Little is known about Diamondback's life before the Latverian siege on New York. It can be assumed to be similar to her mainstream counterpart.
Diamondback participated in Lucia von Bardas's real attack upon New York along with the Wizard, Scorcher, and Shocker. She was later forcibly inducted into Thunderbolts and taken over by the mind-control nanites. She attacked the heroes at the Prison 42 portal alongside Scorcher, the Lizard, Electro, the Grey Gargoyle, Whirlwind and Moonstone at the portal that leads out of the Negative Zone prison.
Powers and Abilities
Diamondback is an Olympic-level athlete who excels in gymnastics, an accomplished hand-to-hand combatant, and an expert thrower of knives and other sharp objects.
Equipment: None known.
Transportation: None known.
Weapons: Diamondback wields an undisclosed number of 4-inch long elongated diamond-shaped throwing spikes. She refers to these weapons as "diamonds," even though they are not made of actual diamond (which would be far too expensive for use). Stored in her boots, gloves, earrings and elsewhere on her costume, these diamonds are needle-sharp and sometimes filled with various substances. Known diamonds in her arsenal have contained a lethal fast-acting snake venom-derived poison, an impact-detonated explosive with the concussive force of 10 pounds of TNT, a highly corrosive concentrated hydrochloric acid, tear gas, and a fast-acting sleep-inducing narcotic. At least one set of these diamonds were designed by the Tinkerer.
