Victoria "Vicki" Vale was a local Gotham-based child model who was devastated when a dog in a photo shoot was killed by a camera truck and was simply replaced by a look-alike. She swore that the camera would never again lie because of her and began to learn all she could about photography. Becoming independent, she also began turning down ethically questionable jobs despite pressure from her parents to the contrary. After graduating from Gotham High School, Vale studied photography and journalism at Vassar College before beginning her professional career as a photojournalist.

Working her way up the corporate ladder, when Vale was editor at Vue Magazine she helped form a Committee of Concerned Citizens Against the Batman. In a short span of time, Vale left Vue and took a series of positions as a photojournalist at Gotham View, Gotham Daily News, and Gothamite Magazine before settling a permanent position at the Gotham Gazette.
She later became a co-host of The Scene, a woman's television talk show with Lia Briggs, Tawny Young and Linda Park. She also did on-air reporting for Night News Live before an unknown incident saw her leaving television and returning to work at the Gotham Gazette.
