Searching for experiences to hone her acting skills, Lindsay sought treatment at the Hatros Institute, a center for emotional studies founded by a renowned pop-psychologist. During a therapy group, Lindsay met Jessica Drew, who was secretly Spider-Woman. Lindsay stood out in Jessica's life as the first woman who didn't show over hostility to her in reaction to Jessica's super-humanly acute "alarm" pheromones. They became fast friends when Lindsay defended Jessica from the group in a hostile therapy session and encouraged her to leave the clinic.
The two spent time together and eventually became best friends. When Lindsay received an offer to study in the San Francisco Repertory Theatre, she invited Jessica to move in as her new roommate. Jessica accepted and the two thrived in the new city. During this time, Lindsay discovered the truth about Jessica's double-life, but chose to avoid confronting her friend with the truth. Lindsay honored Jessica's need for privacy by keeping the secret about her Spider-Woman activities. When Lindsay suffered near-fatal injuries protecting one of Jessica's clients from the terrorist Viper, Jessica broke and told her the truth.
Since Lindsay's recovery forced her to postpone acting studies, she worked as office help in Jessica's private investigation firm. Lindsay stuck by Jessica when she lost her spider-powers after a deadly encounter with immortal sorceress Morgan Le Fey. She even supported Jessica's decision to harbor the X-Men while they recuperated from a fierce battle with the Beyonder. Over time, Lindsay graduated from "office help" to "business partner", becoming a detective in her own right.
When Jessica was possessed by a demonic sword in Madripoor, Lindsay teamed up with the Silver Samurai and Wolverine to save her best friend. The women remained in Madripoor and occasionally helped Wolverine, until Jessica suffered injuries in battle which required their hasty return to the States. By this time, Jessica had long regained most of her spider-powers. Shortly afterward, Jessica was kidnapped by an other-dimensional entity and Lindsay petitioned Julia Carpenter, the second Spider-Woman, to aid the rescue effort. Jessica was freed and in turn rescued Lindsay and Spider-Woman from the mystic realm.
Lindsay McCabe's current activities and whereabouts are unknown at this time.
