Elizabeth had been abused by her father until one day she killed him in self-defense. Elizabeth fled and changed her identity. As "Janine", she met Ben Reilly in Salt Lake City, Utah.[citation needed]

The two began a relationship and eventually shared their secrets with each other, Ben accepting Janine despite her past crime and Janine teasingly calling Ben 'Spider-Man' after he explained his origin as a clone. Ben and Janine began to go on the run in order to avoid the authorities who were after her for her murder of her father, Janine certain that she would just be condemned for the crime rather than accepted once the truth came out.[citation needed]

Hating the fact that Ben had found happiness, Kaine kidnapped Janine while the two were in Santa Cruz. Kaine promised to leave Ben alone if Janine would leave him, and when she finally agreed, Kaine made her fake her suicide.[citation needed]

Kaine unveiled Janine several years later when Ben was in New York City, now operating as Spider-Man during Peter's 'retirement'. Following Ben's final confrontation with Kaine, Janine confessed to the murder of her father to the police and turned herself in, Ben's words to Kaine convincing her that she had to accept what she had done and face the consequences.[citation needed]

Elizabeth somewhat resembles Mary Jane Watson.
