JSA All-Stars

Created by the original Hourman, Rex Tyler, as a means of information-gathering for the Justice Society of America's All Stars, Roxy exhibited a unique personality amongst other Artificial Intelligence. Roxy displayed self-awareness and complete sentience virtually instantaneously after her activation. She also possesses a sardonic wit rarely seen amongst machines. In her first appearance, she claims to have taken control of the world's nuclear weapons and plans to destroy the world. However, she reveals this to be an amusing ruse, much to the shock and chagrin of the Society. Roxy also speaks in a very informal manner, commonly utilising slang and shortenings in her speech, another trait uncommon to A.I.   

She is capable of rationalising the difference between good and evil and appears to help the All-Stars due to a strong desire to help people, and a general affection for "mortal creatues". Though she often chastises the team for their ignorance in specific areas, and commonly jokes about the power she has and the dangers of her one day becoming evil, Roxy has never acted in such a way as to make the team question her motives as being anything other than entirely benevolent. Whether or not Roxy's emotional intelligence and personality are a direct result of her programming, or a surprise side-effect of her creation, is currently unknown.

Later on, Roxy will fuse her AI with Lorna Pemberton who has gone into a coma because she succumbed to a bad fall. Roxy and King Chimera have explored the history behind these artifacts and discover something rather puzzling. The sorcerers are ancestral neophytes that have unleashed their Puzzlemen, stone giants with Easter Island heads, on members of the scientifically progressive community throughout time. The last time the Puzzlemen attacked was during 1720 in Kothen, Germany. The great composer Johann Bach devised a muscial partita in D minor that could cancel out the resonant frequencies that brings the artifacts together.  

Hourman returns with good news and bad news. The bad news is he couldn't locate the All Stars that vanished but he did find out that the sorcerers are heading to a Manhattan hospital where Lorna Pemberton is being treated. The JSA All Stars head out to Manhattan while Roxy figures out Pemberton's motivation for these thefts. Roxy discovers that Pemberton's daughter was a violinist before her accident. Roxy begins to put two and two together. The violin that the Hourman android gave her when she joined the JSA All Stars, was meant to be used to for this precise event.

Roxy fused her personality with Lorna Pemberton since her gifted fingers are capable of playing Bach's partita thus putting an end to the Puzzlemen. Roxy suddenly appears in Lorna's body and plays Bach's partita. The Puzzlemen fall apart and the sorcerers retreat back into limbo along with Pemberton who was greatly angered by Roxy's lack of moral decency as she uses his daughter's body as a vessel for her own essence.
