Gina Manelli's real name was Mercy Halleck. She lied about her name and wrote a tell-all book about being the mistress of Franco Bertinelli
. It was this claim that made her a target of the Bookworm
who went to kill her for the information she might have. She recants everything and the Huntress
even stops Bookworm but it was too late as the Bookworm finishes the job he started.
