Nia Weathers was a fierce advocate for women’s and civil rights in the 60’s. She used her fiery passion to get her way against the still harsh treatment she received, not only because she was a woman, but also because she was African-American. When she was bludgeoned to the brink of death by an angry group of white police officers, she decided that words were not enough. Nia traveled to a remote location in China, where she was trained by an enigmatic marksman on how to hit any target with the bow and arrow. When she returned to America 15 years later, she was an almost impossible aim, and with her new-found talent she began to fight prejudice and sexism as the hero Deadeye. She joined the HeroCorps in 1971 and stayed on until 1995, when she retired from heroing. Her son is Liberator of the New Americans, the product of a short-lived relationship between Deadeye and fellow HeroCorps member Black Bat.
