Obsessed with Natalia Romanova, the defective Black Widow, she underwent intensive training to surpass her idol.

She was offered help by the outlaw A.I.M. and was transformed into a Super-Adaptoid, in exchange of attacking the Avengers. Belova stayed involved with A.I.M. in different situations, even becoming the Minister of State of their own nation in Barbuda. She met her end in a war between A.I.M. and S.H.I.E.L.D. Avengers.
