Around the second millennium BCE, Ishtar was born to Vandal Savage, who had established himself in Babylonia as the demigod hero called Marduk. At some point, a star creature tried to enslave Babylonia and Ishtar fought the incursion, along her father and brother Nabu, who perished in the battle.

Ishtar and Marduk eventually vanquished the creature and threw its remains into the Artic sea. Henceforth, Ishtar and her father became known as "The Light", for leading their people through their darkest hour.[1]
