(Daredevil II#69 (fb) - BTS) - Del Toro requested to be assigned to the team investigating Marr Murdock, who was suspected to be the hero Daredevil. She wanted to understand what prompted him to be a hero.
(Daredevil II#58) - Agents Driver and Del Toro questioned Sano Ren, but he claimed to have been peaceably leaving a dinner when a man attacked him. The agents grew frustrated and promised to charge Orii with a concealed weapon charge at least. Before leaving, Driver insulted Orii, claiming that he was a disgrace to his father and his name.
(Daredevil II#59) - Driver and Del Toro watched as Ren and the others were let free, and Driver was highly annoyed. He and Del Toro were only recently assigned as partners and still getting to know each other. Del Toro wondered why they didn't go to Daredevil for help, but Driver said no and that he expected the Yakuza to just back off now. Just then a van pulled up and opened fire on them, hitting Driver with several shots. As Del Toro leapt out of the car, it exploded, killing Driver.

(Daredevil II#68 (fb)) - Though she was supposed to be forming a case against Matt Murdock, Del Toro approached him at his home, wanting to put all pretenses aside and understand why he was a hero. She showed him the amulets to help him understand.
(Daredevil II#69 (fb)) - Del Toro continued probing Murdock with questions, telling him she would break the law, that she was planning on leaving the FBI, that she needed his help. He finally agreed to meet her on the roof of a local church at 11 pm, telling her she would have to find a way up there. She put on the amulet and managed to climb on the roof, her gun drawn. Daredevil dared her to jump to a nearby roof to meet him, and, though reluctant, she made the jump. He then invited her to try and hit him.
(Daredevil II#70 (fb)) - Del Toro grew frightened and frustrated as she evaded several blows from Daredevil, then she suddenly realized that she had increased agility. He knocked her down and she got up again, continuing to spar as Daredevil talked about the history of the amulet around her neck. After defending a dozen blows, she finally managed to land one. She asked again why he did what he did, and he jumped off a ledge, inviting her to follow. She considered stopping, but jumped anyway, and saw a robbery inside a gas station. She drew her gun and moved to call for backup, but Daredevil encouraged her to follow his lead. She entered, shooting one of the robbers, then tossed the other to the floor when he shot at her. The store manager thanked her, then Daredevil told her simply that that was why he did it, and that the costume was a symbol.

(Daredevil II#78 (fb) - BTS) - Del Toro learned from some friends that the Kingpin's information on Murdock was being held in the office of a lawyer named Sam Baruch.
(Daredevil II#78) - Wearing the amulets, Del Toro went on the roof near Baruch's office and was shocked to see Daredevil, the Black Widow, and Elektra there. After meeting the women, she was shocked when Bullseye attacked.
(Daredevil II#79) - Though she felt she was strong enough to stay and fight, Daredevil didn't want Del Toro killed so he kicked her off the roof. She landed in a soft truck bed, her arm broken.
(White Tiger#1 (fb) - BTS) - Del Toro's broken arm healed within weeks due to the amulet. She had to lie to the doctor about the recovery.
(White Tiger#1 (fb) - BTS) - Del Toro designed a costume for herself, all of black, and moved into the apartment Driver had left for her in his will. She started fighting crime in the local neighborhood.
