A young journalist working for the Front Line, Norah Winters usually made jokes about Peter Parker when they were investigating the Hammerhead assimilating Bronx gangs news story.[2] Norah also assisted Harry Osborn in solving the American Son and the Osborn mysteries when Harry's brother tried to kill him.[3]

Norah dated Rand Robertson for a short while before he decided to break up with her since he felt Norah was too obsessed with her job. She started dating her cameraman, Phil Urich. Unbeknownst to Norah, Phil was not only the supervillain Hobgoblin, he was also obsessed with her to the point of spying and stalking her.[4] When Phil was exposed as the Hobgoblin, he took Norah hostage and threatened to kill her. Norah subdued Phil and then broke up with him. Because of her association with Phil, who was now revealed to be a criminal, Robbie was forced to fire her.[5] After being laid off, Norah moved to the West Coast, but eventually returned to New York.[6]

Back in New York, Norah began her own news organization, Threats and Menaces, and recruited Jameson as a staff member, all to generate online news articles. However, she also conducted her business and actions under command of the Chameleon while he remained imprisoned. Under the villain's orders, Norah also attempted to recruit Peter Parker, due to his connection to Spider-Man, and intimate knowledge of the superhero community, but didn't receive an answer.[7]

Learning of an attack at Empire State University, Norah interviewed survivors and learned about Sin-Eater's power theft of those he "cleansed." Finding those he killed were resurrected and sent to Ravencroft, she went to the asylum to interview the Lethal Legion members, who were model inmates. To her surprise, Mayor Fisk made a once more functional Norman Osborn as head administrator, and he permitted her interviewing them. After completing her objective and updating Jonah of her progress, she was met by Sin-Eater in her car, and him shot him in reaction. However, instead of killing her, he asked Norah to record his "call to arms" for New Yorkers, which she did and posted on the TnM website, despite Jonah's objections.[8]
