(The Phoenix Resurrection: Aftermath (fb) - BTS) -
Discovering Earth held the Theta Virus that spawned superhumans but was
lethal to their own race, the alien Progeny dispatched a massive armada
to raze and destroy the Earth. It arrived almost five decades later,
killing billions of humans, including most superhumans ("ultras") with
only a handful surviving, including the clawed woman Ferret.
(The Phoenix Resurrection: Aftermath) - The
alien-human hybrid Foxfire, considered one of Earth's last hopes and
brought back through time, was introduced to the remaining Earth forces
under the command of President Glorianna Mundi. Foxfire revealed the
treachery of adviser the Entity, who teleported away. An assault was
quickly mounted against Progeny forces in near orbit around the Earth led
by Night Man using a conduit sliced through space-time. Most of the
humans, Dragoons and ultras surged forward with incredibly high losses
while a smaller assault team targeted the mothership.
(The Phoenix Resurrection: Aftermath - BTS) - Ferret
was not seen again and was very likely an early casualty.

So how did she get Wolverine-like powers (claws and
hair anyway) set about 50 years in the future in an alternate version
of the Ultraverse? Is this a result of secret cloning technology during
the X-Men's brief visit(s) to the Ultraverse? Did Logan get frisky in
Ultraverse behind the scenes and Ferret is the offspring? Is this hero
emulation? The uniform is too close to be coincidental. This was in the
closing months of the Ultraverse, with many people involved in a rush
to get the books out, so it's a pity her background story was not
fleshed out more.
