Little is known of the Queen of Clubs, but that she was the childhood friend of Amos Fortune, the "Ace of Clubs" of the Royal Flush Gang. Fortune patterened all of his original gang members as the suit of Clubs and provided them with weaponized playing cards charged with Stellaration energy. Partnered with the King of Clubs, the Queen fought up against and initially defeated several members of the Justice League of America, including Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Flash, and Wonder Woman. Ultimately, it was Snapper Carr who was granted the means by which to defeat the Royal Flush Gang. The Queen of Clubs and her colleagues faced the JLA a second time while impersonating historical characters (In Queen's case, Queen Elizabeth the first) in an attempt to locate a hidden treasure, and also had a run-in with Superman, during the second year of the Man of Steel's costumed career.
Amos Fortune eventually abandoned the Gang. Shortly thereafter, the Queen of Clubs and the rest of the Gang, having switched suits to Spades, attempted to steal paintings containing clues to a hidden treasure, but she was thwarted by the machinations of the Joker. Some time later, Queen, King and a new lineup of the gang faced Wonder Woman but were defeated again.
After this failure, the Queen abandoned her criminal career, but she later reunited with the original Gang for a one-time encounter against the so-called "Justice League Detroit". She was apparently killed during this encounter, thanks to the machinations of Amos Fortune, who had allied himself with the second Flush Gang as their Ace.
A second Royal Flush Gang was put together by Hector Hammond. Styled in the suit of Spades, the Queen was replaced by a woman named Mona Taylor.
Queen was one of five children that were taken from their homes and placed in a government-funded facility where they were trained to use their powers for the purpose of being used as weapons. During their late teens, the Joker freed the children and formed them into the Royal Flush Gang team, using four of its team members as interference to prevent the Justice League from defusing all the bombs he had set up in Las Vegas, while using Ace to manipulate the minds of those watching the Justice League in action on television.
Powers and Abilities
Queen was a ferrokinetic who was able to manipulate metal and shape it to whatever she desires.
This version of the character was voiced by Tara Strong.
