One-time leader of the Morlocks, it was Callisto who discovered the "alley", the
main tunnel that is connected to a network of tunnels beneath New York City (see
Morlocks). The tunnels were constructed in the 1950's by the US government in
case of a nuclear war but were later abandoned. Callisto made this her home and
found another mutant named Caliban who had the psionic ability to locate other
mutants. Callisto gathered together a large community of mutants. The community
was organized like a large street gang and led by Callisto.
abducted Angel to be her consort but was defeated in single combat by Storm of
the X-Men, who became the official leader of the Morlocks. Callisto continued
to act as their leader in Storm's absence. Callisto later attempted to take revenge
on the X-Men by trying to force Kitty Pryde to wed Caliban. She again battled
Storm and lost.
Callisto then became a warrior servant of sorcerer Kulan
Gath, who transformed New York City into a city from the hyborian age. Her life
was saved by Storm and together they turned against Kulan Gath and defeated him.
Callisto and her allies found themselves on a new timeline where Kulan Gath never
transformed New York.
Callisto was wounded during the Marauder's massacre
of the Morlocks and took refuge with the X-Men. She later encountered Peter Nicholas,
the former X-Men called Colossus. Callisto herself was transformed into a beautiful
model by Masque, who later captured her and told Peter how she had transformed
Callisto. Peter defeated Masque but Callisto was then attacked by Genoshan Magistrates.
She escaped and embarked on a new life with Peter Nicholas as lovers, but this
new lifestyle did not last long and so Callisto and Colossus went back to their
Later, with the few remaining members of the Morlocks,
Callisto joined with Colossus's thought to be long dead brother Mikhail. The Morlocks
were thought to have been killed when one of the tunnels they were hiding in was
flooded, but unknown to the X-Men who were trying to save them, Mikhail opened
a portal to another dimension and saved Callisto and a handful of Morlocks. Together,
Mikhail and Callisto, now romantically involved, created Gene Nation, a militant
terrorist group which sought to punish "upworlders" back on Earth. Their stay
in this dimension did not last long, due largely to the intervention of the X-Man
Storm, and Callisto and the rest of Gene Nation returned to Earth.
recently, Callisto, joined by the young ex-Gene Nation member named Marrow, tried
to abduct government agent Henry Gyrich, who they held responsible for OPERATION:
Zero Tolerance. As the two mutants attacked Gyrich's limousine the super hero
known as Spider-Man stepped in to stop them. Although the death of Gyrich was
prevented by Spider-Man, the mutant involvement caused the activation of two Prime
Sentinels who where once Gyrich's agents. The Prime Sentinels battled with the
mutants and Spider-Man, and as they were about to kill both Spider-Man and Marrow,
Callisto, having witnessed too many deaths in her life time, leaped in the way
of the sentinel's bio-blast and took the blast at full force.
was seriously injured by the Prime Sentinels, but it gave Spider-Man and Marrow
a chance to fight back and with the help of Agent Gyrich they destroyed the Prime
Sentinels. Callisto was taken into the Morlock tunnels by Marrow to have her wounds
heal. It is not known if Callisto has lived through the experience.
