Lucia von Bardas became the Prime Minister of Latveria, due to the apparent "death" of Doctor Doom. Von Bardas was secretly funding American technology-based supercriminals through the Tinkerer. S.H.I.E.L.D. found out about this, but the President didn't take measures that Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. had suggested, believing that they could handle the situation diplomatically. In a panic, Fury gathered a group of heroes for an undercover mission to overthrow the Latverian government and assassinate von Bardas. Bardas apparently died when her castle exploded.

She appeared 1 year later attacking New York as a deformed cyborg. When the heroes (helped by Ms. Marvel) attacked her on a ship, she started to activate herself as a bomb taking Diamondback, Scorcher, Shocker, and Wizard along for the ride only to be defeated and deactivated by the heroes.[1]


Seemingly those of the Lucia von Bardas of Earth-616.

In the PSP, Wii, and PS2 versions on Ultimate Alliance 2, von Bardas invaded the New York streets directly. This eventually culminated in the superheroes following her to Times Square where she had planted a massive bomb (that had to be destroyed within 5 minutes). Upon the bomb's destruction, she collapsed, lamenting her failure to Latveria.
