(Dark Avengers I#10) - Arriving in Dinosaur, Colorado
as Veronica considered calling Scott to tell her she had left town,
Veronica and Betty decided to take a bathroom break at the Dino Burger
restaurant. Going inside, Veronica was told the bathroom was in the
back and that it was for paying customers. When Betty ordered two cups
of coffee, Veronica went on into the bathroom and phoned Scott, leaving
a voicemail that she had both left town and Scott. While leaving the
voicemail, Veronica noticed a crack in the wall and poked at it, soon
noticed her cellphone had become a glob of pink goo. Shocked, Veronica
backed into one of the stalls, causing the stall wall to bend inward
from her weight. Now outright terrified, Veronica soon noticed the
floor bending with her weight as well and she screamed, alerting Betty,
who noticed everyone in the restaurant had become gray in color as
Veronica and Betty's car disappeared with the wind. Two days after

Profile by Proto-Man.
Veronica Robbins has no known connections to:
Scott Goodman was a pre-med student at George
Washington University, where he dated Veronica Robbins. After Goodman
cheated on Robbins, she left him and traveled the country with her
roommate Betty. When Betty and Veronica arrived in Dinosaur, Colorado,
Veronica considered calling Scott to let him know she had left town but
Betty argued against it, reminding Veronica that Scott had cheated on
her. Once the duo went inside the Dino Burger for a bathroom break,
Veronica went to the bathroom and called Scott anyway, leaving him a
voicemail explaining that she both left town and him. The call to Scott
was cut off mid-voicemail, however, when Veronica's phone became a glob
of pink goo. The call was nonetheless later tracked by Osborn's HAMMER
agency to find Veronica's last known location.
