When Akasha Martinez first appeared in comics, she was a young woman who became possessed by the powerful consciousness of Ahmet Abdol. She became Living Pharaoh and clashed with Spider-Man. But Akasha was never really evil herself.

Spider-Man destroyed a staff that was being used as a battery for Akasha's powers. Destroying freed Akasha from Abdol's influence. She regained full control of herself, and she retained some of the powers she had gained. Akasha peacefully left Spider-Man and flew away to seek her destiny.

Years later, Civil War: Battle Damage Report showed that Tony Stark considered Akasha a candidate for the Initiative (a government-sponsored super-hero program).
