When Lilith Mother of all Demons
was freed from Leviathan her mystical prison and summoned her Lilin
, their presence weakened the dimensional fabrics, this led to a reality rip to occur in Phoenix, Arizona
, in a rundown building basement. This rip allowed a hive thinking bacteria known as the Viral Swarm
to enter Earth 616. In the Viral Swarm's home world, they were the dominant life-form as they had fed and consumed all living beings are energy forms. The Viral Swarm seeing the reality rip into Earth 616 saw this as new life energy to feed on.
The basement in Phoenix, Arizona was being used by several homeless people as a shelter. The Viral Swarm bacteria separated and in doing so found amongst the various homeless people individual hosts. this particular part of the hive bacteria would enter a female and transformed herself into the being known as Dreadlox.
Dreadlox was created by Roy Thomas
and Andre Coates
in 1993 and first appeared in The Secret Defenders
Powers Granted To Host
Now that the Viral Swarm had infected the host body, it used its power from its original world to transform the homeless human into a Superhuman, the bacteria would allow the host to represent swarms reputation and fear it had in its homeworld. This allowed the human host Dreadlox to create powerful and deadly illusions of her victims worst fears and nightmares and bring them to life.
She also had the ability to heal and create youth in others. This among the Swarm's own ability to drain human lifeforce, have a joint mind giving them a supreme hive intellect made them a deadly team.
