Tarot became a member of the original Hellions. Unlike some of the more mean-spirited Hellions (namely Empath, and Roulette), Tarot was generally good-natured. It was revealed by Mirage's psychic abilities that Tarot was in fact in love with one of the New Mutants, probably Cypher or Sunspot.
M-Day and Necrosha
Her death was short-lived as she, along with all of the other deceased Hellions, was resurrected by Selene and Eli Bard using the Transmode Virus. She was able to use her powers on that occasion, although other depowered mutants resurrected by Eli Bard could not. She and Hellions launched an attack on the X-Men, but they were all killed by the New Mutants.
Tarot was seen posting a sequence of tarot cards she repeatedly pulled, presumably on a Krakoan message board, in hopes of finding to whom the prediction belonged. Unbeknownst to her, she pulled the exact card sequence Saturnyne pulled during the initial confrontation in Otherworld. She later pulled and posted the same cards Saturnyne gave to each of Krakoa's champions.

Postcognition: Tarot was also able to see past events with the combined use of her mutant powers and her tarot cards.
Psionic Will-Based Constructs: Tarot could materialize and animate tangible images of the 2-D avatars/images on her tarot cards. Once materialized they were completely under her mental control and could do her bidding. The images were able to enter battle for her, protect her, or even aid her in flight. They were not invincible but actually Energy/Will based constructs. If hit with enough force whether physical or psionic they would disperse.
Flight: Through use of her animate tarot cards she would grant flight. This was done by standing atop any of her flying cards and she would be lifted into the air.
Tarot is skilled and received training in the use of the mystical tarot cards. As such she has finely tune this skill to a pin-point accuracy.
Tarot constantly keeps a deck of tarot cards with her, usually the deck her grandmother gave to her.
- The full details of Tarot's living and dying were not disclosed. During her time with the second Hellions, it was implied that Tarot survived Fitzroy's assault due to King Bedlam's brain wave abilities, and a link he previously established with her. It was further implied that Tarot now lived or died at the whim of King Bedlam.
- If true, this would explain Tarot's behind-the-scenes death after the Decimation. She and King Bedlam both lost their powers on M-Day, so if Bedlam's power was keeping her alive, then Tarot would have perished when he was decimated.
