Moonstone (Marvel)(02 - Karla Sofen)
Real Name: Karla Sofen
Search for 'Moonstone (Marvel)(02 - Karla Sofen)' on Amazon

Karla absorbed the moonstone gem from the first Moonstone and gained incredible powers. Powers dramatically increased when she absorbed a second moonstone from the Moonstone of Counter-Earth. She has since lost both moonstones...

Karla grew up in the mansion of a Hollywood producer, the child of a butler. After her father died, her mother worked three jobs to put her daughter through the best colleges and Karla vowed never to end up like her mother, and never to put another's needs before her own. Despite building a successful psychological practice, Karla so disliked being dependent on her patients for income that she and entered the super-criminal world as an aide to Dr. Faustus. Learning of Moonstone (Lloyd Bloch), she became his psychologist and manipulated him into rejecting his moonstone, which she then absorbed to gain the powers of Moonstone.

Karla worked briefly for the Corporation, controlling the Hulk and manipulating General Thunderbolt Ross into a nervous breakdown. She continued to pursue greater power, stealing Curt Connors' Enervator and searching the moon's surface for further moonstone fragments. First Egghead and then Baron (Helmut) Zemo recruited Moonstone for their Masters of Evil, and she aided each against the Avengers. After the last of these fights, she decided to serve out her prison term and give up her criminal life. However, when Zemo formed a group of villains to masquerade as heroes, he broke Moonstone out of the Vault and she returned to villainy as the Thunderbolt Meteorite. After their ruse was exposed, she remained with the Thunderbolts as they tried to reform, becoming romantically involved with Hawkeye.

Karla's road to redemption was less than smooth. She executed the Kosmosian Primotur, and appeared to betray the Thunderbolts to both the new Masters of Evil and Graviton before rejoining the team. When the Thunderbolts were trapped on Counter-Earth, Karla removed a second moonstone from that world's Lloyd Bloch (known there as the Phantom Eagle), dramatically increasing her own powers. When the Avengers later interfered in the Thunderbolts' plan to control the world's "transnormal energy," a failsafe Karla had planted against Zemo was triggered and the stolen energy was funnelled into her moonstones. Karla attempted to use this energy to flee, but the Thunderbolts and Avengers combined forces to stop her. In the end, Zemo ended up in possession of both moonstones and Karla was left comatose.

Currently, Zemo is in control of Karla, forcing her to act as a puppet (in such acts as attacking the Thunderbolts). It is unclear whether she is aware of these acts or still comatose...
