Doctor Midas was an opportunist who converted his pregnant wife into a "chemical hot-house of information-rich toxins", accelerating her development in-utero. He raised his daughter Oubliette Midas into a perfect environment with an oxygen-rich atmosphere in order to enhance her brain growth and her longevity, she was taught by Midas to kill every kind of being.
Over the years, Oubliette was forced to wear a mask, as her father had told her she was scarred and disfigured (which wasn't true, except for a small scar on the left cheek).
Meeting Marvel Boy
At some time, the Midas Foundation intercepted a Kree Space-ship crew. All were killed except for Noh-Varr, who was able to escape. Oubliette was sent to capture or kill him, but instead teamed-up with him against her father. Soon, she befriended him and he made her discover that she wasn't disfigured after all.
The duo battled a Mindless One, one of Doctor Midas' weapons, and defeated it, before turning it against Midas, who was newly further mutated into the Cosmic Man. He was seemingly killed, but in reality was sent to the Subwhere, a dimension full of Mindless Ones.
