The Enchantress is a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Bob Haney and Howard Purcell, the character made her first appearance in Strange Adventures #187 (April 1966).[1]

In the DC Universe, the Enchantress, whose real name is June Moone, is a freelance artist and powerful sorceress typically depicted as an antihero and hero on account of the Enchantress persona, coming into fruition from the possession between June the magical being that once called herself The Succubus. One of the world's most dangerous magic users, she struggles to contain the dark personality and intentions of her Enchantress persona. She is a member of several groups such as the Suicide Squad and, as a hero, a member of Shadowpact and the Sentinels of Magic. In more recent continuities, the Enchantress is instead an interdimensional witch possessing the human June Moone and is considered a separate entity from June although the two share the same body. This version of the character is cast as a member of Justice League Dark as June Moone while both June and Enchantress would serve as a re-occurring member of the Suicide Squad, appearing in a new incarnation of the team in the fifth volume of the comic series as well as appearing as a member of its paranormal counterpart.

The Enchantress would make an appearance in mainstream media, portrayed by Cara Delevingne in the 2016 film Suicide Squad as both June Moone and the Enchantress, the latter portrayed as a separate entity possessing her body. The Enchantress entity would also be portrayed by Samantha Liana Cole on the show Legends of Tomorrow, which is part of the Arrowverse. Enchantress and June Moone would make an appearance in Injustice 2 similar to their recent depictions although the Enchantress entity, the playable fighter, would describe herself as an actual succubus.

Publication history

The Enchantress ("The Switcheroo-Witcheroo" as she was bannered on the cover) first appeared in the nine-page lead story of Strange Adventures #187 (April 1966),[2] the National Comics (now DC Comics) flagship science fiction anthology title.[3] She then appeared in two eight-page appearances in the same title: Strange Adventures #191 (August 1966)[4] and 200 (May 1967),[5] written by Bob Haney and drawn by co-creator Howard Purcell.[6] The first two stories were reprinted in Adventure Comics #417 (March 1972) and 419 (May 1972), her only appearances in the 1970s.

Following this, the Enchantress appeared in two linked Supergirl tales in The Superman Family #204–205 (November/December 1980–January/February 1981).[7][8] Writer Jack C. Harris and artist Trevor Von Eeden proposed to DC an all-female super-team named the "Power Squad" which would have included the Enchantress, but were turned down.[9] The character appeared in a two-part story featuring the Forgotten Villains in the Superman team-up title DC Comics Presents #77–78 (January–February 1985).[10][11] She was one of the super-characters in Legends #3 (January 1987)[12] and 6 (April 1987),[13] followed by the origin of the Suicide Squad in Secret Origins (vol. 2) #14 (May 1987)[14] and the immediately following Suicide Squad series issues #1–8 (May 1987–December 1987) and 12–16 (April 1988–August 1988), written by John Ostrander; and The Spectre (vol. 2) #11 (February 1988).

Eleven years later, she returned in Green Lantern (vol. 3) #118 (November 1999) and Day of Judgment #1–5 (all November 1999), written by Geoff Johns with art by Matt Smith and Steve Mitchell. She next guest-starred in another DC Comics miniseries JLA: Black Baptism #1–4 (May–August 2001) by Ruben Diaz and Sean Smith (writers) and Jesus Saiz (artist) after which the Enchantress disappeared again until the Day of Vengeance miniseries #1–5 (June 2005–November 2005) by Bill Willingham, who also used her character through the first 16 issues (July 2006–October 2007) of the Shadowpact series that followed directly from Day of Vengeance. Matthew Sturges wrote the title from issue #17–25 (November 2007–July 2008). During that time she also made appearances in the major DC Comics crossover series Countdown, in issues #29 (October 17, 2007) and 28 (October 24, 2007), the associated Countdown to Mystery #1 (November 2007), and one issue of The Trials of Shazam!, #11 (March 2008).

Since the cancellation of Shadowpact, the Enchantress has continued to make minor appearances in the DC Universe, including DC Universe Holiday Special (2008), and the miniseries Reign in Hell #2–8 (September 2008–April 2009). She appeared in Action Comics #885 (March 2010), part of a new cycle of stories by James Robinson which led up to the DC Comics 2010 limited series War of the Supermen.

When DC relaunched their entire line in September 2011, it included a new team comic book titled Justice League Dark which featured the magical characters of the DCU: Shade, the Changing Man; Madame Xanadu; Deadman; Zatanna; John Constantine and Mindwarp. Their first enemy was the Enchantress gone mad.

