In the comics, Barbara Ann Minerva was born the heiress to a vast fortune and grew up to be an archaeologist. The ambitious, deeply selfish Minerva searched throughout Africa for a specific tribe who was protected by a mysterious female guardian who was linked to the Cheetah. After the guardian was murdered by a group of bandits, Minerva underwent a ritual to become the next individual infused with Cheetah-like powers.
