    Cindy Burman (Earth-2: Post-Crisis)

    You think that everything is black and white. Good and bad, and you're all good. Well, guess what? There's darkness in everyone, even you, new girl. I just choose to embrace mine while you avoid yours, and that is what makes me a survivor.
    — Cindy Burman to Courtney Whitmore[src]

    Cynthia "Cindy" Burman is a popular and feared student at Blue Valley High School. She is the former captain of the cheerleading squad and the daughter of the late Dragon King. After rebelling against her father, she uses the name of Shiv and fought against the newly formed Justice Society of America.

    Powers[edit | hide]

    • Enhanced Physiology: Since her childhood, Burman was experimented on by her father Shiro Ito, the Dragon King. Cindy's physiology was severely altered to match her father's dream of her to become the Dragon Queen, turning her into one of the most dangerous Metahumans.[4]

The blades are often used by Burman in close combat which she could use to disarm her opponents. Despite the sharpness of the blade, they do not induce permanent injuries in a Burman due to her regenerative healing factor.[2]
      • Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite being blasted by the Cosmic Staff, Burman was able to quickly heal from the burns in seconds and return to her peak physical performance.[2] Burman was also shown to be able to heal from broken bones and muscle damage after falling several stories.[14]
      • Superhuman Agility: Burman possesses an exceptional skill of agility, allowing her to easily leap over obstacles and launch herself at her enemies through acrobatic techniques.
      • Superhuman Strength: Burman was shown to have a tremendous strength that is capable of lifting and sending an average human flying midair.

    • Peak of Human Physical Condition: Aside from her enhanced physiology, Burman is at the peak of human physical condition and performs better than highly trained individuals.[2]
      • Hand-to-Hand Combat: Trained by her father at a young age, Burman is familiar with different form of martial arts and capable of defending herself from dangerous opponents.[2]
        • Staff Fighting: Burman used a staff against Courtney Whitmore, who uses the Cosmic Staff as her weapon of choice.[2]
        • Knife Fighting: As her body is implanted with retractable blades, Burman is a master in fighting with the sharp blades and used the advantage for herself.[2]

    Current Equipment[edit | hide]

    • Shiv Suit: As Shiv, Burman wears a green and red protective suit created by her late father. She initially wore it prematurely against Stargirl, only to be scolded afterward and later continued to wear the suit.[2]

    Former Equipment[edit | hide]

    • Shiv Staff: Burman stole the staff from her father and fought against Whitmore's Cosmic Staff.[2]
    • Black Diamond: Burman acquired the Black Diamond from William Zarick's storage facility and attempted to control Eclipso, who was imprisoned within.[16] Unfortunately, Eclipso was secretly planning for a way to escape and was able to utilize the battle between the Justice Society of America and Injustice Unlimited for her liberation.