(White Tiger#1) - Not really understanding how she'd been caught up in the whole hero game, White Tiger interrupted a fight in an alley, fighting off several criminals. She found one girl carrying fake passports and ID cards, then, as the girl was arrested, bounded after Daredevil, who was watching from afar. White Tiger quickly realized he wasn't the same Daredevil, and she grew suspicious because Matt Murdock was incarcerated. Daredevil, who was using a voice box to speak and whose movements were familiar to White Tiger, accused her of dressing like a crook while a criminal force like the Chaeyi was getting away with international crime. He then bounded off. Del Toro met Coville for lunch, passing on a few of the documents to him so that he and Kathy, his ally from SHIELD, could trace the fingerprints. He believed that the criminal organization Chaeyi was behind the attack, and told her to contact the secret spy James Guerrero for leads and for work. Coville also identified the driver behind the attack as Cobra, a masked villain that Del Toro learned about. She later roughed up a man who was accosting another on the streets, and told the victim to spread the word that she wouldn't tolerate those actions anymore. When Del Toro returned home, she found a note from Daredevil about a costume he'd had designed for her at Potter's Costume Shop. Though she was hesitant, she showed up and found Black Widow (Natasha Romanova) there, and assumed Natasha was working with the new Daredevil. She met Li Ling Potter and tried on her new costume, deciding to keep it. She also bantered with the visiting Spider-Man before having lunch with Natasha, who encouraged Del Toro to do what she could against the Chaeyi. She tracked one of the Chaeyi, Eddie, to a garage and tried attacking him, but the Cobra attacked. White Tiger and Cobra traded several blows and she successfully evaded his venom. When Sano Orii called out to Cobra, who jumped in a car with Orii, Del Toro recognized Driver's murderer. Furious, she grabbed a crowbar and leapt on the car, breaking the window, but she was thrown off as Sano drove and a bullet grazed her shoulder.
(White Tiger#2) - When Eddie tried attacking her, White Tiger woke up and left him pinned to the wall, pulling down his pants to humiliating him. Daredevil soon met up with her and helped bandage her shoulder. She used gathered evidence to formulate a plan and still wondered why Daredevil seemed so familiar. Del Toro marveled that her shoulder was nearly healed by morning, and at her new costume, which didn't need to be laundered. She ran for her job interview with Guerrero, and, in costume, broke up a drug deal on the way. When she arrived, Guerrero impressed her with his knowledge of her actions and background. She was shocked to know his wife was the former supermodel Veronique (Niki). After Del Toro refused to share information on ongoing FBI cases, Guerrero hired her to lead a three man security team in guarding an NYU student that evening. Niki apologized for Guerrero's brusque behavior. Del Toro was assigned Mike and Randy to help her protect socialites Nora and Amy at a club. When Sano and Cobra entered the club, Del Toro got the girls out and athletically sparred with Sano before they left. She planned to hit clubs to find Sano again, and met Spider-Man (who gave her a donut before leaving) and Daredevil on the roofs. Daredevil slipped when he mentioned a detail about Angela's past, helping her narrow down who he really was. Daredevil joined her and they found Sano and some Yakuza men at a club. They fought them and demanded to know where he'd gotten his documents. Just as White Tiger was figuring out who Daredevil was based on his fighting moves, the NYPD surrounded the group.
(White Tiger#3) - Spider-Man helped White Tiger and Daredevil escape the police, who had phasers and were trying to arrest the heroes for violating the Super Human Registration Act. Spider-Man shocked White Tiger by revealing that he figured she was related to Hector Ayala, and Daredevil tried comforting Del Toro about leaving the scene of a crime, then both heroes departed. Del Toro tried visiting Murdock in prison, but he refused to see her, then she went off drinking with Natasha for a bit. That night, she stopped a car theft. She called her brother, Rey, who worked on the NYPD, and asked him for information on the Yakuza battle, and Rey agreed to gather information and get back to her at the house on Sunday. Angela caught up with Guererro, and met his daughter Peri and his information technology specialist Rayburn Frasier, before being assigned by Riki to wear other clothing than black on her future assignments. Del Toro continued working with Mike and Randy as security for Nora and Amy. Needing only two hours of sleep per night, she continued looking for Sano, Eddie, and other evidence, and fighting crime in her neighborhood. Outside Club Tokyo, she was attacked by Cobra, who wrapped himself around her and burned her shoulder with venom during their fight. She knocked him off a building, but he caught himself and ran off. The next morning, Angela joined her family for lunch and was accosted by various family members with questions about her life. She regretted not being able to tell her family about the amulets, but was excited to see Uncle Danny (Iron Fist) there. She caught up with Rey, who told her his friend Adam had responded to the call at the Genosha Club and there had been a mysterious cover-up. On her way to the zoo, she interrupted a Chaeyi gun-running operation, and had her picture taken by onlookers. Trevor Parsons put an article about how good she looked in the Daily Bugle.
