| > > 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 was a member of the Redeemers...she and most of the rest of the team were slaughtered by Graviton. Smuggler came back from the dead later.
I loved her in Deadly Foes of Spider-Man. I tend to dig the villains where the villain comes about because another villain ruined his or her life.
