Little is known of Teresa's past. She was a Peruvian mutant who at some point embraced radical Communism and was recruited into the Shining Path terrorist group by Inza Cuzco along with other mutants. Maria usually worked with her fellow mutant, Maria and a baseline-human terrorist named Carla.

Teresa was present with Inza and Maria when the Shining Path freed its imprisoned leader, Ernesto Sanz. She later helped capture Cable when he attempted to infiltrate the Shining Path's camp. She escaped the police's raid on the camp with Maria and Carla, and regrouped with Sanz and Inza at a safehouse, from which Sanz sent the three women to destroy and important lumber plant, which they did.

Following Cable's defeat of Inza and Sanz, Maria, Teresa, and Carla took to armed robbery and held up a bank. Cable again confronted them and the three women attacked. Cable killed Maria and Teresa in self-sefense. Shortly thereafter, Carla was also killed in an act of police brutality by her interrogating officer.


Teresa could project continuous streams of highly-destructive energy spheres from the palms of her hands. She seemed to be able to vary their intensity, as she demonstrated using them both for pushing someone out of a tree and for destroying a major portion of a large building.


In addition to her powers, Teresa carried a pistol, which she used to murder a hostage at the bank robbery.
