During her criminal years she was responsible for the death of 86 people including Luke Medina the son of Antwon Medina. The relationship between her and Luke is unknown but his body was discovered stripped naked, posed like a statue, and with Hella's name signed on his bare chest. This is described by the media as typical for her and suggests a sociopathic disregard for human life.
It has not been explained how she met or began her relationship with Earth most powerful super-hero, Sovereign or why she broke up with Hector Hunt. After the break up Hector put a spell on her making her unable to tell anyone what she knows about him and he took back the stone, leaving her with only some residual magic. At the time Sovereign was in a relationship with Hayley Harper of G.B.C. News but began a relationship with Hella. Hella was presumably captured at some point but after Sovereign informed the US government he would withhold his super hero services they made a deal that she be released into his care. Hella changed her name to Helen Heart, moved in with sovereign, and was placed on probation under the observation of a top secret US government agency.