Fictional character biography

June Moone[Note 1] was a freelance artist who was invited to a costume party at an old castle, and stumbled upon a secret chamber where an unknown magical being (later named as Dzamor)[7][Note 2] empowered her to fight an evil presence in the castle. Saying the words "The Enchantress", her appearance changes from the blonde-haired June to the black-haired and costumed Enchantress and defeats a minotaur creature from a tapestry.[2] Soon after, she defeats a monster at Cape Kennedy[4] and a mirage of a demonic creature manipulated by a crook.[5]

In her next appearance, however, the Enchantress is a misguided character fighting Supergirl, who prevents her gaining omnipotent magical power and cancelling all other superpowers on Earth, twice.[7][8][Note 3] Her villainous side takes over after this, and the Enchantress then continues her career as a member of the Forgotten Villains[10][11] and part of the army of supervillains during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.[15]

Suicide Squad

Main article: Suicide Squad

She is next recruited into the newly formed 'Task Force X', soon to be known as the 'Suicide Squad', on the chance that she could keep her villainous side in check. In her first mission, she uses massive magical energy to defeat Brimstone, which sends her over the edge and she becomes temporarily truly villainous.[12] During her tenure with the Suicide Squad, June Moone's control over her Enchantress side becomes weaker, and she destroys at least one mission because of this;[16] teammate Deadshot is tasked with taking her out should she get beyond control. Eventually, Madame Xanadu diagnoses that June's loss of control is because she began using her powers before she could control them, and the only way to counteract this is not to use them until her aura, which protects her from the evil influences in magic, regains its power.

Madame Xanadu gives June a necklace that she cannot remove which, together with a ring to be held by someone else, creates a feedback loop preventing the Enchantress from using magic for evil as a temporary measure. She also raises an army to destroy the town and perform terror attacks as stated in the first mission.[17][18] June then discovers that her Enchantress persona is, in fact, a separate evil entity from another dimension fused with her, not simply a manifestation of magic. She learned this when she and other Squad members joined Nightshade on a mission to free her homeland, the Nightshade Dimension. There, she found out that the Incubus, who took over that dimension, is the brother of the Dzamor, who merges with her to give her the power of the Enchantress. The Incubus[19] rips his sister out of June, leaving her powerless. Shortly afterwards, June disappears from the Suicide Squad for unknown reasons.

Day of Judgment

Main article: Day of Judgment (comics)

Eleven years later, after a storm caused by war in Hell, June breaks free from the Ostrander Mental Institute in New Jersey,[Note 4] where she has been for an indeterminate period of time.[20][Note 5] Refusing to join with the superheroes fighting a demon invasion on Earth and in Hell, the newly freed Enchantress is possessed by Deadman to manipulate her into helping the fight in Hell.[21] Once there, June's Enchantress persona is murdered by Sebastian Faust as a purely evil act, the only way to reignite the fires of Hell.[22]

JLA: Black Baptism

June Moone is left in a semi-catatonic state after the removal of her Enchantress persona and is committed to 'Elysium Fields Sanitarium' outside Detroit.[23] Faust removes her from the sanitarium and reunites her with her Enchantress persona – who had not been killed by him and has been masquerading as 'Anita Souleata', a succubus working with a group of Mafia-styled demons to create a gateway to Hell and resurrect Hermes Trismegestus, a mad sorcerer who wanted to destroy life on Earth. When June and the Enchantress are re-combined, a new entity called the Soulsinger is temporarily created, which fades away shortly after, leaving the Enchantress behind – once again a separate entity, but cut off from her powers. June Moone is taken to be looked after by Doctor Occult.[24]

Day of Vengeance

Main article: Day of Vengeance

The Ragman digs the Enchantress out from under a destroyed forest after the Spectre, bent on killing all magical beings and places on Earth, kills nearly 700 sorcerers, only breaking off when attacked.[25] The Enchantress divines the seduction of the Spectre by Eclipso/Jean Loring, mentally from the safety of the pocket-dimensional 'Oblivion Bar', where many magical entities have gone to escape him. She then leaves to challenge the Spectre on Earth, having first created a gun that can kill her should she turn evil again and offering it to the Ragman.[26] When she overloads again while channeling power from nearly everyone on Earth with magic capabilities to Captain Marvel so that he can defeat the Spectre,[27] she is put out of action by a punch from Blue Devil instead.[28] Recovering quickly enough to devise a plan to lure the Spectre into a trap,[29] the Enchantress helps with the reconstruction of the Rock of Eternity in Gotham City, after facing Doctor Occult, who has been possessed by the spirit of Envy.[30] During the Day of Vengeance series, the Enchantress, the Ragman, Blue Devil and a number of other magical entities form the "Shadowpact" super-team.

