Fabio Medina is one of the numerous new mutants whose powers manifested after the war between the Avengers and X-Men.

His powers manifested after he was victim of a robbery attempt, as he explained to the police. The San Diego police officers attempted to put him into custody, but they were interrupted by Cyclops and his group of X-Men who showed up at the scene to rescue Fabio.[1]

After the X-Men and Fabio together fended off a squad of various sized Sentinels, the X-Men offered Fabio a place on their team. He was reluctant at first, but eventually determined that he prefered to join rather than to remain in San Diego.[2]

He was with the team of X-Men that visited Eva Bell's home and encountered the Avengers before being transported into Limbo during Dormammu's attempted attack.[3][4] After they escaped, Fabio demanded to be taken home.[5] His family questioned his disappearance and did not believe or understand that he was a mutant.[6][7]

He later lost control of his powers and Agent Dazzler of S.H.I.E.L.D arrived to question him about Cyclops' location. He was taken into S.H.I.E.L.D custody before being rescued by Cyclops' team and joining them once more. He later assisted in the battle against the Blockbuster Sentinel by concentrating the emission of his gold balls to topple the Sentinel.[7][8] It was upon this occasion that he took on the nickname Goldballs.[9]
