her father died of an aneurysm on the way back from a family camping trip, Sue's
mother married scientist Roger Nero. Nero was searching for the genetic key to
release innate megapowers in humans, and began experimenting on the teenaged
Sue, her brother Carl, and Nero's daughter Darcy in his basement laboratory.
After a few years of tests, Nero unlocked Sue's powers of atomic fire, which
unfortunately set the lab and house ablaze. Sue's mother perished in the fire,
and the bodies of Nero, Carl and Darcy were never found. Sue was taken in by
family friend and millionairess Darlene Stenbaum.
After college, Sue married
Nick Buso, a man she had met there. Buso eventually became physically abusive,
and Sue finally used her fire powers to threaten him and drive him off. After
their divorce, Stenbaum gave Sue a job as Stenbaum's personal assistant. During
a battle at one of Stenbaum's construction sites between Captain
Defender, Pixie, Blackrock,
Lavender Valentine, and Shatter, Sue used her powers to help drive
off the villains. She was invited to join the Keepers, and decided to do so as
the death of her family, Sue placed great blame on herself as the cause of their
demise. She has low self-esteem, but is learning that being a hero and helping
people makes her feel better about herself. She is greatly indebted to and protective
of Mrs. Stenbaum and Stenbaum's granddaughter, Jaime.
