Dana was a GBS employee who met Jimmy Olsen when he became an anchor for that news network. She asked Jimmy out on a date, and Jimmy was immediately taken with the attractive Dana.

One of their first dates was to Metropolis Museum of Art, which was featuring an exhibit of ancient coins which were supposed to grant their possessor super powers. Scavenger attacked the museum, hoping to recover the coins, after coming up with a suitable distraction for Superman. The Alpha Centurion was on scene, however, and stopped Scavenger from stealing the coins--but in the confusion, Dana secretly pocketed them.[1]

Dana continued with her relationship with Jimmy for several weeks, pretending to be completely infatuated with him, but really she had hooked up with him to get a chance to meet Superman. When "Superman's pal" didn't deliver, she broke up with him.[2]

Once she found how to work with her new powers, Dana invited Jimmy over and beat on him until he turned over his signal watch. After slipping into a custom made costume, Dana used the watch to call Superman to her apartment. Superman found Dana had erected a sort of shrine to him. She wanted him to love her, and she called herself Superwoman. When he rebuffed her advances, she got angry and attacked him, knocking him into the harbor and setting fire to a tanker. When the tanker started blazing, Dana helped Superman rescue the crew on board. While Superman flew them to safety, the tanker exploded. There was no sign of Dana. That night on the news, Jimmy labeled her "Obsession."[3]

Obsession Battles Maxima

After the Final Night, Superman soon was transformed into an energy being. He was then split into a Superman Blue and a Superman Red. The two Supermen went to the Fortress of Solitude to work out how they could reintegrate. They found Obsession there. She told them that the tanker explosion had left her briefly amnesic, but she eventually regained her memory and managed to track Superman to the Antarctic on a previous visit there. She then broke in and waited for him. After she told him the story, Maxima showed up, still wanting Superman as a consort. While Dana was willing to share (she called Red), Maxima had no intentions of doing so. The two women fought until Maxima used her telepathy to create an image in Dana's mind that she had killed Superman. Terribly upset, Dana fled the Fortress.[4]

"Mrs. Superman"
Much later, Obsession resurfaced with a new costume. She turned up right after a story had broke about Superman being spotted wearing a wedding ring. When Obsession turned up in a Superman styled costume, several onlookers believed she was "Mrs. Superman." Dana was angry at Superman's "two-timing," and attacked him. Superman had to shake her to her senses when some thugs high on DMN attacked a small store. Dana helped him take down the human-turned-demons and apparently died in the process.[5]

Star Wars: Obsession is a series of comics published by Dark Horse Comics. It ran from November 24, 2004 to May 18, 2005. The concept of the series was to lead directly into Episode III, but publication delays prolonged the release of the final issue until the day before the release of the film.


Plot summary

Consumed by the belief that the Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress still lives, Obi-Wan Kenobi has temporarily forsaken his duties and recruited Anakin Skywalker in his desperate hunt for Ventress.

Anakin believed he himself killed Ventress and that Obi-Wan is 'chasing a ghost'. And Anakin's doubts about his former Master's quest are not assuaged when, following the trail of the rumors of Ventress' existence, they walk into a trap set by their old enemies, the bounty hunter Durge and Count Dooku.
