View full history
Introduced as a young woman of college age, Julie is unaware of much deeper secrets in her past. One of her ancestors was H.P. Lovecraft (the author) and her story includes a fictionalized account of his life. He witnesses at one point people being sacrificed to Wonderland so that Charles Dodgson can maintain his youth, but Dodgson instead of killing him take him into his protection. This connection to Wonderland is said to be the source of Lovecraft's particular brand of writing. He reveals to Dodgson that he has secretly created a family of his own, and will not tell Charles who they are for fear that they might might manipulated. These offspring are said to have the power of being this realm's guardians in the battle against the madness of Wonderland. All of these events later become known to Julie as she is the Queen of Spades gives her a journal which was written by Lovecraft.
Her first appearance was in Grimm Fairy Tales Presents: Call of Wonderland #1.
Though it is only early on in her comic book appearances, she has already demonstrated the change away from being a passive character in the events that surround her to one of being more proactive.
Major Story Arcs
She is originally introduced as a character entering a library late in the evening on the weekend. She is sexually harassed by some nearby male students. Once inside she encounters the Queen of Spades, who gives her a journal written by H.P. Lovecraft. In reading it she becomes aware that the story is more than fiction and aspect of it are true. She is attacked by an unknown monster in the library but manages to escape. Outside she faces once again the same male students, but resorts to some quick physical violence to deal with them. She later finds a business card for a tattoo parlor and goes to investigate, all the while discovering how Lovecraft's journal ties into the realm of Wonderland. After arriving to the Tattoo Parlor she discovers its owner and operator Salome Gray battling a monster the likeness of which she tattooed on a client's back. The two escape together and try to find some answers. After escaping they journey together to an abandoned house where they discover a pathway to Wonderland. When they arrive there they discover the Red Knight who is keen on destroying them. Salome engages the knight while Julie battles a nearby sea monster. In the process they discover that Julie has the power of words in Wonderland while Salome has the power of drawing. They vanquish their foes and return to Earth, but they are drawn back into Wonderland by the power of the Queen of Spades, who needs them to fill the role of the Queen of Hearts in Wonderland.
Powers and Abilities
As of yet she has not exhibited any special powers. All of her studies have left her with a keen intellect. Like other characters that visit Wonderland she can exert control over things there through her own willpower.
It is implied in other series that the land of Wonderland is similar to that of Myst. If that is the case then Julie is likely correspondingly a Wonderland version of a falseblood.
It is unknown if her assumption of the role as the Queen of Hearts has given her any increased power.
