After successfully completing their first mission, the Hellions were assigned to investigate the Human Liberation Front in Tokyo, Japan. Because her father was suspected of being involved, Surge was temporarily replaced by Magik. Magik's teleportation powers also served as transportation.
While investigating the Human Liberation Front threat, the Hellions discovered the truth about Project Genesis with help from NMLI recruits. Under the suggestion of Dr. Garrison, Emperor Sunfire and S.H.I.E.L.D. sanctioned the experimentation of inducing mutation in baseline humans to force evolution.
After freeing the imprisoned baseline humans, the Hellions and recruits from the New Mutant Leadership Institute went a suicide mission to Emperor Sunfire's Imperial Palace. Magik teleported the human prisoners away and was now the only living member of the Hellions.
- Magik mentioned that S.H.I.E.L.D. found the Soulsword in another dimension related to her powers, and she expressed the desire to visit in the future.
- Because Magik was briefly alive in the House of M, Belasco resurrected a soulless likeness of her in Limbo.
- She speaks Japanese along with Russian and English, this is possibly due to her S.H.I.E.L.D. training.
