A Deviant who frequently posed as the Mesopotamian underworld goddess Ereshkigal, she was an extra-dimensional explorer like her mother and her mother before her. During her travels, she became aware of the hierarchy of the multiverse and developed an inferiority complex over being bound by the rules set down by the abstract beings like Eternity and Living Tribunal. She began a lifelong search for sources of power that would help her break free from these restrictions.[5]

When the Celestials' Fourth Host came to Earth, Ereshkigal posed as a human named Lisa and boarded a flight bound to pass by their temple in the Andes. As expected, her plane was captured by Gammenon the Gatherer and brought inside the Celestial's dome. revealing herself, Ereshkigal got into conflict with several factions, including a secret agent from S.H.I.E.L.D., Ajak the Eternal, and Thor.[6]

Sometime later, Ereshkigal posed as the woman H.D. Steckley, taking advantage of the identity after it was abandoned by Moondragon. She worked in Quasar's private firm to monitor his Quantum Bands, but soon realized the greater power was connected to his girlfriend and secretary Kayla Ballantine, and the Star Brand she unknowingly possessed. While looking for an opportunity to steal Kayla's power, "Holly" and Kayla got into numerous misadventures on alien worlds.[7] When Kayla had finally had enough extraterrestrial nonsense, Holly took advantage of her weakness and pressed Kayla to pass the Star Brand to her.[8]

Now in possession of a power from beyond the Multiverse, Ereshkigal planned to impose her will on all of reality by tilting the axis of power. She entered the Nexus of All Realities in the Everglades and confronted the Living Tribunal, Master Order, and Lord Chaos with her plans. Quasar and the Silver Surfer found their way into the Nexus as well, and so Ereshkigal and the Tribunal agreed to use pawns to decide the Multiverse's fate. Quasar and the Surfer were each imprinted with the idea that they must fight to the death to preserve the Multiverse. Ultimately, however, Quasar recognized that he was actually Ereshkigal's champion and threw the fight. Ereshkigal apparently self-imploded rather than abide by the bargain and turn the Star Brand over to the Living Tribunal.[5]
