View full history
A magical being, the Lady of the Lake has encountered some superheroes from around the world, most notably Captain Britain, the Black Knight and their friends. More recently she fought alongside Captain Britain and his team during the Skrull invasion on Brittain and the world. It seemed that she was killed by a Skrull with an anti-magic gun. She however showed up more recently in the pages of Journey into Mystery, so her apparent death was a mistake.
The Lady of the Lake (also known as the Green Lady) appears in the story arc The Destiny Game. She is a messenger of the Fates and has the ability to assign and reassign different destinies to particular individuals. Initially a sly and conniving woman, she turns more diligently after two encounters with Bigby Wolf. It is implied that she later marries Snow and Bigby's cub Ambrose. She is referred to in The Good Prince; after Flycatcher's heroic deeds in the Homelands kingdom of Haven, he asks Lancelot to throw Excalibur into the biggest lake he can find, and tells him to not be surprised if a "green bejeweled hand" reaches up to grasp Excalibur before it sinks out of sight. She is also referred to in the Jack of Fables story arc The Bad Prince, when a mysterious old man comes out of the river, carrying Excalibur and says that the "green woman's gift must not fall into evil hands".
Originally from Arthurian legend, the Lady of the Lake is the spirit caretaker of a mystic realm called the Secret Sea. The Lady of the Lake found Aquaman near death. After he was exiled from the oceans and left for dead on Traitor's Reef, she restored his health and unveiled the Secret Sea (an uncharted dimensional reservoir whose ebb and flow is felt in the "World of Man") to him. Orin was selected to be a conduit for channeling the healing energy of the Secret Sea into our Earthly dimension. His artificial harpoon hand is replaced with magically powered living water, an extension of the Secret Sea and herself.
She is not limited to her realm and can visit her champion in times of crisis.
