Daisy Johnson, alias Quake, was at first believed to be a mutant with seismic (earthquake-producing) ability, her powers come from her status as the illegitimate daughter of Calvin Zabo, the supervillain known as Mister Hyde, and a woman with Inhuman lineage. Before taking the Hyde Formula, Zabo still had tampered with his DNA. Calvin had regular "business" with a prostitute named Kim Johnson, who immediately gave her up for adoption. Daisy was named Cory Sutter when she was seven months old, at the time her foster parents adopted her. When Daisy became a teenager and stole two CD's, her vibrational powers accidentally awakened as a result of her mother's Inhuman lineage, having caused an earthquake.
