Born in Kansas, Suzanne worked at a limestone plant for fifteen years until Roxxon closed it down and moved it to Madripoor. Out of work and several months pregnant, Suzanne and her boyfriend were recruited by space coyotes to work on grape harvests around the Shi'ar Galaxy.

Suzanne in the Reigarrt System.

When she and her boyfriend were separated somewhere in the Reigarrt System, Suzanne was detained by the Shi'ar border patrol for being an illegal alien. No agencies on Earth were alerted by Suzanne's arrest, as relations between Earth and the Shi'ar Empire had become conflicted following an incident when the Shi'ar tried to assassinate the resurrected Phoenix, so she was sentenced by the Shi'ar Intergalactic Court to spend the next three years in Ravenstarr Prison, while her unborn child was sentenced to two years, pending birth.

During transport to Ravenstarr, and as she was going into labor, Suzanne was given the power of the Star Brand. Using this power, she destroyed the prison cargo ship, damaged the space prison and escaped, which eventually caught the attention of both the Imperial Guard and the Heralds of Galactus who were chasing after her.[1]

The Avengers too were contact about the Star Brand having activated and went off to Ravenstarr to investigate. They were followed by Gladiator, Silver Surfer, Terrax and Firelord, who were also on the trail to find her.[2] As the two sides fought each other, Suzanne crashed into a planet’s moons, and while in labor pains, was confronted by Gladiator.[3] The Avengers were able to fight off Gladiator and the Heralds and helped Suzanne to deliver the baby, but the stress from both the labor and the power of the Star Brand were too much for Suzanne who died during childbirth. Her last words were that no matter what happened, her baby should return to her home planet.[1] The Avengers returned to Earth with the newborn baby girl, which they eventually named Brandy.[4]
