Profile: Halo

Violet Harper, Halo
First appearance: Batman and the Outsiders #1, 1983

Current status: it’s complicated. It was an alien being called an Aurikle that revived her to begin with when she was downed in Markovia before Batman found her, and now, her own body may be possessed by another being, while the Aurikle has since taken up residence in another host body (hey, I told you it was complicated!)

Was subjected to the following act of discrimination: Violet Harper was all but killed in 1993, when Mike W. Barr relaunched the Outsiders one more time, and during which time he all but deconstructed the team (after Geo-Force married in 1995, they disbanded).

What’s wrong with how this was done? What was the point? They couldn’t have thought of what else to do with Violet instead of slaying her, and then writing her body as taken over by another being? It was needless, and altogether redundant.

Any chance the Aurikle which was hosted inside her could possisbly revive her again?
