History: (Machine Man I#5) - Tracy Warner was attending a costume party in Central City when the party was crashed by Machine Man, who showed off his powers to the crowd. Tracy won a dance with him, and revealed that she knew who he was from watching television, and was aware that he was in the midst of a battle with Ten-For, a malevolent extraterrestrial robot. She showed him a television broadcast of Peter Spaulding asking for his help, but Machine Man refused to become involved again, having no love for humanity. When Tracy confronted him on the issue, demanding to know why he wouldn't involve himself, he removed his human-like face, showing her his true self. She was shocked, but also felt sorry for him, and left.

(Machine Man I#6) - Tracy met up with Peter Spaulding and Colonel Kragg, and aided Spaulding in an attempt to convince Kragg that Machine Man should be treated as a person. Tracy watched as Ten-For broke out of the military's custody and went on a rampage. Machine Man finally came to confront Ten-For, and defeated him.

(Incredible Hulk II#235) - Tracy attended the closing of Machine Man's hearings with the U.S. government, and noted that the recent death of Senator Eugene Stivak had resulted in Machine Man's foe Miles Brickman being appointed his replacement in the Senate. However, Brickman ultimately ruled that Machine Man had the rights of a human being, and was to be placed in the custody of Peter Spaulding. Tracy gave Machine Man a congratulatory kiss.
