History

Modern Era

Katya Belyakov (Earth-616) from The Cavalry S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary Vol 1 1 001.png

On a mission to Bahrain Melinda May was forced to kill Katya Belyakov, who was using her mind-control powers. May shot Katya in self defence to avoid being touched, killing her and breaking her control over her thralls. The agents had no memory of their time under Katya's control and presumed that May fought through an army to save them and nicknamed her "the Cavalry". However, traumatized by what she had done, she requested reassignment to a quiet desk job in recent years.[1]

Alternative Realities

Earth-199999

On Earth-199999; During her time as a field agent, in 2008, Melinda May joined a S.H.I.E.L.D. team on a mission to Bahrain for an Index Asset Evaluation and Intake of Eva Belyakov, a woman with super-strength. The mission went south when Eva and a group of gunmen took a girl hostage. The S.H.I.E.L.D. team attempted to contain the situation only for them to all get abducted. With S.H.I.E.L.D. stalled by red tape and with the Bahraini military closing in, May went in alone and discovered that the agents were being mind-controlled. She managed to kill Eva, only to learn that it was her daughter, Katya, who was the one with the mind-control powers. Shot in the leg and unable to run, May chose to shoot Katya in self-defense to avoid being touched, killing her and breaking her control over her thralls. The agents had no memory of their time under Katya's control and presumed that May fought through an army to save them and nicknamed her "the Cavalry". However, traumatized by what she had done, she requested reassignment to a quiet desk job in recent years.[2]
