Jean Loring is the ex-wife of Ray palmer the Atom. Rayís career had taken itís toll on their marriage and they divorced. Recently, Jean suffered a mental breakdown and decided she wanted to resume her relationship with Ray, she believed that the surest way to do this would be to endanger a loved one of a hero, sending all of the superheroes running back to their spouses and other relatives (including Ray). Using one of Ray's old costumes, she shrunk herself and attempted to cause a minor stroke in Sue Dibny (the Elongated Man's wife), but accidentally applied too much pressure to Dibny's brain, killing her.
Panicking, she faked an attack on her own life and set up Captain Boomerang to attack Jack Drake. Loring left a gun for Drake so he would be able to kill Boomerang in self-defence, leading everyone to believe that Boomerang had been the killer. Unfortunately, Drake was also killed, leaving his son Tim Drake (Robin) an orphan.
As she had originally planned, during the trauma Ray returned to her. However, she accidentally gave herself away by revealing information on the Boomerang/Drake murders, something that only the killer would have known. Ray had to have her institutionalised at Arkham Asylum.
While she was institutionalised, the supernatural entity known as Eclipso manipulated her into being his new host so she could seduce the Spectre into destroying magic.
