History: Not much is known about the history of Lillian Hsu. She was student at the Empire State University and soon became the favorite student of Peregrin Took. She became close with him and learned many things about his past only the closest friends knew.

(MCP#127/4) - Lillian brought Took some herbal tea and was introduced to his friend Daniel Rand. When Lillian was on her way home Daniel asked he if she needed a lift. She didn't want to detract him from his quest because Took wouldn't like it, but she took the opportunity anyway. Warrant attacked Daniel and Lillian on the cycle and Lillian fell from it to the street.

(MCP#128/4) - Lillian threw a tyre over Warrant which blocked his stun-ray. Iron Fist then brought Lillian home and she allowed him to stay over the night , though he had to sleep on the couch. In the morning she introduced Daniel to her brother Doug who was making one of his rare visits home. Lillian was thinking about the terrible clothes and her feelings for Iron Fist when he left on his cycle, unaware she was being watched by Cool Million.

(MCP#129/4) - That evening Lillian opened the door to Cool Million who tricked her with his powers in to coming with him. She left with him, tied up in his car. Lillian was used as a hostage when Cool Millions faced Iron Fist at the scrapyard of the Mechanic and threatened with a gun. She was thrown back into the car after Iron Fist was defeated by Cool Million. A short time later she was freed by Iron Fist, but they were already at the Hydra base and agents brought them down to Baron Strucker.

(MCP#130/4) - Lillian wanted to know who these lunatics were and was shocked when Baron Strucker killed one of his own men for being overpowered by her brother Doug. She was thrown into the Living Room together with Iron Fist and Doug. She didn't want to hear the babbling of Iron Fist about the creature, but she was happy when they got out of it alive. She ran with Iron Fist and Doug away from the Living Room to Baron Strucker who showed them that he now had two Anomalies.

(MCP#131/4) - Lillian was thrown back like the others by the energy feedback of the Anomalies. She wanted to know where the second one came from, but Iron Fist didn't know it. She watched Iron Fist help the spawns of the Living Room come into the room and ran away from Strucker and his agents together with her brother, Iron Fist and the Anomalies. Iron Fist dragged her to the opened door which closed shortly after they got out of the headquarters. On the outside she saw the Anomalies rise into the air.

(MCP#132/4) - Iron Fist threw her to the ground when the Anomalies opened a portal to another dimension. She listened to the words of the Contemplator and saw the transformation of Iron Fist. She didn't know what to make of the words of the Contemplator.

The colorist Mike Thomas had his troubles with the eyes of the characters. For the most times all eyes were blank, but the eye color of Lillian changed from brown to green in one panel of#132.
