(Captain America I#213) - After one of Kligger's assassins failed to kill The Defector, he asked her to call Night Flyer to send him after The Defector. Veda called Night Flyer and sent him off to his assignment.
(Captain America I#217) - Alongside Kligger, she watched as Captain America left the SHIELD Complex. Veda said that it was ironic that one of the new Super-Agents was actually a double agent working for The Corporation. While leaving Kligger's office, she thought that it should be her that killed Captain America. She later staged an attack on herself in front of Steve Rogers' apartment. Steve rescued her, and she kissed him, then she revealed that she knew he was Captain America.
(Captain America I#218) - Alongside Captain America, Veda was attacked once more, but again she was rescued by him. Captain America decided to take her to the Avengers Mansion in order to keep her safe. There she revealed to Captain America that she was the daughter of Agent R, a woman from Captain America's past. Their conversation was interrupted by Iron Man, who at first mistook Veda for Sharon Carter. Captain America left Veda alone to talk with Iron Man.
(Captain America I#220/1) - Still at the Avengers Mansion, Edwin Jarvis came to offer Veda a cup of hot chocolate or anything she desired. She politely declined, and when Jarvis left the room, she called Kligger to tell him about the current whereabouts of Captain America.
(Captain America I#222) - Disguised as an elderly woman living downstairs from Steve Rogers, Veda acted shocked when Captain America was attacked by a Volkswagon. She watched as Captain America called Nick Fury. After Captain America left the apartment, she took off her mask and called Kligger to tell him that Captain America was leaving for Washington D.C.
(Captain America I#223) - In Washington D.C., Veda met with Captain America at his hotel. She left him when he wanted to go to sleep, and joined him the next day for dinner. She learned that he would go back to New York City the same day. After Steve left the restaurant, she got a phone call from Kligger, who wanted to know the latest details in Captain America's life.
(Captain America I#225) - Called to the office of Kligger, Veda had a short conversation with him. She said that she would rather be his ally than his enemy; Kligger said that she had become a terrible liability to the Corporation and he terminated her. He disintegrated her and then called for housekeeping to clean up the ashes.
