History: (X-Statix I#10 (fb)) - Gin Genie was present with X-Force when Edie Sawyer first met Zeitgeist.

(X-Force I#116 (fb)) - Gin Genie participated in a stealth mission in North Africa with X-Force. 

(X-Force I#116 (fb) - BTS) - X-Force team leader Zeitgeist reviewed footage of X-Force's North African mission and made a note to have Gin Genie review her alcohol mix, as the tremors she generated during the mission nearly killed the entire team.

(X-Force I#120 (fb) - BTS) - Zeitgeist continued reviewing footage of Gin Genie and the rest of X-Force in action alongside the Coach, who informed Zeitgeist of their investor's idea to kill off most of the team and replace them with newcomers.




(X-Force I#116) - Suffering from anxiety, Gin Genie got into an argument with her fellow teammates, claiming she hated them all and could not go outside to a press conference. Battering Ram tried to calm Gin Genie and la Nuit suggested she drink some coffee, take her medication, do her breathing exercises and go to the bathroom, and if that failed, he could generate a small field of darkness to obscure the unfortunate blotches on her skin. Zeitgeist then suggested it might be best to not have Gin Genie go to the press conference at all but a panicky Gin Genie exclaimed that Zeitgeist was trying to destroy her fan base, to which U-Go Girl replied that claiming to be a fan of Gin Genie was like posting your Alcoholics Anonymous file on the internet. Gin Genie then rushed at U-Go Girl, cursing her, but she was calmed by Plazm, who used his liquid form to cover Gin Genie, causing her body to release more endorphins. Gin Genie was later present at an X-Force mission briefing where the Coach informed them that they were to rescue boy band Boyz R Us from armed gunmen. Following the briefing, Gin Genie joined X-Force in New York to rescue Boyz R Us but during the mission, she was killed when a helicopter fired on the team.

(X-Force I#120 - BTS) - Images of Gin Genie were merchandised along with the rest of X-Force, with one image of her alongside the X-Force team being turned into an expensive crystal print that X-Force team owner Spike Freeman shattered with a sledgehammer. New X-Force leader Orphan later reviewed the footage of Zeitgeist discussing killing off Gin Genie and the rest of the team with the Coach.

(X-Men Icons: Chamber#1 - BTS) - When the X-Man Chamber went undercover at a college, his roommate Walter showed Chamber televised footage of Gin Genie with X-Force to explain to Chamber how mutants were considered celebrities.

Gin Genie had a profile in Marvel Encyclopedia HC Vol. 2: X-Men (2003).

For those interested, Gin Genie's original intended codename was going to be the Alcholist, which was seen in some preview sketches from Wizard's website...

I assume that "Gin" is some kind of play on the word "Djinn."
