History: (Hulk IV#3 (fb) - BTS) - Maise Brewn was a yoga instructor at Peaceful Sanctuary Yoga Studio and she hosted a podcast on wellness while regularly volunteering in community programs. She and Ray Hutchinson co-owned the yoga studio. Ray wanted to sell the business and hired men to kill Maise.

(Hulk IV#4 (fb)) - Maise left her yoga class but was pursued by men dressed in black, who cornered her in an alley and badly beat her, leaving her for dead.

(Hulk IV#3 (fb) - BTS) - Maise was badly wounded and hospitalized for three months and Ray was soon arrested.

(Hulk IV#5 (fb) - BTS) - Maise underwent Terrigenesis, developing the ability to summon shadowy creatures who served as her protectors and who could combine into a larger form. During times of distress, the creature would grow more massive in size and send out tendrils to the world around her, committing acts of violence or even finding other civilians to infect and control.

(Hulk IV#1 (fb) - BTS) - Maise worked with the law offices of Ryu, Barber, Zucker and Scott, who helped to handle her legal affairs, with attorney Fred being appointed directly to help her. After her transformation, Maise didn't leave her house ever but when her landlord Mr. Tick, who regularly cashed her checks while claiming she wasn't paying her rent, threatened to evict her, Maise realized she needed help.

(Hulk IV#1) - Brewn went to the law offices and waited in the dark of Jennifer Walters' office until Walters entered. Brewn scared Walters at first then explained why she needed help, showing all the bank statements that showed she had paid her rent in the past. Maise then rushed out, saying she had to be home before dark. As she rushed away, Maise asked Walters to promise that she'd save her home but Walters only promised to do her very best. Back at her apartment, Maise sought assurance in the darkness that she would be okay and the darkness promised she would.

(Hulk IV#2) - When Tick pounded on Maise's door, she called Walters for help but Walters was unavailable. That night, a shadowy monster hunted down Tick and killed him.

(Hulk IV#3) - The police (including Stewart and Maxwell) came to question Maise about Tick's death and she answered their questions through the door. She collapsed in her apartment, crying out to be protected. As the police left, they were attacked by the shadows.

(Hulk IV#4) - Maise woke up and asked the shadow if it would keep protecting her. Later, Walters visited Maise and found her apartment and building in squalor. When Walters informed Maise that the apartment building had been sold by Tick months before, Maise panicked and released the monster inside her.

(Hulk IV#5) - As Walters fled down the hall and up to the roof, Maise pursued her with her monster. Maise spread her control outward, taking over the forms of civilians, then formed her monsters into one massive giant. As they attacked, Walters changed into her Hulk form.

(Hulk IV#6) - The shadow giant formed a shield over Hulk and sought to feed on her but she broke free, dispersing the creature. Maise screamed at Hulk for disrupting her safety then tried to kill herself by setting off a fiery explosion but Hulk grabbed her and rushed free, saving Maise's life as the building exploded behind her. Maise was arrested for reckless endangerment after being treated for minor injuries. Her fear creature remained free.
