She became an on / off member of the Justice League and helped them in various crisises. She briefly left Scott, due to him being insensitive. She later resume her romance with him. After resigning from the JLA, she and Scott settled in Connecticut suburbs, but never stop helping people in time of need to the point she became a heavy hitter member of the Birds of Prey team.
