History: Priscilla was a circus acrobat and trapeze artist along with her brother, Darrel. They were famous across the country and were beginning to gain some international notoriety when Darrel got distracted by a fan, and accidentally let her fall from the trapeze, rather than catching her. She broke the bones in both her feet and legs in the fall, crippling her. For a while, Priscilla was filled with bitterness after the “accident.” While in physical therapy, a woman identifying herself as Dr. Clinton promised to fix her legs and more. She injected Priscilla with the mysterious Compound X, which slowly restored and augmented her bones.
