Dana Dearden was a psychologically unstable woman who was fascinated by larger than life heroic figures. When Superman arrived in Metropolis, her interest in mythological figures was transferred to the Man of Steel. While working as a makeup assistant at WGBS, she met Jimmy Olsen when he became an anchor for that news network. She asked Jimmy out on a date, and Jimmy was immediately taken with the attractive Dana.
One of their first dates was to Metropolis Museum of Art, which was featuring an exhibit of ancient coins which were supposed to grant their possessor super-powers. Scavenger attacked the museum, hoping to recover the coins, after coming up with a suitable distraction for Superman. The Alpha Centurion was on scene, however, and stopped Scavenger from stealing the coins, but in the confusion, Dana secretly pocketed them.
Dana continued with her relationship with Jimmy for several weeks, pretending to be completely infatuated with him, but really she had dated him to get a chance to meet Superman. When "Superman's pal" didn't deliver, she beat him and stole his signal watch, summoning Superman.
