History:

Aracely, as she was calling herself at the time, was saved by Kaine, from an organization that specialized in human trafficking. She was left at the hospital, but soon found that she was being hunted down by a villain who called himself The Salamander. The Salamander had managed to recapture Aracely, and placed her in a container filled with other victims of his human trafficking operation. When Scarlet Spider learned of her abduction, he returned and confronted The Salamander and defeated him. Aracely was saved, but she was the sole survivor within the container that house dead bodies of immigrants.

Scarlet Spider then took aracely to the Four Seasons Hotel, which he was using as a base of operations during his time in Houston, Texas, hoping that he could keep her safe. Later, Scarlet Spider is hired by an assassins guild to take down and kill Wolverine. Aracely demands that she goes along with him, donning on her own costume and calling herself “Hummingbird.” Together, they manage to infiltrate the Jean Grey School for Gifted Mutants, and take down an assortment of mutants who opposed them.

She was later found by her captors, Carlos Lobo and his sister. During this time, Scarlet Spider learned that Aracely was supposed the host of a Aztec God of War, by the name of Huitzilopochtli.

In Mexico, still with Kaine Parker, they encounter Water Snake, and after a brief scuffle with Kaine Parker, Water Snake explains that she was looking for someone in Lemuria, when the city was suddenly attacked by Deviant forces. During the battle however, a new enemy appeared and began slaughtering without discretion.

The enemies that slaughtered both Atlantean and Deviant were none other than the Evolutionaries, who appeared just after she explained her story. Scarlet Spider, Hummingbird and Water Snake are defeated and captured by the Evolutionaries and brought before High Evolutionary who places them in prison spheres, in the same room as Nova. Water Snake tries desperately to break the sphere, while Hummingbird tells everyone to remain calm. Nova (Sam Alexander) repeatedly confuses Scarlet Spider for Spider-Man until Scarlet Spider uses his ability to summon spiders to short circuit the spheres. They free Nova and try to make their escape, but find themselves under attack. Scarlet Spider demands that Nova escape and that the others will buy him time; and just as it seems like Nova leaves to get help – he returns to try and turn the tide of battle, only to be taken down just like the others.

Hummingbird and the rest of the New Warriors eventually defeated the Evolutionaries and went on to find Namorita, and restore her.

Powers: Aracely has the ability to sense the emotions of other people; even from long distances. She has also been known to induce fear in other people; perhaps an amplification of her ability to “sense” their emotions, she’s also capable of triggering specific emotions. Her psychic presence was strong enough to make two powerful telepaths, such as Rachel Grey and Kid Omega to writhe in pain.

Accessories: None
