Madame X (Marvel)
Real Name: Nina Vladimirovna Tsiolkovsky
Search for 'Madame X (Marvel)' on Amazon

Known as Russia's greatest spy, early on, Madame X operated largely unknown by disguising herself as a man and going by the codename Comrade X.

Assigned to kidnap Ant-Man and steal his shrinking process (later known as Pym Particles), Madame X, posed as Comrade X's jilted lover and sought the help of the hero Ant-Man. While trying to aid her, Ant-Man hid in her purse, discovering her disguise. Deciding to play along, Ant-Man allowed himself to be captured and taken aboard a ship set to sail back to Russia. Ant-Man then called upon ants for their assistance and escaped his glass prison, overpowered Madame X and revealed Comrade X to be a disguise.

Years later she became the head of Hungary's People's Security Forces (PSF) (made up of many of Pym's enemies). The terrorist group known as A.I.M. involved Madame X in a plot to capture Pym and the rest of the West Coast Avengers by modifying a mutated agent to resemble Pym's long believed dead first wife, Maria Trovaya, placing the agent in Hungary's Bratislava Prison.

When the West Coast Avengers entered Hungary to investiage Maria, Madame X, along with the aid of the then insane Quicksilver, captured and arrested the Avengers for espionage. Forced to release some of the Avengers from captivity by her superiors, Madame X and the PSF were quickly defeated by them and they then freed the remaining Avengers. As they sought to escape, Madame X had a missile shoot the Avengers' Quinjet out of the air, but the Avengers survived and returned for Maria, who even though she was not the real Maria, helped the Avengers defeat Madame X and the PSF.
