Eva was convinced by her friend to go out clubbing and finally talk to the boy she has a crush on. However, her overprotective brother arrived and ended up causing a fight with the boy and his group of friends. In this moment of stress, Eva's mutation awakened and she froze the entire block in time. What seemed like only moments to her was actually a day gone by. The X-Men Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Magneto arrived to help her. They explained how her mutant power had emerged, and that they would aid her in her new life. As the time sphere dispersed and the police moved in to apprehend Eva, the X-Men combated them to defend her.
Eva quickly became friends with other new mutant, Christopher Muse, as the two talked to each other introducing themselves and discussed their powers.
Eva was created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Stuart Immonen, making her debut in All-New X-Men #1. Eva's brown hair was changed to black after her mutation emerged (an artistic change later reflected on the cover of All-New X-Men #2), likely as a means of helping fans to avoid confusing her with Rachel Grey.

The New Revolution
With the awakening of a new mutant powers by the name of Fabio Medina, Cyclops and his team of revolutionaries locate him and help him as he is being detained by police after his powers manifested themselves causing a comotion in the city. Eva manages to use her powers to trap the cops and a certain part of the city in a time bubble to prevent any interference from them. As the team meets Fabio, a horde of sentinels attack and the veteran X-Men attempt to stop them as they feel the students are not yet ready. Cyclops manages to make the final blow in the brief battle, destroying the sentinels as well as the surrounding area. With a new mutant bolstering their ranks, the team leaves back to their school: the New Charles Xavier Institute.
Eva along with the other new mutants are given the run down on the situation of the status of mutant-kind in the world. The veteran X-Men tell them that they were always mutants but once the X gene was restored, their powers were finally able to manifest themselves. Cyclops tells them about the sentinels and that the robots will hunt them and attack them. Eva wishes to go home to Golden Coast, Australia to make sure her mother is safe. Reluctantly, Cyclops allows this and the new squad leave save for Magneto. They arrive in her town and she heads to her house where she is reunited with her mother. Cyclops tells Eva's mother that her daughter will be safe. Not long after arriving, the Avengers assemble outside Eva's home.
Eva reveals all her life she looked up to Captain America and she tries to talk to him but the Avengers continue to pursue Cyclops under the charges of him murdering Xavier. The new students stare and Eva stare on as Cyclops and Emma call out the Avengers for their part in the problem as Eva remains close to her mother. Eventually the Avengers are about to attack, but Eva out of reflex, traps the Avengers in a time bubble. Eva and the new students watch on as Cyclops proclaims he will save the mutants and the humans that support them but will not sit back against those who hound mutant-kind. Eva says her goodbyes to her mother with Cyclops telling her Eva will be safe. The new students watch as Magneto comes clean about his plan and they also watch TV as Eva's mother expresses her negative opinions about the Avengers. The new students remain at the new institute while Cyclops and the veteran X-Men head towards the Jean Grey Institute.
Eva's powers were shown to be control over time and space. Her powers so far work by creating a temporal bubble, freezing time within it. The first bubble she created spanned an entire block and was held up for 20 hours, showing that effects can last quite some time. Since her powers are new at the time, she does not yet possess full control over them and as a result seems to get dizzy when using them.
