At some point, Scandal met and fell in love with Knockout, one of the New Gods of Apokolips after she had escaped. They both moved into a penthouse apartment and began working for Vandal Savage, Scandals father.
Hell to Pay
Scandal and Knockout planned to meet Steel Maxum, the previous Doctor Fate, in a bar. Unbeknownst to him, Scandal Savage and Knockout planned to use Steel to obtain the Get Out of Hell Free card from the Tower of Fate. Having taken an interest in Knockout, Steel blindly takes them to the Tower, expecting to be rewarded. He and Knockout share a romantic moment, but Maxum becomes suspicious of Scandal's apparent disappearance. After finding Savage, Steel races to take his helmet, but is intercepted by Knockout. The three enter a fight, and Maxum is rendered unconscious in the process. Scandal and Knockout escape with the card.
They later went to kidnap Professor Pyg, who was going to give Two-Face surgery to even out the scarring in his face. They claimed Pyg needed to help their "patient," who turned out to be Scandal Savage's father, Vandal Savage.
Upon finding Scandal and Knockout's apartment, Task Force X acquires the card, but they are intercepted by Vandal Savage and his men. Savage retrieves the card but leaves the wounded Knockout to die despite Scandal's pleas. As Savage escapes, Eobard Thawne places a tracer on his ship. In the aftermath of the events, Scandal can be seen at Knockout's hospital bed as she recovers. Scandal in revenge covertly informs Deadshot of Vandal's location hoping they will kill her father for his actions.
