Dinah Soar is a fictional superheroine in the Marvel Universe. She was created by John Byrne and first appeared in West Coast Avengers (Vol. 2) #46 (July 1989).

Fictional character biography[edit]

Dinah Soar was born in the Savage Land. Her lineage is never revealed and it is unknown if she was actually a mutant or of alien descent.

Because she never spoke English, her background remains entirely unknown, but she became a founding member of the Great Lakes Avengers when Mr. Immortal first assembled the team.[1] She is shown utilizing the ability to calm Mr. Immortal when he becomes overwhelmed with stress and rage after he returns to life.[2] When they discovered that they were soulmates, the two became romantically involved.

Dinah Soar accompanied Mr. Immortal in many exploits, until she was killed by Maelstrom in a battle.[3] Her death plunged Mr. Immortal into a deep depression. He later recovered after defeating and capturing Deathurge, who had been taking the souls of his loved ones.[4] Dinah Soar is later seen by Doorman, along with the other deceased GLA members, in a limbo-like afterlife.[5]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Dinah Soar had natural wings and, with extensive training, she was an agile flyer. She could use the razor tips of her wings as efficient weapons. She had limited sonic abilities and could project waves of sonic force. She also had empathic abilities with which she could calm Mr. Immortal each time he returned to life. She once said that her race does not appear to age.[6]
