character: color refined rendition of Black Dawn
from "Black Shadow"
Years ago, a Eastern European-born CIA operative named Dawn was assigned to investigate a series of terrorist bombings along the former Soviet republics. When Dawn discovered that a rouge agent was behind the bombings, her superiors double-crossed her and left her for dead. Now, she reemerges as Black Dawn, the leader of an international terrorist group of the same name. Other than issuing threats and demands from powerful nations, little is known about the group's agenda, except Dawn is seeking revenge against her former colleagues. Setting her base in Southeastern Canada, she committed several attacks on Eastern Seaboard cities including Boston, Philadelphia and mostly New York City. It was in Manhattan where she first lock horns with Black Shadow
and his team of vigilantes, and she is determined to find a way of stopping him before he tries to put a stop to her organization.
