While she attended a university in New York, a post-grad student with a research grant for her studies in biology she was both ambitious and directionless. She was working on a potential break-through in genetic medicine but couldn't find the missing piece of her puzzle until she met Edward Wynne, a biologist at the top of his field born with a slight birth defect. June figured if biology was fallible, then it could also perfected. That realization led to the creation of her Genetic Plug-in Technology, and she used herself as her first test subject.

June experimented on several individuals, resulting in their deaths, but she claimed it was because their DNA was inferior. However, one year later she believed she was ready to show her work to Wynne and help him on his way to perfection.

June was one of the five most dangerous criminals housed in the SCC, but she seemed to coexist well with the others in her cell block, showing concern over reportedly deceased inmate Carl Rives and expressing anger when Officer Martin tortured the murderous Ai Apaec. When a mysterious Goblin cult liberated Osborn, they incited a prison riot after releasing all the inmates. She was attacked by another prisoner and had her body broken, but because of the enhancements she gave herself, June repaired her body and killed her attacker. Staying with Osborn until they escaped the SCC, she inserted herself back into society, getting a doctor’s position at the Raft maximum security prison where she treated Osborn. Developing an intimate relationship with Osborn, she adopted the Scarlet Witch's identity in Osborn's second incarnation of his Avengers (Osborn's team) in an attempt to disgrace the heroic team with the same name. Betrayed by Skaar, who only pretended to go along with Osborn’s plans until he could free Captain America (Steve Rogers), June was incarcerated at the Raft. Soon after, she became part of Luke Cage's Thunderbolts when the previous team was seemingly lost in the time stream.
