(Daredevil I#211 (fb) - BTS) - A self-interested and cynical actress, Heidi DeVoto moved to New York City to pursue her career. After several years of auditions and failing to get parts, she agreed to accept an assignment from the Kingpin, using makeup and a wig to pose as Kingpin's wife Vanessa Fisk. She knew the job would be very dangerous, but he offered her twenty thousand dollars per week, and she gladly accepted. She recorded a video message to be played if she was ever harmed while working; she instructed that it be sent to Kansas.

(Daredevil I#211) - As Vanessa, Heidi was kidnapped off the streets by the Kingorge tribe, and taken to the home of Micah Synn. There, she was placed in front of a large idol of the god Mow, on the floor next to Becky Blake, who was paralyzed from the waist down. Both women were tied up and as the Kingorge chanted, a spiked platform was slowly lowered by the Vikah that would crush both women to death. Daredevil entered (after bypassing cop Jonesy as Matt Murdock) and plunged the room into darkness. He told "Vanessa" to rush to safety, saying he could save Becky, but when Daredevil was overwhelmed, Heidi rushed back to aid her, pulling her toward the elevator. Heidi got Becky on board, saving her, but then the Vikah threw a spear, hitting Heidi in the back and killing her. Kingpin intercepted her pre-recorded tape.

(Daredevil I#212) - The Vikah and Micah prepared to get rid of Heidi's body.
