Masque was involved in a plot to overthrow Baroness Khonshu of Egyptia and gathered with other mutants for a meeting. Eventually Wolverine arrives and leads Colossus, Shadowcat, and Nightcrawler into the desert. After going into the desert, the trio are tricked and converted in Werewolves for attempting to kill Khonshu. Later, back at the initial meeting place, Shadowcat, Colossus, and Wolverine address the gathering, saying Khonshu spared them and is deserving of being honored, but the other mutants distrust them for they now bear the Goddess' mark and do not believe her to be merciful. The three then transform into Man-Wolves and attack the other mutants, as them being saved was no show of mercy.
