The woman who would become the Madame Hydra (a.k.a. Viper, Leona Hiss, Mrs. Smith) was born in the 1920’s, orphaned at a young age by the death of her parents in an Eastern European revolution. In escaping the war-torn country, an unspecified accident scarred the right side of her face, and to compensate, she began wearing her hair so that it hid her disfigurement. She struggled for survival, wandering throughout Europe, finding crime to be her only means of survival. At some point, she entered into a pact with the Elder God Chthon that slowed her aging process, allowing her to become a fearsome mercenary and criminal as the years passed. Later, Madame Hydra, then known as Viper, found a mentor in Seraph, adventurer and guardian against the Hand ninja clan. Together, they helped rescue Wolverine from Sabretooth, and he also became Seraph’s pupil. Viper joined the subversive organization Hydra as one of the few female agents it had at that time. Ever ambitious, she quickly navigated her way to the highest ranks. When the Supreme Hydra of the time was believed to have died in the destruction of Hydra Island, the organization fragmented. Calling herself Madame Hydra, she seized control of the faction operating out of New York City.
