M'Jell was of Skrull heritage and was a member of the pirate crew of Valesh Malafect and she was the primary pilot of the spacecraft "the Desolation". When the young time-displaced X-Man Cyclops joined their team, she often helped the young mutant out. She was even saved by Cyclops during a raid, which caused her to live, while still hurt. This caused her to feel great loyalty to the young mutant. A loyalty that was most likely broken the moment she found out Cyclops had betrayed their team. M'Jell remained a part of the Desolation crew, even after the death of their leader Valesh Malafect.
