Fictional character biography
She recruited the Punisher. Later she was transferred to the New Ultimates. After Fury returned as director of S.H.I.E.L.D., he reassembled the Ultimates and Monica rejoined that team, moving with her and Fury's child, Julius Chang, to the Triskelion. She then became director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Monica Chang makes her first appearance in Marvel's mainstream Earth-616 continuity in the series Avengers A.I. In this series, Monica is the chief of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s A.I. Division. Monica enlists Hank Pym to help her stop Dimitrios (who evolved from the fail-safe virus used to defeat Ultron at the end of the Age of Ultron storyline) and they form the Avengers A.I. consisting of a Doombot, Victor Mancha and the Vision. During their first mission, the Avengers A.I. faced hijacked S.H.I.E.L.D. Drones which attacked a hospital in Atlanta. It is revealed she is a devout Muslim. She later prevents the end of the universe by preventing the execution of an LMD infected with a virus.
