First appearance:

Family: Unknown


Jane Foster graduated from Culver University with a doctorate in Astrophysics and began studying a mysterious weather event that she believed was linked to an Einstein-Rosen Bridge. Her research drew the attention of SWORD, a branch of SHIELD dealing with otherworldly threats to Earth. Believing she would be a valuable asset, Fury contracted her to continue her studies with SHIELD funding and supervision. She met Thor through her work, becoming romantically involved with him and, thanks to that connection, quickly became one of Earth's foremost experts on all things Asgardian.

In September 2015, following her outing as a mutant by the media, Jean's former intern, Darcy Lewis sought Jane's help. Jane contacted her old associate from SHIELD, Clinton Barton, and arranged for her to be given refuge.

Jane reappeared in June 2019 at the International Stark Science Conference in Paris. Meeting with old friend Dr Paul Duval, Jane was surprised to see Darcy Lewis also there, accompanied by Reed Richards. When the group adjourned to Paul's labs, he showed them his latest discovery, an Asgardian hammer similar to Mjolnir. The lab was invaded at that moment by the Worthies, warriors of former King of Asgard, Cul Bor'son, God of Fear. In the ensuing chaos, Paul grabbed the hammer and was transformed into Mokk, another Worthy. It was only because Darcy hid them both under a desk that Jane was able to survive the incident unscathed.
