"Just because you look scary... doesn't mean you are scary."
—Mona Wu[src]

Mona Wu[1] is a former delivery girl working in the Washington, D.C. area who frequently brought food for Gary Green at the Time Bureau.[2] She served as the Bureau's official Assistant Coordinator of Creature Upkeep[3] until being fired. After being scratched by Konane, Mona became a Kaupe and developed a split personality, nicknamed Wolfie by Charlie,[4] and decided to join the Legends.[5] Mona is also the ex-lover of the late Konane and a good friend of Nora Darhk, Ava Sharpe, Gary Green, and Mick Rory.

After Mick got tired of writing and decided to return to thieving, Mona took over the pen name Rebecca Silver.[6] She was later hired by Mick and Kayla as an occasional babysitter for their necrian children.[7]


Original multiverse

Early life

Mona Wu was born to Zhao Wu and Lien Wu.[1]

Delivery girl

As a delivery girl, Mona discovered that Gary Green and Nate Heywood were working for the Time Bureau but they lied and said it was in charge of time zones. The next day she delivered food to them and tried to suggest horizontal time zones to Gary who loved the idea but was forced to wipe her memory of the situation.[2]

After helping Nate and Gary calm down Baba Yaga, a chupacabra, and a Kaupe by feeding them, she was designated as the Bureau's official magical creature handler.[8]

Working for the Time Bureau

After getting permission from her new boss to enter the prisons and peacefully interact with the fugitives,[9] Mona entered the cage of the Kaupe whom she had helped the boys sedate and whom she had recently developed feelings for. During her scheduled visits, she began to bond with the Kaupe, telling him stories about her day, and she was shocked at how good of a listener he was. After receiving a pep talk from Nate (who was actually trying to set her up with Gary), she decided to confess her feelings to the Kaupe. To Mona's surprise, he introduced himself as Konane, whose name she translated and complimented. Konane stepped forward, seeming to like her back, but he suddenly caught the smell of pursuers. He pushed Mona out of the cell and was attacked by two strange men in black suits.

Mona hid behind a desk and watched as he was tasered and chained up. Konane quickly gestured for her to stay down before being dragged into a parking garage. Mona followed them and confronted them as they were loading Konane into the back of a truck. She moved towards Konane, telling the men that it was her job to care for magical beings, but she was violently pushed back. Konane, angry at them for trying to hurt Mona, escaped from his chains and bit into one of the men. Mona begged Konane not to hurt the men, but he went on a rampage, attacking them and accidentally slashing Mona in the chest before escaping at her advice.

As Mona was slowly suffering from her injury, John Constantine went back in time and broke up with his ex-boyfriend Desmond, saving the latter's life but having catastrophic effects on the timeline, which manifested as a time wave and hit the Time Bureau. A blinding flash of light from the explosion struck Mona, leaving her frozen in midair as the new timeline settled in.[3]

The timeline destroyed

Charlie and John escape the Custodians of the Chronology with Ava and Mona.

With brief assistance from Mona's alternate self, Constantine was able to restore Desmond's love for him, setting the timeline back to its proper course.[10] However, due to the return of her chest wound by Konane, Mona was sent to a hospital.[1]

Joining the Legends

Becoming Wolfie

While in the hospital, Gary arrived to fire her and attempted to erase her memories. However, Mona was able to overpower him and steal his memory flasher and uses it against him so that he forgets all about the situation. After she escaped, Mona noticed Konane hiding out by the dumpsters. Hearing someone coming she helped him escape by sending him to a random point in time with a time courier and smashing it after sending him through the portal it opened. After being taken into custody by the Legends, they are informed that Konane has caused an anachronism in 1961 Mexico City.

Mona joins the Legends on their mission and manages to reunite with Konane's until Sara subdued and imprisoned him on the Waverider. After the Legends helped Konane overpower the group of Time Bureau agents that Ava sent to retrieve Konane, Mona and Konane were able to escape again. Just as Mona was about to send him back to Hawaii where he belonged, a Time Bureau agent fatally shot Konane. Mona's rage over Konane's murder caused her to turn into a Kaupe-like creature and she killed the agent, after which she turned back to normal. Mick Rory came upon Mona with her clothes torn, mourning over Konane's corpse.[1]

The Legends on a road trip.

