Bio: Sally Floyd was a journalist for The Alternative, a tabloid magazine struggling to reach readers in a city dominated by heavyweights like the Daily Bugle. Her first series, the Mutant Diaries was critically acclaimed but her popularity since wavered. When her baby daughter, Minnie, died she went off into the deepend. She became notorious for being an alcoholic with a severe liberal bias. Her temper got her barred from several press conferences and has a standing rivalry with Congressman Sykes.
Then M-Day hit. Floyd began writing a regular column about mutants who have lost their powers, starting with former Generation X member Chamber. The column, dubbed the "Ex-Mutant Journals", received national attention overnight. Using this column, Floyd overcame her depression over the death of her daughter and her alcoholism. By the end of the Generation M miniseries, she is on her way to recovery.
