Bio:
Mickey's friend, Mike Jeffries, found the Torpedo armor in a box in his family's attic. Preferring to go in his homemade costume, he gave Mickey the suit to wear to a comic book convention. When a team of aliens focused in on the energy signature created by Mickey's suit, they attacked the convention, only to be defeated by Mickey. At first, she chose to use the suit only for quick transportation, flying across the ocean to go shop and things like that. However, when she came upon an illegal shipping operation run by Sea Urchin, she teamed up with the New Warriors to take it down. The next time Turbo was seen, Mike Jeffries was wearing the armor during the Forces of Darkness storyline. Mickey would again go into action when Air Force attempted a hit on Nova and Mike, training in the Turbo armor. She did not actually use the armor, but helped turn the battle in the Warriors' favor.

It quickly became apparent to Mickey, the Warriors, and eventually Mike, that she was the better Turbo. Therefore, when the new team of Warriors was formed for the Time and Time Again storyline, she was chosen to go into action. After the adventure, she was offered part-time membership with the team, eventually becoming a full member when she and Alex Power were brought in by Nova to help fight the Undertow.

Eventually, it was revealed that the costume was in fact the original Torpedo Armour, commissioned by the United States government, working secretly in conjunction with Volx, the Dire Wraith queen, as a suitable armor to fight Rom with. The first volume of New Warriors finished with a story in which Volx killed Mike and stole the armor from him. After the Warriors defeated Volx, Mickey offered to share joint control of the armor with Hindsight, the team's non-powered strategist. However, this would never be followed up on.

Mickey would then become a central part of the team during the series' brief second volume. Firestrike (Dalton Beck), a member of Joe Silvermane's super-powered team Heavy Mettle, was hired to seduce Mickey and kill her. However, he would change his mind after falling in love with her. The team eventually found out his true identity, and he helped them put Joe behind bars, although it caused him to leave Mickey as he went into the Witness Relocation Program.

After a period of absence from any Marvel books, Mickey resurfaced as the founder/organizer of Excelsior. A team of former teen heroes, Mickey, along with Phil Urich, brought together her old teammate, Darkhawk, and former teen heroes Ricochet, Lightspeed, and Chamber. Although the idea was to be a community outreach group, and not a costumed team, immediately after formation a secret benefactor hired Excelsior to hunt down and "help" the group known as The Runaways.
