(X-Men '92 Infinite Comic#1 - BTS) - After Professor Charles Xavier opened the Xavier Institute to the public, Paige Guthrie was one of the many young teenagers that enrolled at the Xavier Institute. Because of her mutation, she took the codename Husk.

(X-Men '92 Infinite Comic#1) - Gambit taught a class to the newly enrolled Husk, Chamber, M and Skin.

(Secret Wars#9 - BTS) - Earth-15730 along with all other domains of Battleworld were returned to their former state after the defeat of Doom.

(X-Men '92 II#1) - Sometime during the first day of the semester Husk, Penance, Chamber and others witnessed the arrival of the Russian People's Protectorate who came looking for Maverick. Chamber was quick to note the school was getting better and better.

(X-Men '92 II#2) - Learning Jubilee had been bitten by the vampire Alpha Red, the Soviet Union's answer to Captain America the students gathered to discuss the issue. Un-elected student body president M informed Husk, Dead Girl, Vivisector and several other students she believed they were dealing with vampires. Although most were scared by the very idea, Vivisector, a werewolf-like mutant himself, was quick to note it was ridiculous. M, continued, asked the students what they knew could help them in the coming fight, Husk stated that a vampire couldn't enter a home unless he was invited, prompting the students to wonder about Jubilee who was already home. Suddenly lightning hit the school, causing a blackout during which Jubilee, now a vampire, appeared. Unbeknownst to the students the X-Men (Storm, Bishop and Psylocke) had taken student U-Go Girl to teleport them to Castle Dracula in the hopes of acquiring his help in defeating Alpha Red.

(X-Men '92 II#3 - BTS) - Jubilee bit and turned M, Kid Sensitive and Vivisector into vampires.

(X-Men '92 II#3) - Husk, Dead Girl and Artie Maddicks fled away from Jubilee and the recently turned students, fearing to become vampires themselves. Just as the threesome was about to be vamped by Kid Sensitive and M they were rescued by Beast, who'd remained behind in the school with Xavier. Moments later Husk and the others witnessed the arrival of Alpha Red, joined by the vamped People's Protectorate and X-Men Wolverine, Gambit, Rogue and the assassin Maverick. Fearing for their lives Husk, Dead Girl and Artie Maddicks watched as Beast ordered Chamber (who was with Xavier) to turn on the school's defense systems. Nevertheless Alpha Red easily gained access to the school and made his way to Cerebro and used it to boot up the Darkhold program to eliminate vampirekind's most pressing weakness and allow them to walk in the sunlight.

(X-Men '92 II#4) - While the recently returned X-Men and Dracula faced Alpha Red, Beast had managed to bring Husk, Chamber, Dead Girl and Artie Maddicks to Xavier's command room. From confinement Beast planned to digitally exorcise the Darkhold programming from Cerebro, asking for Dead Girl's help as her mutant abilities made her immune to the supernatural. While Dead Girl virtually encountered the Darkhold, Chamber noticed that vamped Rogue was trying to breach the command room. Determined to keep her friends save Husk shed her skin preparing to fight Rogue but was stopped by Beast who explained the room was built to withstand the Juggernaut. However, moments later Rogue with help from Gambit managed to destroy part of the wall, gaining access to the command room. All of them were rescued when Dead Girl gave the Darkhold her soul to whisper the words "no more vampires" causing the vampire-curse to be lifted on Earth, turning all back into humans. Thus dealing with the situation at hand.

(X-Men '92 II#10 (fb) - BTS) - Husk and other students were surprised by the sudden arrival of Cyclops and Jean Grey who'd traveled back in time from 2099 A.D. of Earth-928. The senior X-Men had acquired the Darkhold from President Doom (Victor von Doom of Earth-928) which could be used in the X-Men's fight against Xodus the Forgotten. Husk had to keep the Darkhold safe.

(X-Men '92 II#10) - Husk was present when Charles Xavier and Apocalypse discussed a plan to activate the latent x-gene in all humans to create a world full of mutants to stop Xodus the Forgotten. 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. Reminded of the Darkhold book, Cyclops asked Husk to bring it after which Dead Girl with Xavier's help was able to turn millions of humans into mutants. Husk presumably joined the millions of mutants in the fight against Xodus.

First released as an eight-part digital Infinite Comic the series was later reprinted as a four-issue printed series.

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.
