Betty Simpson is the daughter of the U.S. Secretary of State. She was traveling across country by car with her friend Veronica Robbins, trying to distance herself from her cheating boyfriend (Scott Goodman). The pair stopped at a diner in the tiny town of Dinosaur, Colorado. Weird events events ensued and Betty and Veronica both disappeared.
Betty Simpson's father subsequently contacted H.A.M.M.E.R. to ask for its leader Norman Osborn and his team of government-sanctioned Avengers to help find Betty.
Note that best friends Betty Simpson and Veronica Robbins (i.e., "Betty and Veronica") are named after the two lead female characters from Archie comics. Their appearance is also loosely based on these two iconic comic characters from another publisher.
Veronica's nickname is "Ronnie." Betty shouts this nickname in panel 3 on page 4.
