Brandy was the daughter of Suzanne Selby, an unemployed pregnant worker who was recruited to work on grape harvests in the Shi'ar Galaxy with her boyfriend. Sometime after becoming separated from him, Suzanne was arrested by the Shi'ar border patrol for being a migrant worker, and was sentenced to the Ravenstarr Maximum-Security Prison Galaxy.
As she was going into labor while being transported into Ravenstarr, Suzanne was imbued with the powers of the Starbrand, sending her on a path of destruction while she tried to control her new destructive abilities. This incident ended with the Avengers assisting the delivery of Suzanne's baby. Suzanne died in childbirth, and the Starbrand was transferred to her baby girl. The Avengers returned with the child to Earth in order to help her control her new power, and dubbed her "Brandy".
One day, Brandy found herself in an alternate reality and floating in the depths of space. She was eventually found by that reality's Rocket Raccoon and Groot, who brought her aboard their ship, the Mothership Guardian, much to Rocket's annoyance. He eventually relented, and, together, they raised Brandy. As she grew up, she learned how to use her powers and, when Rocket was hired to kill Doctor Spectrum and was losing the fight, Brandy was able to pass on her Star Brand to aid Rocket. It still wasn't enough, however, and Spectrum killed him. The Star Brand returned to Brandy, and she was left brokenhearted by Rocket's death.
She then wanted to go to Earth to restore reality to its proper state and kill Spectrum, something that Groot tried to talk her out of. Suddenly, a Wakandan spaceship appeared looking for Brandy. Once on Earth, Brandy joined the Avengers. She and Avengers later confronted the Squadron Supreme when they tracked the Avengers to the hidden nation of Wakanda.
