DEVI (Virgin Comics) (MAY 2007 – ???)
Devi is a celestial warrior goddess created by the gods to fight the renegade god Bala in the second century of man. When Bala rose again to threaten the universe, Devi was reborn within the body of a young woman named Tara Mehta.
The Devi entity had emerged within a warrior-woman of the Durapasya (human warriors of light) clan. She had led the armies of the gods and men on an all-out assault on Bala’s Fortress.
After defeating Bala through hand-to-hand combat, which led to the fallen god being blinded, captured, and imprisoned by Bodha, the supreme Lord of creation inside Jwala, the fortress of fire and stone (hidden deep within the earth) she had created a source to hold the prayers of humanity and channel them to Aakashik, the story’s representation of heaven, thus replenishing the powers of the other pure gods.
DEVI is the story of a young woman who has the spirit of a warrior goddess fused with her own soul. My run starts with DEVI #11 onwards.
