Joystick possesses superhuman strength, agility, and speed. She can become a being of "pure action" at will which further enhances her speed, agility, and reflexes. She carries batons that she can charge with energy that is released on impact or as energy blasts generated by striking the batons together.
Joystick attended the University of Arizona, before having a near death experience. Deciding to live life to the max she donned the guise of Joystick and took up a sponsorship from Chu Chi Huan (of Chi-Huan Associates), so that she could take part in the Great Game. Part of the Great Game was to hunt down and defeat various opponents, in Joystick's case these included Scarlet Spider , Kaine and El Toro Negro.
Later on Joystick was part of the Crimson Cowl's Masters Of Evil, however the team was defeated by the Thunderbolts. Recently Joystick rejoined the Great Game, trying to take down Mister Fantastic and Namor. However, the sponsors of the Great Game activated a self-destruct program in Joystick's suit. The Thunderbolts and Mister Fantastic managed to save Joystick from the self destruct, and Joystick helped the heroes save members of the U.N.
Joystick then joined the Thunderbolts, taking part in missions to stop Batroc's Brigade and the Purple Man.