(White Tiger#4) - White Tiger fought off the Lizard (Curt Connors), who attacked a woman downtown. The Lizard hit her with his tail and rain off. Hearing that Kenzo Orii, father of Yakuza member Sano Orii, would be flying into JFK, Coville and Del Toro wore disguises and watched them depart, listening to their conversation in Japanese (being fluent themselves). Del Toro then switched to White Tiger to help repel the attack of the terrorist group Normal America, aiding some unidentified super powers. She returned to work and found out that her assignment had been cancelled due to the girls' flunking out of school. Peri and Rayburn were marveling about White Tiger, and Del Toro learned she'd be receiving a new assignment to watch over Chinese scientists. Out of leads, Del Toro went to spar with Uncle Luke, and he questioned her about the missing White Tiger amulets. She confessed she was the new White Tiger and told him about the Chaeyi, and he told her to call him anytime. She later followed Eddie, who had been peeing in public, and Eddie ran, but his friend told her of a lead that Sano had an ally in the state department. He promised to tell her if he found out more information. She did some investigating and found the ally to be Jessup Pyne. She trailed Pyne for the next two days, briefly coming into contact with Emma Frost of the X-Men. Finally Pyne tried delivering more documents to Sano and Cobra. Sano killed Pyne as White Tiger attacked Cobra, then Sano ran for it with the documents. White Tiger threw dirt in Cobra's eyes as they fought, but he bit her, injecting poison into her veins that he said would kill her in minutes. The police arrived and they both fled. Del Toro placed the amulet directly on her wound and was overcome with memories of her life.
(White Tiger#5) - White Tiger fell on a roof for three days and blended into her surroundings, like a chameleon. She had visions of her Uncle Hector until Daredevil woke her up. Disoriented, she revealed that she had figured out he was Danny. She quickly returned home with him and showered and ate. She heard messages from Guererro and assumed she was fired, but Danny revealed he knew Guererro and that she'd be fine. She trailed Eddie and learned that he and Sano had a big heist planned that night, then was called in by Guererro. There, she assumed that Danny and Luke had told the Guererro's about her being White Tiger when the Guererro's knew her secret. They offered her a full time job and help against the Chaeyi, and she said she'd think about it. They also put her back on Nora and Amy's security detail. She yelled at Danny and Luke for betraying her, then stormed off. She followed Eddie to his pickup, where he received several guns from Cobra and Sano. She used her blending powers to hide on the top of the car and planned to question Eddie when Deadpool leapt on her, thinking she was the Black Cat. He soon left her alone, though she'd lost Eddie. The next morning, Kenzo Orii and his men came to her apartment. She drew her gun and demanded they drop theirs. Kenzo, using veiled threats and offers of money, asked if she would leave Sano alone, but she refused, stating that it wouldn't bring Driver back. Danny met her for lunch and promised that he didn't reveal her secret to the Guererro's. She believed him and he promised that he and Luke would help her against Sano that night. While walking near the harbor, Sano drew a gun on her, demanding to know what Kenzo had said. She flipped him to the ground, but he opened fire. Del Toro managed to deflect his shot with her laptop, then she jumped in the harbor to get away, but was attacked underwater by the Lizard.
(White Tiger#6) - She managed to escape by poling Lizard in the eye, then the police opened fire on him. She opened her still working computer while the cops questioned her, recognizing her connection to Rey and Marisol. She debriefed with family friend, Craig, and soon left on her way. Del Toro confirmed with Danny that he and a few allies were help her against the Yakuza that night, then asked Guererro about his dealings with the Chaeyi. He explained his history with Chaeyi and she took the job. Frasier and Peri bid her congratulations. Later, she met Power Man, Iron fist, Black Widow, and Spider-Man and, though nervous, told them about the planned attack on the Chaeyi, the Yakuza, and Eddie's gang. They watched the Chaeyi, Cobra, and the others approach and waited for the perfect attack time. After they took pictures of the criminal dealings, the heroes attacked the assembled criminals. White Tiger hit Cobra several times, but he managed to escape. She then fought several thugs and Sano, who fired on her and accidentally killed his father. Sano committed Hari Kari himself. Detective Craig came and collected the evidence, and Angela received copies of the evidence from Coville later.
