Cammi is a ten year old from Coot's Bluff, Alaska whose mother was an alcoholic that didn't pay much attention to her. Her father has been missing for some time and it is unknown if he abandoned them. She encountered Drax the Destroyer when a prison ship he was on board crash landed on Earth just outside of her town. She drags a boy from school along with her to try and find it and encounters surviving prisoners Paibok, Lunatik, and the Blood Brothers. The boy she is with runs away, but she isn't moved at all by the sudden appearance of aliens. The group of escapees make for her town to enslave them in hopes that they can reconstruct a ship from the debris and leave Earth quietly. Drax is intellectually impaired at this time and Cammi, for no other reason than being bored, easily tricks him into thinking she is his daughter. She tells him that the Blood Brothers hurt her and Drax goes into a rage seeking vengeance on those that hurt his daughter. The fight spills into town where the combined efforts of the prisoners kill Drax.
Cammi then claims Drax's body because it is something special that isn't seen everyday. The body starts to smoke and then transforms into a new, smarter Drax. Because of this, Cammi believes that she is the current owner of Drax. Drax looks into her memories to remember what is going on and easily can tell that she is not his daughter. Drax again fights the prisoners culminating in the death of Lunatik and one of the Blood Brothers. Fearing for his safety, Paibok uses a beacon to call on his captors for their recapture. Having no more reason to fight, Drax waits with him for the ship to arrive. Cammi's mother did not survive the alien occupation of Coot's Bluff. She follows Drax onto the new prison ship and to the planet Xandar, home of the Nova Corps, in hopes that she can find something that will make her happy.
Major Story Arcs
After arriving on Xandar, Cammi and Drax are both released from custody on the technicality that Drax's DNA does not match that on record. This is due to his recent transformation. Soon after, the Xanadar cluster is attacked by the Annihilation Wave. Cammi and Drax miraculously survive the attack in a small escape ship that crashes back on the planet. There they encounter the only other survivor and last living member of the Nova Corps, Nova. With his help, they find a ship and leave the planet as it is falling from its orbit.
Cammi sticks with Drax for most of the Annihilation War who remains with Nova and the United Front. She realizes Drax is only sticking with them in hopes that it will bring him closer to Thanos, who Drax was created to kill. While escaping from a planet under attack by the Annihilation Wave, Drax chooses to stay behind and buy time for the ship Cammi is escaping on despite her protests. After the break up of the United Front, Cammi is left with Gamora after Nova and a small team leave in hopes of killing Annihilus, leader of the Annihilation Wave.
After the war is over, it is uncertain of what happened to Cammi. Gamora says she got her to safety, but her current location is unknown. She is seen wandering an alien planet with the chaos mite, Skreet, on her shoulder. Drax has since unsuccessfully searched for her.
Cammi is one of the many young superhumans abducted by Arcade for his game of life-or-death on his island arena, having been taken right out from under S.W.O.R.D.'s noses.
At the time, she was being interrogated by Abigail Brand in their peak-orbital headquarters, after having been apprehended by her organization for violating Earth's treaty with the Shi'ar Empire by attacking a Shi'ar War Hawk ship and siphoning power from their fuel cells. Her accomplices cut and ran when it looked as though they would be caught and killed by the Shi'ar, leaving her stranded and at their mercy. Thankfully, she was apprehended by S.W.O.R.D. instead. However, she did not go down without a fight, shattering the forearm of one of Abigail's best field agents, and nearly killing the rookie that somehow managed to subdue her.
According to Agent Brand, she had hours of footage similar to this encounter that spread over the previous eighteen months, documenting an impressive intergalactic criminal record she had managed to gain in the aftermath of the Annihilation War. Also, according to the DNA samples that S.W.O.R.D. took from her upon her capture, Cammi possesses no unique superhuman abilities, mutations, enhancements, etc. She was offered a full pardon on earth, Agent Brand citing how it would be " fairly easy to "lose" a 13-year-old human girl planet-side" so long as she assured her that she wouldn't be a threat. However, Cammi stated that she would prefer to extradited to one of the star systems she was wanted in, as opposed to being sent back home to Coot's Bluff. However, before stating her reasons, she was abducted by Arcade.
Once his challenge on the island had begun, Cammi wasted no time ensuring that she would survive his sick game. She stuck to the forests, kept out of sight of the other groups on the island, slept in the trees, laid traps armed with landmines of extraterrestrial origin, and travelled by night. She was one of the first to notice that, four nights in, someone was hunting them. She met up with Darkhawk and formed a mutual alliance with the New Warrior. He wanted to make sure that everyone who was life alive made it out of Arcade's clutches in one piece, and she wanted to make it out alive.
The two split up to cover more ground and figure out who it was that was trailing them. However, before she could make it much further, Cammi was ambushed by X-23, who mistook her for the mystery assailant. She got the drop on her by burying herself in the snow, then sprang upon her, batted away her blaster, and nearly killed her before realizing her scent wasn't that of their attacker. Admitting her mistake, X-23 apologized to Cammi and disappeared into the night. Still, this encounter left its mark on Cammi, causing her to become incredibly angry with herself. She fired into the air in blind fury, creating a massive explosion. After this demonstration of frustration, Cammi discarded her armor and began training to vent her anger. In the bitter cold, snow falling around her, sweat pouring from her body, Cammi began doing pushups, repeating a self-depreciating mantra to herself aloud.
"Stupid. Weak. Slow. Stupid. Weak. Slow. Stupid. Weak. Slow."
She has also formed a tentative alliance with Runaways members Nico Minoru and Chase Stein after they save her during an avalanche in the snow quadrant. She offers to help them with the basic survival of Murderworld in exchange for additional firepower.
Powers and Abilities
According to DNA samples taken from Cammi by S.W.O.R.D. upon her capture following an assault on a Shi'ar War Hawk, Cammi possesses no superhuman abilities. She is not a mutant, cyborg, mutate, mystic mutate, alien, hybrid, or a clone. Her genes aren't radioactive, she hasn't been possessed, supercharged, or artificially enhanced in any way, shape, or form. In short, Cammi is an average, 13-year-old human girl. However, there are many things about her that cannot be explained.
Cammi possesses an uncanny aptitude for hand-to-hand combat, besting highly trained S.W.O.R.D. operatives with impressive skill and strength, enough to shatter bone, all while under the rigors of zero-gravity. She also possesses great agility, able to perform a handstand in zero-gravity, climb trees with ease, and fall from a significant height without sustaining any visible injury. She also possesses keen survival instincts, most likely gleaned from both life in the Alaskan wilderness, and during her tenure under Drax the Destroyer. She knows how to set traps, make tactical observations and formulate strategies on the fly, hunt and track prey or opponents, use the environment to her advantage, manipulate others for her benefit, make split-decision judgement calls, and avoid detection in a wilderness environment. She has also managed to comprehend advanced alien piloting and spacecraft controls, simply from having played video-games for most of her childhood.
Aside from her skills in combat, Cammi makes use of a wide variety of alien technology, most of which she has managed to acquire over the 18 months she spent in space following the end of the Annihilation war. Chief among them are her spacesuit, jetpack, plasma pistol, and anti-personnel mines. Her spacesuit not only protects her from environmental extremes, but also holds a variety of extraneous functions, such as thermal scanners and infrared vision. She uses a number of anti-personnel mines, ranging from simple pressure-activated ones, to advanced voice-activated mines. The command code to deactivate the latter is "Waldorf."
She also has, what Abigail Brand refers to as "one Hell of a poker face," which suggests she may have developed a resilience to certain forms of torture, physical and possibly psychological as well. However, this has yet to be expanded upon.
