(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Repo Man" (fb) - BTS) - Snowbird was drafted onto Canada's premiere superhero team by General Chasen of Department H. They became known as Alpha Flight, consisting of Aurora, Northstar, Puck, Sasquatch, Shaman, Vindicator and Wolverine.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Repo Man" (fb) - BTS) - Wolverine left Alpha Flight for unknown reasons, moving to the United States where he joined the X-Men.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Repo Man" (fb) - BTS) - The years following Wolverine's defection, Department H and General Chasen repeatedly tried to duplicate the process that gave Wolverine his Adamantium skeleton. With the results less than encouraging, Chasen planned to bring Wolverine "home" to examine the mutant. Chasen contacted Alpha Flight, falsely promising to get Wolverine back so he could work with Alpha Flight again. To do so Heather Hudson asked Wolverine to come and meet her in the Canadian wilderness.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Repo Man") - Snowbird and the full force of Alpha Flight witnessed Wolverine's arrival and confronted him. Believing he'd fallen into a trap Wolverine attacked his former teammates who quickly retaliated. During the battle that followed Snowbird attacked Wolverine while transformed as a snow-owl but plummeted into the ground when Wolverine threw sand in her eyes. Wolverine then saved Snowbird from a falling tree which had been destroyed by Vindicator. Not long after the siblings Aurora and Northstar managed to slow Wolverine down long enough for Puck and Sasquatch to strike and take him out. Alpha Flight then brought Wolverine to Department H where General Chasen and Heather Hudson waited to examine the mutant while the team was forced to wait outside.

    Curious to learn what they were doing with Wolverine, Snowbird and the others waited outside the lab, eavesdropping, the team learned Chasen wished to remove Wolverine's Adamantium. Appalled, Snowbird and Alpha Flight burst into the lab but were countered by Department H's security androids. As the fight went on, Wolverine managed to free himself and after destroying several androids and chase off General Chasen, tried to flee but was stopped by Vindicator who'd kept a grudge ever since Wolverine's defection. Vindicator tried to stop Wolverine but when Wolverine tried to kill the team's leader he was stopped by Heather Hudson. Promised to spare his life, Wolverine threatened to other members of Alpha Flight he wouldn't hold back if they came after him. Snowbird and the others watched as Wolverine left Department H.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "The Phoenix Saga - Part V: Child of Light") - When Earth suffered a multitude of environmental disasters, Snowbird and Alpha Flight did their best to help the people of Earth. They were seen saving people near ruins in Athens, Greece during a powerful storm. Snowbird, like other heroes of Earth was unaware the disasters were the result of the Shi'ar emperor D'ken using the M'kraan Crystal.

Snowbird was voiced by Melissa Sue Anderson.

When, in 2015's Secret Wars, the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets it appeared as if Reality-92131 was drafted onto Battleworld as the Westchester domain. All Earth-92131 profiles on the Marvel Appendix reflected that information, however, this has since been debunked with the news that the original X-Men: The Animated Series will receive a brand new season to pick up where the original series ended. As such the reality seen in two volumes of X-Men '92 (2015-2017) now have their own reality-designation. The X-Men '92: House of XCII 2022 series was inspired by both the animated series and Hickman's House of X run but is its own separate reality. Nearly thirty years after X-Men: The Animated Series first debuted the new season will appear on Disney+ in fall 2023.
