History:
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Night of the Sentinels - Part I") - Seen near the scene of a crime, Domino was caught on camera when a local news station reported on the case, questioning the strange woman's connection to it. The story was played in the X-Men's control room alongside similar stories about Cannonball and Sabretooth as the X-Men would keep track of all mutant sightings.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island" - BTS) - Along many other mutants, Domino was apprehended and imprisoned on Genosha. Outfitted with power-dampening collars to prevent them from using their mutant abilities the imprisoned mutants were made to work as slave-workers to complete a dam which would power a Sentinel factory.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island") - Domino, Feral, Aurora and other slave-workers were in for a shock when three of the X-Men: Storm, Gambit and Jubilee were also imprisoned and forced to work alongside them. However, when the Magistrates deactivated the collars Storm immediately tried to escape and was quickly rendered immobile by a Sentinel and placed in the "box" (isolation). Not long after, the slave-workers once again stopped work when the Magistrates noticed a fire in the nearby forest (courtesy of time traveler Cable), to be safe all slave-workers were returned to their cells.

   That night, the slave-workers were woken by the optimistic Jubilee, who escaped her cell and urged the mutants to join an uprising. Domino and the others refused, believing they would be released when the work on the dam was finished. However, the following morning morale had shifted as the mutants told Jubilee they would join the uprising. Sadly Jubilee's uprising failed when she proved unable to deactivate the power-dampening collars.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island" - BTS) - The following day, Gambit acquired the power-dampening collars' key, freed his friends and together agreed to free the slave-workers.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island") - Domino, Blob, Avalanche and many other slave-workers were shocked when the X-Men returned, successfully deactivating the power-dampening collars. Freed, Domino and the others joined the X-Men in their fight against the Magistrates and Sentinels. Having defeated them, Jubilee urged the former slaves to help them deal with the Sentinel factory. Sunfire, speaking for the former slaves refused reminding her of their last failed uprising and explained they would take over Genosha as a whole after which they left. To deal with the Sentinel factory, Storm then summoned a powerful storm causing the dam to collapse and destroy the factory.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Repo Man") - When Jean Grey used Cerebro to search for the missing Charles Xavier she telepathically reached several mutants, amongst them Domino, Nightcrawler, Archangel, Cannonball, Psylocke, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.

(Secret Wars#1 - BTS) - When the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets, Doctor Doom, using the Beyonders' powers, created Battleworld a patchwork of different realities. Among those domains was Earth-92131, now called the Westchester domain, ruled by former President Kelly who was appointed by Doom to become the domain's Baron.

(X-Men '92 I#4 - BTS) - Domino joined Cable's militant X-Force alongside Archangel, Bishop, Deadpool and Psylocke.

(X-Men '92 I#5 (fb) - BTS) - X-Force fought and defeated Fitzroy after which they handed him over to Baron Kelly. Fitzroy was turned over to the Clear Mountain Institute to be subjected to the institute's psychotherapy "The Mind Field" to change him into an outstanding role model.

(X-Men '92 I#4 (fb) - BTS) - When Charles Xavier was attacked by the Shadow King he sent a psychic distress call which was picked up by Cable. Domino and X-Force decided to investigate.

(X-Men '92 I#4) - Domino and X-Force arrived near the X-Mansion and quickly located Xavier, who'd seemingly perished.

(X-Men '92 I#5) - Upon examining Xavier's lifeless body, Psylocke learned Xavier was still alive. Domino and X-Force then searched Xavier's computer for clues and found Xavier was researching the Clear Mountain Institute as his X-Men had gone to investigate the Institute. X-Force decided to go and locate the X-Men while Psylocke stayed behind to revive Xavier. Arriving near the Clear Mountain Institute, X-Force was welcomed by the rehabilitated Fitzroy, Wildside and Reaper. Unwilling to believe the former villains, X-Force attacked them and the base in the hopes of finding the X-Men. Meanwhile Psylocke was able to revive Xavier and learned that Clear Mountain Institute's leader Cassandra Nova (used as a host by the Shadow King) wanted to assassinate Baron Kelly. In reality the Shadow King had become aware of other X-Men inhabiting Battleworld's domains who were plagued by hardship and catastrophe, fearing that their domain was too fragile he set out to ensure their survival by changing the X-Men and other dangerous mutants into proper role models as to not attract the wrath of Doom and replace Kelly as Baroness of Westchester in the process.

