"Have a little respect for the dead," she growled, "or go fucking join them."
Sarah gets her chance for revenge - it doesn't go as she planned.
While working out in a gym in town, Sarah Morlocke was approached by Edward Eberts, a former lab technician with the Tearaway program. He had returned to the Army when it was shut down, attached to the Marauders unit that was formed at Fort Bragg. Present as a support unit at the scene of the Morlock Massacre, the incident unhinged him, leading him to save both Artie Maddicks and Miles Blaire before fleeing. Driven deeper into paranoia and insanity by his guilt, he had built the men up as vicious murderers, unaware of the full story.
His file gave names to the men who killed her family, including Major John Greycrow, who she had trained with only months before. Determined for revenge, Sarah left for the Morlock tunnels, where Eberts had claimed they were hiding. On entering the tunnel, Sarah promptly ran afoul of the Marauders who seemed to confirm all of Eberts stories. What she did not know was that these were the first generation of Dr. Nathaniel Essex's experiments in cloning, out of the original team. While they believed themselves to be the original articles, Sarah was actually facing clones.
While Sarah was able to kill several and badly injure some, their sheer power eventually caused her to fall and by all appearances die. Jonothon Starsmore accidentally revealed what Sarah had gone to do, and this was confirmed by Nathan Dayspring, after speaking to Clarice Ferguson and Angelo Espinosa about it. A team of X-Men (including Dazzler, Storm and Beast) entered the tunnels and into a fierce fight with the Marauders before forcing them to retreat and retrieving Marrow.
Thanks to her remarkable healing factor and second heart, Sarah was able to recover from her near fatal wounds, while the rest of the mansion strongly condemned both her actions and involving others into it.
