Carina was sent by her father the Collector to seduce and eventually betray Korvac. However, as the weeks passed, she began to fall in love with him. When the Avengers managed to locate Korvac after he had killed the Collector, the remaining heroes that had survived Korvac's attacks attacked him in concert, concentrating all of their energies in a single assault. Korvac looked to Carina for support, and she remained strong and returned her love with all her strength, giving Korvac the strength he needed to kill the Avengers. She then supported his efforts to bring order to the universe and was briefly impersonated by the Shaper of Worlds when the In-Betweener launched a sneak attack. Ultimately, her life energies were absorbed by Korvac as he drew power from all of the Earth's denizens.
