Camille "Cammi" Benally was an average, 10-year-old human girl with an absent father and an abusive alcoholic of a mother in the small town of Coot's Bluff, Alaska. She encountered Drax the Destroyer when a prison ship he was on board crash landed on Earth just outside of her town. Cammi befriended Drax and protect Coot's Bluff from Paibok, Lunatik, and the Blood Brothers. During the battle, Drax gained a new body. A second prison ship later arrived and arrested both Drax and Cammi.
After the Annihilation War, Cammi separated from Drax and became a space bandit. For eighteen months, she committed crimes against the Badoon, Kree, Shi'ar, and several others planets, races, and empires. She was eventually apprehended by S.W.O.R.D. while stealing from a Shi'ar Warhawk. Cammi was interrogated by Special Agent Abigail Brand, who offered to "lose" her and return her to Earth rather than extradite her to another's jurisdiction. Cammi adamantly requested not to be returned to Earth, but before the interrogation could progress further,Cammi was abducted by Arcade.
Along with fifteen other young superheroes, Cammi was brought to Murderworld by Arcade for a all out death match. Cammi almost immediately separated from the others and began setting traps and spying on other camps to protect herself. She formed a temporary alliance with Darkhawk before he disappeared and was saved by Nico and Chase of the Runaways, whom she formed an alliance with.
From then on she struggled to keep the peace among the other participants and was forced to take Chase by surprise and break his leg so that she could remove the Darkhawk amulet from him and stop Nico from killing Cullen Bloodstone.
Chase then stopped the battle between them because Hazmat was losing control over her powers and was going to explode. Reptil then turned into a dinosaur form and carried Hazmat out into the water away from everyone else. Apex tried to attack all the remaining survivors with the entire arsenal that Arcade had at his disposal and because Chase was immobilized Cammi returned the Darkhawk amulet to him to make him able to fight again. After Death Locket killed Apex, the survivors were rescued and were treated by paramedics and Avengers while Cammi was treated by agent Abigail Brand.
Over the coarse of the next few months Camille would try her best to blend in with normal society, having gotten back together with her mother; Mavis Benally. The weight of mundane living was slowly eating away at her sense of self however as she would regularly sit through her parent's personal help talk meetings in order to make her family reunion work. Eventually however her longing for adventure and redemption would lead her to seek out the other surviving teen heroes in response to Cullen's more erratic behavior posted on the web.
Worried about they'er brother in battle, she and the rest of them reconnoiter'd back at house Bloodstone to check up on him after Anachronism sent out the call when he last lost site of Cullen, Still broken and bitterly obsessed with revenge. The crew tracked down his last whereabouts near of Bagalia City, where his latest video showed him leaping into a pit without wearing his Bloodstone Ring.
When they got there and were spotted by young supervillains on their entry into enemy territory. They were all shocked and surprised to find Cullen alive and well partying it up within a bachelor pad owned by Arcade. Cammi was just as disoriented by his behavior as everyone else but chose to mingle at the party to take her mind off of things much like Hazmat and Aiden did. But grew more and more distressed by how easily everyone else was taken in the the festivities when approached by senior members of the villain league; wanting to leave in that instant.
But she and the others were persuaded by Bloodstone to accompany him to murder their tormentor at a lavish new Murderworld galla; Arcade. Initially Camille was livid at Cullen for warping them into a hot mess where rich billionaires murdered each other at the be-haste of their insane benefactors bloodsport, but was quickly dissuaded by Nico who retorted that they all needed closure in order to heal. After they were assailed by Arcade himself, who still had all of his powers from the previous Murderworld Arena he trapped them in; Deathlocket managed to cut power and connectivity to his suits systems. Wherein she and the rest of her compatriots proceeded to pummel him mercilessly, she was stunned and horrified however when a previously comatose Hazmat outright eviscerated him in cold blood right in front of them. To which she voiced expedient concerns as to how their outright killing a man on live television broadcast the world over would most definitely land them all in jail or worse, right around the time a S.H.I.E.L.D. capture team blew open the doors and arrested everyone left and right.
While imprisoned, Cammi's mother visited her in jail to give moral support. Stating no matter how bad things were that her daughter was the only reason she gets up out of bed in the mornings, Only for her and the rest of her friends to be snatched away via teleportation spell courtesy of Daimon Hellstorm, wherein she and others were cordially invited by Baron Zemo to luxurious eats with an invitation into their Supervillains gathering.
Feeling as if being baited by everything that's happened so far Takeda, Aiden and herself ruminated on their options presented to them. Either reject The Masters generosity and be arrested again or stick with them and become true supervillains. After hearing their idea to join up as undercover spys however, Camile flatly rejected the offer and decided to head home before things went south only to be intercepted and detained again by Constrictor for rejecting the offer. Back in lockup she spent the next expanse of time digging a hole in the wall in order to escape, only to find her exit was right through the Master's of Evil's main penthouse and that Arcade was in fact still alive.
As the Masters and their new acolytes began they're endgame after stealing a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and crippling their organizations worldwide network with they're help. Cammi managed to escape and somehow snuck aboard before they took off to terrorize the world.
She and Arcade worked out how to siphon Murderworld's God Mode setting through the commandeered warship's mainframe into her own space suit, but was snatched up by Constrictor and Madame Masque scant moments after the download finished, both of whom were impressed by her achievements thus far. With the application in fullswing, Cammille managed to depose Zemo and his entire crew while using his live feed to reveal how she and her friends turned criminals initially infiltrated his order to find some kind of redemption from their atrocious past. Failing in that she went on to say Arcade was still alive and that people should be ashamed of judging innocent kids for wanting to kill their jailer while they watched his stream of the massacre's in complacency on their cozy armchairs, before giving a final heartfelt farewell to her mother before deciding to fly off into space under her own power, admitting as she no longer felt she belonged on Earth.
Catching up with Drax
Over the coarse of her explorations, Cammi eventually partnered up with space adventurer Planet Terry and coming into service of Pip the Troll and forming a mercenary crew. She and Terry went to capture Drax to cash in on a bounty Pip put on him in the first place, while feigning to leave him in peace she actually stashed his ship full of Cryo-Fusion detonators which flash freeze everyone onboard Drax's ship.
While the two converse in the brig of her partners spaceship, she tells him about her time when she was tuck in Arcade's murder world arena. When Drax comments on her trying to capture him, she says it was nothing personal when reinforcing the fact she Did capture him. To which he responds by ripping a hole through the side of his would be captors ship miles above planetary surface, where she follows him outside gun ablaze not realizing what she'd done until her score spelled it out to her. After being rescued by Planet Terry, they both make surface fall in time to catch Pip's explanation of why he put the hit out on Douglas in the first place. With everything now full circle Cammi, Pip and Terry help Drax escort the remaining kids in his care back to their respective home planets.
Along the way they're attacked by space pirates where Cammi and Terry jest about Drax not knowing they cannot communicate while in an airless vacuum. After depositing the princess in Drax's care whom Pip wanted safeguarded for a reward, she and the rest of the crew ruminated on why various other bounty hunters were still after him, she mentioned her time back in the arena she lived through.
Saying what got her through the darkness was thinking about what he would've done in that situation, only to realize just how empty such a life truly is and she pitied him for it.
