Black Mamba can summon the darkforce to suffocate her enemies in a feeling of ecstasy. She has mild telepathy and was given gills, which enables her to breathe underwater.
Once a call-girl, Black Mamba was selected and employed by Roxxon Oil as a mercenary. She later joined the snake-themed villain group the Serpent Society, but left the group after friend and teammate Diamondback was ousted. She then formed B.A.D. Girls, Inc. with Diamondback and former Society member Asp.
She joined her fellow B.A.D. Girls in siding with Captain America in opposition to the Superhuman Registration Act. Afterwards, joined the Women Warriors as part of the Initiative.
Black Mamba would later be hired by the Assassins Guild after choosing a career as an independent assassin, and took part in the Guild's battle with X-Force. She ended up seriously wounded in that confrontation, but she was healed by Elixir. Later, she would hunt down Elektra for the group with some former Serpent Squad teammates. She would also help the group battle Deadpool, only to be seriously injured.
Black Mamba appeared with Viper (Jordan Dixon) as part of Serpent Solutions. She and other female members of the group interrupted Thing's birthday party, but were defeated by the superheroes who had attended the gathering.
She was later captured by Taskmaster and Black Ant and, along with other animal-themed supervillains, used as a hunting target for Kraven the Hunter and Arcade's Central Park hunt for wealthy participants. Led by Vulture, she and others attacked and destroyed several hunting drones.
