Description

Maritess answered an ad in the paper to become the maid of super heroes ! Retrieved by Wonder Woman from her home in Zamboanga, she was taken to The Hall of Justice where she cleaned up after the heroes.

She toiled as many immigrants to the US, subjected to the perceived abuse laid on by the Superfriends.


Description

Maritess is a small, nondescript filipina woman.


Personality

Maritess is a martyr. She feels the world has treated her unfairly and is finally willing to talk about it. She is very passive aggressive in her expression of her perceived abuse and concerns of the Superfriends’ lifestyle.

She is finally speaking out against her antagonistic employers.


Quotes

“It’s so hard…”

“I can’t do anything…”

“That’s not fair ! It’s not right !”

“I don’t have to worry about Flash because he’s very fast. He’s in ; he’s out ; I don’t see him !”


DC Universe History

She’s the Superfriends’ maid. What more do you need ?

If you wanted to use her in a serious campaign, it should be a darker, grittier or more realistic genre. She could write a tell-all book (with a ghost-writer of course) or leak information to the tabloids about the sexual harassment, abuse what else she has observed with the heroes. In fact, Lex Luthor, upon hearing of her plight, finances the best legal team available for the greatest circus-trial lawsuit of the century !

Of course, the soundbits from the trial being used by every media outlet available in a massive smear campaign are just a small side effect of Lex’s very real concern for Maritess’ plight.
