- Your heart's racing. Good. That helps. I can feel it. Inside you. I know. Know what you're afraid of. You're an arachnophobe. Spiders. You're deathly afraid of spiders.
Feeling she had nothing left to live for, she jumped from the Golden Gate 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.
She eventually helped the Mighty Avengers by defeating their foe Ultimo on a single blast, while they were seemingly unable to scratch it, and then asking them how to join them and leading to her involvement with the Initiative.
Arriving at Camp Hammond, at Stamford, Connecticut, she was still very enthusiast, promising her friends autographs of Iron Man. There she was greeted "welcome" by Yellowjacket, Gauntlet and She-Hulk.
During her first training exercise with the Initiative, she successfully demonstrated her powers against combat-bots during a capture the flag exercise. She was then asked to stay on stage to allow Trauma to access his powers (based on the fear of others), but when fellow trainee Trauma became a giant spider, the thing she feared the most, Armory panicked, firing wildly, and killed MVP.
She had a meeting with Dr. Burke at the Burke Wellness Center]], where she was monitored by Dr. Burke, who made sure she kept her Initiative time a secret, testing her by asking her the reason of the scars of her arm (consequences of the Tactigon removal), without Violet was then readmitted and kept under surveillance. Dr. Burke then contacted Gyrich to confirm him that Violet would kept the story secret.
