Fictional character biography
Mayflower is a member of the Force of July, a patriotic themed superhero team run by the United States government. She has the power to control and grow plant life at a rapid rate, animating vines to capture or ensnare her opponents. Mayflower wears a costume similar to that of a Pilgrim of colonial America, along with a long, brown cloak but without a hat or bonnet. Mayflower also speaks with an English accent.
Mayflower is the daughter of Rose Canton, the Golden Age villainess the Thorn. This makes her the half-sister of Jade (Jennie-Lynn Hayden) and Obsidian (Todd Rice). It is unclear if she knew Jade and Obsidian were her half-siblings. It is unrevealed who her biological father was.
Mayflower dies during the early events of the Janus Directive, a victim of Amanda Waller's need to portray that she had been replaced by a subservient doppelganger. In a violent confrontation, the Suicide Squad attacks the Force at their own home. Others are killed, including Mayflower's teammate Sparkler. Mayflower is garrotted by Suicide Squad member Ravan.
Powers and abilities
She can control all forms of plant life, causing them to grow and move at her will, and can secrete toxin extracts to kill or control minds.
