Powers/Abilities: Alice's most recent form is green and tentacled, perhaps more piscene or at least aquatic. This form did not spread contagiously to others and allowed her to turn invisible

    Alice Michaels initially transformed into a giant green insect with sharp incisors and sharp-footed legs, and she spread her contagion accidentally to those around her, mutating them into similar creatures who could also mutate others.

    As the queen insect in this hive mind, Alice realized that she had to "die" in order to free the others from her unwilling control.

(A-Force II#9 (fb) - BTS) - Alice Michaels grew up in Ouray, Colorado, with her parents Janine and Albert. She worked as a tour guide in the mountains of Ouray in the summers. Under unrevealed circumstances, Alice woke up one day in the form of a monstrous bug. Panicking, she fled into the hills, only later realizing that she had accidentally spread her contagion to civilians who then spread it to others. Feeling helpless, she stayed in hiding, and realized she could only communicate telepathically with others. She tried asserting control over the other civilians, but this proved ineffective.

(A-Force II#8 (fb) - BTS) - As the contagion spread through the civilians of Ouray, Janine and Albert hid out in a safe house with many other civilians, including Anna. The Michaels hired Elsa Bloodstone to investigate.

(A-Force II#8 - BTS) - Elsa Bloodstone and Nico Minoru, who had a home in the area, battled their way through the mutated civilians. A-Force soon arrived to aid them.

(A-Force II#9) - Elsa, Captain Marvel, and Nico found Anna in a mine shaft above Ouray, and found Alice, who communicated with them telepathically about how she had been in hiding up there for weeks. Alice hinted that she wanted to be killed so the others could be freed, after which the others realized that Elsa had been mutated.

(A-Force II#10) - When the civilians at the safe house were mutated, Medusa, Dazzler, and Singularity joined their allies at the mine, only for all of the heroes except Nico to be transformed. Alice again said Nico would have to kill her, but Nico instead cast a spell to return Alice to her human form, thinking it would end the threat, but the others remained in bug forms. Given no choice, Nico cast a spell to kill Alice, who fell dead, and all of the transformed heroes and civilians shifted back into human form.

    Alice ended up hatching from a new cocoon as the others watched as a new insectoid woman. The heroes tried to detain Alice, but she simply walked away, turning herself invisible to avoid detection.

Nico's "killing" of Alice was one of the many futures predicted by Ulysses Cain as part of the Civil War II event. It was never made clear what the source of Alice's powers were.

Janine and Albert Michaels

(A-Force II#8 (fb) - BTS) - Janine Michaels hired Elsa Bloodstone to save Alice.

(A-Force II#8) - Elsa Bloodstone and Nico Minoru battled the mutated civilians, with Nico trapping many of them in honey with a spell, before returning to the safe house with saved civilians, where Albert and Janine checked their eyes before they entered, and Anna got a few more civilians to safety. Janine and Albert were frusrated that Elsa wasn't making more progress and that Alice hadn't been found yet. Then Captain Marvel and Medusa arrived to aid the others.

(A-Force II#9) - Dazzler and Singularity arrived, completing the roster of A-Force, and the women nearly got into a fight over tactics before Singularity calmed them all down.

(A-Force II#10 (fb) - BTS) - The members of the safe house mutated as well, spreading the contagion further.

(A-Force II#10 - BTS) - The Michaels were changed back when Alice was defeated.
