History:
(Irredeemable Ant-Man#9 (fb)) - At some point, Abigail Dunton had a son, Sam.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#8 (fb)) - Blessed with psychic abilities that allowed her to find victims in rubble, Abigail joined Damage Control. To prevent people from stalking her after she saved them, she adopted the codename Visioneer.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#7) - In the wake of a destructive battle between the Avengers and Mole Man's monsters, Visioneer and Damage Control showed up to clear the rubble; they witnessed the new Ant-Man, S.H.I.E.L.D. fugitive/terrible person Eric O'Grady, saving a girl from being crushed.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#8) - Visioneer stood by as Ant-Man introduced himself as "Slaying Mantis," and was offered a job by Lenny. The next day, she ran into him at Damage Control's offices, where he introduced himself as Derek Sullivan. They bantered a little about his inexplicably red costume, and she agreed to go out on a date with him. They went to a coffee shop, where "Sullivan" found her caustic, brutally honest personality very attractive. He took her back to his apartment, and they started to make out on his couch before being interrupted by a battle between She-Hulk and Mister Hyde outside. After some prodding from Abigail, he went to help out. After taking a punch from Hyde, he tapped out and returned to his apartment, where a hug from Abigail let him know he'd suffered a number of injuries. She took him to the hospital. Later that night, she broke into his apartment to surprise him; the two of them had sex, and he admitted that he was falling in love with her.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#9) - Visoneer, Monstro, and Slaying Mantis battled Dragon Man when he awoke after a battle with Cloak and Dagger. Mantis saved her after Dragon Man flung Monstro towards her, and eventually the trio defeated the rampaging android. Later, Visioneer noticed that Mantis was avoiding the S.H.I.E.L.D. cleanup team; he explained that an ex-girlfriend was in S.H.I.E.L.D., which was partially true. Later, at Damage Control's headquarters, the three of them had to register their powers and identities under the Superhuman Registration Act. A couple nights later, they went to a play (which Eric slept through), and then went to Abigail's house for the first time, where she showed him her sleeping son. She apologized for hiding the truth from him the past few weeks, but he reacted with furious anger, and stormed out, waking up her son with his shouting.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#10) - Later, while clearing rubble, Visioneer noted again that Slaying Mantis was hiding from S.H.I.E.L.D.; he reacted angrily, again, and she confronted him with the knowledge that he was still in love with her. Their confrontation was interrupted by the arrival of the Hulk's stone spaceship in New York City, and his demand to have the Illuminati brought to him. Deciding that her powers were no match for this, Abigail took off to get her son and get out of the city. Later, she was evacuating with the rest of the citizenry; a panicking man almost bowled her over, but he was felled by an unseen assailant - who Abigail quickly realized was Mantis.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#12 (fb)) - Monstro told Abigail that Derek had been caught in a fight between Iron Man and the Hulk.

(World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control#1) - In the aftermath of the Hulk's attack on Manhattan, Visioneer, Monstro, and the rest of Damage Control prepared to get to work - along with most of the super heroes in the city, who volunteered to assist. However, they were hampered by the arrival of the Thunderbolts, who demanded that everyone in attendance produce their registration.

(World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control#2) - Eventually, the Thunderbolts were dealt with, and Damage Control went to work. Visioneer and Monstro scouted a ruined warehouse - although her powers couldn't detect anyone inside, Monstro was sure he saw something - but the building collapsed on him. Visioneer summoned Goliath to save him, and did so - and found that Monstro had saved the damaged robot Arch-E-5912. The next day, Visioneer, Monstro, and several other heroes confronted the Chrysler Building, which had come to life!

(World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control#3) - Visioneer suggested to DC foreman Lenny Ballinger that they should try talking to the building - and later, that they should find out what it wanted.

(Irredeemable Ant-Man#12) - Abigail came home from work and found Derek there. She was relieved that he was alive, but disappointed when he told her that he had to go away for a while - for both super hero training and to try and make himself become a better person for her. She told him that he had a year to come back, because it would take that long for her to get over him, anyway. He told her his real name for the first time, and left.

(Ant-Man & Wasp I#1) - Abigail dropped by O'Grady's apartment, where he greeted her warmly, and told her that he'd become an Avenger. However, she quickly discovered that while he was becoming a better super hero, he was still the same terrible person, as she found women's underwear in his bed. She stormed out, disappointed.

(Ant-Man & Wasp I#3) - Abigail came to visit Eric, who was volunteering at the Janet Van Dyne Center for Women. She found a slip of paper with his number on it in a woman's room there, however, and angrily confronted him over it.

Comments: Created by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker.

Eric has since died and been reborn as the villainous LMD Black Ant; what effect this had on his relationship with Abigail is unknown.
