Powers/Abilities: Wildside is a mutant with the ability to psychically disrupt an individuals sense of reality.
(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#2 - BTS) - Following the Westchester Wars, the Bureau of Super-Powers established the Clear Mountain Institute, a rehab facility designed to help mutants re-enter society. The institute was led by Cassandra Nova, a female clone of Charles Xavier who was used as a host by the Shadow King. 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#5 - BTS) - Wildside was one of the many mutants to join the Clear Mountain Institute to live in harmony in their isolated community. Wildside supposedly went through the institute's psychotherapy "The Mind Field".
(X-Men '92 I#5) - The rehabilitated Wildside, Reaper and Fitzroy welcomed the militant X-Force who'd travelled to the Clear Mountain Institute after learning Charles Xavier had been attacked and the X-Men missing. Wildside and the others urged X-Force there was no need for violence reminding them the Westchester Wars had ended. Unwilling to believe the former villains, X-Force attacked them and the base in the hopes of finding the X-Men.
(Secret Wars#9 - BTS) - Earth-92131 along with all other domains of Battleworld were returned to their former state in the defeat of Doom.

On Earth-616, Wildside is part of the Mutant Liberation Front and although the group itself didn't appear in X-Men: The Animated Series, Forearm, Reaper and Strobe did as well as former leader Stryfe.
Secret Wars saw the return of X-Men The Animates 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.
The Westchester Wars was a five-year long conflict when Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants declared war on humanity. Thanks to the X-Men's heroic actions the world finally learned not all mutants were a threat, realizing peaceful coexistence between homo sapiens and homo superior was possible. This coalition was more than Magneto could handle and as his anger grew so did his Brotherhood, until finally, total chaos erupted in Westchester.
