Event Timeline


A flying hero who was a member of Honor Guard. She joined somewhere in the mid-1960s.


While she has long since retired, since 2008 her daughter has taken up the mantle of Hummingbird.


She wears a flight suit, and carries a small gun which is called a "buzz-ray." Based on a comment made by the modern Hummingbird, it may be a sonic weapon of some sort.
