Alison is a telepath and was a member of S.T.R.I.K.E.'s Psi Division, along with Betsy Braddock, Tom Lennox, Kevin Mulhearn, Vicki Reppion and Avril Davis. When the crimelord Vixen secretly took over S.T.R.I.K.E., she sent her assassin Slaymaster after the psi division in order to silence them. Slaymaster killed Kevin, Vicki and Avril before Captain Britain was able to defeat him, and the psi-division's survivors Alison, Betsy and Tom moved into Braddock Manor for a time.

When the Prime Minister James Jaspers was putting superhumans in internment camps, the psi's were forced to go into hiding. Alison developed a fever and had to be cared for by her friends. Soon after Jaspers' agents eventually found them, killed Tom and captured Alison and Betsy, putting them in one of the camps for superhumans and mutants. Inside the camp, the two women befriended Victoria Bentley, a magically gifted former ally of Doctor Strange and the Black Knight. After Jaspers' death, Alison and Betsy spent several months recovering from their ordeal in the care of Bentley.
