Highsmith (whose first name is unknown) discovered she was a mutant at a relatively young age, when her parents suspected she needed plastic surgery. When she grew up, she became one of the settlers at a mutant "Utopia" in Antarctica, where she quarreled with Butterfly-Bore.

Unfortunately, the colonists became among the first victims of the insanity-causing abomination Golgotha. Highsmith was comparatively lucky in that she was driven neither homicidal nor suicidal by the beast, but she was still left in a catatonic state, in which she was found by the X-Men. Rogue touched her in an attempt to access her memories to find out what had caused the catastrophe, but she was unsuccessful.[1]
