Sonja was a warrior born in Hyrkania during the Hyborian Age. When she was 17 years old, her village was ransacked, her family slaughtered, and she was raped by bandits. Hearing the cries of the young Sonja, Scathach granted Sonja abilities so that she would never feel helpless again.
She has found herself in the modern era twice. Both times she possessed Mary Jane Watson after Mary Jane had laid her hands on Sonja's blade, and both times she teamed up with Spider-Man to defeat Kulan Gath.
