The past history of Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine of Earth-9997 mirrors that of her Earth-616 counterpart.

Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Earth-9997) from Earth X Vol 1 1 0001

Hydra host

In recent history, she was still an active member of SHIELD when Norman Osborn manages to take control of the United States of America. When Nick Fury refused to deal with Osborn, Osborn had created the parasitic Hydra creatures from information he gained from the Bloodstone files. The Hydra were sent to attack and take down SHIELD's helicarrier, causing it to crash. A lot of SHIELD agents, Contessa among them, were transformed into hosts bodies for the Hydra organism.

Like all people infected with the Hydra, Contessa was killed and her body usurped by the Hydra parasite that clings to the chest of her body. While her soul was transported to the Realm of the Dead where it would relive moments of her history, her physical body became a member of the Hydra group led by the "Madam Hydra" which controlled the body of She-Hulk.

Most Hydra's ended up in New York, where they would be seemingly killed by the Skull's invading army, however the group would survive and return to a secret base. There, the Hydra would be banished to Limbo by Captain America, who armed with Rom's blaster.[citation needed]

Contessa's soul would be inducted in Mar-Vell's army of the dead in a final battle against Death, Thanos and Mephisto. Later she would be granted a place in Mar-Vell's Paradise, following this her current whereabouts are unknown.[citation needed]
