Semi-Official Creepy Purple Lady Watch Thread

#1 Edited by HubrisRanger (173 posts) - - Show Bio

So now we're in the post-Flashpoint DCU, and one of the very first mysteries is who is this woman?

See if seen by Wally West when he's jetting through the timestream, and more or less takes responsibility for uniting the "Three Worlds" (DCU, Wildstorm, and a handful of Vertigo books I guess we were suppose to assume were a shared universe) into one. Her identity is not revealed, nor her intentions. What HAS been revealed, however, is that she is not going anywhere.

Check out this panel from Justice League:

As you can clearly see, there is the unnamed creepy purple cloak lady in the far right of the panel, checking out Vic Sage's football domination. And that isn't her last appearance, as she's already been revealed to have a sneaky cameo in the upcoming first issue of Animal Man:

So yeah. Creepy purple lady is popping up and peeping in on everyone. The rumor is that she will be at least making these subtle-Uatu-like appearances in all the first issues of the new 52. Thus, I decided to make a comprehensive list of all Creepy Purple sightings for the new books, and list them all here. Maybe we'll even learn her name in the process!

Here is the well-publisized New 52 release schedule for September, with added Purple Lady appearances as they are spotted.

Also, feel free to use this thread as a place to speculate on who the creepy purple lady is, and what her larger role in the new DC Universe could be. I will update the list when the new books come out and we have confirmed appearances; there are a few rumored pages floating around, but I'd rather see final art, because things always change.

Wow, these are some good artists if they can make a glowing purple woman blend into the background so easily that I need someone to point her out to me.

@HubrisRanger: did anyone notice her in Batman #2 of the New 52 (see page 20)? I haven't read all of the others yet but I did not see her in any other #2s.
