Lynn was a cop with the NYPD until she became irritated with the department's corruption and inability to bring in a serial rapist. She attempted to capture him herself by posing as bait, but the Punisher stepped in and, in a strange turn of events, the rapist escaped. Later, she teamed up with him to take down the rapist.[3] Sometimes she had some deep feelings for Frank, but, after reading his War Journal, she becomes disappointed and deeply hurt, and later burns it, because she isn't mentioned and decides to disappear from his life.[4]

After the Civil War, she was listed as a sympathizer to the Superhuman Registration Act.[5]

At some point, she joined S.H.I.E.L.D. as a deep cover operative. Infiltrating Jigsaw's organization, she brainwashed Ian, a man who lost his family in Stamford, into an assassin.[6] Also, she disguised herself as Diamonelle, a woman who gave the Punisher medical assistance. When Frank was captured, she shot Stuart Clarke to stop him from breaking Frank out. Later, when Jigsaw and the Punisher were in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, she let Ian shoot Jigsaw to make up for the fact that she brainwashed him. She was last seen being arrested for these actions and her whereabouts are unknown.[7]
