Spiral is a villain in the Marvel universe. She was originally Rita Wayword, a professional stuntwoman who befriended the mutant hero Longshot from the dimension of Mojoverse. How she became the supervillain Spiral is a paradox. She was attacked by her future evil self, which led to her meeting and falling in love with Longshot. When he returned to his home dimension, she went with him, and they were both captured by the dimension's evil ruler, Mojo. Longshot was mind-wiped of all memory of Rita, while she herself was transformed into a living weapon. Mojo and his scientists performed experiments on her, which made her grow six arms (some flesh, some robotic), her hair turn silver, and gave her the mental ability to teleport and time-travel. She was trained in the dark arts of magic and fighting. Then Spiral was sent back in time to attack her former self and set in motion those events.
Spiral serves under Mojo as his right-hand and guardian. She wields several swords and can conjure up more weapons and other objects through sorcery and teleportation. Currently, she serves as a member of the X-Force.
