Vera Black is a British psionic cyborg in the DC universe.

The character, created by Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke, first appeared in JLA #100 (August 2004). The story line set up the limited series Justice League Elite which consisted of 12 issues published over 2004 and 2005.

Within the context of the stories, Vera Black is the sister of Manchester Black. As children their parents would often fight and Manchester would take her out to play to avoid them. As his idea of "play" became killing sprees, Vera's perspective twisted. When her brother dies after attempting to destroy Superman, she has her ruined arms, lost in an untold childhood incident, replaced with cybernetic prostheses which can configure into any weapon desires and embarks on a mission to get revenge on Superman as Sister Superior.

This results in her leading the remnants of The Elite and tacitly working with the Justice League. This leads to the League, encouraged by the Flash, asking her to lead the new a team permanently to handle black ops that the League cannot due to what they represent to the public. Starting with Coldcast and Menagerie, she adds Flash, Manitou Raven, Major Disaster, Green Arrow and Kasumi to the team. She also enlists Naif al-Sheikh to keep the team in check and serve as a liaison to the governments of the world.
