Powers/Abilities: Sarah obtained the Terrible Eye, a mystic artifact that allows its wearer to glimpse other realities as well as granting a greater awareness of magic and possibilities, and she began wearing it regularly, causing those around her to sometimes think her mad. When Sarah takes off the Terrible Eye, she maintains memories of the things that she saw, but those memories diminish the longer the headpiece is off. Sarah is also a minor mystic, able to cast various spells, though the extent of her training is unrevealed. She has been shown to cast spells that create illusions, find mystic artifacts, to make a magic weed killer, and to open mystic doorways. She had access to the technology of M.O.D.O.K. and his mercenary group for a time.

(Unbelievable Gwenpool#8 (fb) - BTS) - Sarah was always fascinated by magic and what possibilities existed in the multiverse. Under unknown circumstances, she obtained "the Terrible Eye", an artifact/headpiece with multiple eyes on it, that, when worn, granted her a "greater awareness" of magic and possibility. She began calling herself the Terrible Eye. She realized that she needed to take off the headpiece from time to time to maintain her sanity, but that if she left it off too long she ended up forgetting her new mystic knowledge. Others saw her acting bizarre around them as she could see things they couldn't.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Terrible Eye spent time studying mystic arcana and she often wondered what happened after death, fearing insanity or disaster for human souls.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#2 (fb) - BTS) - Terrible Eye was recruited by M.O.D.O.K. to join his team of agents in the organization M.O.D.O.K. (Mercenary Organization Dedicated Only to Killing), alongside Batroc the Leaper, Mega Tony, and Gwenpool. The others thought her mad as she ranted about magic and reality.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#8 (fb) - BTS) - Terrible Eye set up a room on M.O.D.O.K.'s ship with magical artifacts. She hung a sign outside warning muggles to keep out.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#2) - M.O.D.O.K. assigned the team go after the druid, the Seed of Pains, and Terrible Eye cast a spell to cause the vehicle he was being transported in to malfunction. After the car crashed, the mercenaries took the Seed of Pains away in a stolen cop car and used a shot to block his powers. Just then, Thor (Jane Foster) attacked, attempting to recruit Seed of Pains, and Terrible Eye hit the heroine with an explosive spell before Thor knocked her out with a hammer blow. Thor stated that she needed the druid to save some elves, but Gwenpool killed Seed of Pains. Terrible Eye and Mega Tony, however, crafted a magic weed killer that would help Thor complete her mission, so she departed peacefully.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#3) - Terrible Eye lectured a rock about speaking up for its own feelings, baffling the others.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#4) - M.O.D.O.K. assigned his agents to kill a group of rogue Atlanteans, and Terrible Eye offered everyone a snack of enchanted fish lungs as they prepared for the mission. Later, the others walked in to find that Gwen had thrown M.O.D.O.K. into space, claiming he'd attacked her. She took control of the mercenary team, and introduced them to their new member, Cecil, a ghost.
(Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mix Up#1/1) - Gwen met with Terrible Eye and the other mercenaries and they discussed the holidays of Pantsgiving and the Winter Solstice.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#5) - Gwen agreed to represent the team with a new benefactor, but Terrible Eye just assumed that M.O.D.O.K. would be coming back. Later, the benefactor called to say Gwen had never made it to the meeting, concerning Terrible Eye and the others.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#7 (fb) - BTS) - When the Teuthidan (a squid-like alien race) declared war on Gwen and her team, Terrible Eye and the mercenaries moved their headquarters into hiding.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#7) - Terrible Eye and the others waited in hiding. When Cecil returned, Terrible Eye questioned him about death, and she was relieved to hear that he experienced nothing after dying.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#8) - Sarah questioned Cecil about being a ghost, and Gwen entered, seeing Sarah without her headpiece for the first time, and Sarah explained a bit about how it worked. Gwen assembled the team, telling them their benefactor had ordered them to eliminate the Teuthidan, and Gwen proposed a complex plan to do so, one that would require Terrible Eye to conjure a massive illusion of a crime spree. Terrible Eye worried about the cost of such a spell.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#9 (fb) - BTS) - The Teuthidans captured Terrible Eye, Batroc the Leaper, and Mega Tony and put them in bonds near a captured small pig that Gwen had dressed in her own costume. Sarah's headpiece was removed.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#9) - Sarah began to worry about having the headpiece off for so long, realizing she was losing her connection to the "planes beyond".
