S.H.I.E.L.D. PERSONNEL BRIEF: Madam Masque
Classification: Professional Criminal
Nationality: American (Dual Italian citizenship)
Distinguished Characteristics: As her name implies, Madame Masque wears a gold mask to hide the disfigurement she received while in conflict with Iron Man.
Known History: Despite her gender, Madame Masque’s father groomed her to assume control of the powerful Maggia crime family the Nefarias from an early age. Infiltrating Stark Industries under the guise of Whitney Frost, she began to romance Tony Stark but her true identity was ultimately revealed and her schemes foiled by his alter ego, Iron Man. When the aircraft Ms. Nefaria used to flee the Armored Avenger crashed and horribly scarred her for life, she adopted the guise of Madame Masque and swore to devote as much of the resources of the Nefaria Family as possible to destroying her former lover.
Observations: “Poor Giulietta. She wasn’t always crazy, and she wasn’t always scarred. That came from me. Not intentionally. I don’t wake up in the morning and think ‘Today I am going to drive some poor woman crazy.’
“Well, sometimes I do. But it’s a figure of speech.” — Tony Stark (Iron Man)
