Fictional character biography[edit]

Mary Kay Tanner was born in Peckinpath, Texas. Her mother often experimented with illegal and untested drugs to get high. As a result, Mary Kay was born with meta-human powers that gave her leatherlike skin and razor sharp claws. When she was 16, Leather became the leader of gang that smuggled illegal immigrants from Mexico into the U.S. Leather was captured and sent to Slabside Penitentiary. However, she was freed by the Joker and returned to smuggling in Mexico.

One Year Later[edit]

Leather is seen among the captured villains in Salvation Run. During this time she also made friends with the female villains Giganta and Magneta.
