Reality Manipulation: The Dream Weaver can alter reality to make her dreams and wishes come true. She can rearrange matter on a small scale, alter her appearance, and fly. Using her power in this fashion was somewhat draining for her. She can generate dreams for others, which allows her to absorb the emotional energy released by those trapped within her dreams.
Barbie was born in the mystic realm of the Many Moons of Munnopor giving her great mystical powers. Her parents abandoned her as an infant leaving her on the front steps of the church Iglesia de la Virgen Santa de los Cielos on Earth.
The Dweller-in-Darkness claimed one of the dream images of a sleeping mortal from the realm of Nightmare, this turned out to be Barbie Robb, she awoke from her nightmare, suffering from a hangover from too many Tequila Sunrises with her friend Marty. She wished that the hangover would just go away, and suddenly it did, and she felt alive with energy. She wished her apartment into a palace, as a voice (the Dweller) explained to her that she was not dreaming, and could really alter reality as she wished. She whipped up a fancy costume for herself, but then began to feel weakened form the energy expenditure. The Dweller told her that while reality manipulation would be draining, she could gain all the power she wanted if she obtained the Book of the Vishanti from Dr. Strange.
