In the comics, Chavez comes from the Utopian Parallel, a dimension that exists outside of space and time for the Marvel Multiverse. When a utopian parallel is threatened by a black hole that will pull it in different directions across the multiverse, Chavez’s mothers Amalia and Elena sacrifice themselves to prevent that from happening.

The only survivor of her race, Chavez uses her abilities to open an inter-dimensional portal to find a new home – taking her to Earth (and therefore, we assume, Stephen Strange).
