History:
(Quasar#14-16 - BTS) - The Weird Sisters were apparently released from their imprisonment on the Stranger's laboratory world during the struggle against the Overmind.

(Quasar#19 - BTS) - The Weird Sisters, returned to earth with the aid of Jack of Hearts, who led a convoy of freed inmates back to earth.

(Quasar#20) - Quasar took control of the convoy, and landed it in Siberia. Learning that the travelers were all humans, he allowed them to remain on earth.

(Quasar#21) - Posing as the nieces of Maelstrom in his guise as "Malcolm Stromberg", the Weird Sisters participated in his ambush upon Quasar and his friends, by hosting a party at the Stromberg manor. Truth used her psychic abilities to prevent Moondragon from warning Quasar of the trap.

(Quasar#22) - Having sliced off Quasar's hands so that he could obtain the Quantum Bands, Maelstrom explored the Bands with the aid of the Weird Sisters, and they enabled him to locate the Eonverse, where Eon resided.

(Quasar#23) - When Ghost Rider invaded Stromberg's mansion, the Weird Sisters went to guard Moondragon, Kayla Ballantine, and Ken Tanaka while the Minions fought Ghost Rider. Moondragon, finally having regained some control, fought back, and knocked out Charm and Beauty. Truth transformed her hands into blades and fought Moondragon, but was overpowered.

(Quasar#25) - After sending Kayla and Tanaka to safety with the Ghost Rider, Moondragon went to find Quasar and Makkari's bodies, but found herself face-to-face with the Weird Sisters again. The three of them released their powers, and again dulled her psychic abilities, but Moondragon defeated them in hand-to-hand combat.

(Fantastic Four Unlimited#10) - In an attempt to revive Maelstrom following his death battling Quasar, the Weird Sisters and Minions sought out Deviants who were not in Lemuria, planning to use their energies to revive Maelstrom. The Weird Sisters attacked Yrdisis, lover of Khoryphos in New York City, and simultaneously fought the Fantastic Four. Charm poisoned Khoryphos, nearly killing him, and escaped with Yrdisis. Next, with the Minions, they set after Kro at the Pyramid of the Winds, in an attempt to capture either him or his children, Donald and Deborah Ritter. Beauty and Helio disguised themselves as the Ritter twins, enabling the others to bring the twins back to aid Maelstrom. The Fantastic Four and Eternals soon discovered the deception, and set off for Malcolm Stromberg's mansion. They were too late to prevent Maelstrom from being revived, but when Maelstrom learnt he was feeding off the energies of his son Ransak, he allowed himself to shrink out of sight.
