History:

(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 the 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.
