Powers/Abilities: Terra-X possesses the metamutant ability to psionically manipulate molecules of rock and earth, allowing her to transform her very body into "rocks and dust" and "join with the earth" as well as use the earth itself as a weapon against her enemies. Terra-X was also skilled in the use of her long-handled axe. Her metamutant abilities were supposedly amplified after she was implanted with one of the Brood aliens.
(Assassins #1) - Terra-X was mentioned as the alleged metamutant
daughter of assassin Dare (Slade
(JLX #?) - During the
"AGE OF DOOMSDAY" crossover, new revelations
concerning Terra-X came to light.
Exciting X-Patrol #1 (bts)) - Following the "AGE OF DOOMSDAY", "bad girl"
Terra-X joined Niles Cable's team of
doomed metamutants known as the
X-Patrol. Unbeknownst to the team,
however, Terra-X was a traitor. On one mission (presumably a mission
that X-Patrol member Shatterstarfire (Princess Koriand'r
of Tamojoran) was not involved with), Terra-X revealed her true
allegiances and delivered her X-Patrol teammates into the hands of their
enemy, X-Stroke the Eliminator.
The X-Patrol was nearly wiped out by X-Stroke, but they narrowly escaped
in the end.
(The Exciting X-Patrol #1 (bts)) - Some time later, on the
island-nation of Zenosha, Shatterstarfire
saw Terra-X captured by the alien
Brood and subsequently "changed into
rocks and dust" (although this may have merely been Terra-X using her metamutant
power). Deeply troubled by what she saw, Shatterstarfire returned to
Zenosha with Niles Cable on a two-person crusade to rescue Terra-X from her
(The Exciting X-Patrol #1) - "The Curse of Brother Brood!"
- In the fetid underground caverns beneath Zenosha, Niles Cable was overpowered
by the Broodlings while joining Shatterstarfire on her crusade to rescue
Terra-X from the Brood. Shatterstarfire retreated to
Manhattan in order to enlist the aid
of her X-Patrol teammates and rescue Niles. When Shatterstarfire and
the rest of X-Patrol later returned to the caverns beneath Zenosha, they
witnessed Brother Brood presiding over
the ceremony in which Terra-X was implanted with a Broodling.
from the Brood Pit, Terra-X was instructed
by Brother Brood to attack the infidels who desecrated her holy rebirth.
Terra-X readily complied and attacked the X-Patrol, vowing to deliver them
into the hands of Brother Brood just as she had delivered them into the hands
of X-Stroke the Eliminator earlier. Terra-X used her metamutant power
to hold the X-Patrol at bay with a shower of rocks. Eyeing
Jericho (Niles Dayspring), the newest
member of the X-Patrol who had joined the team after Terra-X's original betrayal,
Terra-X questioned if he was supposed to be her "replacement" and was about
to attack Jericho with the blade of her axe. But before Terra-X could
make contact with Jericho, X-Patrol member
Elasti-Girl (Janet Van Dyne) shrunk down
to a miniature size and entered Terra-X's ear canal, causing painful inner
ear damage that put the traitorous metamutant out of action.

In the "Last Writes" letter column in ASSASSINS #1, editor Kevin Berganza revealed that Dare the Terminator's alleged metamutant daughter, Terra-X was "still running around" and that new revelations concerning her would crop up either in the ASSASSINS series itself or in the "AGE OF DOOMSDAY" crossover taking place in the JLX series. Terra-X later went on to join and betray the X-Patrol. Her fate after the events of THE EXCITING X-PATROL #1 remains unknown.
