Powers/Abilities: She was a trained government field agent with vast leadership skills. She was an excellent marksman with the ability to dual wield handguns and small automatic weapons. Due to extensive burns she is now bound to a hospital bed and pretty much useless....until someone decides she is not useless anymore or she receives a grave at a nice cemetery. I heard Cypress Hills is beautiful!

History:

(Ghost Rider III#52/2 (fb) - BTS) - The government put Uno in charge of a team to take down Anton Hellgate. Michael Badilino was asked to join her team.

(Ghost Rider III#52/2) - In search for Anton Hellgate Uno led her government-sanctioned team into Hellgate's plutonium manufacturing factory compounds in Colorado's Rocky Mountains, but Vengeance had already taken out all opposition when they arrived. Uno attempted to arrest him, but he easily avoided it, riding away through a hail of bullets from Uno and her team. Uno ordered her men to tear the place apart to find a lead on Hellgate and to find Badilino, who had been absent during the fight (because he is Vengeance). She interrogated one of Hellgate's men until Badilino arrived. Uno berated Badilino, who told her that he had only joined her team because he was told to and that he was in charge of bringing down Hellgate.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#165/3) - Uno spoke at a law enforcment symposium in Washington DC. The symposium was attended by Rebecca Taylor, Michael Badilino and Sam Buchanan. Uno talked about the failing of the Magneto Protocols and a need to contain the superhuman threat. She cut her speech short when she was informed that the Pentagon City Mall was under attack by Psiphon though she passed on the info and that X-Factor was unavailable to deal with the threat, which in her opinion underscored her argument to found a new government-sanctioned team to deal with superhuman threats.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#166/3) - Uno watched Rebecca Taylor and Sam Buchanan from a helicopter when they fought Psiphon at the mall (Vengeance was present too, but she didn't like him at all). She told her pilot Boone to swing around so she could get a closer look.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#167/3 (fb) - BTS) - Uno was impressed and asked Taylor and Buchanan to join her Paranormal Law Enforcement Team along with Badilino.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#167/3) - During a gangwar between the Revengers and War Machines in Los Angeles, Uno led her team into action, but stayed behind in the helicopter herself while her team was taken down by the Revengers.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#168/3 - BTS) - Uno hovered above the fight scene inside the helicopter while Taylor waited for her evacuation signal.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#169/3 - BTS) - Uno still waited in the helicopter while Taylor and Buchanan found out that the Revengers were pumped full of drugs that enhanced their strength and durability. Taylor was going to inform Uno about this ASAP (and probably did so BTS).

(Marvel Comics Presents I#170/3 - BTS) - Most of Uno's team was still unconscious when she sent Taylor and others in for cleanup.

(Marvel Comics Presents#172/4 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller rampaged through San Francisco, California, executing anyone who remotely struck him as foolish in any way. Uno sent her agents Rebecca Taylor and Michael Badilino.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#174) - After Rebecca Taylor's death Uno and her team hunted Vengeance, who was believed to be responsible for Taylor's death. Uno and her team fought Vengeance on Times Square in New York City, but Vengeance escaped after killing a murderer. When Uno was informed that Vengeance was just seen in Los Angeles she couldn't believe it. She got mad when she was reminded that Buchanan was not present because he was searching for Badilino.
  Uno deduced Reverend Nice would be Vengeance's next target and hid with her team in the audience of Reverend Nice's Resurrection Pavilion in Oklahoma. When Vengeance arrived Uno and her team attacked him.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#175/2) - Uno and her team kept shooting at Vengeance while he slowly crawled towards Reverend Nice. They stopped firing when he got too close to Nice, who, fearing for his life, confessed that he had made a deal with Taylor's true murderer Diabolique to frame Vengeance. Uno arrested Reverend Nice after Vengeance disappeared into thin air (short explanation: Mike Clemson used machines to separate Vengeance from Badilino, but Buchanan and Doc Samson freed Badilino, who regained control over Vengeance and reunited with him....resulting in Vengeance's sudden disappearance at Nice's show.)

(Ghost Rider III#74 (fb) ) - Uno and her team, including Michael Badilino, found Hand ninjas, who had taken hostages, in a Queens building. They defeated the ninjas, but all hostages were dead, which angered Badilino so much that he turned into Vengeance in front of Uno, who didn't know until this point that he was Vengeance. He then burnt down the whole building in a fit of rage demanding more vengeance and not just penance.

(Ghost Rider III#74 (fb) - BTS) - Uno was found at the burnt down building and was brought to St. Jude Hospital's burn ward. After one month the hospital was still waiting for her dental records to return.

(Ghost Rider III#74) - Ski Sokolowski and Alec Maloni visited the hospital and were brought to Uno, who was still a Jane Doe to the hospital staff. Sokolowski knew Uno from the past and recognized her. Uno told him how Badilino turned into Vengeance and went nuts.

(Ghost Rider III#79 (fb) - BTS) - Uno was moved to the burn ward at the Lady of Mercy Hospital.

(Ghost Rider III#79) - Black Rose (Roxanne Simpson-Blaze under Blackheart's control) offered Uno to become the host of one of the Furies. Uno took the offer and became host to Lady Ash.

(Ghost Rider III#80) - Serving as Lady Ash's host she fought against Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, Jennifer Kale and Valkyrie. When Magdelena's spirit released the Furies from their mission for vengeance against Noble Kale (she called to them upon her death and Noble was the Spirit of Vengeance in the Dan Ketch version of Ghost Rider) Uno regained control over her body and quickly dropped to the ground.

(Ghost Rider III#81) - Uno was loaded into an ambulance.

Saved from being forgotten forever Uno ended up a burn victim. Its interesting to note IMHO that she was actually one of the good guys, but mostly fought "heroes" while doing good. Thaddeus Ross she ain't, but she was still a nice character and deserved her 15 minutes of fame and could easily turn up again as a Ghost Rider villain. Who am I kidding? She is gone and forgotten!
