Throughout her childhood, Veronica’s parents wondered why she was such an angry, violent child. While she never hurt anyone, she was known to break objects, mostly her toys, when she got mad or excited. They endured it for a few years, but finally they took Veronica in to see a doctor.
What they found out amazed them. The doctor excitedly told them that Veronica had a condition that had never before been documented in medical history. Her adrenal glands seemed to produce 5 times the amount of adrenaline into her system as a normal human, which increased her “fight or flight” instincts and abilities by 5 times as well. This meant that any time Veronica’s heart beat at an above normal rate, she gained super strength, speed, and endurance.
Unfortunately for her parents, Veronica was an angrier than normal child. The doctor prescribed her depressants, which seemed to keep her calm most of the time. In high school, she seemed to be able to lead a normal life. However, she befriended a young man by the name of Dave Madison, and the two began dating. When Dave revealed to her that he was a mutant with the ability to control gravity, Veronica tearfully admitted the same. Her parents had told her that she was the only person in the world with superpowers, and that she must always suppress her abilities. Angry and inspired by her boyfriend, Veronica secretly stopped taking her medication, and found that now, at the age of 18, she could control her emotions much better. After graduation, she and Dave ran off and became a crime-fighting couple, until 6 years later they were asked to join Alpha Red.