(Daredevil II#113) - Returning from a patrol, White Tiger was attacked in her apartment by Lady Bullseye and the Hand. They killed her with a sword through the abdomen, promising her a new life.

(Daredevil II#115) - Murdock battled his former friends savagely until Iron Fist and Master Izo attacked. The battle spread across the home and Murdock rushed up the stairs, where Lady Bullseye attacked and determined Murdock was not yet ready. When Izo rushed off to kill her master Hirochi, Lady Bullseye ordered Black Tarantula and White Tiger to go after Izo. Iron Fist pursued them, but they knocked him unconscious and rushed off after Izo again instead of killing him. They found Hirochi with his hand severed and Izo gone. Both flew with Hirochi and Lady Bullseye to Spain for their secondary plan when the primary plan, to recruit Daredevil as leader of the Hand, failed due to Daredevil's refusal.
(Daredevil II#119 (fb) - BTS) - When the Owl hired the Hand to kill several criminal targets, White Tiger and Black Tarantula were among the Hand operatives who killed them at Lady Bullseye's orders. White Tiger commented on how Black Tarantula seemed to hesitate at the orders.
(Daredevil II#119) - Owl gave Lady Bullseye the next target, and White Tiger and Black Tarantula were sent to kill Foggy Nelson.
(Daredevil I#500) - Black Tarantula, White Tiger, and their Hand operatives approached Nelson in his office. Black Tarantula held Nelson off the roof, despite the Hand's protestations, and said he'd drop him to ensure a less violent death than the others. Black Tarantula then shockingly turned on the Hand, killing several operatives and successfully holding off White Tiger with a few blows. Black Tarantula then used his healing powers to restore White Tiger's right mind. The next day, White Tiger and Black Tarantula agreed to stand behind Matt Murdock as he took leadership of the Hand.
(Dark Reign: The List - Daredevil#1) - When Bullseye and a group of HAMMER soldiers attacked the Hand sanctum, where Daredevil had been undergoing various rituals, Black Tarantula, White Tiger, and the other Hand operatives leapt to defend themselves. Daredevil ordered his friends to secure the inner sanctum while he handled Bullseye himself. Bullseye, however, had set a trap for Daredevil and forced him to watch as he blew up a building, killing over a hundred peaceful protestors. Daredevil announced to the Hand that they had a war to fight.
(Daredevil I#501) - White Tiger and Black Tarantula stood by while Daredevil seemingly killed Izo in his final initiation to the Hand. They all bowed before him.
(Daredevil I#502) - White Tiger and Black Tarantula demanded an audience with Daredevil, who ordered the Hand guards to leave him. White Tiger furiously confronted him about Izo's death, and learned that Izo was alive, having controlled his own heartbeat, and that Black Tarantula already knew about it. Black Tarantula used his healing powers to pull Izo out of his coma, revealing this had been Izo's plan all along, and frustrating White Tiger for not being told. They later took to the streets and Daredevil learned about Osborn's efforts to control the police force. Daredevil soon led them, with the Hand, against a group of corrupt policemen.
(Daredevil I#503) - As they finished defeating the cops and criminals, Daredevil ordered the drugs there be put in the river and then struggled to decide how to handle the defeated foes. White Tiger, unsure of Daredevil's methods, grew more frustrated when, during a speech to the Hand, Daredevil said that no cops could be trusted. When he berated one ninja for disobeying orders, the ninja killed himself, surprising Daredevil.
(Daredevil I#504) - After another public battle with corrupt police, the Hand apprehended more prisoners and kept them on starvation rations in cages as Daredevil ordered. He ordered Black Tarantula to watch over things until Shadowland was completed, and told White Tiger she'd be accompanying him to Japan.
