Former ruler of the Shi'ar Empire, Deathbird was dethroned by her evil brother D'Ken who also murdered her sister Lilandra. Ultimately, she joined the Starjammers a group of space pirates who were determined to overthrow D'Ken. This mission become all the more dire when D'Ken began tampering with the M'kraan Crystal, threatening to destroy all reality.[1]

When Gambit and his X-Ternals ended up in Shi'Ar space seeking out a chunk of the crystal to repair the fractured timeline, they clashed with D'Ken's Imperial Guard. They were pulled from the battle by Deathbird and the Starjammers just as the unstable M'Kraan Crystal crystallized most of the Shi'ar homeworld.[1]

Deathbird accompanied the X-Ternals to the surface of the world where the M'Kraan crystal was located, and while the other X-Ternals held off the planet's defenders, Gambit, Lila Cheney and Deathbird attempted to approach the crystal. There, they were pulled into the M'Kraan Crystal, where Lila and Deathbird were frozen by the crystal. Gambit managed to collect a shard of the crystal and free Lila; however Deathbird's fate remains unrevealed.[2]
