When Dr Ominous raiding a Lobster Tech lab he sent in six of his O-Men. Seven came back. Vanessa was an intern at said lab that saw an opportunity to discard her old life and start anew. Little is known about who she was before. They’re not even sure if Vanessa is her real name, but what is known is that she has a seemingly endless supply of cheer and is always eager to lend a hand. Heck, she even volunteers to help sort of the recycling from the trash. Who does that?
