America Chavez's past is largely a mystery. Her world was allegedly made an utopia by her mothers, two costumed superheroines. Unfortunately, they had to sacrifice their lives in the process, smearing themselves across the Multiverse. She seems to have inherited their superpowers, but for unknown reasons, America ran away from her home and responsibilities at a very young age. She eventually adopted the moniker of Miss America, and began covertly acting as a superhero.
With the Teen Brigade, she freed the In-Betweener from government confinement center, Groom Lake Adjacent in Nevada. With information from the In-Between, the Teen Brigade set out to prevent the Young Masters of Evil from disrupting the balance between Chaos and Order. To stop the Young Masters from recruiting Kid Loki, Miss America broke into the Met, but Loki used the Screaming Idol to send her to the Sixth Dimension. There she fought Tiboro, and was later rescued by the Last Defenders, She-Hulk and Hellstrom, under the direction of the In-Betweener. She rejoined her teammates in Latveria where they fought the Braak'nhüd, Young Masters and Doctor Doom. The battle was ended when Ultimate Nullifier shot the In-Betweener. While the smoke cleared, the Teen Brigade covertly departed.
Miss America parted ways with the Teen Brigade due to "musical differences", and eventually travelled to Earth-212. She was later approached by the teenage trickster god, Loki. He attempted to persuade Miss America into killing Wiccan for the good of the Multiverse. Disgusted with the proposition, Miss America fought Loki and decided to secretly protect Wiccan.
Miss America later rescued Hulkling, Wiccan, and Loki from Mother's Laufey, retreated with them to MJ's, escaped with them aboard Marvel Boy's ship, and aided them in the final face-off with Mother's forces in Central Park.
After fending off, Mother's forces she escapes along with the other Young Avengers and soon learn they have to stay away from mother and their own parents to avoid her powers.
