Granny Goodness is a high-ranking official in Darkseid's empire, running the Orphanage and commanding the Furies. Her doppelganger Gretchen Goode operated on Earth as the founder of Goode World Studios and a member of the the Light.

Personality

Granny Goodness is cruel, ruthless, and devoted to serving the will of her master Darkseid, though she is not afraid of deviating from his orders or interests in order to overcome her adversaries. She lords over her underlings and peers, such as Big Barda and Desaad respectively, often inflicting pain upon the former for any transgressions, calling it discipline, and cowing the latter into compliance. Yet she is truly a sadist, delighting in the excruciating pain she inflicts on others and has no qualms with harming her subordinates if it means killing her enemies.[1]

Physical appearance

Granny Goodness wears a dark blue suit beneath golden armor, a red cape, and a headdress that frames her face and holds her hair back, with the Omega symbol above her forehead.[1]

History

Early history

At some point Granny used a device to create a duplicate of herself to act on Earth as Gretchen Goode, alongside a duplicate Overlord.[2]

The Orphanage
November 07, 01:20 UTC

Granny Goodness was perplexed to find out that five Leaguers had tracked their headquarters via an ion trail, when they had a clear policy of boom tubing back and forth from raid sites. Big Barda explained that she did it deliberately to lay a trap and confront them head on. Granny chastised Barda for going against protocol and over her head, declaring that she would decide the time for conflict.

Moments later, Granny ordered Barda to open fire on the Leaguers, but Superman, Wonder Woman and Hawkwoman managed to beak into the base amidst the confusion. Granny saw through their ruse and ordered Barda to summon the Furies to waylay the interlopers. Despite Desaad's protests and fearing that the ensuing skirmish would destroy Darkseid's Ghost Dimension device, Granny decided to activate it and use it on everyone in its radius, including the Furies. In spite of the device's potency, Superman managed to extricate himself and the others from its energy bubble. When the three Leaguers hurtled at Granny, she boom tubed them into outer space and then boom tubed the Orphanage away.[1]

As members of the Justice League launched an attack on the Orphanage, Granny activated her Ghost Dimension device and used Halo to spread the Anti-Life Equation to the Leaguers.[4]

 
The Orphanage
January 26, 01:17 UTC

A squad of the Team infiltrated the Orphanage and found Granny at the device's controls. After taunting Geo-Force, Granny had the Leaguers under her control subdue the squad, and then placed them under her control. A second squad arrived, with Miss Martian brain blasting Granny and her thralls, but Overlord activated the device, disrupting Miss Martian's efforts enough for Granny to push Halo out into the field and take control of the second squad. With no opposition left, Granny gloated as the Anti-Life field spread further into space.[4]

 
The Orphanage
January 26, 02:48 UTC

After the device on Earth allowing Granny and Gretchen to maintain separate bodies was destroyed, Gretchen merged back with Granny. Victor Stone followed Gretchen to the Orphanage and freed Halo from Granny's control. Halo was then able to undo the effect of the Anti-Life Equation on the Team and League. Granny attempted to punish Halo, but she easily held Granny in a force field. After the Ghost Dimension device was destroyed, an enraged Granny broke free, but Halo blasted her. Superboy informed her that Vandal Savage had given them Halo's location, before Granny used a Fatherbox to boom tube away.[2]
