First Appearance: Iron Man #320(September,, 1995)

A duplicate of the original Whitney Frost aka Madame Masque, an Iron Man foe and occasional love interest. Masque's creation was brought on by the writer's attempts to explain why the original Madame Masque seemed to have died multiple times. It was revealed that the real Madame Masque was so paranoid that she had bio-synthetic duplicates of herself created to act on her behalf while she remained hidden and safe. This particular duplicate escaped before she could be fully imprinted with Whitney's personality and so she wandered the world, eventually settling in as an ally to the Avengers and a heroine for a short time before her death.


  • Action Girl: Just like the original.
  • Badass Normal: She fought alongside the Avengers and has no powers. Pretty much a requirement.
  • Back for the Dead: Showed up in two issues of Avengers (Vol. 3) only to try and convince the real Madame Masque to act heroically before dying.

  • Expendable Clone: What she was intended to be, but she escaped before she could be imprinted into believing she was the real Madame Masque. As such, she acted like a different person.
  • Femme Fatale: Again, like the original.
  • Hand Cannon: Carried firearms that fired "taser blasts."
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Gave her life trying to save the Avengers from Count Nefaria. Her sacrifice also inspired the real Madame Masque to take a stand against Nefaria too.
  • Holographic Disguise: Wears an image inducer that she used to appear as Bethany Cabe, as well as several of Tony Stark's other love interests.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Count Nefaria's laser vision. He believed her to be his daughter, the real Madame Masque.
  • Name's the Same: Excluding the real Madame Masque, there's also Masque, a Mutant and member of the Morlocks.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Had this going with the Black Widow, perhaps because the two were so similar.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Was brought around for a few issues, disappeared only to reappear for her death.
