Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2: Story

She became the new Prime Minister of Latveria, due to the apparent "death" of Doctor Doom. Von Bardas was secretly funding American technology-based supercriminals through the Tinkerer. S.H.I.E.L.D. found out about this and Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. had suggested, believing that they could handle the situation diplomatically. but the President didn't take measures because he and the U.S government got her elected and sent her over $75 million to help rebuild the country and help the people. Due to the oblivious nature of the government, Fury gathered a group of heroes for an undercover mission to overthrow the Latverian government and to either get her to surrender or die. Due to the heroes defeating one of Tinkerer's superpowered machines, an explosion consumed Doom's Castle with Bardas apparently dying while still in the castle as it exploded.

She reappeared one year later attacking New York as a deformed cyborg. When the heroes (helped by Ms. Marvel) attacked her on a ship, she started to activate herself as a bomb taking Diamondback, Scorcher, Shocker, and Wizard along for the ride only to be defeated and deactivated by the heroes. In the PSP, Wii, and PS2 versions however, she invaded the New York streets directly. This eventually culminated in the superheroes following her to Times Square where she had planted a massive bomb (that had to be destroyed within 5 minutes). Upon the bomb's destruction, she collapsed, lamenting her failure to Latveria.
