Origins:
 
Francine Frye was a New Yorker who obsessed with super-villains as a form to escape from the real world. She was a regular accomplice of Electro.
While on the run after having his powers tampered with by Otto Octavius, Electro went to Francine's apartment for shelter. Even though he warned her of his malfunctioning powers, Francine tried to get intimate with Max, claiming that she simply couldn't help it. They eventually kissed, and Francine was accidentally fried.
After recovering genetic material from her corpse, the Jackal brought her back to life in the form of a clone, initially as an incentive to have the recently-depowerd Electro work with him. After a procedure that failed to give Electro his powers back, the suit that was meant to transfer its energy to him started to discharge into Francine. It was theorized by the Jackal that having used genetic material from Francine's cheek after she kissed Electro had mixed up her DNA.
Francine was pulled by the energy discharge of the suit, and she kissed Electro in order to grow in power. She ended up absorbing all of the suit's power, but accidentally fried Electro in the process. The Prowler, who had been sent to infiltrate the New U Headquarters, revealed himself while trying to save Electro and Francine was sent after him. She accidentally killed the Prowler during the chase, requiring the Jackal to bring him back to life. Frye was latter given an Electro costume and took Dillon's place in the Jackal's plan.
