History

Working with Silvermane’s other operatives, Speed Demon, Hydro-Man, Beetle, and Boomerang, she sought out the cyborg Deathlok in order to retrieve him for her Maggia ally, but the operation gained the attention of Spider-Man, and though Scorpia proved herself to be a formidable enemy, she was ultimately taken out.[1]

Scorpia recovered, and brought the surrendering Deathlok back to Silvermane. She was then ordered to ambush Spider-Man and Daredevil, who had infiltrated their base. She was able to wear them down, but was then betrayed by Silvermane, who shot her in the back. Infuriated, Scorpia vowed revenge, and followed Spider-Man and Daredevil to his location. Once there, she immediately attacked, ending her dispute with the heroes and instead going right for her former employer. Mainframe, another of Silvermane's mercenaries, took control over Scorpia's cybernetic enhancements and used her to attack Spider-Man; however, she soon regained mobility and blasted Silvermane. An explosion created by the Punisher knocked Scorpia off the building they were on, but a mentally-conflicted Deathlok saved her. She then decided to flee the area, rather than be put in prison.[2]

Scorpia then joined the new Sinister Seven alongside The Hobgoblin, Electro, Mysterio, the Vulture, the Shocker, and the Beetle. Their main purpose was to stop Kaine from killing any more of Spider-Man's enemies.[3]

After Hobgoblin was attacked by Kaine in Spider-Man's disguise, Scorpia immediately joined the others in the battle; however, they were not accustomed to working together, much to Scorpia's disdain. Spider-Man eventually entered the battle and was able to defeat Scorpia herself. She also participated in another battle against Spider-Man with some of her former allies, and new ones such as Boomerang and Jack O'Lantern. She was defeated when Spider-Man threw Jack O'Lantern at her.[4]

More recently, Scorpia was seen attacking Carnegie Hall in search of a man named Garrison Klum, who she had planned to assassinate in a redesigned suit. She was able to fight her way through various policemen and thugs, but was attacked by Spider-Man and Black Cat. Scorpia held her own against the pair, but Black Cat was able to rip her tail off by jumping out of a hole in the wall while connected to it.[5] She was later interrogated by Spider-Man at Midtown North Precinct, where she revealed she was hired by Alberto Ortega, the head of a local drug syndicate.[6]

Scorpia was among several animal-themed super-villains captured by Taskmaster and Black Ant to serve as hunting targets in Central Park for Kraven the Hunter, Arcade, and a host of wealthy participants controlling robotic drones.[7] As the drones began killing several super-villains, Scorpia and several others agreed to appointing the Vulture as their leader.[8] Alongside Vulture and his army of villains, Scorpia ambushed the drones.[9] After the forcefield holding the criminals inside of Central Park deactivated, Scorpia managed to escape.

When the Beetle founded an all-female criminal enterprise named the Syndicate, Scorpia was part of it.[10] Together, they went after Boomerang for revenge.[11] After Beetle arranged behind her partners' back to hand him over to the Kingpin,[12] the entirety of the Syndicate felt compelled to help him evade arrest when he disclosed that he was trying to keep the pieces of the Lifeline Tablet out of Fisk's hands. The Syndicate were subsequently apprehended, but Beetle broke them out of police custody.[13] Not long afterward, Beetle was kidnapped by Madame Masque and Crime Master due to being the daughter of Tombstone. Tombstone enlisted the help of the Syndicate to rescue her and her boyfriend Randy Robertson. In the process, Scorpia and her teammates unwillingly teamed up with Spider-Man again, who was also helping foil Masque's and Crime Master's plans.[14]

Scorpia was next seen robbing a bank in Jersey City, though she was quickly defeated by both Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel.[15]

As part of his final attack against Spider-Man, the demonic Kindred abducted numerous villains that had been recently involved in the hero's life and implanted parasites in their brains to force them to do his bidding, including Scorpia. After capturing Spider-Man, Kindred let the villains loose on the hero, having promised that whoever killed the Web-Slinger was the only one to escape eternal damnation at his hands.[16] The villains waged war against Spider-Man and each other until Doctor Octopus managed to broadcast an ultrasonic frequency that killed the parasites inside every villain's brain, neutralizing Kindred's only leverage on them, but also knocking all of them unconscious.[17]

Equipment

Weapons

Scorpia’s primary weapon is her upgraded Scorpion suit (see main image) which enhances her strength and speed five hundred percent. It is equipped with a version of the original Scorpion’s tail that can be used to slice, crush, strangle, or fire energy bursts at her foes. In addition, her costume has forearm “pincers” that have razor sharp edges for slashing and they can also fire energy blasts.
