History:

(Nomad II#20 (fb) - BTS) - Carmella Roya became an emigre from Cuba, settling in Florida, USA. At some point, she achieved a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and developed an experimental prototype for NASA that, when hooked up to a plane's radar systems, could scramble radio frequencies. However, S.H.I.E.L.D. became interested in the project, intending to use it to disrupt Cuban communications in the event of a crisis, and hired members of the mercenary squad Six Pack (Domino, Grizzly, Kane plus Hammer) to steal it. Meanwhile, Roya herself questioned its usefulness, considering it may be better to sell it to drug-lords for free runs between Cuba and Florida, and hired Nomad to retrieve it, and he was successful.

(Nomad II#20) - At a casino rendezvous, Nomad passed the jamming device to Roya, but warned her of potential trouble after overcoming the Six Pack.

   Later, after the Six Pack convinced Nomad of the device's danger, they confronted Roya, who was about to pass the prototype for cash to a drug-lord. An explosive entry sent the device into Nomad's hands as Nick Fury arrived. Frustrated, Nomad smashed the device and told the angry Fury to have Roya build another one, then advised Roya to ignore both her chosen countries if she wanted to do right by them.
