Choke was a regular opponent of the Freedom Five and their allies. She is frequently at the heart of troubles concerning military installations or stockpiles of weaponry. It was hardly surprising that she allied herself with the Vengeful Five when Baron Blade called. But when she was fatally wounded by K.N.Y.F.E., many believed that would be the end of Choke.
However, Choke's body melded with the energy crystal used by the villain known as Deadline, granting her new knowledge and power. Chokepoint was born. Taking power from the tech of the heroes who stand in her way, Chokepoint is on a self-appointed quest to destroy and rebuild the world in her own image.
