Typhoid Mary is a criminal in New York City that Daredevil has fought many times. Her special abilities include pyrokinesis, telekinesis, and hypnotic ability that is very limited. Like Daredevil, she is skilled in hand-to-hand combat and is an expert with various weapons that involve blades. It is possible that her childhood abuse led her into being a criminal who has worked as an assassin for the Kingpin, who is also one of Daredevil's arch-enemies, and has had Daredevil on her hit list. It was through her childhood that Mary developed a disassociative identity disorder, which has given her three distinct personalities: timid Mary, lustful Typhoid, and vicious Bloody Mary. She does have a distinct fourth personality which is a combination of all three personalities, but she is known as Typhoid Mary.
