Vanessa is a tough, serious, and interrogative woman. She does have ways of tricking people. She was sent to investigate Chloe Sullivan after Chloe had broken into several government databases to try and locate Brainiac and Kara Kent. Vanessa was convinced that Chloe was a terrorist in a sleeper cell. She first approached Jimmy Olsen about Chloe's activities at the Talon and made him help her find out what Chloe was up to. Jimmy, who was initially reluctant, was left with no choice by Vanessa who made Jimmy rethink his trust in Chloe. Already disturbed and confused over Chloe's recent behavior, Jimmy was thus easily forced into helping Vanessa. So she kidnapped her, tied her up and tortured her. Just as Vanessa was about to kill her, Jimmy knocked her and another Department of Domestic Security agent unconscious and rescued Chloe.
