Character History

One of Us, One of Them

Dr. Zimmerman, the man who delivered Niki and Tracy, initially confuses Tracy for Barbara when she visits his home in Reseda.

I Am Become Death

Zimmerman explains to Tracy how she, Niki, and Barbara were separated and given to adoptive parents after they were given evolved human abilities.

Angels and Monsters

Angela explains to Tracy and Nathan that the Company injected Barbara with the contents of the formula, which gave Niki and Tracy their respective abilities.

Graphic Novel:From the Files of Primatech, Part 7

In 1991, Bob Bishop and Charles Deveaux meet with their associate Jonas Zimmerman at Primatech Research. Accompanying Jonas is Barbara and Charles's daughter Simone. Charles asks his daughter if she and Barbara had fun, and Simone tells him that they mostly just drew pictures. Barbara and Simone then leave with Charles, and Zimmerman suggests that Bob experiment on Elle, like he did with Barbara. He reminds Bob that now the Company knows the full extent of Barbara's ability.
