DC Comics

Morgaine Le Fey is an Arthurian sorceress talented in the arts of dark magic.

In the 20th Century, Morgaine loses her youth and forces Jason Blood to turn into the demon Etrigan and bring her to Merlin's tomb because he has the secrets to her youth. Etrigan beats Morgaine Le Fey, and she doesn't get her youth.

Le Fey often goes searching for the Philosopher's Stone which will give anything that is desired to whoever has it.

Her and her Daughter Morgana are the foes of Batman, The Justice League, and more commonly, Wonder Woman. She once sought to steal Wonder Woman's eternal youth not knowing that she had already given it up, and as a result Le Fey turned into dust.

Morgaine Le Fey must steal her youth to be immortal, and after Merlin stole her youth and beauty, she hides he old, ancient body under gold armor.

Trinity (story arc)

Morgaine Le Feye allied herself with the anti matter universe Riddler (Enigma) and Despero in an effort to seize the positions of the trinity (Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman) as the keystones of the multiverse. In order to do so, the dark trinity started stealing items connected to the three heroes, and they also stole the massively powerful cosmic egg (which also contained the Maltusian Krona). When they acquired everything they needed, Morgaine is able to cast her spell despite the superheroes' efforts and remakes the world completely without the trinity ever existing (the trinity are exiled to the cosmic egg) and enhances the dark trinity's power to a great extend.

However; Despero turns out to be a disguised Kanjar Ro which leaves the spell incomplete allowing some people to remember the original world and help the trinity (who have been endowed with god like powers) return from the cosmic egg. Enigma also offers the alien Xar Xalitan to be a replacement for the traitorous Kanjar Ro, he accepts thus remaking the dark trinity. And so, the trinity engage the dark trinity battle that leaves Morgaine and her allies defeated.

After her defeat Morgaine retreats to her Castle Branek, and draws out the god like trinity seeing that will give her the advantage since the castle is her seat of power. This proves to be false as the trinity easily defeated her forces. So she forces tarot (who is connected to the worldsoul) to tell her how can she obtain more power, the tarot's reply confused Morgaine which said that the power that fuels her may still be her salvation.

Later, Morgana struck a bargain with Despero and the crime syndicate promising them great power if they defeat the trinity, this attempt however failed when the they were defeated by the trinity easily due to their divine powers.

Finally Morgaine realizes that the power that fuels her is that of Krona's (which according to tarot is her salvation) so she asks for Krona's help in return she offers him enigma's daughter soul (the worldsoul whom krona seeks). The divine trinity manage to trap Krona, but Morgaine gives her power to him allowing him to break free and destroy the earth and everyone with it. However; in the end when all seemed lost, the trinity apparently having survived the destruction of earth, returned and defeated Krona, and then recreated the world. In the end Morgaine is imprisoned by Jason Blood.

Superman/Batman Sorcerers Kings

Morgaine Le Fey along with Felix Faust, Blackbriar Thorn, and Brother Blood made a bargain with dark powers to sacrifice the sun in exchange for limitless power. To ensure this plan would work they sent a powerful creature from the future to defeat batman and his team.

New 52

Morgaine Le Fay made her New 52 debut in the pages of Demon Knights, set in the Dark Ages after the fall of Camelot. The Knights have been dispatched by the rulers of Alba Sarum to find a way to bring the murdered Merlin back to life, hoping their city could become the next Camelot. In order to do so, the Knights must travel to Britan and return to the location of Arthur's Camelot, even before they reach the island they are met with monsters of incredible durability and savagery, according to the locals it had gradually gotten worse ever since Camelot fell. The Knights later encounter a skeletal King Arthur who is soon restored and leads them to Camelot, where Morgaine Le Fay has built her castle on the ruins and desecrated various items, such as the Round Table.

Morgaine is revealed to be one of the Fay, or Ladies of the Lake a race of woman-like creatures that lived on the shores of Avalon and is as such the sister of Madam Xanadu, who she knows as Nimue. Even by Fay standards Morgaine is old and due to the magics she has practiced over the course of her life, her body has decayed to a point that she prefers to hide it behind a golden mask. Though she has been planning on switching her mind to the body of Merlin, which would allow her to endure and be a new person. Her plan for Merlin is foiled, and in an attempt to transfer herself into Nimue is blocked by King Arthur who then strikes a gem that had been responsible for the monsters, what became of Morgaine and Arthur remains unknown.
