Fictional character biography
Formerly an exotic dancer, Dansen Macabre was a devoted worshipper of the God Shiva. She used her powers to hypnotize Spider-Man into battling The Shroud in attempt to kill both of them. The pair managed to overcome her dances and defeat her. She briefly appeared later as a captive of Locksmith, but was saved by Spider-Woman. Eventually, the Shroud invited her to join the Night Shift, which she accepted and became co-leader. She served in several missions, mainly going up against the Avengers. She took some time out to work with Superia and the Femizons as they battled Captain America.
Dansen Macabre leads the Night Shift, as part of the Hood's gang. They battle the Midnight Sons, and Dansen fights Jennifer Kale but is bitten by Morbius, the Living Vampire. She and the Night Shift are killed when the zombie virus mutates and becomes airborne. The virus cloud begins to rain blood, and reanimates the Night Shift as zombies.Dormammu assumes control of the Night Shift and uses them to fight the Midnight Sons. When Jennifer Kale and the Black Talon contain the virus within the Zombie (Simon Garth), the Night Shift members are apparently restored to normal, and the Hood teleports away with them.
