Early life

Adrienne Wylde Frost-Barnes was born on June 15th, 1977 to the Winter Soldier (Bucky Barnes) and Emma Frost in a Hydra facility in Siberia via the use of in vitro fertilization (IVF)

Two days after her birth Adrienne was taken from Emma and transported to another facility, where she was placed in a 'house' environment with two fake parents, Mikhail Uriokovitch and Raven Darkholme, that raised her on Hydra propaganda.

Emma Frost managed to escape Hydra and did try looking for Adrienne.

When Adrienne was four years old, she found a stray cat wandering the 'garden' and brought it home.

Raven protested that they couldn't keep it but Adrienne firmly declared that the cat was going to live with them. When Mikhail came home from work later that day and saw what was going on, he sat Adrienne down and told her that the "cat" was actually a very dangerous animal, and they couldn't keep it. Mikhail then made Adrienne kill the cat and bury it in the garden herself.

When Adrienne was seven, she accidentally used her powers to make one of them men observing her and her 'family' unlock Raven's collar. Raven grabbed Adrienne and fled with her.

Raven took Adrienne to Xavier's School where she asked Charles to remove Adrienne's memories of her time with Hydra. They also agreed to lock away her powers and enhancements. (Though her healing and her speed have been noted as being slightly above the human average)

Adrienne was then adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Wilson in Canada who suddenly decided to adopt a child.

Her name was changed to Wylde Wilson.

Growing up, Wylde idolized her older brother Wade. They were very close and according to Wade, Wylde was a fast runner and he would always chase after her. Every Christmas, Wade, and Wylde would compete to see who could eat the holiday candy canes the fastest, which the latter allegedly always won.

As a child, Wylde was very creative and loved to draw and color, to the point that Mikhail would order her many boxes of crayons "by the truckload." Wylde would even draw on the walls of her home, much to her Raven's fond exasperation.

Wylde took up her Red Sparrow mantle after she tried to intervene in a store robbery, she was still young and failed, and ended up getting shot for it.

After her 'quick' recovery Wylde met up with a former lover, Dimitri, an acrobat for the circus as well as a former KGB operative, who trained her up. (Wade has no knowledge of this side of her but Weasel helps her)



Wylde is a reckless and impulsive person. She enjoys partying, drinking (Though she cannot get drunk) and boys, often getting herself and others into trouble just for fun. She considers herself a novelty, as she is always pulling off crazy stunts and making wisecracks for entertainment. Although somewhat flirty with other males, and willing to make out with those who caught her eye, she is not necessarily promiscuous, considering she remained a virgin for much longer than most of her peers (she eventually lost her virginity to an acrobat and former KGB member named Dimitri on her eighteenth birthday).

Wylde also holds very little respect for authority figures, and will often mouth off. Wylde can also be somewhat violent towards those who antagonized her. Wylde is not all talk: not only can she shoot out hilarious and seething comebacks, but she packs a mean punch.

Wylde suffers from nightmares that she believes mean nothing, but in reality, it's her childhood seeping through. She has nightmares of a blue woman (Raven) and a bear (Mikhail)

"There is a passion and intensity that radiates off of her, almost like a palpable thing"

Wylde also has very powerful protective instincts. She cannot stand to sit back and see people get hurt, always trying to do something to help wherever possible, even if for a complete and total stranger. She is extraordinarily devoted to helping innocent people.

Wylde can be very sarcastic and sharp-tongued at times. She always has a smartass comment ready whenever someone says something antagonistic to her, and always bites back with a witty insult. She doesn't hesitate to speak her mind and can be extremely stubborn in her opinions.

Although Wylde is not necessarily conceited, she is very aware of the fact that she is beautiful.

She can be friendly and warm, not shying away from meeting new people, and has considerable skill in social interactions. Wylde has a certain charisma that attracts people and makes them flock to her.

Wylde is also adept at using her feminine wiles. She has shown an ability to seduce men and sweet talk them into giving her what she wants.

She loves carnivals, potty humor, pinball, rock music, television shows, vintage music (1940/50s), and American pop culture.



- Wylde wears a sparrow pendant around her neck, this is a gift from Raven. It is also how she gained her Vigilante Name: Red Sparrow.

- Wylde has a fondness for wearing red, also another reason for her Vigilante Name: Red Sparrow

- She loves Big Belly Burger, especially the french fries.

- She likes the Harry Potter series.

- Wylde is right-handed, as whenever she is seen using her bow and arrow, she always uses her right hand to pull back on the arrow.
