First Appearance: Daredevil II#111 (November, 2008)

Powers/Abilities: Lady Bullseye was personally trained in combat by Master Izo and the Hand, and she has mastered multiple forms of martial arts, emphasizing her speed, strength, and unerring accuracy while using swords, throwing needles, throwing stars, and other weapons against her foes. Lady Bullseye has mastered the ability to alter her heartrate and mask her scent in combat, fooling even Daredevil's senses at times.

For a time, Lady Bullseye developed superhuman abilities from Project Chrysallis, granting her the power to turn intangible and into a smoke-like substance, into which she could reform at will; she was badly wounded during a fight with Elektra but seems to be healed now, implying that the Chrysallis powers were temporary.

For a brief time, Lady Bullseye developed spider-powers, including sharp fangs, agility, and multiple eyes.

Height: 5'6"
Weight: 119 lbs.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black

History:
(Daredevil I#500 (fb) - BTS) - The girl who would become Lady Bullseye was put in a cage by the Hand and sold to the Yakuza.

(Daredevil II#111 (fb) - BTS) - The Yakuza placed her into human trafficking. She hated being touched when she didn't want to. Tortured, used and broken she was nearly driven insane.

(Daredevil II#111 (fb) - BTS) - In Tokyo, the girl was in a cage when she saw Bullseye move through the Yakuza, killing many. She managed to free herself then she killed a guard and ran to safety.

(Daredevil I#500 (fb) - BTS) - Master Izo secretly trained the girl, involving her in a long-term plot against the Hand. He promised that she would one day lead the Hand if she followed him.

(Daredevil II#112 (fb) - BTS) - In time, the girl joined the Hand, training as a ninja. She served under Lord Hirochi primarily.

(Daredevil II#112 (fb) ) - When the Avengers exposed Elektra, the leader of the Hand, as a Skrull, the girl watched over the following weeks the Hand break into competing factions. Hirochi summoned her.

(Daredevil II#112 (fb) - BTS) - After more training the woman chose a costume reminiscent of Bullseye's, and she chose the codename Lady Bullseye.

(Daredevil II#112 (fb) ) - Hirochi sent Lady Bullseye to New York City on a mission.

(Daredevil II#111 (fb) - BTS) - Lord Hirochi of the Hand sent Lady Bullseye to New York City to investigate four targets: Master Izo, Wolverine, Iron Fist, and Black Tarantula.

(Daredevil II#111) - After taking time to glory in New York City, Lady Bullseye stalked Matt Murdock and Dakota North outside Rand Corporation. In Central Park, she killed some muggers who shot at her, then she made sure a homeless man would tell the newspapers that Daredevil was a killer. After looking for her targets, she returned to Lord Hirochi and told him she'd found Iron Fist and Black Tarantula, but Master Izo and Wolverine were nowhere to be found.

(Daredevil II#112) - Lord Hirochi was furious with Lady Bullseye for framing Murdock. After apologizing, while prostrate on the ground, she smiled and stated that she would make sure Murdock was ready for the gift the Hand was prepared to give him.

   Lady Bullseye met with Hiro, who questioned her methods of accusing Daredevil of murder. They then watched from afar as Hand ninjas attacked Black Tarantula in his apartment, gauging his skills. Soon, they watched more ninjas face off against Iron Fist, but Lady Bullseye had a few of them killed before Iron Fist could question them.

(Daredevil II#113 - BTS) - Lady Bullseye beat the man she'd forced to act as a witness to death, causing the police to suspect Daredevil.

(Daredevil II#114 (fb) - BTS) - Lady Bullseye posed as attorney Maki Matsumoto and teamed with attorneys at Werner and Block, including David Roth. She convinced the parents of Milla Donovan to place their daughter (the blind wife of Daredevil, who had been driven mad by Mister Fear and placed in a mental institution) into their own custody, all in a plot to distract Murdock further. She also hired a private investigator to gather intel to work against Matt.