(Daredevil I#505) - On the Hand's private jet to Japan, Matt told Angela his plans to unite the problems among the five Daimyo, or regional leaders, and bring the Hand together as one powerful weapon. He made Angela Daimyo of the North American branch and asked for her help. They soon arrived in Japan, where they found the Daimyos: Takashi of Japan, Makoto of Eurasia, Yutaka of Africa, and Bakuto of South America, infighting. Daredevil, despite Bakuto's defiance (which nearly led to blows with Angela) gave a powerful speech that asserted his control over the group. Later, Daredevil met with the Daimyos and tried to convince them to move the Hand from assassination-for-hire to seeking justice. He defended White Tiger's appointment when the others questioned it. Soon, the brash Bakuto was beset by magic of some sort causing him to hallucinate, and Daredevil tried to intervene as they were surrounded by Hand assassins.
(Daredevil I#506) - When an attempt was made on Bakuto's life, and his guard was killed, Daredevil asked White Tiger what she knew, fairly sure it was an inside job. White Tiger stood by as Daredevil confronted the Hand. She later went in secret to the other three Daimyos, her eyes glowing red, telling them that Matt was easily manipulated and that he didn't suspect her at all.
(Daredevil I#507 (fb) - BTS) - In time, White Tiger's Hand conditioning reasserted itself into her brain. She was ordered by existing Daimyos of the Hand to keep a close watch on Daredevil, and to plant the idea for Shadowland in his mind.
(Daredevil I#507) - Calling White Tiger "Del Toro-kun", the three old ninjas ordered her to complete a mission, and cautioned her to keep her arrogance in check. She attacked Bakuto, slaughtering his men and then killing him directly, making it look like suicide. When Daredevil got there, he suspected that someone else was behind this plot, but White Tiger convinced him to turn away from his suspicions and focus instead on uniting the Hand. He agreed and they soon returned to New York. Matt announced his intention to make Black Tarantula the Daimyo of South America.
(Daredevil I#508) - White Tiger checked in with Daredevil, assuring him that the streets were secure. After expressing concern about Black Tarantula's ascendancy to Daimyo, she tried talking to Daredevil about his murder of Bullseye, but he was unwilling. When Foggy Nelson and Dakota North tried visiting Daredevil, White Tiger and the Hand turned them away, though she told Nelson that she'd tell Daredevil of the Kingpin's complicity in his problems.
(Daredevil I#509) - White Tiger reported to her allies in Japan about Daredevil's murder of Bullseye, and they predicted that he was lost now. She was ordered to hunt down Daredevil's friends and see them killed, and she assured them she had already started that.

(Shadowland: Daughters of the Shadow#2) - With information from a captured truck driver working for a slave ring White Tiger sent the Nail to capture the man, who was allegedly running the slave ring, politician Steven Shakes.
(Shadowland: Bullseye#1) - When the motorcycle gang Hell Riders and other criminals kidnapped Ben Urich, a priest and a few other people to force them to participate in a funeral for Bullseye, Daredevil led White Tiger and the Hand to save the civilians and capture the criminals. White Tiger revealed to Urich that Denny Deaver, who had fled the scene and had been dragged around by the Hell Riders along with Urich, was a psychopath (she didn't know he could actually talk to ghosts, including Bullseye's), who slew his doctor and three staff members when he broke out of Ravencroft. She calmed Urich down with the info that Deaver had already been cornered by the police a quarter mile away and they would arrest him if he didn't try anything stupid.
(Shadowland#2) - Though she was reluctant at first White Tiger allowed Iron Fist, Misty Knight, Luke Cage, Shang-Chi and Colleen Wing to enter Shadowland when they claimed to have reconsidered Daredevil's offer to join him. They and Spider-Man confronted Daredevil about his recent activities, including Bullseye's murder. White Tiger and Black Tarantula idly watched until Ghost Rider, controlled by Kingpin, attacked Shadowland's dungeon. Believing his former allies had something to do with the attack he ordered the Hand, White Tiger and Black Tarantula to take them dead or alive.
(Shadowland#3/Shadowland: Power Man#2) - Daredevil angrily announced his ban on killing was lifted, and ordered the Hand into battle against Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Colleen Wing, Iron Fist, and Misty Knight. During the fight, White Tiger was furious at Wing for tricking her.