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#10) - At the home of Bill and Samantha Cooper, Terrible Eye and the others remained captive as Gwen and Cecil arrived in M.O.D.O.K.'s ship. A rogue Doombot, Vincent Doonan (revealed as their former benefactor), tried stopping Gwen from killing the Teuthidans, as the aliens threatened to kill their captives, but Gwen countered by attacking with the Poole Boys, a group of hired male mercenaries all wearing her costume. In the end, the Teuthidans were destroyed by Doonan, and M.O.D.O.K.'s ship was destroyed. The mercenary team disbanded, and Terrible Eye wandered away, saying the winds were calling.
(Unbeatable Gwenpool#13 (fb) - BTS) - Sarah was accepted into the School of Witchcraft at NYU.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#12 (fb) - BTS) - Sarah (not wearing her head piece) and Batroc were hired for a mission.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#12) - Sarah and Batroc were captured when they turned up for the assignment and soon ran into Gwen and Mega Tony there as well. They followed a voice to a robot, looking like a little old man, who provided them with cryptic exposition, but Gwen lopped the head off the robot before an image of a ghost warned them they were in a deadly maze, and Gwen swiftly exposed their captor as Arcade. Arcade provided them all with costumes and ordered them to enter his dungeon or die, and Sarah dressed as a witch and put on her own headpiece (which Arcade had provided for her), and she carried a lighted staff to focus her powers. When frog warriors attacked, Terrible Eye cast a spell to dissipate them while the others protected her. The frogs were seemingly guarding a door with "Beast" written on it. Mega Tony opened the door, which revealed the the unkillable monster of the dungeon everyone feared was Deadpool.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#13) - Gwen took leadership of the team and orchestrated a fight against Deadpool, who she saw as the "dungeon boss", and Terrible Eye cast a spell to set fire to Deadpool and prepared another spell that would paralyze him, though she didn't use it. Deadpool beat Gwen and the others before Gwen convinced him that the actual villain of the story was Arcade and they teamed up to take him down together. Terrible Eye and Batroc accompanied Gwen when she got Mega Tony a job at Parker Industries. Sarah told the others about her plans for school.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#14) - Gwen brought Cecil over to Sarah's apartment, which was decorated with magic arcana. Gwen asked for help with a spell that would allow Cecil to turn solid at will, and Sarah said she couldn't help, but she did cast a divination spell that pointed them toward an artifact that could help Cecil. Although unable to give them much intel, Sarah could tell that the artifact would not be available for long. Though she couldn't tell them where it was, she could open a doorway to get them there, and Cecil and Gwen eagerly jumped through before Sarah had a chance to warn them that the devil was powering the device somehow.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#20) - Gwen sought out Sarah during a moment of crisis, confronting her own origins in another dimension, and they watched over Ted and Martha Poole, this reality's version of Gwen's parents. Though her powers were weakened without her headpiece, Sarah cast a spell to summon Spider-Man (Miles Morales) for Gwen.
(Unbelievable Gwenpool#25) - When Cecil got trapped in the form of a demonic dog, Terrible Eye joined Doctor Strange, Vincent Doonan, and Iron Man (Victor Von Doom) in casting a spell that would free him from the form, and Sarah made sure to emphasize as part of the spell that he would remain friends with the dog, which was shrunk to a smaller size. Later, Terrible Eye was hanging with Gwen, Batroc, and the other former mercenaries, and they all saw the pig dressed like Gwen, now named Pig-Gwen. When M.O.D.O.K. arrived back on Earth, he chose not to fight them after seeing the Poole Boys.
(Gwenpool Strikes Back#3) - When Gwenpool used her reality-manipulating powers to bring many heroes to an island in an attempt to prove her relevance, Terrible Eye and the other mercenaries from Gwen's former team were also summoned, and they ate snacks while events played out.