(Daredevil II#113) - Lady Bullseye revealed herself to Daredevil, and the two sparred briefly as she made promises that all aspects of Daredevil's life would soon be in control of the Hand. Master Izo intervened as the other Hand ninjas attacked, and Lady Bullseye fled. She soon showed up at the home of White Tiger, killing her.

(Daredevil II#114) - "Maki Matsumoto" and Milla Donovan's parents went to a meeting with Matt Murdock and his attorney, Foggy Nelson, presenting the custody papers for Milla, as well as a copy of old un-filed divorce papers and photos of Matt having sex with Dakota North, who walked in shortly after. When Hiro confronted Lady Bullseye about straying from Hirochi's plans, she killed Hiro. Meanwhile, White Tiger was resurrected in Hirochi's service, then she in turn killed and resurrected Black Tarantula, recruiting him as well. She then had White Tiger and Black Tarantula attack Matt Murdock directly.

(Daredevil II#115) - When Master Izo and Iron Fist got involved in the fight, Lady Bullseye attacked, but she realized that Daredevil wasn't yet ready for the gift from the Hand. Master Izo shocked her by rushing from the fight, revealing he was going after Lord Hirochi directly, and Lady Bullseye panicked, sending White Tiger and Black Tarantula after him, as Iron Fist rushed after them. Lady Bullseye then sparred with Daredevil, revealing that she'd been clearing away the people in his life so that he would embrace leading the Hand directly. Shocked, Daredevil refused the offer, so Lady Bullseye left him unconscious. She returned and found that Izo had severed Hirochi's hand. Lady Bullseye then accompanied Black Tarantula, White Tiger, and Lord Hirochi to Spain for their back-up plan.

(Daredevil II#116) - Lady Bullseye instructed the Hand to kill the civilian family of the Kingpin in Spain, including Marta, and her children Adriana, and Jaime. The Kingpin killed several Hand ninjas, but not before he was poisoned and paralyzed. Lady Bullseye revealed herself and told him that Daredevil was to blame for all this. She told him to go after Daredevil and tell him that Lady Bullseye had sent him.

(Dark Reign Files#1 - BTS) - Quasimodo wrote about Lady Bullseye in a report to Norman Osborn.

(Daredevil II#118) - Hearing that the Owl wanted to meet her, Lady Bullseye took Hand ninjas and ambushed him. The Owl, who was actually working for the Kingpin, said he wanted to hire her to take out his enemies, and she told him her services cost a fortune.

(Daredevil II#119 (fb) - BTS) - Lady Bullseye and the Hand targeted many of the Kingpin's foes, slaughtering them, including Alfredo Guerro, Max Sharp, and Miranda Lavender.

(Daredevil II#119) - On Kingpin's order Owl assigned Lady Bullseye to kill Foggy Nelson, and she eagerly sent Black Tarantula and White Tiger after him. She then revealed to Owl that she had had the men looking out for him killed, the ones had hidden on the periphery. Drawing a sword on the Owl, Lady Bullseye demanded that Owl take her to the Kingpin, whom Owl was obviously working for. Lady Bullseye met with Kingpin and told him that it was clear from the beginning that Owl was just used as a decoy by Kingpin. She then told Kingpin he had earned the respect of the Hand by deceiving them to do his dirty work for him. When she sensed Dakota North watching them Lady Bullseye tossed her hairpins into Dakota's arm, Owl then ambushed Dakota and knocked her out.

(Daredevil I#500) - Lady Bullseye took the Kingpin to the Hand, where he killed Hirochi for being the one to order the deaths of his loved ones in Spain. As Kingpin tried to claim leadership of the Hand, Master Izo and Daredevil burst in, and Daredevil swiftly defeated Lady Bullseye in combat. Daredevil agreed to become leader of the Hand if they promised to never do business with the Kingpin again, and cast Lady Bullseye out, and they agreed. Lady Bullseye sought out Izo on her own, saying she'd been lied to, and she vowed to find him one day and kill him.

