Initially using her powers of mind control to gain vast amounts of wealth, she was later invited to join a secret organization of the elite. Discovering their plan to eliminate all mutants, she allied with a fellow mutant to seize control of the group. At the same time, she created her own mutant academy and clashed with the X-Men repeatedly. Eventually wounded by a menacing threat, she willed her estate to Charles Xavier and the X-Men, trusting enemy mutants over humans.
