Explanation of the conversion:

History: Dani born in Bounder, Colorado and was raised by her grandparents. Her grandfather was wise and taught her much. Shortly after Dani's powers manifested and her grandfather died, Dani moved to New York to join Xavier's Institute For Higher Learning and to become a member of Professor Charles Xavier's mutant team, the New Mutants. Dani was an original member of the New Mutants along with Cannonball II, Sunspot, Wolfsbane, and Karma (Marvel Graphic Novel #4).

Power Pack #44 Dani was recruited by Professor X as a member of the New Mutants. Initially she had the ability to mind link with animals and animal-like mutants and form illusions based on her opponents fears or desires. During an encounter with the High Evolutionary her powers were boosted to the level where the illusions she created were solid. She used these powers during the Inferno to create duplicates of the Power Pack kids, when their parents had learned of their super powers. They then convinced the parents that the duplicates without powers were their children and the kids with powers were mutant duplicates that were planted to protect the kids from the Bogey Man. Thanks to a little telepathic convincing from Aerial II they believed it. After they went to bed she switched the kids and duplicates back (Power Pack #44).

After Xavier's school was blown up, she and the other New Mutants encountered the X-Terminators II and their ship who were under attack by a sea monster. Along with the Namor the Submariner she helped stop the monster by wishing up enough dynamite to blow by the beast. She and the other New Mutants were invited by X-Factor to live on their ship (New Mutants #76).

She left the New Mutants to become a Valkyrie, and later an under cover agent for S.H.I.E.L.D. infiltrating the second Mutant Liberation Front. Some time while she was either with the Valkyrie or M.L.F. her powers mutated to allow her to make psychic arrows that stunned her opponents with fear. From there she joined X-Force with a number of her old New Mutants friends. Dani participated in the assault on the home of the Gamesmaster in the Alps where the Gamesmaster mind controlled her into attacking Kymaera and Nova with her psychic arrows (New Warriors #46).

Recently her powers have begun to alter again allowing her to summon quantum flame and to heal with a touch.

Powers: Dani can make an opponent experience their deepest fears by striking them with her psychic arrows, stunning them. She can establish a mental rapport with most animals. She has lately started to exhibit new powers that she does not understand like the ability to heal with a touch and to project quantum fire blasts.
