|Bio: Boston Brand was murdered during a circus act. His sprit was
given the chance to find the murderer behind his death and restore the
balance. After being aided by Batman, Boston was able to figure out who
killed him. Boston works under the alias of "Deadman" and is able to
inhabit the body of any individual. By inhabiting the body, people can
see and hear him; otherwise, he is just a ghost.
After fulfilling this part of his life, Boston was still unable to rest.
With knowledge from The Master of Nanda Parbat that Boston was still
around because he had to avenge another's death: The Master himself.
Devil Ray later showed up along with a crew of Legion members and stole
a mystic totem filled with the souls of hundreds of monks.
Boston inhabited Superman's body for a short time before they arrived at
Gorilla City, where Grodd was planning to use the mystic totem to turn
everyone on Earth into apes. The Justice League were eventually able to
stop Grodd, but along the way Boston made a fatal mistake: Devil Ray
snuck up behind Diana and nearly shot her. Deadman inhabited Batman's
body and picked up a gun and shot Devil Ray, killing him.
By killing Devil Ray, Boston had made the scales unbalanced again and
was forced to remain on Earth until he was needed to help tip the scales
back once more.
