- —Dead Girl[src]
In her normal life Dead Girl was an aspiring actress. However, a fellow actor murdered her while she stayed with him in a hotel. Her mutant powers triggered and she avenged her death. Although the others considered her 'weird', Dead Girl agreed to join the team.
Now that a deceased villain is attempting to use other dead heroes and villains in a plot, Dead Girl and Doctor Strange are attempting to stop him. The villain is the Pitiful One, intent on gathering other residents of Hell - such as Miss America, Kraven, Mysterio, The Ancient One and Dead Girl's previous teammate The Anarchist - to bring himself to life once more, with only Doctor Strange and Dead Girl, with the aid of her dead friends, to stop them. In order to combat the Pitiful One's plans, Dead Girl and Strange enlist help from dead heroes sent to Heaven, including Ant-Man II, the Phantom Rider and someone known as the Piano-Player; they also call on Mister Sensitive and U-Go Girl, two of Dead Girl's former teammates.
When Katie Sawyer, the daughter of U-Go Girl, began to manifest her powers, Dead Girl and Doop took her to the cemetery where her mom had been buried to give her few minutes with her mom. She didn't like it at first, but later understood. Dead Girl was in-between the land of the living and the dead. She helped with the reassembling of X-Statix, and her mission became that to take down the X-Cellent.

- Peter Milligan writes, with Mike Allred on inks and cover art while Nick Dragotta provides the interior penciling. Allred also pencils and inks the interior art for all the former X-Statix members that make appearances in the miniseries. A number of deceased Marvel characters make appearances, including Gwen Stacy, Mockingbird and Moira MacTaggart revealed as the "sisters" Dead Girl spoke of throughout the previous series.
- There has been some question as to whether the series is connected to the rest of Marvel continuity, and several intriguing things occur; among them is Dead Girl's pseudo-romantic involvement with Stephen Strange. She revealed in the fifth issue that her first name is Moonbeam. Eventually, she and him assembled a team of heroes stop the Pitiful One.
