Magdalene employs a staff that fires unknown energy and the staff
itself can be used as a fighting tool.
An alternate-Earth counterpart of a woman named Marissa Darrow,
Magdalene was a member of the Gatherers and may have been, like the
other Gatherers, a member of the Avengers in an alternate reality.
The Gatherers had an ongoing enmity with the Avengers under the
influence of their leader, Proctor, who had duped most of them into
believing that the Avengers were a threat to reality and that one of
them in particular, Sersi, had to be destroyed. Magdalene
participated (albeit sometimes reluctantly) in their schemes until
Proctor tried to kill her fellow Gatherer, Philip Jarvert, the
Swordsman, with whom she was in love. Magdalene deserted Proctor to
be with the Swordsman, who had made his home with the Avengers. They
have been guests and unofficial members of the team since then,
though more recently they were given a home of their own by Avengers
financier Tony Stark.
