When Maru was young, her parents, both scientists, were approached by the Americans to produce a checmical weapon. They refused, but days later, they were arrested by the Russians. Maru only learned years later her parents died during their interrogation.

She dedicated herself to her parents' work, but not for the Americans - instead, she would use it against them. She plotted to poison President Obama at a G8 summit in London. One scientist she had abducted managed to get word out, and Wonder Woman countered her plans.

Maru planned to disperse the poison close to the president with a cloaked drone, but Wonder Woman could disable it. Maru escaped, but was apprehended shortly after and handed over to the police. With the aid of a concealed poison capsule, she could escape from the prison van.
