Elizabeth had been abused by her father until one day she killed him in self-defense, so she fled and changed her identity becoming "Janine". One day, Ben Reilly, who had hit the road to find himself after figuring out he was a clone of Spider-Man, wandered into her diner. He asked her out, in part due to her likeness to Mary Jane, but his urge to do the right thing put pressure on their developing romance. Eventually, he showed up at her place battered and bleeding, and the two grew closer by sharing and eventually accepting each others pasts.
The two decided to leave Utah for a fresh start in Santa Cruz, but they were eventually tracked down by a jealous Kaine. Janine was kidnapped by Kaine, who was able to convince her that Ben was better off without her. So, Janine decided to fake her death by suicide to drive Ben away. Years later, while Ben was active as Spider-Man in New York City, Janine was tricked into reaching out to him by Kaine. Kaine was playing with Ben, and when he stood up to Kaine, she was inspired by his words to confess to the police and take responsibility for the murder of her father.
After serving many years in a traditional prison, Janine was transferred to a private minimum security prison owned and operated by the Beyond Corporation. It was actually a penthouse in Beyond’s new New York City headquarters, which was part of a deal Beyond made with Ben Reilly, to be their new sponsored Spider-Man. Janine was very suspicious of Beyond’s too-good-to-be-true deal, but her concerns mostly fell on deaf ears to Ben.
As soon as Ben started having his own suspicions, he stole a Beyond hard drive and slipped it to Janine. While he was in his corporate mandated therapy sessions, Janine worked on unlocking the information inside of it. She found that the recent surge in super-villain activity was due to The Beyond Corporation, who were using Ben to clean up their messes and take credit for stopping the threats. With this new information, she sneaked out of Beyond Tower to ask Mary Jane for help. Unfortunately, Beyond sent the new villain Queen Goblin, who was actually Dr. Ashley Kafka, Ben’s therapist, who destroyed the hard drive. Although the drive was successfully destroyed, Janine was rescued by Ben. After telling him what she found, Ben informed her that Beyond had also been editing his memories.
In anger, Ben attacked Beyond Tower, while Janine sought out the real Spider-Man to stop Ben for his own good. Unwilling not to help, she went to Beyond and was able to save their Beyond contact, Marcus, from armed Beyond guards. Meanwhile, Ben had created enough chaos that Beyond initiated their cover-up protocols, using a psycho-active chemical to erase Beyond resources from Earth.. Janine escaped, but Ben was not as lucky. She later found him in the sewer having been changed by the chemical and calling himself Chasm.
Janine was living with Ben, who was raiding Beyond safe houses for tech that might return his memories to him. Instead, he assembled a gateway to Limbo where he made an alliance with Madelyne Pryor to steal memories back from the real Peter Parker. Janine told Madelyne about her insecurities and how she wanted to help Ben more. Using the magic from the finger of the demon S'ym, Madelyne gave her the power to do so and Janine then joined them as Hallows' Eve.
