HISTORY

Daughter of Olympic archery medallist Bonnie King and Bernell Jones, Cissie took the Arrowette identity at the insistence of her mother as a result of a psychological transference disorder. After overseeing several years of training, Cissie's mother took her into battle with the Spazz in Manchester, Alabama. Local heroes Impulse and Max Mercury intervened, and Mercury later filed child endangerment charges against Bonnie King. The charges were upheld, and Cissie was made a ward of the state and placed in the Elias School in western Pennsylvania, where she was under the care of Dr. Marcy Money. According to Dr. Money's files, she accidentally gave Cissie the idea of being a better archer than her mother, effectively restarting Cissie's career as Arrowette. Since that time, Cissie has resurfaced as Arrowette, and has joined with Young Justice. While her age and innocence suggest she is harmless, Arrowette is an extremely competent archer, preferring to use trick arrows like those once utilized by Green Arrow and Speedy.

Arrowette left the team after losing control of her own temper.  After the death of her counselor who was killed by her jealous ex-husband, Arrowette went on a rampage and hunted down the killer.  A last minute save by Superboy prevented an arrow from killing the man, but sent Arrowette over the edge.  Fearing that her presence on the team may bring more heat among them, Arrowette destroyed her bow and walked out of the team, but not before putting Superboy in his place and getting one last kiss from Robin. (Young Justice #17)
