Maria Trovaya was the daughter of Dr. Janos Trovaya, a Hungarian geneticist and entomologist, who was killed in a suspicious laboratory explosion. Maria became Henry Pym's first wife, but on their honeymoon, she was kidnapped by Communist agents and supposedly killed, despite Pym's efforts to rescue her.[1]

A woman claiming to be Maria Trovaya appeared years later as a Communist test subject;[2] however, she was quickly revealed to be a fake, and instead mutated further into the super-criminal M.O.D.A.M..[3]

Years later, the Avengers discovered that she was the mother of Nadia, the future Wasp.[4]
