History

Alison Double is a mutant telepath and was a member of S.T.R.I.K.E.'s Psi Division, along with Betsy Braddock, Tom Lennox, Kevin Mulhearn, Vicki Reppion, and Avril Davis. When the crimelord Vixen secretly took over S.T.R.I.K.E., she sent her assassin Slaymaster after the psi division in order to silence them. Slaymaster killed Mulhearn while he was performing on stage while Double was psychically linked to him. His death traumatized her greatly.

Slaymaster hunted the survivors down and killed Reppion and Davis before Captain Britain was able to defeat him. The psi-division's survivors Double, Braddock, and Lennox moved into Braddock Manor for a time.[2]

When the Prime Minister James Jaspers was putting superhumans in internment camps, the group was forced to go into hiding. Double developed a fever and had to be cared for by her friends. Soon after Jaspers' agents eventually found them, killed Lennox and captured Double and Braddock, putting them in one of the camps for superhumans and mutants. Inside the camp, the two women befriended Victoria Bentley, a magically gifted former ally of Doctor Strange and the Black Knight. After Jaspers' death, Double and Braddock spent several months recovering from their ordeal in Bentley's care.

Sometime later, when Betsy Braddock temporarily took up the mantle of Captain Britain, she was brutally beaten and blinded by Slaymaster. Braddock went to Double's Swiss chateau to recuperate and adjust to life without her sight.[3] It was from Switzerland that Braddock was abducted by the other-dimensional dictator Mojo.[4]

Alison died in an automobile accident sometime later, but she, along three other Psi Division members Tom, Vicki, and Kevin, were brought back to life by The Five on Krakoa on the orders of Pete Wisdom to reform S.T.R.I.K.E. and rescue Excalibur, trapped in Otherworld.[1]
