History: (X-Force/Champions Annual 1998 (fb) - BTS) - Posing as a human known as the Link, the Olympian god Pluto established a cult  to worship him, calling it the Cult of Hades. The cult members, some of them mutants, looked to the Link for leadership, and he led them towards reviving the massive Titans in a plot to get revenge on the defunct Champions, who had once defeated him. He promised cult member Victoria glory at his side if she posed as a traitor and contacted Pluto's rival, Hercules, for aid.

(X-Force/Champions Annual 1998) - On the eve of their triumph, the Link informed the Cult that there was a traitor among them, and revealed Victoria to be it. As one Titan began to rise, a large hand sticking out of the Earth, Hercules attacked and began destroying the Cult's temple and fighting against Link, who threatened the life of Victoria if Hercules didn't back down. Members of X-Force attacked and saved Victoria, sending the Cult fleeing. The heroic members of X-Force and the Champions fought Pluto at the site of the Titan's rising, but they sent Pluto fleeing and cast a spell to put the Titan back to sleep. Victoria was later arrested.