Shadowpact

Main article: Shadowpact

The Shadowpact are summoned by the Phantom Stranger when the town of Riverrock, Wyoming is entrapped in a giant bubble of blood and endangered by "the Pentacle", a team of supervillains,[31] whose goal is to sacrifice the townspeople in order to summon the Sun King, an ancient rogue god from another dimension. Thirty-seven people perish before the Shadowpact manage to defeat them; the Enchantress is able to tap into the magical powers of Strega, one of the Pentacle and destroy the bubble from within. She also kills one of the Pentacle, the White Bunny, on the spur of the moment after he leaves them and frees the Shadowpact.[32] Due to unexpected side effects of the magic spells needed to defeat the villains, the outside world believe that the Shadowpact has been dead for a year and they are honored with a team statue set inside a park in Metropolis.[33]

The Enchantress then helps the Ragman defeat an assassin sent to kill him, in the course of which they are attacked by the Wild Hunt of legend and temporarily transformed into mystical hellhounds.[34] Shortly after, her spells are all that save Jim Rook, the Nightmaster, after he is stabbed by his own sword fighting Etrigan the Demon; staying at his side for days without sleep and keeping him alive by trading a day of her life for a day of his until he heals himself by the power of his sword.[35] After the Shadowpact are seconded to Checkmate to infiltrate Kobra's organization,[36] she then helps foil Doctor Gotham's plan to destroy Chicago by entering his inter-dimensional cloak and destroying most of the thousands of magical artifacts contained within.[37] She takes an apprentice, Laura Fell, the Warlock's Daughter[38] before they both unwittingly almost allow a race of mindless creatures called "the Unbound" to reach Earth while creating a portal to the Land of Nightshades, where the Nightmaster, Nightshade and the Ragman are trapped. She frees her colleagues and the inhabitants of the Nightshades Dimension by creating a magical virus to combat the mage-created virus that created the Unbound – mixing a possessed creatures' soul with the essence of the Nightmaster's virtues. When the Nightmaster decides to stay in the Nightshade Dimension, the Enchantress kisses him.[39][Note 6] On returning to Earth, she participates in the final battle against the Sun King.[40]

The Shadowpact, including the Enchantress, helped Captain Atom return to Mirabai's dimension – where General Sam Lane (Lois Lane's father) has moved the main base of his secret anti-Kryptonian 'Project 7734'.[41]

The New 52

In 2011, DC Comics cancelled all their titles and relaunched 52 new comics as part of The New 52. One of these was Justice League Dark, which features a number of supernatural-themed heroes including Shade, the Changing Man, Zatanna, John Constantine, and Madame Xanadu coming together to fight an insane Enchantress who has become separated from June Moone.[42] During the crisis, the Enchantress' powers begin randomly appearing across the world, causing chaos: the Sphinx of Gizah comes to life and attacks tourists and hundreds of duplicates of June Moone appear to search for the original. While the Justice League tries to intervene, the Enchantress manifests as a colossal monster made up of the bodies of hundreds of June Moones and defeats Superman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg with ease. John Constantine deduces that Madame Xanadu said an incantation that separated June Moone from the Enchantress and reads an incantation that reverses the spell, reuniting the Enchantress and June Moone again.[43]

DC Rebirth

The Enchantress serves as a member of the Suicide Squad again and during the "Black Vault" story arc, they retrieve an alien item that serves as a portal to the Phantom Zone. However, once they bring it back to Belle Reve Penitentiary, it causes all the inmates to go into a killing frenzy except Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller, Killer Croc and Rick Flag. June Moone lets the Enchantress out, who also remains unaffected due to being a magical entity. She manages to get Harley Quinn to the Vault but is incapacitated by Zod when he sucks the air out of her lungs.

In one of the later issues, June Moone was called upon by Amanda Waller to help a military general whose house had been possessed by a demon. She turns into the Enchantress, but she ends up scheming with the demon to escape Amanda Waller and destroy the world. She turns back to June to have the demon remove the bomb device and set the Enchantress free, but the demon attacks her and frightens her. June, in retaliation, unleashes magic and banishes the demon without turning into the Enchantress.

During the Justice League vs. Suicide Squad storyline, the Enchantress is sent with the Suicide Squad to stop a cult from sinking an island as a sacrifice to their god. The Justice League arrives and clashes with the Suicide Squad and she defeats Superman with ease once she realizes he's sensitive to magic. When Maxwell Lord breaks into Belle Reve Penitentiary along with Rustam, Lobo, Doctor Polaris, the Emerald Empress and Johnny Sorrow, the original Suicide Squad, she threatens Maxwell Lord only to be quickly overwhelmed by his telepathic powers.

