The Absence has no super human powers; however she is a billionaire, with extremely high intelligence and fantastic leadership skills.
The Absence, formally Una Nemo, was a Gotham City socialite and one of the many "Bruce Wayne Girls" that Alfred was fond of. With her relationship with Bruce Wayne never flourishing because of his constant knack of keeping her at arms length rather than embracing her, she was left alone and abandoned.
Nemo was attending a yacht party, when a jewel heist began, she fought back but the thieves shot her at point blank range in the forehead. Her body was found two weeks later and put to rest. In reality Nemo survived the attack thanks to a medical condition, known as Dandy Walker Syndrome, meaning her conscious processes were maintained by a thin film of grey matter. As a consequence of increased blood flow to the brain her intelligence significantly increased.
Disguising herself she decided to attend her own funeral and reveal what had happened to her; however she was shocked to discover that nobody was particularly upset at her passing and Bruce Wayne did not even attend the funeral.
After Bruce Wayne founded Batman Incorporated, Nemo expected him to get Batman to look into her death, which he again failed to do. Tired of going unnoticed she set out to gain Batman and Bruce Wayne’s attention!
