History: (Avengers: Back to Basics#1) - Terrance was programmed as part of a virtual reality scenario resembling an actual past Avengers mission. In the scenario, Terrance was a student, known for telling tales, visiting Central Park as part of a class field trip to watch an impending solar eclipse who reported to Tony Stark on the disappearance of "Pepper" Potts. Explaining how Potts was there one minute than no longer there following Terrance's looking up at the eclipse, she was told to take three steps back by Stark and a confused Terrance did so, only to be surprised when Stark's remote-controlled Iron Man touched down. Stark then ordered Terrance to find the teacher and get everyone off of the Great Lawn. Soon finding the teacher, Terrance told her that Stark had told them to leave but the teacher questioned the truthfulness of Terrance's comments, reminding Terrance about how they had spoke before about Terrance's stories. Before any more could be said, however, Thor arrived on the scene and the teacher attempted to argue with Thor until the Hulk also arrived, prompting the teacher to order Terrance and her other students off the premises. As the students ran for safety, the Asgardian Fenris Wolf emerged from the ground. The virtual reality scenario involving Terrance and the Fenris Wolf was later viewed via a special Avengers virtual reality headset by Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan).

Comments: Created by Peter David and Brian Level.

Terrance was part of a virtual reality program meant to resemble a past Avengers mission and the scenario with Terrance was viewed by Ms. Marvel using a special Avengers VR headset. The scenario involving Terrance did not seem to match up with any actual Avengers story we had previously seen up to the point that Avengers: Back to Basics#1 was published so it's unclear if the Terrance construct is reflective of an actual student named Terrance in true reality or if she were simply created as part of a fictional virtual reality scenario. IF Terrance exists in the reality of Earth-616 in true physical form, it's unclear if she would look the same as her VR construct did, as several stories seen through Ms. Marvel's VR headset during the Back to Basics storyline did not reflect the actual costumes and looks of the "real life" -616 characters. For example, the scenario involving Terrance and the Fenris Wolf was said to be a mission that occurred way back in the past and we see Hulk, Thor and Iron Man as Avengers, suggesting the mission might've occurred during the earliest days after the Avengers' founding but the Thor and Iron Man VR constructs in the scenario are in their modern day costumes (Iron Man with heavy tech elements on his red & gold armor & Thor with his armored, post-Ragnarok resurrection costume that he wore in the early 2010s). With that in mind, IF there's a "real life," non-VR construct version of Terrance, she might not have looked the same as her VR construct.

Despite the traditionally male name of Terrance, Terrance was indeed a girl, as confirmed by the Thor virtual reality construct.

The "eye" color of the Terrance construct was impossible to determine, as she was never seen close enough to see the eyes as anything other than dots.
