History: (Daredevil I#169 (fb) – BTS) – Dr. Gloss was assigned to treat Bullseye after he collapsed in a fight with Daredevil. She discovered that he had a massive tumor in his brain that was causing headaches and hallucinations.

She scheduled him for an emergency surgery but Bullseye managed to escape, killing several medical personnel and police on his way out.

(Daredevil I#169) – Dr. Gloss gave a report on Bullseye's condition to Daredevil and Lt. Nick Manolis, stating that Bullseye would die unless he got help soon. A report came in that Bullseye had been attacking civilians.

(Daredevil I#174 (fb) – BTS) – Dr. Gloss provided treatment for Matt Murdock after he was wounded in an explosion. Heather Glenn got updates from the doctor.
