(X-Men I#98) - Bonnie and her then husband Chris Claremont were enjoying the Rockefeller Plaza christmas tree, unaware they were in the company of the X-Men, Nick Fury and Valentina de la Fontaine. Also: what looked like a Doctor Doom impersonator was iceskating on the rink outside 30 Rock. They witnessed a strange hurricane-like storm floating above the Rockefeller Center, unaware Storm was fighting a Sentinel.

(X-Men I#105) - Bonnie and Paty Cockrum were enjoying a nice day near Washington Square Park while Chris and Dave were plotting the latest issue of the X-Men comic. The girls were then surprised when Firelord came crashing towards them. The former herald of Galactus was fighting Phoenix and after recovering from her blow, took off in a blaze. All this didn't seem to disturb Claremont, who kept telling Cockrum about his ideas, while Dave dragged him along, telling Chris to shut up and run.

(Iron Fist I#15) - Bonnie and Chris attended a party thrown by Jean Grey and Misty Knight that got off to a bit of a rocky start when Wolverine arrived early and caught Misty's friend Iron Fist entering the apartment. Figuring he was a burglar, Logan tried to stop him and the two trashed most of the place in the process. That didn't prevent Bonnie, her then husband Chris and Dave and Paty Cockrum from having a good time, mingling with the X-Men and their associates like Moira MacTaggert and Lilandra Neramani.

(Uncanny X-Men I#123) - Bonnie and Chris were walking the streets of Greenwich Village when they were startled by the sudden appearance of Spider-Man. The wallcrawler had spotted Cyclops and Colleen Wing strolling near Bonnie and Chris and decided to drop in and say hi.
