History:

(The Hood#4 (fb) - BTS) - At some point Dr. Elizabeth Bondi got a job as engineer at Stark Enterprises.

(The Hood#4) - After her husband Eric was shot in the neck by the Hood, Elizabeth was called by his precinct. Not knowing her husband had been cheating on her with his partner Brooke, Elizabeth rushed to hospital and was informed that he had already slippped into a coma and will probably never regain consciousness. Brooke comforted her.

(The Hood#5) - Elizabeth stayed in hospital with her husband, reading Jack London's White Fang to him.

(The Hood#6 - BTS) - Right after Eric passed away Elizabeth left hospital to build a battlesuit to hunt down Eric's murderer the Hood.

(The Hood#6) - While putting on her suit her concerned parents and Tony Stark called to talk about her husband's passing. Brooke called as well to tell her that the Hood recently shot was not the real Hood because the real deal was a man and not a woman. Donning the suit and dubbing herself White Fang Elizabeth vowed to avenge her husband's death.

White Fang's original outfit (Civil War: Battle Damage Report) - Tony Stark considered White Fang as a potential recruit for the Fifty State Initiative.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#2 (fb) - BTS) - White Fang undertook dozens of stakeouts to find the Hood, testing her armor and weaponry and finding out more of the Hood's criminal activities.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#1) - White Fang finally found the Hood and fired on him, smashing him through a window.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#2) - White Fang continued to batter at the Hood until the crimelord called upon Dormammu's aid and he crushed her gauntlets. The Hood was about to drop her out the window, but he resisted Dormammu's murderous calls and instead threw White Fang away and he disappeared. White Fang was angry at losing the Hood again and vowed further vengeance.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#3) - Back in her workshop in Brooklyn, Elizabeth Bondi tried unsuccessfully to reconstruct her gauntlets when she was approached by the Controller. Himself seeking to usurp the Hood's power, the Controller took Bondi back to his labs where he offered her upgraded armor and more lethal weapons in return for killing the Hood. He suggested waiting for the Hood to remove his cloak when he was with his family in order to overcome his magical powers.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#4) - White Fang watched nearby while the Hood played with his family. Later, when the Hood, Piledriver, Mr. Fear, Mandrill and Shocker were all pounding on Force and accompanying police, White Fang appeared after secretly gaining intel from the Controller and disabled the villains with her wrist-mounted sonic blasters.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#5) - White Fang menaced the Hood with an image of his girlfriend and child before continuing to smash at him in revenge, levitating them both magnetically. However, she was so consumed by rage that she did not see an approaching airline jet and was swept away, leaving the Hood behind and free to escape with his fellow criminals. White Fang returned to the area and helped Force up, the two forming an immediate bond. The two armored vigilantes left Scorcher beaten up to lure the Hood and his army into a confrontation. The two sides later met; his cloak destroyed by the Controller, the Hood called on Dormammu's power, using it to threaten Force's life in order to get White Fang to renounce her hunt to kill him.
