Fabio is one of the numerous new mutants whose powers manifested after the Avengers vs. X-Men event.

His powers manifested after he was victim of a robbery attempt on him in the street, according to his explications to the police. He was being put into custody by San Diego Police officers, who were very indelicate with him, after his mutant abilities manifested in the street, but was interrupted by Cyclops and his group of X-Men who showed up at the scene to rescue him.

After a squad of various sized Sentinels attacked the new mutant and Cyclops' team, and were annihilate by this last's powers. they offered to Fabio to join them, leaving San Diego. Even if he was reluctant on joining the X-Men, he prefers to follow them instead of stay in the city.

He joined the X-Men during their visit to Eva Bell's home and the encounter with the Avengers before being dragged into Limbo by Dormammu's attempt to kill them. In the aftermath, he demanded he be taken home, where his family questioned his disappearance and didn't understand his claims at being a mutant.

He lost control of his power as Alison Blaire arrived as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D and questions him about Cyclops' location. He was later taken into S.H.I.E.L.D custody and then rescued by Cyclops' team and joins them once more. He later assists in the battle against the Blockbuster Sentinel by concentrating the emission of his gold balls to topple the Sentinel and takes on the mutant nickname Goldballs.
