A special education teacher who was happy with her ordinary life, Alix Harrower was reluctantly drawn into the world of superheroics by her husband. Obsessed with being famous and eternally young, Lance created the alloy smartskin and tested it on himself. The experiment went wrong, and he accidentally transmitted the smartskin to Alix. She survived because the skin under her ring did not get covered in smartskin, allowing the doctors to inject her with medication. Her husband suffocated under the weight of his smartskin. Uncertain of what to do with her life with her husband dead and her job lost, she reluctantly became a superhero.
Bulleteer was created by Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette. She made her first appearance in Seven Soldiers: Bulleteer #1. She is partially based on Bulletgirl.

Seven Soldiers of Victory
Alix is contacted by Helen Helligan, due to her almost having been a member of the doomed Seven Soldiers of Victory. She accompanies Helligan to intimidate the Hand into revealing his knowledge of Neh-Buh-Loh and the Sheeda. Later, she is hired by Suli Stellamaris as a bodyguard during a superhuman convention. There, she meets Thumbelina, a super porn star who knows Sally Sonic, the woman whose affair with Lance lead to the accident that killed him. Alix returns home following a failed assassination attempt by I, Spyder to find that her boarder is in fact Sally Sonic. Intensely jealous of Alix's seemingly perfect, happy life, Sally attacks her. She and Alix engage in a fierce fight, and though Sally initially has the upper hand Alix soon overwhelms her. Following the fight, she is approached by an apparition of Vigilante, who tells her that she is the Spear That Was Never Thrown, fated to destroy the Sheeda and save the world. She angrily rejects the prophecy and the idea of being a superhero. She loads Sally into her car and attempts to drive her to the hospital.
