Gypsy has the ability to blend into any background, much as a chameleon adapts to the colors of a particular location to remain hidden. How she developed these powers remains unknown at this writing, but they appear to be natural-born. The chameleon-shadings alter rapidly and so far there has been no locale she has not been able to blend with. If she moves from one background to another too quickly, the blending camouflage gives her a truly bizarre appearance.

The Justice League of America
When the reformed Justice League of America relocated to Detroit, they encountered several youths with super-powers, one of whom was a 15-year-old street urchin known only as Gypsy.
At first, Gypsy kept her distance from the League but found herself curious about her new neighbors. Using her apparently naturally power to blend in with any background, the young girl breached the security of the JLA's new headquarters, only to be caught by the Martian Manhunter. Gypsy quickly freed herself and escaped, but she kept returning to the HQ and shadowing the various members.
It wasn't until weeks after the League settled in Detroit that Gypsy took an active part in a case, helping them defeat the menace of the Cadre. Shortly thereafter, Gypsy chose to remain with the group and became their newest member.
Since she is shy and withdrawn, little is known about Gypsy's past, although fellow Detroit native Vibe has said that Gypsy was living on the streets for quite some time and was known mostly for stealing food and clothing to stay alive. As she is a habitual liar, Gypsy's tales are usually discounted.
At present, the League knows little of Gypsy's past and she has yet to feel comfortable enough to share the information. It has been theorized that she is not a genuine Gypsy and is playing the role of a street urchin because it suits her present needs.
