Origin

Displaying her psychosis as an infant, Mary Walker had been institutionalized from an early age, split between two distinct personalities, one sickly and introverted the other hyper-healthy and extraverted. Although the dominant personality was aware of her split-personality disorder, the introverted personality was not, and was manipulated by her darker persona.


Eventually escaping the institution, all record of Walker was lost until she reappeared as a stage actress in Chicago. She abruptly disappeared and reappeared in New York's Hell's Kitchen as a vigilante criminal. Raiding drug and gambling dens she robbed and often killed her criminal victims. Her activities brought her notice by the Kingpin, who instead of having her hunted and killed, hired her to emotionally destroy his arch-nemesis Daredevil.


Conflicted between her desires, Mary's personality became more unstable and was eventually captured and institutionalized by Daredevil. She eventually escaped again and continues her struggle with her enemies and herself as Typhoid Mary.