Mona and the Legends traveled to 1973 to kidnap Richard Nixon, who was telling all the truths of the Government. To escape Hank Heywood and Nate Heywood, Mona, Sara Lance, Mick, Ray Palmer, and John Constantine took a road trip. During the journey, the entire team shared their secrets due to an Agent of Ma'at. Mona was enraged at Sara for criticizing her for not controlling her Kaupe form. Mona went to a bar where she made a lot of chaos like Kaupe until she was calmed down by Sara, who apologized. Mona and the Legends were caught by Hank, but thanks to Nate, they managed to become allies of the Bureau again. Mona and Sara began to befriend each other.[5]

The Legends traveled to 1802 in Bath, and Mona was excited that she might meet her favorite book author, Jane Austen. The Legends managed to capture Sunjay, a being that made everyone feel their most sexual desires. Mona became enraged with Jane due to her leaving the romance, so she turned into Wolfie to attack her, but Sara managed to calm her down.

During the night on the Waverider, Mona had a wet dream with Konane. Mona was still furious with Jane and at night attacked her at her house, but she managed to calm down. Mona spoke to Jane to inspire her to believe in love again. She prevented Zari Tomaz and Sunjay from getting married. Mona believed in love again and was happy that Jane was becoming an author.[4] Mona, Charlie, and Mick helped Zari finally ask Nate to go on a romantic date.[11]


Book club.

Mona was at the book club with her newest member, Sara, to be with Nora until she recovers.[12] Mona was happy because Nora could work in the bureau and Mona discovered that Gary had become the new boss, so with Nora's help, Mona investigated to find out what was happening. Upon releasing Ava from Gary's control, Mona discovered that Gary hypnotized everyone with his nipple. Mona turned into Wolfie to eat the hypnotic nipple. Mona was captured by Neron, Tabitha, and Gary.[13]

Mona was tortured by Neron and had to become a Wolfie to the world, which caused everyone to fear and install the Neron's app. While held captive, Mona was happy that Nora came to rescue her, but Nora had been made Gary's new Fairy Godmother. Mona watched as the cells were opened, and the duo was going to escape, but Nora went to the Waverider due to a wish from Gary.[14]

The Legends, the Magical Fugitives, and the visitors sing Sweet Baby James to revive Nate.

Mona managed to escape after Charlie sacrificed herself, being captured by Neron. The Legends managed to rescue Charlie. Mona and Charlie convinced the Magical Fugitives to reform to prove they are not bad. Mona had faith in magical creatures. The Legends faced Neron, but were no match for him until Nate sacrificed himself for Constantine to kill Neron by freeing him from Ray's body. Mona, the Legends, the Magical Fugitives, and the Heyworld visitors sang Sweet Baby James together to revive Nate. After unknowingly changing the timeline, Mona and the Legends withdrew from Heyworld to go on new adventures.[15]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Mona was present on Earth-1 when it was hit by a wave of antimatter, killing her.[16] She was restored a month later, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.[17]

New multiverse

The new "Rebecca Silver"

Legends team meeting.

Mona was present on the Waverider during the filming of the documentary Meet the Legends and helped defeat Grigori Rasputin. After the Legends defeated Rasputin, she was approached by Mick Rory, who told her that he was tired of writing and asked her to become the new "Rebecca Silver". Mona agreed that his writing had become less interesting and decided that she was ready to return to the present, fall in love, and come up with new ideas to revive "Rebecca Silver's" success. After hugging her friend goodbye, she began moving out of the Waverider.[6]

Mona at Nora's bachelorette party.

Mona later returned to the Waverider for a quick visit and to inform Mick that his book was being disrespected by a "troll", something Mick already knew. During her visit, Mona attended a book club meeting with the other female members of the Legends, which ultimately became Nora Darhk's bachelorette party. Before leaving the Waverider once again, Mona helped the Legends put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet and encouraged Mick to talk to his daughter.[18]


"There are no ghosts on Ultimate Buds!"

Mona had no idea that reality had been rewritten and that she was in "Loomworld". She worked at the Historical Sanitation Department and her job was to rewrite history by changing books that had records of revolution or rebellion. At quitting time, Mona was discussing this with a co-worker, Geoffrey Burch, when Atropos appeared on the big screen; she told him that his time was over and she cut his thread. Mona merely praised the Fates and went home.

