Maria Brophy was a sprinter who dreamed of gold medals and world records. But the speed just wasn't there: she was destined for a life of bronze medals and no records. Desperate, she turned to the occult and actually summoned up a demon. He made her a deal: in exchange for her soul after death, he would given her super speed in life. Of course, the demon cheated: Maria's newfound powers produced noxious clouds of brimstone whenever she used them, making it impossible for her to compete and win. Realizing that she was now on a clock, the bitter runner turned to crime as a means of funding her hedonism. She took up the alias "Burnt Rubber." She is the newest member of the Ring of Fire.
