History: (Spectacular Spider-Man Annual#8 (fb) - BTS) - At some point in her life, Juniper became a servant of the Celestials, and took up residence aboard their Mothership. She became the instructor to 6 of the Young Gods: Sea Witch, Highnote, Brightsword, Splice, Mindsinger and Daydreamer, and taught them in offensive combat.

(Spectacular Spider-Man Annual#8) - While Juniper and Katos hosted a training session for the Young Gods aboard the Mothership, they were spied upon by the High Evolutionary, and Daydreamer learned of his plans for humanity. Daydreamer was determined to oppose him, and all of Juniper's students agreed with her. Highnote teleported the six of them and Juniper to Earth to fight the High Evolutionary and Juniper watched her pupils from the sidelines. Katos soon came after them with his pupils, and the conflict finally came to an end when Daydreamer accidentally harmed Calculus with her powers. Juniper, Katos and the 12 Young Gods returned to the Mothership.

(Marvel Comics Presents#101) - When Sea Witch had a prophetic dream, causing many of the Young Gods to feel that they should return to Earth, Katos and Juniper informed them that they would have to bring their request to the Celestials themselves.

(Marvel Comics Presents#102) - Juniper and Katos led the Young Gods to the Celestials where they presented their case, and were ultimately allowed to visit Earth.
