Within the context of the stories, U-Go Girl can teleport herself and others (in a radius of five feet) across the globe, although this process is physically draining. Edie becomes pregnant by a young drifter when she is fifteen, and her parents decide to raise the girl as Edie's sister rather than daughter. Edie's power of teleportation fully manifests when she first looks at her daughter's face and feels a powerful urge to "get away." She teleports to Los Angeles.[1] Edie struggles as a waitress and an actress until she becomes smitten with X-Force leader Zeitgeist and decides to try out for the team. She perfects her "aim" with her teleportation and comes up with the codename "Tele-Girl"; she becomes U-Go Girl after she accidentally flashes a crowd during her team tryout and someone screams, "You go, girl!"[2]

Later, most of the team dies in a fight while on a mission in New York. Only U-Go Girl, Anarchist, and Doop survive. Edie is heavily traumatized by holding Zeitgeist's upper torso as he dies.[3] The team later rebels against their leader Coach, who attempts to rape a temporarily disoriented Edie. She recovers just enough to kill him. After a period of destabilizing powers, U-Go Girl heads home to face the ghosts of her pasts and reunite with her young daughter, Katie, though she maintains the fiction of simply being a much older sister. She also enters into a relationship with her teammate Orphan.[4] Edie later dies during a publicity stunt trip to a space station,[5] and X-Force is renamed X-Statix in her honor.[6]
