History:

(Foxfire#3 (fb) - BTS) - Having lived about three centuries, life had become a little boring for Jack Dancer, although he had learnt a lot, and even found out about the giant celestial body, the Godwheel. Eventually he became aware of missing children with powers, connecting them to the villainous Mourning Star, secretly a cyborg from an apocalyptic future (Earth-95431), who sought the life essence of ultras to sustain herself.

(Foxfire#1) - Dancer threw himself into another brawl in a bar.

(Foxfire#3) - Mourning Star had her agents capture him to stop his interference and began torturing him to see how much pain his immortal physique could stand. Later, he was left strung up by his wrists, where the human ultra-alien hybrid Foxfire and the ultra Mustang, fleeing their cells, found and released him. Dancer told Foxfire that another victim was calling for her (actually her cyborg father). However, Custodian robot guards arrived to apprehend them; Foxfire and Mustang tore through them until more powerful Tradesmen aliens (allied with Mourning Star) also arrived. All three escaped to a transmat platform, where Dancer plotted an escape to the Godwheel, but damage caused it to misdirect them to Earth-616 in the middle of a firefight in New York between the Punisher and mobsters.

(Foxfire#4) - Mourning Star and several Tradesmen aliens soon followed Foxfire and her friends, but Mustang was killed. While Foxfire destroyed Mourning Star, Dancer and Punisher overcame the two remaining Tradesmen. After teleporting Punisher away, Foxfire explained that her full powers were now unlocked. This left Dancer surprised and she returned back to Earth-93060 using her own powers and took Dancer with her, intending to free the remaining ultra children prisoners.
