Real Name: Yekaterina (last name unrevealed)
Identity/Class: Human mutant (Ukrainian)
Group Membership: None
Affiliations: Aleksandr, Electro (Max Dillon), Fedora
Known Relatives: Unnamed mother
Base of Operations: A nightclub/brothel in New York
First Appearance: Marvel Knights Spider-Man#2 (July, 2004)
Powers/Abilities: Yekaterina can shapeshift into a variety of human and humanoid forms. Whether she can alter her size or mass, take on non-humanoid forms, or duplicate superhuman powers is unknown.
History: (Marvel Knights Spider-Man#2 (fb) ) - A mutant from the Ukrainian province of Chernobyl, Yekaterina came to live in New York, where she worked as a prostitute. The supervillain Electro became one of her favorite clients. Her mother came to live with her for a few months, but when she heard that Electro was in town she came into work to see him.
(Marvel Knights Spider-Man#2) - Yekaterina greeted Dillon enthusiastically (much to the disgust of his partner, the Vulture, who likened her to Boris Yeltsin), and assumed the forms of the Invisible Woman, the Scarlet Witch, and Marrina en route to the boudoir. When Dillon mentioned that he'd discovered a "new side" of himself, she suggested that she take the form of an X-Man, or maybe Fin Fang Foom. Before Electro could answer, the two were confronted by Spider-Man.
(Marvel Knights Spider-Man#3) - Yekaterina fled while Electro and Spider-Man battled.
Comments: Created by Mark Millar, Terry Dodson, & Rachel Dodson.
Although it's not mentioned outright, Yekaterina's powers presumably stem from the Chernobyl accident of 1986. If Yekaterina is a mutant and not a mutate, she can't be any older than eighteen, as this story was published in 2004.
