Continuity from SuperFriends Comic Book
In 1977, Wenonah Littlebird soon takes on the superhero identity, Owlwoman. In her first adventure as her costumed alter ego, she helps Hawkman and his wife Hawkgirl dismantle a bomb in the darkness of an Oklahoma field.
Continuity from Earth-One
On the parallel-universe of Earth-One, Wenonah Littlebird was offered a chance to become a member of the Global Guardians, a team of international heroes, and she accepted. This would make her the only American citizen to join the international super-hero team the Global Guardians.
Wenonah was offered a chance to become a member of the Global Guardians, a team of international heroes, and she accepted. While on the team, she fell for her teammate Jack O'Lantern, and the two quickly became a couple.
After Jack O'Lantern left the Global Guardians, Owlwoman went to Bialya and was brainwashed into joining the Queen Bee's army. The two ex-Global Guardians helped the Queen Bee take over the world. Jack O'Lantern and Owlwoman were manipulated by the Queen Bee into forcing the other Global Guardians under her control. In a battle with the Justice League, Owlwoman betrayed her teammates and killed the impostor of Jack O'Lantern. She later found the real Jack O'Lantern alive in a dungeon, as well as Doctor Mist.
After the Global Guardians retired, Wenonah and her former teammate Daniel Cormac were brainwashed by the Queen Bee and helped her to stage a coup against Bialya's military dictator Rumaan Harjavti. Later, Cormac and she staged an elaborate ruse to create public distrust in the Justice League Europe. This strategy resulted in the destruction of the Global Guardians' headquarters, the Dome.
