okay just redid all that glitters and am finding ghost veil a very cool character. Was wondering if there was some book that might allow me to read more on her since there's not much online?

from what I've been told, Ghost Veil is a Cryptic Original, there are no books about her since she didn't exist before Champions Online.

Ghost Veil is indeed a Cryptic Studios creation. Many such have been incorporated into the latest Champions PnP game source books, but not her. There's also nothing about her in any of the Hero Games books dealing with the past history of the setting.
The range of Ghost Veil's activity is very limited in the game to date. I get the impression she's not nearly as big a deal as she claims to be. ;)

FWIW the Champions Universe already has an established female supervillain with awesome power of darkness and tremendous destructiveness, Eclipsar. A mysterious demon or goddess apparently having some connection to the pre-Columbian cultures of the Andes Mountains region of South America, e.g. the Incas and Moche, she was somehow trapped in a disk of obsidian uncovered by an archaeologist in the year 2000, whose body she promptly possessed. Eclipsar's goal is to destroy the Sun, either by gaining enough power to snuff it out directly, or by eliminating what she believes to be its spiritual sustenance, the lives of every human being on Earth.
In her first appearance in 2000, Eclipsar blotted out the light of the Sun over most of the South American continent, then began slaughtering people by the thousands. It took the combined forces of UNTIL, the famous American superhero team the Justice Squadron, and La Brigada de Victoria, the premier hero team of South America, to defeat her. Imprisoned by combined technological and mystical means in UNTIL's super-prison, "the Guardhouse," Eclipsar escaped in 2004. She hasn't been seen since, but it's just a matter of time until her return. And who knows what she's been planning over the intervening years?
