Mrs. Dickel along with her husband owned the Gamma Ray Dude Ranch & Spa in the same desert where the gamma bomb explosion turned Bruce Banner into The Incredible Hulk.
During She-Hulk's adventures with Howard the Duck when she entered into an Encroachiverse that messed with the gamma radiation in her body turning her into a rampaging Savage She-Hulk much like her cousin in his earliest incarnations, She-Hulk encountered Jason Berg and Cara LeBlanc. Two teens that had been locked in the underground bunker that Banner used to use when his transformations were triggered at nightfall. She-Hulk sought out the bunker to lock herself in at night (she was experiencing the same thing her cousin had gone through) so she wouldn't be a danger to anyone. The teens were locked in the bunker because Mr. & Mrs. Dickel put them there, not to hurt them or punish them, but simply to keep them away from their customers at the Dude Ranch. Both had a single wart that grew on the backs of their hands that would glow and could emit powerful energy blasts. The customers at the dude ranch were ensured the gamma radiation levels had dropped to safe levels for humans, so when they saw the warts glow, it made them uneasy.
At nightfall, She-Hulk transformed into the savage version of herself and with the help of the teens and their energy blasts from their warts, they broke free from the bunker. She-Hulk was furious with her friends, Brent Wilcox and Weezi Mason for helping lock her in the bunker and started to look for them when the teens suggested they were probably at the Dude Ranch owned by the Dickels.
The three arrived and when She-Hulk saw her friends weren't there to smash, she started to smash the ranch. Finding the spas in the back, the steam made her pass out and fall into the water. Mr. Dickel pulled her from the water and they discovered the gamma radiation in the water transformed her back into her regular She-Hulk self.
