Knockout is a female comic supervillain that features in DC Comics.
Knockout was a female member of the race of New Gods who was native to the dark world of Apokolips. She grew up on that planet where she was taken in by Granny Goodness and went through training to become part of the Female Furies. During this time, Granny showed extra-attention to Knockout during her Special Powers Training in order for her to earn her strip as a Fury. An attempt was made to break her iron will and she was sent to Inner-Circle Solitary that were cells scraped in the walls of a Fire-Pit. For an unknown length of time, she remained chained there when she witnessed someone appear before her asking her to choose and then disappearing into the flame. Knockout thought this was a fever dream and paid it no mind with her earning Granny's forgiveness leading to her return into the Female Furies ranks. Sometime afterwards, she came to learn that Big Barda had defected from the Furies with this making Knockout think about the element of choice and freedom. She was disciplined again for disobedience and chained up in the Inner-Circle Solitary where she once more beheld a person asking her to choose and she broke from her chains with her falling into the fire. It was then that she was transported to Earth in the lands of Hawaii. (Superboy v3 #25)
