Major Story Arcs
She fell in love with Logan and they lived together in Canada. One day Sabretooth attacked Silver Fox apparently killing her. Logan fought Sabretooth but lost.
Years later it appeared that Silver Fox had somehow survived the onslaught by Sabretooth and she joined the Weapon X program. After that she joined the "Team X" unit, reuniting her with Wolverine and Sabretooth. Due to a reaction to her memory implants she betrayed the team and became a terrorist in Hydra. Silver Fox reappeared during the period when Wolverine tracked down the members of the Weapon X staff and discovered the studios where many of the memories he thought were his were staged. Apparently, she killed the Professor who had been in charge of the program after Logan left. At this point it was revealed that Silver Fox controlled a section of Hydra.
Silver Fox hired an assassin to poison Mariko Yashida, who was Wolverine's lover.
Later, when Mastodon, a member of Weapon X died due to the failure of his anti-aging factor, Silver Fox reunited with Logan, Creed, Maverick and Wraith. They infiltrated a secret base and confronted the man who had implanted them with their false memories: Aldo Ferro, the Psi-Borg. Ferro actually took control of their minds and this time made Creed actually kill Silver Fox.
Once the group had defeated the Psi-Borg, Logan travelled to the cabin where he really had lived with Silver Fox a lifetime ago, vindicating his one truly happy memory. He got permission to bury her there, and used the part of the door inscribed with "Silver Fox Logan" in a heart as a headstone.
