Madame Macabre is a mysterious female with the ability to manipulate the size of certain objects fashioned by her lackey Gogo. Madame Macabre grew up as a peasant in China when she was saved from instant death in a Rickshaw crash by the Mandarin. The Mandarin noticed the child carrying an abacus and agreed to educate her. He sent her to a lamasery for years where she studied ancient arts and skills unknown to the western world. She wanted to honour her benefactor and prove her worthiness. The most important thing she learned was the power of shrinking certain objects and making them grow. However she wanted power over living things and wanted the same power as the world-famous Giant Man.
Madame Macabre approached Giant Man at his lab and told him they would be invincible if they joined forces. Giant Man refused her offer of partnership so Madame Macabre warned him that they would be enemies. She told the Avenger that no one would stop her future plans and she would defeat him with the aid of her little toys. Madame Macabre left his lab and set plans with her lackeys to take down Giant Man.
