Hisako Ichiki was one of the numerous mutants rescued from Stryker's camps by the X-Men.[1] She was later one of few rescued mutants who decided to decline the offer to take a cure for the mutant gene, and instead joined Kitty Pryde in the formation of a sovereign state known as Utopia.[2]

The Final Incursion and New Marauders

In the middle of the final occurrence of a cosmic phenomenon known as an incursion, which caused the collision between the Earth and that of an alternate reality named Earth-616, Armor and a group of mutants, namely Jimmy Hudson, Mach Two, Quicksilver and Guardian, fell from their reality into Earth-616. When the Multiverse was eventually rebuilt, Hisako and these mutants became stranded in the Prime Earth, suffering from amnesia as a by-product of their transition from one reality to another.

Armor and the other foreign mutants were abducted by super-villain geneticist Miss Sinister, who brainwashed and turned them into her personal enforcers, the New Marauders. When Jimmy Hudson's natural resistance to telepathy allowed him to break free from Ms. Sinister's control and he went rogue,[3] the New Marauders were deployed to retrieve him. In the process, they confronted the young X-Men, who had tracked down Jimmy after he was detected by Cerebro.[4] Following a brief confrontation against the X-Men and Jimmy, during which Marvel Girl learned of Miss Sinister's involvement, the New Marauders were ordered by their superior to leave.[3]
