Major Story Arcs

Virago was the ironic name of an unidentified woman from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is described as being 'quite the looker', and in her brief career as a hero she helped local authorities arrest twelve criminals. She thwarted six muggers, three burglars, two cases of road rage, and an attempt to spray graffiti on the Liberty Bell - one of Philadelphia's most famous monuments.

In Green Arrow #12 she is lured out into the open with recorded cries for help. She is shot with a dart that deprives her the use of her legs. Virago is approached by a masked man, whom she asks for help. When he instead holds a pistol to her head, she begs him to spare her. After the man fires his weapon he reveals he is Onomatopoeia, a serial killer who targets non-metahuman costumed crime-fighters. Virago is his first recorded victim.

It is revealed in Batman Cacophony #3 that Onomatopoeia collected the masks of his victims. Virago's mask can be seen in a secret room of his ordinary house, next to the masks of Buckeye and others.
