Elly Mae Skaggs, also known as Skeeter, was originally an ordinary human who was turned into a vampire three days after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. She then killed her parents, terrorizing her hometown of Fayerville, South Carolina and creating a progeny of vampires for more than a century. By the late 20th century, Skeeter's killings expanded into Gotham City and eventually gained the attentions of Batman and Superman. Skeeter fought the two heroes until she is ultimately impaled with a stake by Batman and is destroyed. Following Skeeter's demise, Batman took care in eliminating Skeeter's remaining vampires.
