Major Story Arcs

Starman

Hope acts as a police officer alongside her family members, working with Starman to protect Opal. When the Shade and Matt O'Dare are in trouble, she seeks the assistance of Jack Knight. She comes into contact with the anti-villainous Shade during Ted Knight's kidnapping, and forms an uneasy relationship with him that is not made any more trusting by his apparent involvement in a murder that she and her family begin investigating. She is caught up in the events of Grand Guignol, and is held captive alongside the other associates of Jack Knight. Following these events, Hope decides to take some time off and leaves Opal.

Blackest Night

Having expressed romantic interest in the past, Hope and Shade go on a date. However, they are interrupted by the Blackest Night, when a former Starman, David Knight, is resurrected and begins to rampage through Opal City. Hope teams up with Shade to defeat the undead Knight.

The Shade

Now in a relationship with the Shade, Hope encourages him to go on an adventure. When Deathstroke attempts to kill Shade he comes to Hope to bid her farewell as he prepares to travel and uncover the plot against him.
