Totally reworked designs of Whitney Frost/Madame Masque for my Alternate Marvel Universe.
In this Alternate Marvel Universe, Giuletta Nefaria remains the daughter of Count Luchino Nefaria as well as a woman with romantic ties to Tony Stark.
As in the regular Marvel Universe, Giuletta Nefaria is given into the care of industrialist Bryon Frost, a wealthy business man whose business is tied to the Maggia, to be raised as his daughter in order to protect Giuletta and to keep her from being used as a tool against her father by both enemies inside and outside the Maggia. Unlike the regular Marvel Universe however Giuletta Nefaria is aware that she is the daughter of Nefaria.
Given the new identity of “Whitney Frost”, she grows up in the eyes of the outside world as the actual daughter of Bryon Frost and eventually succeeds Frost as the head of Frost Industries Unlimited upon his death as his legal heir. It is at this time that Whitney Frost embraces her true heritage as the daughter of Count Nefaria allowing Frost Industries Unlimited to fully become a secret Maggia own corporation providing the Nefaria Maggia Faction with most of the tech and weapons used in its criminal endeavors.
It was as the head of Frost Industries that Whitney in concert with her father and his more criminal methods, attempted to forge a business partnership with Stark Enterprises in the hopes of gaining it as another legitimate business entity that would be able to provide the Nefaria Faction with needed resources to further their criminal goals. Frost also became romantically involved with Tony Stark in an attempt to further gain his trust to achieve her goals of control of Stark Enterprises. Frost and Stark’s attempted business as well as personal relationships ended when Whitney revealed to Stark that she was in fact the daughter of Count Nefaria after her father was left in a comatose state due to donning a power armor suit to challenge Iron Man and he lost the confrontation between the two. This results in Whitney Frost adopting the costumed identity of Madame Masque to continue her father’s goal of bringing Stark Enterprises under the Maggia’s control without the general public knowing of Whitney Frost’s connections to the Maggia.
Even after her father eventually awakened from his comatose state, she has continued to pursue the goal of acquiring Stark Enterprises and seeking revenge upon Iron Man for the humiliation she views he has placed upon her family’s criminal reputation with his opposition to their plans and the defeats they have so far suffered at his hands. Madame Masque is now the overseer of the Nefaria Factions various interest on the Eastern Coast of the United States while her father currently attempts a takeover of the West Coast criminal underworld in his efforts to expand the Nefaria Faction's power base.
As Madame Masque, Giuletta Nefaria is a skilled hand to hand combatant, acrobat, gymnast, firearms and explosives expert. She also has shown a mastery of disguise and mimicry of other woman. All of theses skills were learned and honed over the years she spent living her cover life of Whitney Frost.
