Milla is introduced when she accidentally walks in front of an oncoming truck and is rescued by Daredevil. After getting her to help, Daredevil realizes she is blind.
Milla later visits Matt Murdock (whose secret identity as Daredevil has been publicized) to thank him and asks him out on a date. While Matt is hesitant on saying anything that would implicate him, he agrees to go out with her.
Their date is interrupted when Matt is brought in for a murder investigation of the owner of the "Globe", whom Matt was suing for posting his secret identity. In fact, it was the Kingpin that had committed the crime, and not Murdock.
Shaken up by this experience, Milla hesitats on continuing her relationship but persists due to the encouragement of one of her friends. She then experiences first-hand two of Daredevil's foes when Typhoid Mary first attacked Matt in broad daylight. Later, the assassin called Bullseye, killer of two of Matt's previous girlfriends, attempts to murder Milla as well, but is stopped by Daredevil.
The two are later married, but Milla seeks to annul the marriage when she discovers that Matt was possibly suffering a nervous breakdown earlier due to the stress over the death of Matt's previous girlfriend, Karen Page and her marriage was a product of that. She later returns to Matt, but he is arrested, as conclusive evidence that Matt is Daredevil has been discovered by the FBI. The two did not speak for some time, but Milla did appear at the funeral of Foggy Nelson. Later, she recently visited him in prison, but he refuses to talk, as he is trying to get her away from the prison, due to a near imminent riot.
After Matt's escape from Ryker's (during which he teamed up with The Punisher, pretending to be his hostage until they got out), it wasn't until Matt's return from France that the pair was reunited. Soon after, the return of Lily Lucca (a woman Matt met in France, whose perfume smells like their fondest memories. In Matt's case, Karen Page.) causes argument between Milla and Matt, who argue briefly over the situation until they're attacked at a restaraunt by The Gladiator. The Gladiator later kidnaps Milla and tosses her off a building. Rescued by Daredevil, Milla proceeds to tell Daredevil not to kill the Gladiator, who seems to be in an unusual amount of pain and under someone else's control. Daredevil spares him, and leaves Milla alone while he pursues an as-yet-unnamed supervillain -- presumingly the one who'd been influencing Melvin Potter.
After a few hours left alone, Milla goes to the law office to find Matt. After discovering he's out being Daredevil, Foggy volunteers to take Milla home, accompanied by Lily Lucca, toward whom Milla has extremely hostile tendancies. While in the subway station, Lily attempts to be helpful, only to be met with an exclamation of, "Just die, bitch!" before Milla tries to push her in front of an oncoming train. Lily bumps into an older man, who ends up falling in front of the train and dying instead. (It should be noted that Daredevil's plot as this happens involves a drug whose effects have yet to be fully explained, and that Milla is acting strangely.) Milla seems apalled by what she's apparently just done. Meanwhile, Daredevil is being incapacitated by a masked villain who claims to know Milla.
Milla is currently under house arrest and awaiting her trial.
Blind, married Daredevil
