Beautiful Dreamer was raised on New Genesis alongside her close friends, with whom she would later form the Forever People. When Darkseid began his war against the New Gods, she was kidnapped, and trapped on Earth. She was rescued by Superman and the other Forever People, along with the help of a cosmic being they summoned with their Mother Box, called Infinity Man. The group remained on Earth, intending to explore the planet and learn about their own histories.
Beautiful Dreamer was created by Jack Kirby.
A member of the New Gods in the Bronze Age, the early Modern Age saw Beautiful Dreamer and the rest of the Forever People retconned into members of the human race who would have died as infants save for the intervention of the New Gods, who raised them to act as saviours of the Earth. This was later retconned again, and Beautiful Dreamer was re-established as a New God, and implied to be among the first in a next stage of evolution for the New Gods.

The Forever People
In their self-titled series, Beautiful Dreamer remains a member of the Forever People, and is involved in all their adventures, and in fighting Darkseid, who constantly tries to eliminate the Forever People. During an encounter with Devilance the Pursuer, she teleports to the distant planet of Adon along with her friends, trading places with Infinity Man, and is trapped there when Infinity Man is apparently destroyed in battle with Devilance, who is similarly destroyed. On Adon, Beautiful Dreamer marries fellow Forever Person Big Bear, and together they have a child, named Maya. Her marriage and child were later wiped out of existence following an encounter with an entity known as the Dark, which destroys everything that happened to the group while on Adon.
