> > I'm fiddling with a profile on Leila Davis, the Beetle from the old THUNDERBOLTS series, and it's bringing back fond memories of this character. Boy, did she have a hate-on for Abner Jenkins, the original Beetle. I think it's kind of nice to have gotten a story like hers. The wife of a low-rent (but cool) super-villain (the Ringer) wanting revenge for the murder of her husband, for the humiliation he suffered at the hands of a fellow villain. Redemption abounded when she showed up in T-BOLTS, where I was first exposed to her. She was pretty cool. A chick in giant battle armor. And then she was so horrendously killed off by Gravition, crushed to death like a beer can. Poor girl. Anyone else appreciate her?
> When in the T-bolts run did she show up?

She showed up in the Beetle's huge armor around T-BOLTS #49 and lasted until #56. She was also in DEADLY FOES OF SPIDER-MAN and LETHAL FOES OF SPIDER-MAN, where she attempted to murder the original Beetle several times.
