Powers and Abilities

Tasmia wields the hereditary power of the shadow champions of Talok VIII, the same power once wielded by Lyrissa and Lydea Mallor. She can cast fields of darkness that obscures vision, as well as focus the darkness for short blasts.


Tasmia Mallor is the latest descendant of a family of heroes that has defended Talok VIII for centuries with their power to project darkness. She, though, was deemed too zealously protective of Talok’s unique traditions by a planetary leadership which wished to have greater contact with other worlds, including joining the United Planets, and she was therefore removed from her position planetary champion.

She traveled throughout the U.P., eventually taking the code-name Umbra and joining the Legion of Super-Heroes during their open call for new members which followed their unfortunate encounter with the Emerald Eye of Ekron, which she considers something of a consolation prize.


Tasmia, like all Talokians, has light blue skin and pointed ears. She has long, black hair. Her outfit is dark blue/black, with a blue cape.


As her namesake would indicate, Tasmia is dark and private. She is frequently annoyed by the upbeat nature of most Legionnaires, and enjoys combat.
