Beverly Switzler, who is named after an uncle who goes by "Lee," is an artist's model who found herself dressed in Hyborian Age attire in the castle of Pro-Rata on the Cuyahoga River. there, she met Howard the Duck and began a long friendship with him, which was explicilty consummated in the first issue of the black and white magazine.
While on the cruise ship Damned on which she escaped from a harem to which she had been kidnapped, she was kidnapped again by college acquaintance Lester Verde, now using the alias Doctor Bong, who forced her to marry him. Although she had come to accept this, she was eventually saved by Howard in his Iron Duck armor. They stayed together for a number of months, but eventually, she kicked him out.
Some time later, they got back together, and Beverly was working as a rent-a-ninja.
When next we see her, she and Howard are living in a shack in a junkyard. Beverly accepts a job at Globally Branded Content earning $100,000 a year to test the reactions of gay men to artificially-created boy bands created by Dr. Bong from primoridial soup. When Globally Branded is destroyed, Verde tells the authorities that Osama the Duck did it, but Howard's apparent death throws the authorities off the trail.
According to Howard the Duck #19, Beverly is based on Mary Skrenes.
