General Sam Ryan was a long time friend of J. Jonah Jameson. He became a decorated general in the United States Army during the war. Eventually he came in contact with a talented Korean medic, Young Soo Pock. Together they developed a program called S.C.A.R.s (Strategic Capture And Retrieval). The program built upon previous work with Super Soldier program, but used cybernetic enhancements. Unfortunately, the cybernetic upgrades seemed to cause mental instability. Two of the recruits, Ballistique and Rocky began taking mercenary jobs on the side to allow them to kill more. Finally, S.C.A.R.s was disbanded.[1] Ballistique and Rococo were both mind-wiped and given civilian lives.[2][3] Sylvius, the only member of S.C.A.R.s who appeared mentally stable, was allowed to stay in military service though she was told Ballistique and Rocky had died.[1]

General Ryan, J. Jonah Jameson and Dr. Pock

Ballistique remained in a civil life for decades as a war vet suffering from PTSD until she contacted Monet looking for mental relief from her anguish. Monet agreed to help, but her telepathic interventions inadvertently unlocked Ballistique's true memories. Almost immediately Ballistique travelled to Richmond Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia to killed General Ryan while he visited his wife's grave.[2]

Mayor Jameson hired X-Factor Investigations to find Ryan's killer. Meanwhile, Ballistique reunited with her former partners, Rocky and Sylvius. The trio attempted to assassinate Mayor Jameson at a public rally, but were foiled by X-Factor Investigations' and Black Cat's intervention. However, Ballistique did fatally wound Strong Guy[4] Later, the trio was successful abducting Dr. Pock, but were again foiled by X-Factor and Black Cat. Monet was able to psychically attack Ballistique, leaving her in a permanent coma. Sylvius and Rococo, however, were able to escape.[1]
