Raised in a foster home infested with spiders, Violet's childhood home left her emotionally scarred. Feeling she had nothing left to live for, she jumped from a bridge, feeling herself become emotionally empty as she plummeted to the water below. This emptiness caused the alien weapon known as the Tactigon, an immensely powerful alien weapon that had fallen to earth at some point, to rise to the surface of the water it was buried in and latch itself to Violet. Violet was shocked to see the weapon attach itself, then save her life. Feeling she now had a reason to live, she set out to fight crime, defeating the Brothers Grimm, Flying Tiger, Needle, and eventually helping the Mighty Avengers defeat Ultimo, leading to her involvement with the Initiative.

During first training exercise with the Initiative, she defeated a large robot, but when fellow trainee Trauma became a giant spider, the thing she feared the most, Armory panicked, firing wildly, and killing MVP. Drummed out of the program, the Tactigon was surgically removed and she was sent home, to San Francisco. There, she was placed in a psychological hospital where she's monitored by "Dr. Burke", who makes sure she keeps the reason she was drummed out of the Initiative a secret, though officially, it's because she's a "danger to herself."

Powers and AbilitiesEdit
