History:
(Incredible Hulk II#347 - (fb) - BTS) - Suzy entered a romantic relationship with Michael Berengetti, the owner of the ritzy Coliseum hotel/casino on the Las Vegas strip. She was often present at the Coliseum, and also became acquainted with Mr. Berengetti's chief enforcer, Mr. Fixit. Unbeknownst to Suzy or the general public (although known to Mr. Berengetti), Mr. Fixit was actually the Hulk (in his gray persona) at a time when the public thought the Hulk had died in the destruction of Middletown.

(Incredible Hulk II#347) - After hearing that Mr. Berengetti had confronted an armed and unhinged casino patron, Suzy came to his penthouse office and chastised him for putting himself needlessly in danger, insisting that taking such risks were Mr. Fixit's job. Mr. Berengetti mentioned to Suzy that Mr. Fixit had been in a bad mood recently. Aiming to cheer Mr. Fixit up, Suzy arranged for her friend Marlo Chandler to go on a date with Fixit.

   Later that evening, Mr. Berengetti and Suzy left the Coliseum together in Mr. Berengetti's car. As they did so, gangsters working for the criminal boss Anthony Gold steered the car off course and forced the couple toward the Carleton, a gutted hotel where Anthony Gold was waiting for them. While en route, Mr. Berengetti activated a homing beacon on his walking stick to alert Mr. Fixit. Once Suzy and Mr. Berengetti arrived at the Carleton, Anthony Gold confronted Mr. Berengetti for refusing to work with him. Mr. Berengetti attacked Anthony Gold, but soon found himself overwhelmed by Gold's gang. Moments later, Mr. Fixit arrived and quickly dispatched Anthony Gold and his men. Mr. Fixit spared Gold at Mr. Berengetti's instruction.

(Incredible Hulk II#351) - Suzy visited Marlo Chandler to give her a stuffed bear as a present while Marlo was recuperating from being injured by an earlier run in with the Warzone.

(Incredible Hulk II#351 (fb) - BTS) - During Fixit's prolonged absence (as the Hulk, during the Evolutionary War), Mike swore to Suzy he didn't know where Fixit was.

(Incredible Hulk II#353) - Suzy was dining with Mr. Berengetti at his house when the Maggia, trying to establish a criminal foothold in Las Vegas, bombed Mr. Berengetti's car. Suzy and Mr. Berengetti went outside after they heard the explosion, just in time for them to be spared as Mr. Berengetti's house blew up as well. Afterward, the two were interviewed at the police station, but declined police protection. Unsure of a safe place to go, Suzy let them into Marlo Chandler's apartment. Maggia hitmen soon followed, broke down the door to the apartment, and prepared to execute Suzy and Mr. Berengetti. At the last second, Mr. Fixit intervened and dispatched the Maggia hitmen with ease.

(Incredible Hulk II#354) - Mr. Fixit took Suzy and Mr. Berengetti to an out of town hotel to lay low. In the morning, Mr. Fixit turned back into Bruce Banner and left the hotel, leaving Suzy and Berengetti to assume that Fixit had abandoned them. The couple took a taxi back to Las Vegas. Later on, Suzy was at the Coliseum and heard about an ongoing fight between Mr. Fixit and a squad of Maggia enforcers with enhanced strength called the "Persuaders." People all over the city, including the Coliseum's patrons, feverishly placed bets on the outcome of the fight.

(Incredible Hulk II#359) - Mr. Fixit and Mr. Berengetti's parted ways.

(Incredible Hulk II#395 (fb) - BTS) - Suzy and Mr. Berengetti got married.

(Incredible Hulk II#395 (fb) - BTS) - Sam Striker, a gangster intent on establishing operations in Las Vegas, had his henchman Frost shoot and kill Mr. Berengetti.

(Incredible Hulk II#395) - Suzy attended Mr. Berengetti's funeral, returning afterward to the Coliseum. When she arrived, Sam Striker was waiting for her, and told her to hand over Mr. Berengetti's files, bank accounts, and other resources. The Hulk, now in his merged incarnation and leader of the Pantheon, arrived dressed as Mr. Fixit, and beat up most of Striker's goons before entering a standoff with Frost. Rather than deal with the Hulk, Striker and his men left the Coliseum. Afterward, the Hulk told Suzy the truth about "Mr. Fixit," and promised to bring in Mr. Berengetti's killers.

(Incredible Hulk II#397) - Suzy said goodbye to the Hulk and the Pantheon after they brought Sam Striker to justice for Mr. Berengetti's murder.

(Incredible Hulk II#418) - Suzy attended the wedding of Marlo Chandler and Rick Jones, helping Marlo get ready before the ceremony. (See comments)

(Incredible Hulk II#470 (fb) - BTS) - Marlo and Rick later experienced marital problems, and Marlo went back to Las Vegas to stay with Suzy.

(Incredible Hulk II#470) - When Bruce Banner went to Las Vegas as part of a misadventure involving the Circus of Crime, he called Suzy once he arrived. Suzy told him that Marlo was there, and Banner went to meet her.

Comments: Created by Peter David, Jeff Purves, and Mike Gustovich.

    Suzy's name was at times alternatively spelled "Suzi" or "Suzie." In her first appearance she was called "Suzy" so we're going with that.

    Suzy was not positively identified in Incredible Hulk II#418, but I believe that she is one of Marlo Chandler's friends who is with her as she prepares for her wedding.
