Madeline Joyce, was one of High Evolutionary's first test subjects after an exiled Inhuman gave him the key to Inhuman genes. He later operated on Madeline after she was born but the results were non responsive. She was later returned to her family, with them completely unaware of what had transpired.
Years later, her uncle, a millionaire by profession, was financing electrical experiments of an unknown nature in a converted lighthouse on the East Coast of America. One night, Joyce was visiting the lighthouse during a violent electrical storm. She was caught in a powerful electrical discharge from the equipment triggered by the storm outside. Joyce miraculously survived the accident, but lay in a coma for a week. The discharge, however, activated her Artificial Inhuman abilities. During World War II, she was inspired by the heroics of Captain America and decided to use her abilities to help people, and later joined the Liberty Legion as Miss America.