(Dark Reign: The List - Daredevil#1) - Lady Bullseye put on a black ninja suit and watched Daredevil battle Bullseye. She returned to the Kingpin, telling him she thought Daredevil was dead, but she didn't see his corpse.

(Daredevil I#501) - The Kingpin appointed Lady Bullseye as his new lieutenant. She held a knife to Turk Barrett's throat as Kingpin confronted Turk about a betrayal, but Kingpin chose to let Turk go, causing Lady Bullseye to question Kingpin's judgment.

(Daredevil I#502) - At Kingpin's order, Lady Bullseye beheaded thug Dennison, who insulted Kingpin.

(Daredevil I#503) - While Lady Bullseye watched, the Kingpin confronted some of the Owl's thugs while realizing that Norman Osborn and H.A.M.M.E.R. were allowing the Hood to commit criminal acts on the street.

(Daredevil I#504) - Kingpin sent Lady Bullseye into the streets, where the Hand, led by Daredevil, was battling the forces of Norman Osborn, including H.A.M.M.E.R. and corrupt cops. Kingpin ordered her only to kill Osborn's men, but to be sure to get attention drawn to her. Lady Bullseye killed Collins and other H.A.M.M.E.R. agents.

(Black Widow IV#4 (fb) - BTS) - A man named Sumi (really Imus Champion) hired Lady Bullseye to attack Pepper Potts. He told her to give Black Widow a message when she came after her.

(Black Widow IV#2) - Lady Bullseye attacked Pepper Potts with a focused sound rifle, badly wounding her.

(Black Widow IV#4 (fb) - BTS) - Black Widow contacted Lady Bullseye, who tracked the heroine to a train in Paris.

(Black Widow IV#4) - Lady Bullseye revealed herself to Black Widow, saying that she considered giving up her life as an assassin to pursue one in law. To convince Lady Bullseye to give up Sumi's identity, Black Widow injected her with a paralytic and convinced her it was a fast-acting poison that only Widow had the antidote to. Widow left Lady Bullseye paralyzed on the train.

(Black Widow IV#5 - BTS) - Lady Bullseye was presumed dead and was buried alive at a cemetery. After dealing with Imus Champion Black Widow organized to have her dug up again.

(Black Widow IV#5) - Black Widow watched from afar as Lady Bullseye's grave was opened by firefighters under the supervision of the local police. The firefighters broke open her coffin after it was lifted from the grave with a crane and to the surprise of everyone Lady Bullseye was alive and well gasping for air as soon as they opened the coffin.

(Shadowland#1) - Lady Bullseye stood at Kingpin's side as he prepared his plans regarding Shadowland, Daredevil and the Hand's new stronghold in New York City.

(Shadowland#2 (fb) - BTS) - Lady Bullseye killed many of the Hand to steal a scroll that would allow Kingpin to control the Ghost Rider.

(Shadowland#2) - Lady Bullseye, in plainclothes, stood at Kingpin's side as he helped Iron Fist and Power Man realize that Daredevil was the villain. She soon gave Kingpin the scroll, and he summoned Ghost Rider.

(Shadowland: Ghost Rider#1) - When Ghost Rider (John Blaze) attacked the Kingpin's stronghold, Kingpin ordered Lady Bullseye to let him pass. Kingpin then convinced Ghost Rider to attack the Hand in Japan.

(Shadowland#3) - Lady Bullseye warned Kingpin that the Ghost Rider would come for him, but Kingpin predicted Ghost Rider would instead turn against Daredevil and the Hand.

(Shadowland#4) - From a roof Kingpin and Lady Bullseye watched the police of New York City overwhelmed by riots. She didn't care for Kingpin's believe that it would lead to a new order and only wanted to join the fight. Kingpin promised Lady Bullseye that she would have blood on her hands soon enough before inviting her to join him in his helicopter. From the helicopter Lady Bullseye saw the fires spreading from one building to the next and was sure the Kinpin would lose his building, but he was heading for a new base anyway--Shadowland.

