Origin and history
Dana Moonstar has yet to appear in the mainstream Marvel timeline.
Age of Apocalypse
Dana Moonstar was the sister of the Pale Rider's Danielle Moonstar
. Her relationship with her sister, if any, was unrevealed, as was everything else about this mysterious mutant. Cloaked in a large brown garment covering her face, Dana was a member of the tunnel dwelling community, the Morlocks
. As a member of the group, they were captured, in breeding pens
, as lab experiments by evil geneticist Mister Sinister
under the instruction of Apocalypse
. When Apocalypse's reign had ended, the X-Men
came to greet them to the free surface world. However, the group, led by Marrow
, were suspicious of the X-Men and thought if they were to go to the surface they would sooner become experiments again. Scared, the Morlocks attacked the X-Men. While Storm
was able to defeat most of the group, Dana manifested the fears of X-Men team leader Magneto--Mr sinister wielding the immense power of the Phoenix Force
--incapacitating him. The X-Men tended to him and the Morlocks fled the scene.
