Nothing is known about the girl known as Matchstick Girl, save that she was a Morlock teenager and friends with two other girls named Poser and Carapace.

The three girls met Wolverine and Beast of the X-Men when the pair rescued them from a Sentinel alongside their fellow Morlocks Ape and Marrow, although Carapace was injured by shrapnel from falling debris in the struggle. Beast operated on her to save her using Wolverine's claws, with Matchstick Girl providing the light.


Upon contact with oxygen, Matchstick Girl's hands spontaneously burst into flame, which she was immune to. She kept them bandaged at most times to avoid this.
