With the Micronauts
After returning to Homeworld, the Micronauts assist the rebel forces in overthrowing Baron Karza and his Dog Soldiers. During their time together, Marionette and Commander Rann fall in love with each other. She gives up her right to the throne to continue her adventures with the Micronauts and specifically her love Commander Rann. For a time her legs didn't work and she had to use a floating chair for transport.
Enigma Force and the Son of Hulk
Arcturus began searching for the Enigma Force Nullifier and continued his search for decades. He believed that with the device he could cure his cancer. Along with Carl the Death's Head robot and a recently returned Marionette, they found the nullifier on the planet K'ai, only to find the crazed son of Hulk, Hiro Kala. Hiro planned to destroy the Old Power, which included destroying the Microverse. Instead of curing himself, Arcturus used the Nullifier in an attempt to defeat Hiro Kala.
When the Nullifier Wave was released, it reset the Microverse from the destruction Hiro unleashed and cured Arcturus' cancer. But Hiro was not defeated and took K'ai with him into the the regular universe. Arcturus formed the Enigma Force as a group to follow Hiro, defeat him and return the planet to it's rightful place in the Microverse.
Marionette uses her gymnastics ability and a laser pistol to defeat the Micronaut adversaries.
