Shondra Kinsolving

Search for 'Shondra Kinsolving' on Amazon

Shondra Kinsolving was a physiotherapist working in Gotham City when she was hired to treat Jack Drake after injuries sustained in Haiti. Later, an emotionally and physically exhausted Bruce Wayne sought out Kinsolving for therapy. Wayne had been driven to this unusual point by Bane, who had systematically broken Gotham's worst criminals out of both Blackgate Penitentiary and Arkham Asylum.

After Bane confronted the weakened Batman and broke his back, it was natural for Kinsolving to be brought in; Alfred Pennyworth explained that the wealthy playboy had suffered an accident with his Porsche. As they worked together, Wayne fell in love with his doctor.

During their time together, she appeared to be troubled, and it was soon after their romance began that the truth began to seep out. She had a half brother, Benedict Asplin, who shared with her a psychic link. Apparently, he knew they had great powers; through their genetic link, the powers would work when they were in proximity to each other.
He had arrived to awaken his half sister's full psionic abilities and use her in his quest for power. The criminal known as Mister Asp kidnapped her and brought her south, where she was forced to telepathically kill the inhabitants of an island village. Wayne outfitted himself with leg braces and a disguise, creating the persona of Sir Hemmingford Gray, and tracked the two. When Asplin realized he was being hunted he tried to kill Batman with psionics, but the attempt failed. Curious, he kidnapped Gray to study him, bringing the man to Santa Prisca. It was learned that because Asplin had tried to kill Gray, not Wayne, the attack had failed.

Bruce Wayne managed to defeat Asplin, but the ordeal was too much for Kinsolving, whose mind shut down, reducing her personality to that of a child. She did manage to use her abilities one final time, totally healing Wayne's back, putting him back on the path to resuming his career as Batman. Wayne subsequently had her placed with a foster family that could care for her until her mind healed itself.

When Wayne suffered massive head trauma some years later, Barbara Gordon suggested Kinsolving be summoned to heal her former lover. Alfred indicated that she had recovered and was unavailable.
