his use of Malone's name as a chance to give Matches some absolution.

The "Matches Malone" identity indirectly caused the events of Batman: War Games, when Stephanie Brown, after being fired as Robin, attempted to implement an old plan of Batman's that would allow the latter to take control of the city's criminal organizations, hoping that this would impress Batman enough to convince to take Stephanie back. Stephanie was unaware that the "agent" who was meant to take control of the meeting was Batman acting as Malone, resulting in tensions between the crime families flaring up and most of them being killed in the subsequent stand-off, leading into the subsequent gang wars and Stephanie's own apparent death.

In the Batman Beyond Rebirth series, Terry McGinnis uses the alias of "Trey Malone", son of Matches Malone, to infiltrate Terminal's Jokerz, but Terminal saw through Terry's disguise, due to recognizing him from high school.

Menagerie is a name shared by two antiheroines in the DC Universe, both members of the Elite.[31] The two are Puerto Rican sisters who are linked with a symbiotic alien weapon crèche called symbeasts.

Pamela first appears in Action Comics #775 (March 2001). While the origins of her powers are unclear in Action Comics #775, Manchester Black states that the rogue Men in Black (from the Department of Extranormal Operations) once picked up the dregs of society, turning them into weapons and selling them off to alien bidders. Black recruits Pam to be a member of the Elite. This group takes it upon themselves to "free the Earth of scum". They come into conflict with Superman during their first mission and Superman disables them following a showdown on Jupiter's moon, Io. The Elite are delivered into custody, but soon released by President Lex Luthor.[32] During an assassination attempt on Luthor, Menagerie reveals to Superman that the Elite are acting against their wills. For her betrayal, Black induces a stroke in her, putting her in a permanent vegetative state.[33]

Sonja first appears in JLA #100 (August 2004). Upon Black's apparent death, his sister, Vera Black, takes it upon herself to clear the family name and reassembles the Elite as a force for good. As Sister Superior she convinces Pamela's sister, Sonja, to assume control of the alien cache as the second Menagerie. Vera then approaches the JLA with a proposition to form a sort of black ops JLA team: Justice League Elite.[34] Sonja's hatred of Manchester Black becomes a hatred of the Elite. Sonja sees this as her opportunity to kill Vera's dream, so she plays along and joins the team. In their first mission, Menagerie secretly coaxes Coldcast into killing the foreign terrorist dictator, Hi-Shan Bhat.[35] Menagerie lays low during the fallout and puts effort into her personal relationship with Coldcast. The two become lovers and are drawn together by their shared affection for Pamela. Then, while most of the Elite goes underground, Vera is finally fully overtaken by the disembodied Manchester Black.[36]

While Black threatens Earth with a Fourth World god, Menagerie goes missing and Coldcast is arrested by the JLA for Bhat's murder. Coldcast confesses to the murder and is taken to the Slab prison. There he is visited by the spirit of the recently departed Manitou Raven, who frees him from Menagerie's control.[37] Coldcast is exonerated and the team tracks Sonja to Costa Rica, where she affirms that she acted against Vera to punish her for Manchester's role in the death of Menagerie's sister. She is taken into JLA custody, deprived of the aliens, and begins a gradual separation that they hope will sever her connection to the symbeasts; Green Arrow observes that the process is basically heroin withdrawal multiplied by a billion plus one, and at first the beasts and the host can only be kept apart from each other by a transparent wall.[38]
