Powers/Abilities: Through a perfume created by Mr. Fear (Larry Cranston), Lily Lucca inherently inspires scent memories in men, making them think of their fondest memories or their greatest love, and making them want to please Lily. Lily's power has been known to spark violence between those vying for her affections. Lily is an avid and talented liar.
(Daredevil II#91 (fb) - BTS) - Daughter of multi-millionaire Tybold Lucca, who owned estates and casinos in Monaco, Lily grew to resent her father. When she was contacted by Vanessa Fisk in a massive revenge scheme against Daredevil, Lily agreed to go along with it with the promise that her father would be killed and she would inherit his estate. She was connected to others in the conspiracy, including the assassin Tombstone, the new Matador (Juan), and American attorney Alton Lennox. Vanessa gave Lily a perfume to wear, telling her that it would inspire fond scent memories in men, making them want to please her. She started sleeping with Matador.
(Daredevil II#89) - Lily looked around her father's casino, inviting high-rolling gamblers to his party that evening. She approached Ray Mallory (knowing it was Daredevil), telling him a car would be waiting for him that evening and walking away before he could refuse. When Mallory showed up at the party that night, Lily greeted him, growing defensive when he asked about Alton Lennox. She casually explained that her father was a dangerous man, seeking to establish a criminal connection to the men from Spain that were at the event. Warning Mallory his life could be in danger and not revealing that Lucca was her father, she walked him through the grounds, past his caged beasts, and they watched Matador fight lions. Tybold announced that Lily was pledged to marry Jaime Munoz, while Lennox touched her familiarly. Matador shocked everyone when he stabbed Tybold through the abdomen and Lily screamed in horror. Lennox tried rushing Lily to safety as Matador chased, but Daredevil arrived to fight him off. As Lennox drove Lily away, she muttered to Daredevil to save her. He felt the need to save her, reminded of scents of his dead love, Karen Page.
(Daredevil II#91 (fb) - BTS) - Lily slept with Lennox, then killed him. Tombstone or Matador may have committed the murder, but she was ordered to see him dead.
(Daredevil II#90) - Daredevil tracked Lily and Lucca to Sintra, Portugal, where he found Lennox dead in their room. Tombstone was driving away with Lily, her hands tied, when Daredevil jumped on the car. Tombstone fought Daredevil as Lily watched and she pathetically hit Tombstone with a pipe, telling him to stop it. He smacked her down, taking her back to the car and driving away while Daredevil fought unconsciousness. They traveled to Paris, where Lily yelled at Tombstone for hitting hr, but he claimed he was trying to make it look real. She returned to bed with Matador, who was overcome with scent memories of his mother.
(Daredevil II#91) - Positive Daredevil was nearby, Lily was forced into the car by Tombstone, in tears and with her hands tied. Tombstone drove her a ways, where he was to hand her off to Matador. As she screamed for help, she looked right up at where Daredevil was, not knowing he was on to her. Daredevil jumped in and knocked the villains down, shocking Lily when he pushed her to the ground. After Daredevil defeated Tombstone, Matador held a knife to her throat and she begged him to free her. When he drew blood, she screamed, but he pulled away, unable to go through with it. He revealed that he'd promised to kill her but that he couldn't do it because he loved her. Daredevil punched Matador down as Lily pathetically claimed that they'd forced her to do what she did and that they'd killed her father. He knew she was lying and that she'd killed Lennox. He helped her realize that Vanessa had turned on her, so Lily revealed Vanessa's identity.
(Daredevil II#97 (fb)) - Lily was getting a drink at a bar when two men, including Barry, started fighting over who got to buy her a drink. Barry got violent and Lily ran for it, realizing her scent powers were still there even though she'd stopped wearing the perfume. She decided to go to Daredevil for help.
(Daredevil II#92 (fb)) - Daredevil went after Vanessa and let Lily go free.
(Daredevil II#93) - Lily boarded a plane for America, putting off a man who offered to help her stow her baggage.
(Daredevil II#96) - Lily showed up at the office of Matt Murdock and Franklin “Foggy” Nelson, having heard that Matt was Daredevil. Foggy was immediately taken by Lily, but Matt was furious to see her there.
(Daredevil II#97) - Matt, unwilling to excuse Lily's crimes, was unsympathetic to Lily's challenges. She knew that one of Daredevil's enemies initially made the perfume. Matt agreed to let her work with private investigator Dakota North on the case. She met Dakota and Matt for dinner later, but Matt left to meet his wife. Lily was shocked and saddened to learn he was married.
(Daredevil II#99) - Foggy checked in on Lily and Dakota, who were still looking for proof on how to solve Lily's problem. Despite knowing about her scent ability, Foggy invited Lily for coffee and they retired to the kitchen. When Milla Donovan, Matt's wife, came through, she screamed at Lily for being in her husband's office. Lily eavesdropped on Milla confiding in Foggy about her fears for Matt. While Dakota worked on establishing links, Lily agreed to walk with Foggy to get Milla back to the house. In the subway, Milla grew more erratic and accused Lily of making moves on Matt. Lily, shocked, moved to leave, but Milla tried shoving her in front of the subway. Lily bumped against a man, who fell to his death. Lily, in tears, was surrounded by men who tried to comfort her as Milla realized what had happened.
(Daredevil II#100) - Milla was arrested for the murder as Lily and Foggy tried contacting Matt.
(Daredevil II#105 (fb)) - Lily returned to her apartment and found Mr. Fear inside. He realized he was behind her scent powers and he ordered her to use her powers to see to Milla's release. Scared to death, she agreed to help and he promised to give her everything she wanted. Wanting Matt for herself, she begged Mr. Fear not to hurt him.
(Daredevil II#103) - Lily and Foggy met with DA Algren about the attack, letting him know that Milla hadn't actually tried to attack her and that she believed Milla had only slipped. Algren recommended she get her own attorney, but Foggy, his hand on Lily's shoulder, let Algren know he was only there as a friend. Algren found himself flirting with Lily. Algren took her information into account, obviously overcome with her scent memory powers. Foggy grew frustrated with Lily for using her powers immorally, but couldn't stay mad at her. He encouraged her not to go see Matt and Milla, who had been released on house arrest. Lily showed up at Matt's address with flowers and the nurse Elsa answered the door.
(Daredevil II#104 (fb) - BTS) - Milla was furious to see Lily and lashed out in a rage, beating Elsa repeatedly. Lily went running.
(Daredevil II#104) - Lily got in a cab, crying her apologies to Matt. Daredevil showed up at her home, grabbing her by the neck and screaming how she'd ruin his life.
(Daredevil II#105 - BTS) - Daredevil managed to track down Mr. Fear, who was incarcerated, but he learned that Fear had driven Milla incurably insane. Lily rushed off without a farewell.
