Origin Story is a documentary by comedian and podcast host Kulap Vilaysack of Earwolf's "Who Charted?" It's an international road trip from Los Angeles to Minnesota to Laos, where Kulap's story began. It's a deeply personal but universal story about family secrets, alienation and personal responsibility.



Kulap Vilaysack, AKA Katharsis, is a DC Comics villain-turned-vigilante who first appeared in 2012's Batgirl #10 as a part of the Knightfall arc. In 2013, Katharsis joined a team of marginalized justice seekers in The Movement. She's the hothead of the group, relying on her strong sword skills and homemade mechanical wings to keep her edge.

Kulap IRL was thrilled when Author Gail Simone created this alter ego based in part on her backstory. Katharsis is the first Lao-American superhero, an ex-police officer who survived a stint in the Arkham Asylum before joining Knightfall and moving on to Coral City.
