Gale is free, and wants to destroy the RavencroftHistory: (Web of Spider-Man Annual I#10 - BTS) - Gale was a physical fitness nut. She was mad, and she had no control on her strength. She was sent to the Ravencroft, Dr. Kafka's treatments helped her to keep the control of her strength.

(Web of Spider-Man Annual I#10) - Gale was in one of the security cells when Shriek was taken to the Institute. Thanks to Barker's emotions, Shriek fed enough to free herself, Gale, and other "guests" of the Institute: Pyromania, Mayhem, and Webber, manipulating all them with her powers. However, Mayhem didn't want to ally with assassins like them, so attacked them with her toxic mist. Gale ripped a big metallic panel from the wall and smashed it on Mayhem, knocking her down. Soon after, she smashed a titanium door with the help of Pyromania's flames and Shriek's energetic blasts.

    In the following chamber they found Spider-Man and John Jameson (the security chief) and a fight started. Gale assaulted John Jameson who shot a couple of sedative darts to her, with no effect. Then Jameson run in direction of Shriek, but Gale pursued him. Jameson was tripped up by Webber, but managed to increase the darts sedative level and shot two more darts at Gale. Stunned, she fell on Webber, knocking him down, too.

    A few minutes later Gale, Pyromania, and Webber were rising again, and were being again manipulated by Shriek, who changed ideas and directed her energy powers against them. Spider-Man saved them, and after having defeated the shrieking criminal with the help of Jameson, took Gale and the other criminals in their cells.

(Ruins of Ravencroft: Dracula#1) - After Ravencroft was reconstructed Gale was one of the super-villains sent back to Ravencroft in chains.

(Ravencroft#4) - Gale escaped Ravencroft during a mass breakout after they were all released from their cells by Bud Adams and the Unwanted.

Comments: Created by Terry Kavanagh/Mike Lackey, Jerry Bingham and Tom Palmer.

If you saw a character named Gale, you'd assume he or she had wind powers, right? Where are the wind powers? I nearly f'd up an entry in the Spider-Man Encyclopedia based on that ASSumption.
