She remained there until freed by Overmind. Eventually returning to Earth alongside several of her other specimens following a rescue by Quasar.
She worked with the reality-displaced Squadron Supreme and occasionally assumed the appearance of a giant dragonfly who could control insects. In this state, she was left mindless and manipulated into doing her sister's bidding.

Powers and Abilities
- Winged Flight: Dragonfly has fly-like wings, enabling flight at 45 mph.
- Hypnosis: She can release a hypnotizing ray through her forehead's antennae, rendering a single victim within 5' susceptible to all her commands.
Due to her unstable genetic makeup, her body absorbs radiation and uses it to further mutate her into a 12' long insect form with the power to control every insect within a 200' radius. Excess radiation is slowly released (this is expedited in immersion in water), reversing any radiation-induced mutations. Consultant's armor made her bulletproof.
- Communicate with insect life: After Mutating into a giant dragonfly, Veronica was able to communicate and control several forms of inset life.
Flight under her own power. Vehicles of any team she is working with.
- Dragonfly's escape from Muir Island in X-Men #104 was intended to lead to the character's appearance as part of an all-female team called The Furies which X-Men penciler Dave Cockrum was planning. Despite the book being tentatively greenlit, Cockrum never finished the plot for the team's first story, and the idea eventually fell apart, so Dragonfly's escape from Muir Island was never addressed.
