On one mission, she and her teammates Sumo and Kamikaze were sent to Madripoor in order to oversee the distribution of a drug designed to contaminate the world's water supply. She was opposed in this mission by the New Mutants led by Cable, Sunfire and Wolverine.[1]

When the X-Men and X-Factor teamed up to bring down the MLF, they fought in Dust Bowl, Arkansas. Dragoness managed to lure Cannonball in close and disable him, but she fell when confronted by Storm, Polaris, and Rogue together.[2]
