Scorpia uses a mechanical suit that provides enhanced strength and speed and the projection of energy blasts. It also protects her from mortal injury by providing a microscopic force field.
Elaine Colls was a mental patient at Bellevue Hospital in Hell's Kitchen. She was chosen by Silvermane to become the new Scorpion after the retirement of the original. However, she opted to call herself Scorpia, and was eager to get in on some action. Silvermane originally intended for Scorpia to aid The Beetle and Hydro-Man to deliver Deathlok to him. After interference from Spider-Man, though Scorpia proved herself to be a formidable enemy, she was ultimately taken out. She recovered, and brought the surrendering Deathlok back to Silvermane. She was then ordered to ambush Spider-Man and Daredevil, who had infiltrated their base. She was able to wear them down, but was then betrayed by Silvermane, who shot her in the back. Infuriated, Scorpia vowed revenge, and followed Spider-Man and Daredevil to his location. Once there, she immediately attacked, ending her dispute with the heroes and instead going right for her former employer. Mainframe, another of Silvermane's mercenaries, took control over Scorpia's cybernetic enhancements and used her to attack Spider-Man. However, she soon regained mobility and blasted Silvermane. An explosion created by The Punisher knocked Scorpia off the building they were on, but a mentally conflicted Deathlok saved her. She then decided to flee the area, rather than be put in prison.
Scorpia then joined the Sinister Seven alongside The Hobgoblin, Electro, Mysterio, The Vulture, The Shocker, and The Beetle. Their main purpose was to stop Kaine from killing anymore of Spider-Man's enemies. After Hobgoblin was attacked by Kaine in Spider-Man's disguise, Scorpia immediately joined the others in the battle. However, they were not accustomed to working together, much to Scorpia's disdain. Spider-Man eventually entered the battle and was able to defeat Scorpia herself. She also participated in another battle against Spider-Man with some of her former allies, and new ones such as Boomerang and Jack O' Lantern. She was defeated when Spider-Man threw Jack O'Lantern at her.
More recently, Scorpia was seen attacking Carnegie Hall in search of a man named Garrison Klum, who she had planned to assassinate in a redesigned suit. She was able to fight her way through various policemen and thugs, but was attacked by Spider-Man and Black Cat. Scorpia held her own against the pair, but Black Cat was able to rip her tail off by jumping out of a hole in the wall while connected to it. She was later interrogated (quite humorously) by Spider-Man, where she revealed she was hired by Alberto Ortega, the head of a local drug syndicate. It is presumed Scorpia remains in prison.
