Introductory post for my Young Justice OC: Calin Luthor. Code name Double Zero. Before she gets some of her memories back she is very timid and unsure of herself. After seeing a picture of Lex Luthor she regains part of herself and turns into a somewhat selfish, uncaring brat. Her sudden change is explained when the team meets Luthor and he reveals that she is his biological daughter. He further explains that she was kidnapped several months ago from her boarding school in Gotham. And that even he doesn’t know how she came to have her powers.
Since Calin was not born with her powers they wear away at her when she uses them. She needs to eat to replenish her strength. If she continues to use her powers without rest for a prolonged period of time they will consume her until there is nothing left.
Good habits: She’s actually very loyal. Despite her father’s dislike of Superman she continues to fight crime to help him. She is also a very good friend to Zatanna – who gave her the golden clip in her hair – it has some magical residue on it that somewhat shields Calin’s mind from psychics. She’s also funny, often times blurting out her thoughts on an odd situation. Her blunt and open observations are thought of as ‘hilarious’.
Bad Habits: Being the daughter of a powerful conglomerate she is very stubborn – she will not agree to or do anything she doesn’t want to. She is inconsiderate and judgmental as well.
Oddities: She is completely enamored with Superman. She covets the time they get to spend together. Ironically enough she is not very fond of Superboy.
Superman breaks up with her and leaves for the trial. Now, I know it was shitty of him to do that but he doesn’t want her waiting for him just incase he and the other league members never come back. Calin is devastated of course but with the help of her friends she eventually gets over it and starts dating Jaime.
Speaking of friends I imagine she’s still best friends with Dick – I still have a head canon that the two of them are serious club rats. They also drag Raquel, Wally and Artemis out with them – the other teammates can’t really keep up with them. Thinking of calling them the ‘night owl crew’. Reggae clubs are their favorite. Anyway, her closeness with Dick is what confuses Jaime – he thinks they’re a couple (as does nearly everyone) but he assures Jaime that he and Calin have never been together and even coaches young Jaime one how to get Calin’s affection.
Speaking of relationships it’s no coincidence her colors have started matching Klarion’s. Since she was one of The Light’s first projects she still has connections to him and they come to be almost civil. Her palm blasts are very similar to his chaos magic, no? Despite her breakup with Superman she still reps his team and takes care of Conner and Metropolis while he’s gone – even when he comes back I see her sticking close to the city for her father. She still hates Roy – they are never going to get along. And when the original Roy comes back it just makes things worse.
