Here's Mud in Your Eye
Sadie would later try to cozy up to Sandman when he came to her usual bar hang-out. Unfortunately, Hydro-Man ended up showing up, hoping that Sadie would give him a place to stay, but instead ended up picking a fight with Sandman when he saw him with Sadie. Eventually, Sadie managed to get her two admirers to call a truce and even suggested the two team up due to their mutual disdain for Spider-Man. Both Hydro-Man and Sandman kept failing to see past their jealousy however, and they soon went back to fighting.
When Spider-Man heard of the fight that had happened between the two villains at the bar, he tracked them both down in an attempt to bring them down. Now with a common enemy, Hydro-Man and Sandman ended up teaming up after all, but their inability to work together was taken advantage of by Spider-Man, and the two villains ended up accidentally merging into the creature known as Mud-Thing.
Eye of the Beholder
Being composed of both Hydro-Man and Sandman, the creature shared their longing for Sadie, but had no real other fleeting memories from the two men. It was eventually decided that since Mud-Thing had no intention to hurt anyone, and only sought to be with Sadie, that it was an innocent being and had no right to be punished for the wrong-doings of the men it'd been created of. Mud-Thing ended up being placed in Sadie's custody, and she eventually got an offer from an agent known as Travis Rave to appear with Mud-Thing in a King Kong style show. Enamored by the prospect of showbiz, Sadie gladly accepted. Unfortunately, when the show proved to be a huge success, Sadie ended up kissing her agent out of excitement, thereby enraging the jealous Mud-Thing. Mud-Thing ended up going on a rampage, even carrying Sadie with him to the top a sky-scraper. The creature was eventually defeated with a special gas that dried it out and caused it to crumble apart. Spider-Man managed to save Sadie from her plummet, but she ended up being genuinely upset over the loss of Mud-Thing, knowing that all it had ever done wrong was simply love her.
Sadie would later reappear along with Hydro-Man at the auction of the Venom symbiote. While there, they ran into Sandman who purposely instigated an argument between Sadie and Hydro-Man.
Powers and Abilities
Sadie Frackett was a hard-drinking, hard-smoking woman with no real superhuman powers other than her almost superhuman ability to capture the devoted attention of both Hydro-Man and Sandman. Although capable of a rare good idea once in a while, she was more of an oppurtunist rather than a thinker.
