Along with Letha, Melissa Gold (then known as Screaming Mimi), and Titania, Marian Pouncy aka Poundcakes was one of the four original Grapplers, an all-female wrestling team who became notorious for their ringside antics and their outrageous personalities. However, the women never made the kind of money their male counterparts did. Titania, the leader of the team, was approached by an executive in charge of covert operations for the Roxxon Oil company and offered them the chance to make some serious money by infiltrating and destroying the government energy research facility Project Pegasus in partnership with Thundra. Poundcakes was outfitted with boots that created seismic vibrations when she stamped her feet. They failed in their mission, however, being apprehended by the Thing, and were jailed. When they were paroled, they found that the women's wrestling business had floundered without them, and they were forced to become full-time criminals to support themselves.
DeVito and the other Grapplers clashed with the mutant superhero Dazzler when she was imprisoned with them in the female wing of the Ryker's Island prison for super-powered felons. Dazzler, however, managed to defeat the four wrestlers. Poundcakes also fought Captain America and Giant-Man at other points.
When the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation for superhumanly strong wrestlers was founded, the Grapplers' manager Auntie Freeze decided it should have a female division, and submitted the original Grapplers as well as her newer recruits for the Power Broker's strength augmentation treatment.
Poundcakes was later apprehended by the Asp, Black Mamba, and Anaconda when she and the villain Jackhammer were disrupting a date between their friend Diamondback and Captain America with an argument over advances Jackhammer made toward her. Poundcakes said Jackhammer wasn't her type, hinting that she could possibly be a lesbian.
Poundcakes was granted superhuman powers by the Power Broker, giving her superhuman strength and durability.
Poundcakes is an experienced wrestler and streetfighter.
Poundcakes has superhuman strength, and is able to lift around 25 tons.
The Roxxon Oil company outfitted Poundcakes with boots capable of producing powerful seismic vibrations when she stamps on the ground.
