History: (Iron Man III#75) - Christine was part of the Washington D.C. press corps who attended the press conference held by Tony Stark to formally announce his bid as candidate for US Secretary of Defense. In attendance with Tony were Stu Conrad of the Pentagon's acqusitions department and the President's press secretary Artemus Pithins. Just as the conference was being wound down, Christine stepped forward with a question for Stark. Tony happily agreed to answer her question as he complimented her for having a beautiful name, to the great concern of Conrad and Pithins. Everhart's question was, based on his announcement, had he been "hit on the head one too many times by the Mandarin?" Conrad and Pithins quickly spirited Tony away as Everhart called after them, demanding to know if Tony had been flirting with her.

Later, Christine appeared on the television program "Morning USA" in which she commented upon footage from a senate hearing held years ago by Senator Harrington Byrd to determine the identity of Iron Man. On that occasion, Tony had concealed his identity from the public and Christine voiced her skepticism of Stark because of the lies he had told over the years. She had also been to visit Senator Byrd and prepared an interview with him on the subject matter.

Comments: Created by John Jackson Miller and Jorge Lucas.

Pithins remarked of Christine: "Terrible woman. Her parents named her after an evil car..."

Christine Everhart also appeared in the 2008 Iron Man film where she was portrayed by actress Leslie Bibb as a Vanity Fair correspondant. She's possibly the most obscure Marvel character to wind up on the silver screen.
