Dr. Karla Sofen was a psychologist who used her abilities to manipulate her patients. One of them was the original Moonstone, who Sofen convinced into giving her the Kree Lifestone which gave him his powers. Karla absorbed the stone and acquired its powers, with which Karla became a criminal for hire.[1]


Moonstone first appeared alongside Hydra when the terrorist organization tried to take over Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum. She was defeated by Ms. Marvel, who after the battle took the Lifestone from her and left her to be taken to custody by S.H.I.E.L.D..[1]


Moonstone later escaped from the Raft, and recovered her gem, which was stolen during one of the riots in said prison. She joined Baron Zemo's fraction during the schism between he and Viper for being the right hand of the returned Red Skull. She was defeated by Captain America and the Alliance.[1]
