Lucia von Bardas is a Latverian woman who used to teach at the University of North Carolina in the United States. After Victor von Doom was deposed as the leader of Latveria, the Americans helped von Bardas get elected as the Prime Minister of Latveria. She then began publicly mending the ties between the two countries.
In truth, however, von Bardas was secretly funding American technology-based super criminals through the Tinkerer. S.H.I.E.L.D. found out about this, but the President didnít take measures that Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. had suggested, believing that they could handle the situation diplomatically. In a panic, Fury gathered a group of heroes for an undercover mission to overthrow the Latverian government and assassinate von Bardas. When Fury reached von Bardas, he gave the signal for S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Daisy Johnson used her seismic powers to take down Castle Doom, apparently killing von Bardas.
Nevertheless, von Bardas survived, but was made into a deformed cyborg.
