Powers/Abilities: Diana was originally a human (see comments) warrior/explorer, utilizing Mys-Tech's technology to access other worlds via wormholes and to gather technology from those worlds.
She had psychic abilities, mostly along the lines of sensing energy patterns and/or clairvoyance and post- cognition, sensing past events.
She was experienced in navigating alien worlds and fighting alien forces with various blaster weapons.
As a Cyberdrone, her personality was briefly bonded with and subsumed by the Cyberdrones' Gestalt Bomb, which sought to assimilate other beings and races into the Cyberdrones. She further sought to unite the Cyberdrones' Activator with the Gestalt Bomb, which could then boost the group mind of the Cyberdrones one thousand fold and begin a program designed to enslave an entire world.
When the bonding was disrupted, she was able to resist its control, unlike her teammates. With effort, she was able to break the Cyberdrones' control over her and to escape the group mind, at least temporarily.Height: Unrevealed (approximately 5'9")
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1) - Seeking to further investigate wormhole and super string technology, Mys-Tech's Rathcoole sent Professor Daniel Jones and Warheads Bina Troop through a wormhole.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1 (fb) - BTS) - The creation of this wormhole apparently created (or maybe just accessed) a previously untapped pocket dimension/universe ("Elseplace").
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1) - Inside the Super string tunnel, Bina troop leader Col. Matt Travers told Jones that this was where they would leave him, and he asked Jones if he was sure that he did not want a weapon. At Travers query, Bina Troop's psi-scout, Diana, confirmed that they had traveled through these space-time corridors and seen things outside of them, following them: Mindless creatures, their purpose unknown. She further advised him that she sensed that his journey would not be as easy as he thought and that his love of science may be his undoing. Despite Diana's warnings, Jones remained certain he would be fine, and so the Warheads continued down the wormhole.
The Warheads traveled to a planet in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, a world devastated by Cyberdrones and on which the Gestalt Bomb had then based. Appearing amidst a number of hostile-looking robots, the Warheads swiftly took them out. Per Travers' request on her assessment, Diana noted that she sensed something that was incomplete but dangerous and which was blurring her senses; that place seemed to be full of voices of creatures that had died in agony. When Travers pressed her for specifics, with effort she determined that these Cyberdrones were guarding something called the "Primary Artefact," filled with thoughts of "The Seeding."
As one of the other Warheads identified recent seismic activity in this area (perhaps the unearthing of the Gestalt Bomb) and a weird power source under the rubble, another (Cornell?) noted an incoming fighter ship headed their way. After the Gestalt Bomb was discovered, of the Warheads told Travers that this could be something as he was getting a big "unknown" on his energy scanner. At his query, Diana told Travers that they would not be able to move the structure and make it home before the ship got there, as the wormhole would not open for another five minutes.
Accepting that they would have to face the ship, Travers had the troop assume "tempest position" and warned them that they had a fight on their hands. However, one of the Warheads sensed the item powering up, at which point it suddenly blasted Rogers, and Diana noted that the thing was absorbing his mind and taking him over. However, as the ship landed and more of the Cyberdrones approached, Diana, Travers, and the remaining Warheads were forced to ignore Rogers and instead engage the attackers.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#2 (fb) - BTS) - Diana made a holo-scan of the Gestalt-Bomb.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Gestalt Bomb and/or the approaching Cyberdrones converted the members of Warheads Bina Troop into Cyberdrones, who apparently joined other Cyberdrones in preceding the Gestalt Bomb into the space-time corridor once the wormhole opened (presumably to assure both items' safety?).
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Warheads were the Gestalt Bomb's first victims in centuries, and from their minds, it recognized Earth as an ideal target.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Gestalt Bomb (aka the "Primary Artefact") somehow bonded with the new Cyberdrone Matt Travers.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1) - A group Cyberdrones including the converted Warheads eventually arrived at the site of this Elseplace realm, outside of the "super string" dimensional corridor, which had been torn open via the corridor's destruction during a confrontation between Die-Cut and the now-gravity-powered Professor Jones (soon identified as G-Force).
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#2 (fb) - BTS) - The destruction of the corridor had delayed the Cyberdrones journey to Earth.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1) - Diana and the others flew behind Travers as he ordered their cooperation and noted that Earth would be the first target of the Seeding.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#2) - The Cyberdrones attacked Die-Cut and Jones, warning them that resistance was irrelevant and that they would be absorbed. After some struggle, Jones unleashed a burst of power to incapacitate the Cyberdrones.
This also allowed the Warheads' Diana to disrupt the Cyberdrones' control over her. After Jones recognized her as one of the Warheads he had previously been with, and she noted that they must destroy the Gestalt Bomb and that it must not reach Earth. Concentrating her powers, she broke the Cyberdrones' control and escaped the group mind, although she was uncertain how long this would last.
She then detailed the Cyberdrones' plans and threat of uniting the Activator with the Gestalt Bomb, noted how the Bomb had been buried deeply on an alien world but had recently re-activated. She further noted how the Gestalt-Bomb had recognized Earth as an ideal target from the Warheads' minds.
When the revived Travers/Activator revealed that they had only been delayed in reaching Earth and that there they would link the Gestalt Bomb with the Activator and transform all humanity into Cyberdrones, Diana denied Travers, refusing to be any part of that. The Activator noted its control and blasted Diana while insisting she stop resisting and join them.
Diana argued that she would rather die, at which point Travers/Activator slew her.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#1 - BTS) - In response, Die-Cut cut off Travers' arm, but another Cyberdrone quickly replaced it.
Ultimately, Die-Cut and G-Force transported the Warheads back to Earth, hoping that they would revert to their human natures away from the Cyberdrones' influence. G-Force subsequently sealed the pocket dimension and then apparently destroyed the Cyberdrones and the Gestalt Bomb.
(Die-Cut vs G-Force#2) - On Earth, however, the Activator-bonded/controlled Travers revived after Die-Cut's departure, vowing that the Cyberdrones would have their revenge, and then the Seeding would continue...
Comments: Created by John Freeman, John Royle, and Tim Perkins under the Marvel UK imprint.
The source of Diana's psychic abilities is unrevealed. She may have natural psychic sensitivities, or she may be a mutant...or perhaps technologically enhanced. Magical origins seem like likely, but we'll probably never know...
