Fancy Dancer of Earth-57780 has no known connections to:
Tip Toe Tulip
Tip Toe Tulip was a renown ballet dancer. Assigned to
interview her, Carol Danvers and Peter Parker watched her stage
performance, but when Fancy Dancer kidnapped her for ransom in front of
audience, Danvers and Parker changed into their secret superhero

Spider-Man knocked her kidnapper into a fountain.
