After a freak accident that caused her right eye socket to be shattered, Marie Evanson secluded herself in her parents' basement, away from the public. She had been living the rest of her life in self-denial, feeling that she can't bring any good to the world, doing nothing but trying to rebuild one of her failed experiments (planning to tear it down after). But one night, a falling star started to take her life in a different direction. Now she's created a new mindset: if she can't redeem herself, then she will try her best to be the most infamous person in the world. She now dons a golden mask, concealing her injured and deformed eye socket, and goes by the new name of Mai-Ra. Her new goal is to try and find a team of misfit bad guys, and take over the Earth first before other villains get a chance.
