(Agent X#2) - Outlaw was one of five mercs hired by the Culver Sport and Gun Club to compete in stealing the Punisher's guns (with Agent X, B-1, Bloc and the Scalpel). She and Agent X took out the other mercs, then Outlaw popped the tires on Taskmaster's car, leaving Alex without transportation as she left on the mission. Later, as Outlaw was about to snipe the Punisher, Agent X arrived and fought her. When the Punisher was gone, they stopped fighting and Outlaw took Alex to a cowboy bar and then to her apartment. Next morning, Outlaw cooked breakfast and the two agreed to go after Punisher together. They broke into his apartment, but he returned. The mercs explained what they'd been hired to do and Punisher took their weapons, clothes and car leaving them naked as he went to kill the Culver Sport and Gun Club.

(Agent X#3) - Outlaw went with Alex and Sandi to check out Alex's amusement park. Later the two were hired to protect a jewelry store that had been repeatedly robbed by the same criminals.

(Agent X#4) - Outlaw called Alex to tell him that the employer was pleased with their work.

(Agent X#6) - Taskmaster, Outlaw and Agent X split up to fight the mercenaries. Outlaw ran into Crossfire and the two had a showdown that resulted in Crossfire being shot in the eye, but Outlaw was also hurt. She and the others continued to fight until the next morning when they were finally triumphant and went to a restaurant to wait until it would be safe to go to a hospital without being found.

(Agent X#7) - When Alex proposed that they all form a team together, Outlaw told him that her father was sick and she needed to go back to Texas, and so she couldn't join Agency X.

(Agent X#14) - Inez attended memorial services for her father, then decided to leave Texas. Arriving at Sandi's apartment she found nobody home, but saw evidence that Sandi and Alex had slept together.

(Agent X#15) - Outlaw arrived at Alpine Park in time to witness a fight between Deadpool and Agent X and the Black Swan. Just as Swan was winning, Outlaw jumped in to save them.

The X-Men failed to stop them which led to the escape of Outlaw and other 198 members alongside Domino and Shatterstar in a cloaked aircraft.

(Civil War: X-Men#2 - BTS) - Outlaw and the other escapees arrived at a base in the Nevada Desert that became their new home.

(Civil War: X-Men#3) - Johnny D, who was taking orders from General Lazer, took over Outlaw and threatened to shoot Domino, but Domino's luck saved her from getting shot (Outlaw pulled the trigger, but the pistol didn't work) and Toad jumped her. Outlaw came to her senses again and wondered why Toad was over her. Soon afterwards General Lazer actvitated from his office a self-destruct protocol in the Nevada Desert base to kill everyone within it.

(Civil War: X-Men#4) - Outlaw wanted to know what was happening outside, but the Internet was down and all outside cameras were dead because all communication lines to the outside were closed. Outlaw sent everyone at the base's door away from it shortly before it was blown open by the combined efforts of Cyclops, Bishop, the Sentinel Squad and Iron Man. Outlaw and the other mutants left the base and were brought to safety by helicopters and Sentinels before the base detonated.

Outlaw's apartment was decorated with images of her ancestor the Outlaw Kid.

Outlaw's relationship to the Outlaw Kid was finally identified in X-Men: The 198 Files.

Outlaw wears a wig and Alex was not happy to learn that it wasn't the only thing she had that wasn't real.
