Jade Nguyen (infamously known as Cheshire) is one of the most dangerous assassins in the world. She serves as a member of the League of Assassins and is both the enemy and occasional lover of Nightwing's ally, Arsenal.[1]


The Noble, Obnoxious, and The IneptEdit

Chesire arrives in Gotham City, having been tracked by Arsenal and by extension, Robin (as he was tracking down the League of Assassins) and lures them on a boat near Gotham City harbor and distracts both her trackers and Nightwing with assassins and makes a hasty exit as the group fight amongst one another. Enacting her real plan to use a super weapon to render Gotham City's air breathable and kill all those in the city, the group of heroes intervene and battle Cheshire and her assassins. Underestimating their capabilities due to their status/former status as sidekicks, she is later defeated by Nightwing and her plot with the League of Assassins is thwarted by Robin an Arsenal.[2]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Cheshire is a dangerous assassin, capable of battling the likes of Starfire, Arsenal, Green Arrow, and an amnesiac Red Hood with both her combat skills, usage of technology, poisons, and tactical ability.[3] She was also able to fight the likes of Nightwing in combat, knocking the air out of him with one single kick and pin him down, though was still ultimately defeated.[2]


  • Poison & Poisoned Fingernails: Jade's poisons are administer via cuts from her finger nails and/or by air. These poisons are capable of nearly killing Arsenal with ease and powerful enough to affect Starfire despite her alien physiology.[3]
  • Teleporter/Other Tech (formerly): Jade formerly possesses technology that allows her to teleport and turn herself intangible at will. This is seemingly controlled by a technological device on her wrist.[4]