(Shadowland#5) - Kingpin arrived at Shadowland with Lady Bullseye behind him and offered the Hand to lead them after Daredevil had failed them. Typhoid Mary opposed his offer at first until Kingpin reminded her that she was working for him all along. Lady Bullseye was surprised that Mary was Kingpin's spy within Shadowland. Kingpin entered Shadowland as the new leader of the Hand followed by Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary.

(Daredevil I#512) - Lady Bullseye joined Kingpin and his allies in an attack on the Hand's Jigoku-Chu Castle and offered them to turn on the Snakeroot and make him their leader. Lady Bullseye slew every Hand ninja opposing the Kingpin's claim of power.

(Heroic Age: Villains#1) - Steve Rogers wrote about Lady Bullseye in his assessment of villains.

(Daredevil III#27 (fb) - BTS) - Lady Bullseye took Bullseye's corpse to the Hand for resurrection. Bullseye realized he was paralyzed permanently and had to be placed in a containment unit for support. Bullseye put a long-term plot to take down Daredevil in place.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#524 (fb) - BTS) - When the spider-virus broke out in New York, Lady Bullseye was among those to get spider-related powers. After mutating she had sharp teeth and multiple eyes. She wore a mask to cover them.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#524) - Kingpin sent Lady Bullseye to fight the Black Panther (also spider-powered), who had been battling Overdrive, who'd taken a girl that Kingpin had kidnapped. Panther knocked Lady Bullseye into the river after a tough battle and rescued the girl.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#525 (fb) - BTS) - Kingpin sent Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary after the woman, K'Tano Chatarko, a Wakandan the Hand had failed to kill. Lady Bullseye rigged the hospital with explosives.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#525) - Lady Bullseye chased the Black Panther and Chatarko through the hospital, but they managed to escape the explosion. On the streets below, Typhoid Mary attacked Panther while Lady Bullseye took Chatarko hostage.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#526) - Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary fought Black Panther in the streets, but he managed to get Chatarko to safety.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#527) - Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary attacked Miyu, seeking to teach her her proper place, ordering her not to distract Kingpin any longer. Kingpin ordered Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary to continue their search for Chatarko. They sought out Chatarko and attacked, but discovered it was a dummy. Black Panther and Sofija fought back as Lady Bullseye called in the Hand, but then Luke Cage and Falcon joined the heroes. Lady Bullseye escaped, taking Typhoid Mary's unconscious form with her.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#528) - Lady Bullseye rushed in with Hand ninjas to come to Kingpin's aid against Black Panther, who escaped through a hole in the wall. She was standing next to Kingpin and listened to Miyu tell Kingpin how she was caught by surprise and drugged by Black Panther. She was still there when Kingpin received a call from his lawyer Mr. Madison, who was tasked to help Kingpin take over the Bank of Wakanda, but had actually already turned on Kingpin and was working for Black Panther.

(Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive#529) - When Black Panther, Luke Cage, and the Falcon attacked Shadowland directly, Kingpin continued confiding in Miyu as he ordered Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary to fight back against the heroes.

(X-Men III#25) - When a hit was put out on the vampire hero Raizo Kodo, a member of the Forgiven, several assassins showed up on a remote island in the South China Sea to kill him, including the Zapata Brothers, Bruiser, Lady Bullseye, Deadpool, Scorpion, Black Axe, and Marcus Fifolet of the Assassins Guild.

(Elektra III#7 (fb) - BTS) - After healing, Lady Bullseye realized the Chrysalis Protocol had given her the ability to turn intangible at will and then reform; while intangible, she took on a smoky appearance as she shifted through the air.

After the Hawkeyes hit the group with a flash arrow, the villains argued that Eden didn't control them; Eden blasted Crossfire back to the past, making the others believe she had killed him, in order to get them in line. They soon attacked the Hawkeyes with Eden's operatives.

Lady Bullseye has used the name Maki Matsumoto many times as an alias, and is often called that by her peers and foes. It is presumably her real name, but could easily be an alias as well.
