Fictional character biography[edit]

Jeffrey Garrett[edit]

Andrea Margulies is one of the youngest students at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning and one of Emma Frost's numerous advisees. When Bishop and Sage visit the X-Mansion during a murder investigation, Rubbermaid and fellow students Tantra, Gloom, Silicon, and Zach decide to play pranks on the two X-Men. Rubbermaid attempts to wrap herself around Bishop, but Bishop manages to subdue her.[volume & issue needed]

In issue 22 (the Schism Arc), it is revealed by Emma Frost that Jeffrey Garrett, a mutant who is accused of murder, has won her heart. He is the reason why Bishop and Sage came to the X-Mansion. When they arrived again, Andrea wrapped herself around Jeffrey after he was shot by Sage so he would receive no further harm. When Jeffrey woke up, he told her to run, but she would not leave him. When Storm and Emma arrived, the children were all gone. The two rushed to the danger room where Bogan was. Oliver, aide to Mr. Bogan, who had Rubbermaid in his arms, fainted.[volume & issue needed]

Alpha Squadron[edit]

Following the formation of training squads, Rubbermaid is assigned a new adviser, Northstar, and is placed on Alpha Squadron along with fellow student Victor Borkowski. When Northstar is seemingly killed by Wolverine, former New Mutant Karma takes over as the squad's adviser.[volume & issue needed]


On M-Day, Rubbermaid loses her powers, and she is killed when the bus she and other depowered students are riding home is blown up by William Stryker's forces.[volume & issue needed]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Before she lost her powers, Rubbermaid had the ability to stretch her body to great lengths and absorb physical damage without sustaining injury.
