Bio: Elizabeth Alderman was a New York City councilwoman with high ambitions. She coveted the Mayor's seat and campaigned for this position with a hard line stance against super-hero vigilantism. Her primary target in this crusade were the New Titans, who at the time, were still held in high regard by city officials. Alderman tried, unsuccessfully, to bring numerous lawsuits against the Titans on charges of destruction of public property. Alderman initiated an injunction which prevented the Titans from using their former island headquarters in the East River. One of the hallmarks of Alderman's initiative was the capture of the fugitive mercenary known as Deathstroke the Terminator. Even this however, turned into a public relations nightmare, as it was soon revealed that the man she had captured was not truly Deathstroke at all, but an impostor.
