Whitney Frost was raised as a New York socialite by wealthy financier Byron Frost. When Byron Frost died, Whitney learned that she was adopted and her biological father is Count Nefaria, the head of the Maggia criminal organization.
Frost was manipulated into becoming Nefaria's heir, assuming control of the Maggia when Count Nefaria was imprisoned. Following a disastrous raid on Stark Industries' headquarters, Frost's face was cruelly disfigured and she adopted the golden visage of Madame Masque.
