Fictional character biography[edit]

Sally Floyd is a journalist that investigated the aftermath of the events of M-Day, the day on which millions of mutants lost their mutant abilities.

Floyd's daughter, Minnie, had died several months earlier due to a mutation that caused her to grow younger and younger from the age 2. In the wake of this tragedy, Floyd developed alcoholism.

Taking over from Jessica Jones, Floyd investigated several M-Day cases, writing about well-known mutants who had lost their powers and producing a series of article profiles.[volume & issue needed]

She worked with former X-Man Jubilee, a depowered mutant, and her investigation led her to Warren Worthington (Archangel), who pretended to be depowered and with whom she may have had a previous relationship.[1] Archangel used Floyd as a pawn to catch a serial killer known as Ghoul who was targeting mutants for death.[volume & issue needed] Afterward, Floyd entered rehab and began a friendship with reporter Ben Urich of the Daily Bugle.[volume & issue needed]

Floyd's next appearance was in Civil War: Front Line. By the end, she and Urich had resigned from their respective newspapers and formed the online newspaper Frontlines.com;[volume & issue needed] they later form the print newspaper Front Line.[volume & issue needed] The two were split over the controversial Superhuman Registration Act, with Floyd initially opposed,[volume & issue needed] but later becoming a supporter.[volume & issue needed] Later, during World War Hulk: Front Line, Floyd started drinking again following the emotional trauma she incurred by being caught in the middle of Hulk's attack on Manhattan.[volume & issue needed]

In Avengers: The Initiative #6, Floyd questions whether government agent Henry Peter Gyrich can carry out his assignment to enforce elements of the Superhuman Registration Act.[volume & issue needed] Gyrich retaliates by ordering an assistant to contact the IRS and have Floyd's taxes audited.[volume & issue needed] Floyd also appeared among the reporters after the clone of Thor attacked Camp Hammond.[2]

During the Secret Empire storyline, Sally Floyd interviewed Captain America who was the leader of Hydra ever since he was brainwashed into being a Hydra sleeper agent by Red Skull's clone using the powers of Kobik. She did this interview on Frontline Live after Hydra took over the United States. Sally was requested not to ask Captain America about Hydra's bombing of Las Vegas and asked about Hydra's regime. When Sally Floyd blurted out the Las Vegas incident during the escalated interview, she ended up arrested by a Hydra-controlled S.H.I.E.L.D. and was imprisoned.[3]
