Fantasia was a Dire Wraith, presumably arriving on Earth at some time during the Wraith War against Rom, the Spaceknight. She suffered amnesia and forgot her true form and mission. Under unrevealed circumstances, she came to use the magical powers she still possessed as an agent of the Soviet people.
As part of the Supreme Soviets, Fantasia used her abilities to disguise the team as the Avengers. While doing so they attacked the Soviet Super-Soldiers. Captain America was drawn into the conflict, and ended up saving Fantasia from a beast.
As Fantasma, she was part of the People's Protectorate when the Supreme Soviets were renamed after the fall of the USSR. The Protectorate battled the Combine and the Peace Corpse. She also fought the Hulk and the Pantheon while trying to recover a renegade KGB agent from America. Fantasma was later seen as part of the Winter Guard as they battled the Mandarin and his Dragon of Heaven.
After Darkstar died while serving with the X-Men, Fantasma was among those seven members of the Winter Guard who left to form a splinter group, the Protectorate, who sought a way to bring Darkstar back to life. They ended up in Limbo, where they made a deal to serve Immortus for a year in exchange for his help. However, before their year of service ended, Fantasma recovered her full memories, revealed herself to be a Dire Wraith, and traveled back to Earth, appearing in Saint Petersburg. Rescued by the current Winter Guard and brought to their base, the Citadel, a former Dire Wraith base that had been taken over by the Russian government, Fantasma pretended to not to remember her origins and let the Winter Guard leave the base. Once the team had gone, Fantasma made her way to a sub-basement where she found a hidden nursery full of Wraith eggs waiting to be born. Even as the Protectorate returned to Earth too and told the Winter Guard of what had happened in Limbo and that Fantasma was a Dire Wraith, Fantasma formed an alliance with The Presence and took over the former Winter Guard headquarters, and then, working together, they began to awaken the Wraith.
The Winter Guard stormed the base and were attacked by the full force of Fantasia's Dire Wraith army. However, Powersurge and Red Guardian managed to make a device capable of defeating the Dire Wraiths and Crimson Dynamo boosted its signal, which created a tear in time that led to Limbo. This tear started to grow and would consume everything. In order to seal it, Galina threw Fantasia into the tear. Refusing to be destroyed by herself in vain, she dragged Starlight into the tear too. This caused the tear to collapse on itself and kill both of them.
