(Uncanny X-Men I#210 - BTS) - Shunned by society, the girl known only as Tommy joined the underground misfits known as the Morlocks at some unrevealed point in the past.

(Uncanny X-Men I#210 (fb) - BTS) - Tommy was a Morlock who left the Alley with her friends in serach of adventure in the world above. However, they were pursued by the Marauders and all of Tommy's friends were killed. Richard Salmons, an agent of the Hellfire Club, came to Tommy's defense in Los Angeles.

(Uncanny X-Men I#210) - As Tommy and Salmons fled the Marauders at a train yard, Richard was shot in the back. Tommy wanted to stay with him, but he told her to run, and died when the Marauders caught up to him. Tommy slid into a train car by becoming thin, and rode the train back east. When she finally got out in Manhattan, intending to return to the Alley, she found the Marauders already waiting for her, and they killed her.

(Uncanny X-Men I#529 - BTS) - X-Men's Danger used a hologram of Tommy and the Morlocks during Scalphunter's rehabilitation in a special virtual reality scenario where she forced him to relive the Morlock Massacre. However, in this scenario the deceased Tommy explained everything was going to be okay, somehow offering a scenario in which the Morlocks had forgiven the assassin. Before Danger could see the scenario play out she was interrupted by Madison Jeffries.

(Elektra III#3 - BTS) - When assassin Cape Crow targeted Scalphunter he learned of the man's past and witnessed Tommy as one of Scalphunter's victims.


(Hellions#1 - BTS) - Following the Krakoan resurrection protocols, Tommy was among the many mutants resurrected by the Five (Egg, Elixir, Proteus, Hope Summers, Tempus). Tommy was one of many who accepted the invitation to remain on the sovereign mutant island nation, ruled by the Quiet Council.

(Hellions#1) - Learning Scalphunter of the Marauders was also living on Krakoa, Tommy met up with her fellow resurrected Morlocks friends to confront the assassin on the the anniversary of the mutant massacre. However, during the confrontation, Scalphunter showed no remorse and assembled a large assault weapon prompting Callisto to send Tommy and the others to kill him noting that whoever would fall would be reborn. Tommy and the others were presumably killed and subsequently resurrected. To punish Scalphunter for his actions he was grafted onto Mr Sinister's Hellions team amongst other undesirables.

(Hellions#10 - BTS) - When the Hellions were captured by Arcade and Mastermind, Scalphunter was submerged into a scenario where he killed a group of civilians in a war. However, the civilians then changed into the Morlocks, Scalphunter was shocked to see Tommy, Ape, Cybelle, Erg, Masque and others dead. However, Tommy and Cybelle turned into blood-thirsty zombies who then fed on Scalphunter.

(Inferno II#1 - BTS) - Tommy was grafted onto X-Factor to become one of their recon agents.

(Inferno II#1 (fb) - BTS) - When it was discovered that Orchis had placed an observation team in Paris to keep track of a specific gate used by Moira MacTaggert, another Krakoan gate was placed at the exact same location but on another level of the building to throw Orchis off. In addition, Tommy was stationed in another building and tasked to observe the Orchis team.

(Inferno II#1) - Tommy was keeping tabs on the Orchis observation team when they finally realized foul play. Tommy quickly alarmed Sage.

Comments: Created by Chris Claremont, John Romita, Jr. and Dan Green.

It's amazing to see Tommy has finally reappeared in the pages of X-Men again it only took 34 years! If you're like me you probably grew up watching Tommy in the X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon where her physical mutation was really striking.

Having Hickman use Tommy as a recon agent makes perfect sense as her ability to turn thin as paper would be really useful to get close and keep tabs on targets. It does, however, make one wonder who else would have powers that could make them beneficial to work as a recon agent for X-Force, some suggestions: Specter, a former Xavier Institute student, who has the ability to become a living shadow, quite useful. Stealth, a mutant mercenary who avoids detection by radar and other electronic means, specializing in reconnaissance. Pulse, former friend of Mystique who produces disruptor fields and pulses to scramble and disable electronic systems as well as being an experienced thief. Ooh one could speculate all day!