Characterization

Love interests

Despite having been characterized as having some disdain for men,[44] June has formulated romances with characters throughout her history:

In comics, June's first love interest in publication was Alan Dell, whom was attracted to the Enchantress persona not knowing that the Enchantress was also June herself. Sebastian Faust was also featured as one of her love interests; Faust and June/Enchantress first met during Day of Judgement, where the two's brief friendship is interrupted when Faust sacrifices Enchantress in order to reignite the flames of Hell in a bid to eventually stop Asmodeus from completely gaining the power of the Spectre. Attracted to June, Sebastian is guilt ridden by his actions and stays his distance as she returns to Alan.[44] Sometime later, he returns to help June as the separation of the Enchantress and June slowly kills her and voiced continual hope that the two would be in a romantic relationship should he find a way to restore her Enchantress personality in order to save her from death. Eventually, Faust succeeds in doing so while seemingly sacrificing himself in a battle with a powerful sorcerer.[23] Ragman was revealed to also have been attracted to Enchantress although when he kissed her, she vehemently rejected his advances.[44] In recent continuities, Killer Croc also has dated Enchantress, the two of them subtly pushed together by Amanda Waller as a mean of controlling the both of them later while the two established a genuine connection.[45] This would come to fruition when Killer Croc's life is leverage against June in her membership of Suicide Squad Black, a mythical counterpart to Suicide Squad, as Waller pits her against a re-invented version of Sebastian Faust (whom she doesn't share a romance with in the new continuity) and his eco-terrorist cohorts alongside the rest of the team, facing similarly manipulations.[46]

In media, June's most prominent love interest is Rick Flag in the DC Extended Universe, the former chosen by Amanda Waller deliberately so the two of them would form a close bond and become lovers, allowing her to have leverage over the two. Their relationship would come to an end in the sequel of Suicide Squad due to the death of Rick Flag.

Powers and abilities

The Enchantress is a powerful sorceress, considered being among the most dangerous of mystical villains to the superhuman community and one of the most dangerous magic practitioners on Earth in the DC Universe alongside peers such as the Wizard and Sebastian Faust.[47] She possesses an array of magical powers including flight, the ability to phase through solid walls, the transformation of objects, and the power to transform her own appearance. She also could transform into her magical state by calling "Enchantress".[48][49] A unique aspect of her power is her sensitivity to magic; She was able to link to the essence of Eclipso in the Day of Vengeance story line, using the connection to speak Eclipso's thoughts to the rest of the group, and has also mystically tracked the Spectre by divining his magical trail. She has also been seen to remotely access another magic-user's power, as she did when she channeled the power of almost all magical beings on Earth through her to Captain Marvel to aid him in his battle with the Spectre, and again with Strega of the Pentacle, though all of the magicians she came into contact with allowed her to tap into them.[50] Later portrayals of the character in the New 52 also grants her enough power to warp reality at will and is powerful enough to defeat Superman in battle.[51]

While preferring to use magic, June is considered both an average athlete and hand-to-hand combatant.[48] She is also a skilled artist[49] and recent incarnations of June is able to call upon magical powers without invoking the Enchantress entity. As a sorceress, Enchantress has access to several arcane items: she has possession of the Nightwitch's "Herne-Ramsgate Cauldron", which allows her to find almost every magical creature in the DC Universe.[52] Her magical hat is also said to conceal various magical tricks within it.[49]

Other versions

Flashpoint

In the alternate timeline of the 2011 Flashpoint storyline, the Enchantress is a member of the Secret Seven.[53] It is revealed she is a traitor when she turns Captain Thunder back to his mortal form after which Billy Batson is killed, though by this stage she had already murdered most of the Secret Seven; she states she does not care which side she is on as long as she can cause pain and havoc.[54] The Enchantress is killed by Kal-El landing on her.[55]

Notes

  1. ^ Her surname has been spelled both "Moon" and "Moone", but it was originally "Moone".
  2. ^ Post-Crisis called "Dhazmor" in a flashback sequence – "Devil to Pay" in Suicide Squad #15 (July 1988).
  3. ^ After the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, this was retconned to have been Power Girl instead of Supergirl, as Supergirl had been removed from DC continuity.[6]
  4. ^ A reference to Suicide Squad writer John Ostrander.
  5. ^ Which presents some continuity issues: according to the "Day of Judgment Timeline" – a text piece in Day of Judgment: Secret Files and Origins #1 (1999) - June Moone/the Enchantress was left imprisoned in the Nightshade Dimension three years prior, which contradicts accepted DC history for the Suicide Squad. The piece also explains her appearance on Earth in Day of Judgment as "she is later freed under mysterious and unrevealed circumstances".
  6. ^ A minor theme from earlier is that the Enchantress hates men. On one occasion the Ragman kisses her and she recoils (Day of Vengeance #1), and the same happens with Blue Devil (Day of Vengeance #3). It is later hinted that she may have been abused, although this may have been a demonic-induced torture. This vignette could be an indication that her feelings may have simply been altered by the removal of the evil Enchantress persona.
