(All-New Official Handboon of the Marvel Universe#4) - Beatta Dubiel was born in Wroclaw, Poland.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#48 - BTS, 49-50) - Bloodlust and Whiplash were part of Critical Mass' Band of Baddies. The Baddies forced the mutant daughter of the Captain to knock out Spider-Man and Wolverine, but they quickly recovered. The daughter than unleashed her powers, blew up the warehouse they were in, and defeated all of the Baddies.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#340, , 342, 343) - Employed by the Chameleon (who was posing as Dr. Turner), the Femme Fatales attacked the plane of the ambassador of a newly freed Baltic country. They did this in order to make him question his powers, so he would return to Turner for further studies. They destroyed the ambassador's plane, and then caused a major explosion that Spider-Man narrowly escaped (having already saved the ambassador, of course). Spider-Man, chock full of angst (as always), decided to have Turner remove his powers, so that he would no longer risk his life, so he could be with his family. Turner successfully removed his powers.
Turner then hired the Scorpion and the Tarantula and sent them to draw out the now powerless Spider-Man. Turner and his four female assistants (not to be confused with the Femme Fatales) quickly moved out of Turner's lab/apartment to escape Spider-Man's discovery. The powerless Spider-Man, assisted by the Black Cat, managed to fight off the Scorpion, and tagged him with a Spider-Tracer. Spidey and the Cat, using his old Tracer tracking device, traced the Scorpion (and the Femme Fatales, and Turner) to Turner's new base in the Botanical Gardens. Turner revealed himself to be the Chameleon, and the Black Cat broke in, hoping to cause a distraction so that Spidey could use the machine to regain his powers. The Black Cat accomplished her mission, but took quite a beating in the process. Spidey, back to his old self, rushed in and quickly fought off all seven of the villains, and destroyed the machine to prevent it from ever being used again. The Femme Fatales, and everyone else, escaped capture.
(Captain America I#387-388-BTS, 389-392, ) - All four of them were present on the S.S. Superia, and later Femizonia Island, after responding to Superia's invitation to join her army of Femizons. They participated in the initial capture of Captain America and Paladin when the two tried to sneak aboard the ship.
(Marvel Knights Spider-Man#6) - The Femme Fatales attended the auction in which the Venom symbiote was sold.
(All-New Official Handboon of the Marvel Universe#4) - In the aftermath of M-Day Bloodlust was depowered.
(Fantastic Four V#9) - In the Raft, She-Thing was the prison yard leader. She directed Ironclad, Armadillo, Bloodlust (who despite losing her powers looked still pretty feral), Man-Bull and Sandman to bring her new inmate, the Thing.
SECRET WARS II HAPPENED
(All-New, All-Different Avengers#8 (fb) - BTS) - At some point Bloodlust and Mindblast got imprisoned by S.H.I.E.L.D. in Pleasant Hill. Kobik transformed Bloodlust and Mindblast into duplicates of Maria Hill and told them to keep the Avengers away from Pleasant Hill.
(Uncanny Avengers III#7/All-New, All-Different Avengers#7) - Instead both of them posed as Maria Hill, leading individually with the help of Wrecker (for the Unity Squad) and inadvertently the confused Night Phantom (for the Avengers) the Avengers' Unity Squad (Brother Voodoo, Cable, Deadpool, Human Torch/Johnny Storm, Quicksilver, Rogue, Synapse) and the Avengers (Iron Man/Tony Stark, Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan, Nova/Sam Alexander, Spider-Man/Miles Morales, Thor/Jane Foster, Vision) back to Pleasant Hill. One of them shot from her jet with the Avengers on board at the Unity Squad with the other false Maria Hill on the ground, causing a fight between both teams. Kobik caught both teams, altered them and made them the newest residents of Pleasant Hill.
(All-New, All-Different Avengers#8) - When the villains in Pleasant Hill reverted to their true forms Bloodlust and Mindblast, still in Maria Hill's form, ran to the Avengers team, who had regained their memories as well. They revealed who they actually were and told them how Kobik had transformed them to keep the Avengers away. Before Bloodlust (still feral) could tell them the reason why Kobik wanted them to be kept away Kobik teleported the two villains away.
(Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Femme Fatales became employees of Madripoor crimelord Viper.
(Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Femme Fatales and Viper captured Magneto.
(Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor#1) - Lured to the King's Impresario Restaurant in Madripoor at 10 PM by Mindblast the X-Women were attacked by Viper and the Femme Fatales. Bloodlust slashed Domino with her push daggers, but she was saved by Kitty Pryde, who phased with Domino and Jubilee through the ground into the sewers to escape the Femme Fatales. Despite Pryde, Jubilee and Domino escaping into the sewers Viper still considered the Femme Fatales' assault a success because they had easily defeated half the team were facing.
(Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor#2) - Bloodlust served as bodyguard of Viper's mathematician Stenya Ubacowits, who was hired by her to plot flight trajectories for a satellite, Viper was supposed to launch for Soteira. While they were in a casino Bloodlust was knocked out by Domino and Jubilee while Kitty Pryde abducted Stenya.
(Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor#3) - Bloodlust attacked Domino while the latter watched agents of Soteira putting Rogue and Storm into a rocket first. When Magneto escaped and ripped apart the dungeon he knocked out Bloodlust, who was still fighting Domino, as well. She got back to her feet only to be knocked out by Domino again.
(Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor#4) - Bloodlust showed her resiliency and jumped at Psylocke, who easily hurled her away with telekinesis.

She was the Wolverine/Wild Child/Feral wannabe of the Femme Fatales.
Robert McKinney tells me the Femme Fatales are a parody/homage/whatever to DC's Female Furies, of whom there are five. I can see Knockout as Big Barda, Whiplash would be Lashina, and Bloodlust would be Mad Harriet. Mindblast is definitely not Stompa, so that would make her Bernadeth, who used a fahren-knife to barbecue her foes, from the inside out. The analogy kind of falls apart on that one, but the rest definitely fit pretty well.
