|Debut||Stalker #1 (June 1975)|
|Created by||Paul Levitz, Steve Ditko|
D'Grth is a mega-demon who wants to spread his powers across all dimensions. Years ago the boy who would become known as Stalker made a deal with him for skills and gave up his soul to him. Now Stalker wants a soul and, together with his oracle, makes a deal to trade the souls of Diana, Beowulf and Claw the Unconquered, plus the Soul or Stone Heart of Eternity for a soul of his own: Diana's.
When Diana steals the Soul of Eternity from Stalker, the deal is called off and the fight becomes one between her and D'Grth on Earth. D'Grth causes grievous burns on Diana, but she keeps fighting. She uses her lasso as a bull whip to slice through D'Grth's wrist, and then summons her Invisible Jet to gut him. Eventually she whittles him down to just his head, which offers her her every wish if she will spare him.
Stalker gives Diana back her soul and under the auspices of the oracle, the four swords people carry out the ceremonial murder that will take care of D'Grth forever.