(Shadowland#3) - Typhoid Mary joined Daredevil as Punisher joined the heroes, who swiftly escaped.

(Daredevil I#510) - As Black Tarantula struggled to contain the riots in the street, he was told by White Tiger that Daredevil had ordered the rioting citizens to be killed.

(Daredevil I#511/Shadowland#5) - When Foggy Nelson invaded Shadowland, White Tiger dragged him by the hair past the defeated heroes to Lord Daredevil, where she planned to execute him, but Daredevil wanted to execute him himself.
(Shadowland#5) - Master Izo knocked White Tiger out from behind. Izo planned to have a talk with her later to learn what she had done to Black Tarantula.
SECRET WARS III HAPPENED
(New Avengers IV#7) - Angela Del Toro was imprisoned at New York's super-penitentiary known as the Cellar. The Maker killed a guard and offered to free her, but she insisted that she only served the Hand and had no interest working with him. She changed her mind when he offered her a Tiger Amulet from another reality and the chance to kill her aunt Ava Ayala.
Angela confronted Ava at a cafe near the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Power Man tried to protect Ava, but when he tapped into the chi of the area he was poisoned by the Hand's influence in the area. The White Tigers fought each other in the Trevi Fountain and were evenly matched because both had the support of the Tiger God from a reality. Ava's Tiger God decided to merge with his alternate version and grant their combined powers to Angela because Ava had tried to suppress his savage nature and Angela was more willing to dish out the violence the Tiger God craved. This left Ava's Tiger Amulet powerless and Angela's imbued with twice the power a White Tiger ever possessed. White Tiger (Angela Del Toro) didn't kill Ava and just teleported away to W.H.I.S.P.E.R.'s hideout on Mount Everest. Arriving there Maker introduced her to her teammates in the New Revengers after she agreed to work with him because the Hand had signaled her and revealed that Maker's brand of chaos could benefit them.
(New Avengers IV#12) - The Maker promised the New Revengers that they were going to save the universe from itself and create a perfect world with the help of Roberto Da Costa's Advanced Idea Mechanics.
(New Avengers IV#13 - BTS) - Maker sent the New Revengers to the translocation bay to send them to Da Costa's Avengers Base Two for an attack.
(New Avengers IV#14) - White Tiger (Del Toro) attacked White Tiger (Ayala) in the dojo of Avengers Base Two. Del Toro threatened to kill Ava Ayala with a single hit because her amulet gave her twice the powers Ava ever possessed and Ava's was a useless piece of junk. Ava just told Angela that she still had to hit her.
(New Avengers IV#15) - Ava kept dodging Angela's attacks and revealed that her team baited the Maker to send Angela to them so they could save her. Ava managed to get hold of Angela's Tiger Amulet and crack it in two, severing the Tiger God's tie to Angela. Angela was finally free of all her possessions again (including the one by the Hand, which Ava suspected would happen after removing the possession by the merged Tiger Gods from two realities). Ava asked Angela if she could still fight and they joined forces to face off against the Maker, and Angela's former teammates Angar, Asti, Paibok and Vermin.
(New Avengers IV#16) - The White Tigers were joined by Cannonball, Doctor Positron, Hulkling, Power Man (Alvarez), Songbird, Squirrel Girl and Wiccan against the remaining New Revengers after the Maker fled the scene. It didn't need much of the White Tigers' help to defeat the villains. Shortly after the New Revengers were defeated John Garrett and a group of Dum-Dum Dugan LMDs attacked their base and Garrett shot Roberto Da Costa (actually Hulkling posing as him) in the head in front of his friends.
(New Avengers IV#17) - The White Tigers helped fight the Dugan LMDs controlled by Garrett until the latter lost control over them and was decapitated by one of the Dugans.
(New Avengers IV#18) - The White Tigers took down A.I.M. splinter group T.I.M. for Sunspot (Roberto Da Costa) in their undersea home base. During the fight they talked about their future as White Tigers. Ava decided to quit and suggested to Angela to do the same because they had lost their powers after banishing the Tiger God.
