- Main Article: Sara Ehret
Sara Ehret was a human woman born in the modern age with short dark hair who came to be a scientist working at Phelcorp Labs that was a subsidiary of Oscorp. She was one of a number of researchers that were conducting work into looking for a cure for Parkinson's Disease. Around 4 years ago, she was pregnant when they were using gene therapy as a possible solution where they created Lot 777 that was virus designed to rewrite older genes to create new ones. During testing, she was accidentally exposed and was left comatose for four months where she made an apparent recovery. Ehret later gave birth to a daughter with her partner where they was apparently no side effects from Lot 777. This was until one day an incident caused falling debris to nearly drop on them but Sara showed super-strength that she used to save her family. Upon showing powers, she went on the path to become a superhero where she underwent training as part of the Initiative program and took the name Jackpot. Despite this, she actually did not like the life of being a hero and wanted to be normal. One day, she was operating as a hero when she drew the attention of a civilian named Alana Jobson who was enamoured with the life of a hero. The two became friends with Sara confiding in her that she never wanted to be a superhero and instead wanted to live an ordinary life. Jobson then suggested that she take her superhero persona as she wanted to be a hero. Ehret agreed and returned to her family life whilst Alana continued being Jackpot where she fought crime.