(X-Men '92 I#6) - While Psylocke and the revived Xavier warned Baron Kelly, X-Force resumed their fight against the Clear Mountain Institute. Once X-Force had defeated the Institute's guards Deadpool returned with X-Men Beast, Jubilee and a group of mutants he'd freed from Clear Mountain, the Rej-X, mutants with psychical mutations which made them undesirable in the eyes of the Shadow King. Both X-Force and the Rej-X were then surprised when Cassandra Nova herself appeared with the "rehabilitated" Wolverine, Rogue and Gambit, rechristening them her New X-Men. Refusing to fight X-Force, Nova revealed she'd send her X-Sentinel (build from deactivated Sentinels) to kill Baron Kelly in X-Force's name, certain she would become Westchester's next Baroness once Doom would see all of her good work. Nova then turned her attention to the Rej-X, urging them to attack and defeat X-Force for the chance of becoming one of Doom's Thors. Intrigued by the opportunity the Rej-X attacked X-Force, during the fight Feral took on Domino. The battle was halted by the return of X-Men Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey who'd escaped Nova's Mindscape. In an effort to save Baron Kelly from the X-Sentinel Storm rallied X-Force, Rej-X, Nova's rehabilitated New X-Men and other mutants from Clear Mountain to help them.

(X-Men '92 I#7) - X-Force and the other mutants arrived near the X-Museum to stop the X-Sentinel. However, Storm ordered X-Force to ensure Baron Kelly's safety while the X-Men and others fought the X-Sentinel. But just as X-Factor led Baron Kelly to the X-Men's Blackbird, Nova attacked.

(X-Men '92 I#8) - In the end, Xavier managed to banish the Shadow King with help from Cable, Psylocke and Jean Grey. The X-Sentinel was then destroyed by Jubilee with help from Gambit. With the threat subsided, Domino and X-Force followed the X-Men to the X-Mansion.

(X-Men '92 I#8 - BTS) - X-Force welcomed both Feral and Shatterstar into their ranks.

(X-Men '92 I#8) - When Charles Xavier decided to open the X-Mansion as a school for new generations of mutants he offered X-Force a place to stay. Both Bishop and Psylocke decided to leave X-Force and join the X-Men while Domino and the others decided to stay a separate group and left.

(Secret Wars#9 - BTS) - Earth-92131 along with all other domains of Battleworld were returned to their former state after the defeat of Doom.

(X-Men '92 II#9 (fb) - BTS) - Learning Apocalypse was still alive X-Force set out to find and kill the ancient mutant.

(X-Men '92 II#9) - Cable and his X-Force located Apocalypse who, joined by his "disciples", had sought out X-Factor and the X-Men on the abandoned Lilapalooza music festival. Unbeknownst to the X-Men, Apocalypse had learned of the banished Celestial, Xodus the Forgotten who was set to return to their dimension to destroy Earth, fearing mutantkind would someday ascend the Celestials. Apocalypse had been training the X-Men all these years in the hopes of defeating the Celestial, however, when the X-Men had used the Darkhold to permanently remove the vampire-curse on Earth, it had weakened edges of space allowing Xodus to return. When Cable and his X-Force appeared they shot Apocalypse in the chest, seemingly killing him.

(X-Men '92 II#10) - President Kelly and Xavier ordered the X-Men and X-Factor to stop X-Force and rescue Apocalypse. After things had calmed down Apocalypse revealed his plan to activate the latent x-gene in all humans to create a world full of mutants to stop Xodus. Apocalypse had originally planned to use S.W.O.R.D.'s alien technology to construct a device to do so but with the Peak down it was X-Men student Dead Girl who suggested they use the Darkhold to do so. Apocalypse and Xavier agreed after which Xavier telepathically reached out to all of humankind asking for their help. When millions of humans replied Xavier's message to have their latent x-gene activated and join the fight against Xodus, Dead Girl with Xavier's help used the Darkhold to do so, although Xavier gave his life in the process. Domino then joined millions of mutants in the fight against Xodus.
