History: (X-Force#117)- The team viewed a video on Saint Anna's origin showing how she was born to an Irish mother and Argentinian father in Buenos Aires, and how during adolescence she had followers as though she were a saint, which is where her codename came from. She later joined the team and was present at their press conference at which they were attacked by the former X-Force team.

(X-Force#118-119)- Saint Anna was present on the mission to save Paco Perez. U-Go Girl teleported the team into the cell holding Paco and during the battle, Saint Anna was mortally wounded. She then made the Orphan promise to give her father the ring her mother gave her and proceeded to transform into a gaseous form and enter Guy's lungs. When Guy arrived in Buenos Aires, he sneezed, releasing the remains of Saint Anna on her father and she told him goodbye, so to speak, as she passed on.

Comments: Created by Peter Milligan and Michael Allred.

I always thought that of all the quickly dying X-Force members, she was the one with the most potential.
