History: (Uncanny X-Men I#211 - BTS) - Through unrevealed circumstances, the mutant who would become known as Cybelle was cast out of regular society. She found and joined the Morlocks, an underground mutant community who made a home for themselves in the sewer tunnels of New York.

(Uncanny X-Men I#211) - When Mr. Sinister ordered his henchmen, the Marauders, to the Alley to exterminate the Morlocks, Cybelle and her friends were attacked by Arclight, Harpoon, Riptide, Scalphunter, Scrambler and Vertigo. Even though she was surprised by their attack, Cybelle was the only one of her group to survive the initial onslaught, escaping with an arm injury. Fighting against her pain and tears, Cybelle managed to use her acid to burn her way to safety. As she made her way through massive stone, Cybelle yelled out for Callisto, hoping her screams would reach the Alley's inner circle. However, Arclight used her vibrational powers to collapse the tunnels, making Cybelle an easy target for Harpoon, whose energy lances killed her. Cybelle's warnings did reach Callisto, who was busy gathering the Morlocks to counterattack. Despite the X-Men's aid, they didn't fare too much better than Cybelle.
