+ History

Chandi Gupta manifested metahuman powers at an early age and was given over by her parents to a strange cult. This cult believed she was the reincarnation of the Hindu god, Shiva. Chandi knew that the cult was evil, and she eventually escaped and made her way to London. There she contacted the Justice League Europe and helped them defeat Sonar. (JLE #50, 5.93) She returned to India with the JLE soon after this and was attacked by her supposed protector, the Mahayogi. She escaped and returned to London. (#52)

When she and the League went to Nepal, she encountered a boy with powers similar to hers. This boy was killed and Maya learned that the cult was a front for the Overmaster's plan to destroy Earth. This link allowed the Overmaster's Cadre to temporarily possess her. The Mahayogi turned on the Cadre and sacrificed himself to free Maya. (#63-64) After the JLI's battle with the Overmaster, the JLE was disbanded and Maya chose to give her parents one more chance. (#67) She is now presumably living with her parents in India and is occasionally active in adventuring. (Wonder Woman #174-175) She can manifest a mystic bow, whose exact powers she is still discovering.
