- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: She's the one who developed the Venjix virus albeit just for the building she was in and nothing beyond that. But in truth this should extend to the organization that was looking after her. As if they had just let her get out once in a while.

- Name's the Same: No, he's not the same Venjix from "Forever Red".
