Elspeth Cromwell was a famous witch-hunter, known for her ability to use dark magics against other dark wizards without ever actually being corrupted by them herself, although she had cut herself off from most human contact. She was called by Alma Chalmers to destroy Reed Richards and Susan Storm; Alma had incorrectly identified them as witches during a time when the Richards' were attempting to create a more conventional family life for themselves in the suburban neighborhood of Belle Porte, Connecticut. Convinced that the Richards' were witches despite their attempts to convince her otherwise, her attack persisted until she spilled the blood of an innocent by injuring Franklin Richards during the battle with his parents, and by doing so, she summoned Mephisto. Having lost control of the forces she had summoned, Cromwell died in the conflict, with Stephen Strange pronouncing her dead as the dark forces she had sought to control claimed their dividend from her, warning Mrs Chalmers to consider the price she paid for meddling in the affairs of her neighbours in future.
