Veronica Dultry’s past is relatively unknown up until her appearance as Dragonfly. She first came upon the scene among the second group of Ani-Men and was the only female. The Ani-Men were individuals that had been genetically altered by Maggia scientists. They had been given orders by none other than Count Nefaria. She and her teammates were meant to do battle with the X-Men. They would encounter them at NORAD in the Cheyanne Mountains, and fail in battle. After that, she later appeared as a member of the all girl team known as the Femazons and the Masters of Evil.
Recently, while working with the Crimson Cowl’s team, she confronts the Thunderbolts. She was taken down by Moonstone and remanded into custody.
Dragonfly was created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum in 1975 and first appeared in X-Men # 94.
Dragonfly and other super powered felons would escape from the Raft after a mystic hammer crashes into the prison facility. Steve Rogers informs Giant-Man of the situation and he teleports to Long island with Justice and Quicksilver to help recapture some of the hostiles at large. Dragonfly and Flying Tiger are swatted into a wall by Giant-Man during a brief fight and eventually detained once more.
