History:
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island" - BTS) - Along many other mutants, Feral 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") - Feral, Aurora, Domino 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. Feral 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") - Feral, Blob, Warpath and many other slave-workers were shocked when the X-Men returned, successfully deactivating the power-dampening collars. Freed, Feral 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 - "Graduation Day") - Feral and other former slave-workers built their own civilization on Genosha. Attracting many other mutants as time went on, amongst them Magneto who they viewed as their leader.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Graduation Day") - From Genosha, Feral, Sunfire, Tusk and several other mutants watched the televised debate between Henry Gyrich and Charles Xavier over the "mutant containment bill". Worldwide viewers were shocked when Gyrich attacked Xavier, used an energy disruptor to reveal Xavier's mutant nature to the world. Enraged even one such as Xavier would be attacked on television, Sunfire rallied the Genoshan mutants to stand besides Magneto and declare war on humankind.

   As time went on the world saw many localized mutant uprisings which caused the impatient Sunfire to complain against Feral wondering when their enigmatic leader Magneto would finally lead them into war against humankind. Then, moments later Magneto addressed his people and calling all mutants from around the world to stand beside them.

   However, the X-Men also picked up the message which led them to send a small strike team consisting of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Wolverine to try and persuade Magneto to stop. During the night Feral and Sunfire noticed suspicious movement in the encampment, discovering the X-Men. However, because it was night, both Feral and Sunfire didn't recognize the mutant heroes and interrogated them until Magneto appeared again which allowed the X-Men to sneak away. The X-Men successfully reached Magneto after which they revealed Charles Xavier was dying and could be saved if he'd help them send a message to Shi'ar empress Lilandra. Determined to help Xavier, Magneto called off the impending mutant war and left with the X-Men.

(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#3 - BTS) - Feral was one of the many mutants to join the Clear Mountain Institute to live in harmony in their isolated community. However, Feral and similar mutants like Leech and Sauron whose physical mutation made them undesirable in the eyes of the Shadow King were confined and hidden away in the catacombs of Clear Mountain, dubbed the Rej-X.

(X-Men '92 I#3 (fb) - BTS) - Imprisoned in the catacombs of Clear Mountains the Rej-X were forced to strip down old Sentinels for parts in exchange for food. The Rej-X were unaware Nova had been building the X-Sentinel, built from the parts in a plan to kill Baron Kelly and become the Baroness of Westchester herself.

(X-Men '92 I#3 - BTS) - Learning the X-Men had come to investigate the Clear Mountain Institute, Rej-X's Leech and Artie Maddicks decided to try and attract the X-Men's attention in the hopes of being rescued.

(X-Men '92 I#3) - Artie Maddicks used his mutant abilities to project a telepathic hologram of himself with it he searched for the X-Men. Unbeknownst to the Rej-X, all of the X-Men except for Jubilee were trapped by Cassandra Nova's Mind Field. Artie, nonetheless managed to find Jubilee who followed the hologram and used her lock-picking skills to open the Rej-X's "prison". Feral, Caliban, Sauron and several other mutants of the Rej-X were shocked to see Jubilee, fearing she could've been sent by Nova to punish them. While Feral opted to eat the girl Leech quickly revealed he and Artie had brought her so she could help them.

(X-Men '92 I#4) - When properly introduced Jubilee learned that while she'd managed to open the door it had been closed shut again, however, moments later Clear Mountain guards arrived to banish the X-Man Beast with them, having failed Nova's Mind Field. Chamber and Feral showed both X-Men the Clear Mountain basement where the Rej-X had been put to work to strip down old Sentinels for parts revealing they'd heard chatter over project X-Sentinel.

(X-Men '92 I#5 - BTS) - The Clear Mountain Institute came under attack by X-Force who'd came to rescue the X-Men. X-Force's Deadpool then freed Feral, the Rej-X and X-Men Beast and Jubilee.

(X-Men '92 I#6) - Deadpool returned Feral, the Rej-X and X-Men Beast and Jubilee to X-Force. 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 the 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) - Feral 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, Feral 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 Feral 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.

(Infinity Wars: Sleepwalker#3) - When Reality-616 was folded in half by Gamora using the Infinity Stones one being proved to be immune, the Sleepwalker. On a quest trough the Infinity Stones he managed to locate the Man-Thing Thang Thoom, dragon protector of the Nexus within the Soul World. Together they travelled past other realities seeing a glimpse of Feral and mutantkind fighting Xodus the Forgotten.

I'm unable to locate Feral's voice actress. Although some online sources claim there is none, she was voiced when Feral was talking with Jubilee.

Secret Wars saw the return of the X-Men The Animated Series reality as one of the forty-one domains of Battleworld in Secret Wars. First released as an eight-part digital Infinite Comic the series was later reprinted as a four-issue printed series. Following it's success a second X-Men '92 was released which saw the reality of Earth-92131 fully restored.
