Real Name: Cecilia Cardinale
Search for 'Poison (Cecilia Cardinale)' on Amazon


Powers:
Poison possesses superhuman strength, exceptional athletic ability, as well as the power to levitate herself. She can also psionically alter the shape of the flesh of other people.

Bio:
Cecelia Cardinale was a first year student at the University of Havana. She was imprisoned in a Cuban prison under charges of being a prostitute by Vassily, a member of the military staff at the Soviet embassy. When she became mysteriously ill, she was transported to America, where she lived in a Florida refugee camp and gave birth to her son, Carlos. A mysterious other-dimensional entity named Ylandris appeared to Cecelia as she lay dying from her illness; Ylandris claimed to be dying as well, and proposed merging her essence with Cecelia to keep both beings alive. She took the name Poison, and became a vigilante, striking out primarily against those who had wronged her before.

Poison encountered Spider-Man, and the two traveled to the Nexus of All Realities in the Florida Everglades, where the Man-Thing lives. Ylandris was able to split herself off from Cecelia and use the Nexus to return to her home dimension. Poison retained her superhuman powers even after the departure of Ylandris.

Poison returned in an eight-part serial in Marvel Comics Presents #60-67, also by Gerber and Martin. In this story, she aided Joe Trinity, who communicates with his mop, which he calls Myrna. In reality, it is a supernatural force called Mrinhä that is seeking to possess him, taking advantage of his breakup with his ex-wife, whose new husband is working for the mobster called Slug, to interface with him, eventually joining with him and destroying the mop. Poison destroys Mrinhä by taking it up herself and having her Ylandris powers destroy it.

The Cardinales moved to New York City and encountered Ben Reilly, not realizing that he was not the same Spider-Man that she had met.

Much later, Poison was one of numerous minor heroes and villains killed and resurrected in the service of the Hand. She took place in a combined assault by the forces of the Hand and HYDRA on the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier. While many of those involved in the assault were killed, Poison's fate remains unknown.
