|Bios - Mercy Graves
|Voiced By: Lisa Edelstein
First Appearance: "A Little Piece of Home"
Position: Enemy, Luthor's Bodyguard
Bio: A tough young woman with a checkered past, Mercy Graves
serves as Lex Luthor's personal body guard and chauffeur. Originally the
leader of a gang of girl thieves, Mercy once daringly swiped Luthor's
briefcase from under the billionaire's nose. Naturally she didn't get
far before Luthor's men hunted her down, but rather than take revenge,
Luthor offered Mercy a job. He was impressed with her mixture of
ruthlessness and street savvy so he took her in, cleaned her up, and
made her his right-hand girl.
Though she usually relies on her cool and sardonic wit as her first form
of defense, Mercy can be very physical and is an absolute demon in a
fight. She uses a rough, street-form of kickboxing as her preferred form
of attack, and can take anyone this side of Superman in one-on-one
combat. She's also an expert with most forms of handheld weapons and has
no problem with using them when she has to.
Mercy is loyal and respectful to Luthor, but never servile. She's not
particularly attracted to him and neither is he to her. They recognize
each other as similar animals who complement each other and work
together as a highly effective team. Also, Mercy is the only one in
Luthor's entire company who can get away with calling him "Lex".
Bio (Cartoon Network): Mercy Graves was a thief before Lex Luthor
hired her to be his bodyguard and driver. When Mercy tried to rip Luthor
off, he was so impressed with her nervy daring that he offered her
steady employment in his "legitimate" enterprise. Mercy is an excellent
hand-to-hand combatant, and is proficient with many handheld and
throwing weapons. She is a formidable criminal and offers an
indispensable service to Luthor, who equally values Mercy's loyalty and
talents. Luthor and Mercy are not romantically involved, but they share
an understanding that only the oldest of couples can appreciate.
