The legend of Black Mask is well-known in the humble Southern coastal city of Vibora Bay. For generations, it is said that the spirit of justice and vengence would summon a champion that would right the wrongs that the world of man failed to. He is everywhere... and nowhere. He goes where the law cannot and does what the law would not.
But that legend started with one man. A man that would put on a green-and-black outfit, pick up a gun, and dispense justice. And when that man became too old to carry out justice, he would train his sons to follow his cause.
Today the legend of Black Mask continues, only this time through a woman.
Although the previous Black Mask did not want to turn the mantle over to a woman, he had no choice. Jennifer Ward was the only child to the family, and even though she was willing to carry on the family legacy, her father refused to train her, fearing for her safety. Thus she turned to her grandfather to train her in secret. Eventually her father relented and turned over the mantle of Black Mask for the first time to a woman.
Today, Black Mask serves as the modest force for justice in Vibora Bay at a time when it needs her the most.
Black Mask is modestly seductive. She flirts when needed and wears an outfit that shows off enough skin to distract her opponents.
In the early parts of her career, she found herself attracted to Defender, but eventually she placed the needs of Vibora Bay over her own.
