So why is she called Typhoid Mary?
Her real name is Mary Walker, and she's schizophrenic. "Typhoid" is one of her violent, deranged alternate personalities that she nicknamed. Hence Typhoid Mary. As for why it's Typhoid, not exactly sure. Might be a play on the real-life Mary Mallon of the typhoid epidemic, who was historically nicknamed "Typhoid Mary."
See, I assumed someone with the name Typhoid Mary's superpower is to spread deadly diseases at will like the two Spanish twins from Heroes. It's a weird name if diseases don't figure into her powers at all.
I mean you'd have to ask her creators. In the Elektra movie her power was basically kissing you and sucking the life out of you, so there you go.
