As an agent of SHIELD, the Contessa participated in an elaborate shell game regarding the reconstituted Carnage symbiote. The U.S. government was using the symbiote for potential cancer research or weaponization. S.H.I.E.L.D. and President Bridge arranged to transport the symbiote through New York City while Val and a disguised S.H.I.E.L.D. team "hijacked" the cargo, thus demonstrating the inherent danger of the symbiote's release. When the symbiote actually WAS released following a misunderstanding with Spider-Girl, however, SHIELD had to track it down before any serious injuries took place.[1]
