Stunner was originally a video store clerk but she managed to get a job working for Carolyn Trainer, a former student of Otto Octavius a.k.a Doctor Octopus. When Octavius used his virtual reality technology to make her powerful and beautiful she immediately fell in love with him. She was first seen using her virtual powers to destroy a bar. While in her Virtual form she tried to resurrect Octavius after a battle with Spidey. As her real body was actually tied down into the virtual reality machine the explosion that followed the resurrection knocked her true form into a coma from which took her years to awake from.