At home, Mona made herself a bowl of mush and decided to watch television. As she watched Ultimate Buds, she exclaimed, because she saw what she believed to be a ghost and there were no ghosts on the show. Her interest was piqued when one of the characters said her whole name on the show; she watched the show until it crossed over into Highcastle Abbey. Mona then went and got the "crazy guy" because he always said that the world was wrong and she continued to watch Highcastle Abbey with him. The two of them then decided to visit Clotho Productions to see who was writing the crossover.

Pulling a hand cart with crates of mush, Mona and Gary told the security guard that they had a delivery; Mona had to threaten his life before he would allow her to pass. Inside, Mona found the machines that were writing the script. Ultimately, Mona, as a writer, felt she could write the shows better and started typing; this brought the anger of Charlie who screamed so powerfully that it was a concussive blast. Charlie explained why the Legends were trapped on TV, but Mona wondered if the Legends started a rebellion on television, was Charlie willing to kill them herself. Mona watched as the deity canceled the shows and freed the Legends from fiction.[19]

Mona and Gary in Loomworld.

The freed Legends met with Mona and Gary as they sought the Waverider; they went with a retrieval team to the garbage disposal plant after hiding the fugitives in a garbage truck. Zari, Ava Sharpe, and Nate Heywood boarded the time ship and suddenly departed. Mona did not see them again until they returned to the garbage dump four months later. In those four months, Mona met Lita and reunited with Mick Rory. Mona was reunited with the team, but only temporarily, as she decided to remain a writer after the Legends stopped the propaganda spread by Lachesis and her Fatewatch.[20]


While Mick Rory and Kayla were dating, Mona was hired to take care of their necrian children, whom she loved dearly. Mona told her old friends where Mick and Kayla were. She told them bedtime stories until Kamaya, Kayla's mother, kidnapped her and the babies, causing the former members of the Legends to begin a journey to save them. On Necria, Mona and the babies were found and saved by their friends, who returned them to Earth safe and sound.[7]


Mona in her civilian persona.

Mona is childish and immature, prone to attempting to kill others when she's angry, as she did with Jane Austen, who she had blamed for making her a fool according to Jane and herself, who thought love would conquer all obstacles. She is excitable, especially due to love; she showed this when she tried to hook Ray and Nora together and later Nate, and Zari.[4] She is also somewhat nosy, as seen when she tried reading Zari's texts.[11]

Despite her sometimes annoying qualities, though, Mona is kind and loving at heart. Her gentleness with magical fugitives briefly landed her a job at the Time Bureau,[8] and she continued to show them kindness after being fired as they were being stowed away on the Waverider.[15] She has shown to care about her team, stepping out of her comfort zone and singing to rescue her friends from the love dust of Kamadeva.[4] Mona also read to Nora Darhk while the latter was in a coma,[12] and Nora later returned the favor by attempting to save Mona from Neron.[14]

Mona as Wolfie.

"Watch yourself, love. She's not in her right mind."
"Oh, that's the problem. She is."
John Constantine and Sara Lance[src]
Initially, Mona seemed exceedingly aggressive and not entirely in control of her emotions or actions whilst in her wolf form, violently murdering a man for killing Konane.[1] This was likely due to her transformation being triggered by extreme duress. Wolfie has been revealed as a split personality with a mind of her own.[13] However, it has also been revealed that Mona is almost completely aware of her actions as Wolfie, although she is made much more feral in nature. She is capable of speaking in coherent English and understanding it perfectly. When she attacked Sara Lance and John Constantine, Mona was completely aware that they were her allies, having attacked them due to her frustrations with them, which had been heightened while in her Kaupe form.[5]

DC's Legends of Tomorrow




  • It was implied that Mona is claustrophobic.[5]
  • Mona is a vegetarian.[4] However, as Wolfie, she has a preference for meat.
  • Mona's development of powers somewhat mirrors that of Caitlin Snow, as in both cases they developed a split personality that could "take control", resulting in a physical change and access to powers that the original person did not have.

Behind the scenes

  • Mona's name is likely a reference to Ramona Young, the actress who portrays her.
  • Mona was originally named Alaska Yu.[21]
  • Mona is the third completely original character on DC's Legends of Tomorrow​​​​ after Ava Sharpe and Gary Green, having no known counterpart in or relation to any DC comic.
