A former rodeo queen, The Wrangler used her expertise to become a mercenary. Edit
Laralie was a young rodeo queen with amazing lasso skills turned into assassin as the western rope would become her trademark instrument of death. Laralie would be hired by Damon Dran alongside five other mercenaries and assassins which included Black Lotus, Kono, N'Kama, Deadshot Darrance and Iron Maiden to capture Black Widow. The group is sent to Hong Kong where they would ambush the Black Widow as she enters a shop to inquire information on a particular dagger. Laralie uses her rope skills to restrain Black Widow while the rest of her comrades surround the Russian beauty. The group begins to bicker and argue amongst themselves so Black Widow takes advantage of the situation and kicks Black Lotus. Black Widow flips Laralie into a wall and eventually escapes from the rest of the assassins.
Wrangler was created by Ralph Macchio and George Perez in 1983 and first appeared in Marvel Fanfare # 11. She went by the name of Laralie in her first appearance in Marvel Fanfare but it changed to Wrangler in Captain America # 389.
