Genre Description

A label for music coming out of the 1970s CBGBs scene when it became clear that "Punk" wasn't fitting the bill. (And because label consultants for Sire said that "Punk" was just a fad.) Typically New Wave had more experimentation and synthesizers, and moved in a more Pop direction, although originally it was all just "Punk".

Unusual Features
New Wave wears a mohawk, and all of her clothing and features are a contrast of blue and white.




New-Wave was/is the leader of the mercenary group called the Masters of Disaster. Each member of this group controlled a natural force from nature. Their main opponents over the years have been the Outsiders.

They first appeared in Batman and the Outsiders and were hired by a Mrs. Shelton to exact justice/revenge upon Black Lightning for the death of her daughter, Trina Shelton. The death had been an accident but Mrs. Shelton paid New Wave and her team to capture and kill Black Lightning. The Masters black mailed the Outsiders into handing Black Lightning over whereupon they took him to a secret offshore oil rig. The Outsiders followed and succeeded in freeing Black Lightning before the sentence could be carried out.

The outsiders fought New Wave and the Masters of disaster on many occasions, including during an overthrow attempt in Markovia. Baron Bedlam had hired the Masters to counter any superhero intervention. In the end the attempt failed and New Wave encountered an additional casualty when her younger sister Windfall defected to the Outsiders.

More Recently, New-Wave and Shakedown teamed up in a kidnapping scheme. The kidnapping attempt went awry due to the two of them misunderstanding the financial ability of the Parent. New-Wave in a rage drowned her partner, but enough clues were left behind that the JSA was able to track her down and capture her in a large test tube before the child could be harmed.

Powers and Abilities



Hydrokinesis: New Wave can transform her body or any part thereof into water, or any of the many forms water can take (i.e. steam, water vapor etc.). She often emits high-pressure water blasts from her hands, but seems to prefer transforming into a mini-Tsunami and using that form to batter and drown her opponents. When in the form of a cloud she has managed to precipitate acid onto her enemies (i.e. acid rain). She apparently does not not like transforming or being transformed into ice.


Leadership: New wave is a determined leader, and a capable thief.

Strength level

Average strength for a woman of her size when in human form. Tremendously powerful when in water-form.


  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
