After her father. The Acro-Bat, a costumed superhero in a low-level superteam, was murdered by a villain named Doctor Trapps, Cameron Chase dedicated her life to the pursuit of justice. Eventually becoming a highly skilled and prized DEO agent, Chase had a number of solo adventures before becoming part of Manhunter's escapades. A relationship with tech guru Dylan Battles has recently produced a pregnancy and will likely affect her work. Cameron's father, Walter Chase, was Acrobat of the Justice Experience, a team of heroes that existed after the Justice Society, but before the Justice League. Her dislike of costume crime fighters stems from her childhood, when the maniacal Dr. Trap murdered her father. Cameron blamed his death on the clandestine nocturnal antics that had made him a target. Dr. Trap later tried to kill Chase, but the Martian Manhunter intervened.
Former private detective Cameron Chase became one of the top agents in the Department of Extra-normal Operations, a branch of U.S. intelligence that keeps tabs on the Earth's meta-humans and supernatural beings. Working under Director Bones, Chase has discovered the alternate lives employed by the shape-changing Martian Manhunter, she has run a mission with the Suicide Squad, played bodyguard for the Teen Titans during a toy store opening and tried to deduce the true identity of the Batman she mistakenly concluded that he was Green Lantern Alan Scott.
