Mutant power of telekinesis, an ability that enables her to move, lift, or control solid objects with her thoughts.
Nancy was originally a member of a rival basketball team playing against May "Mayday" Parker's team. May (secretly Spider-Girl) was shocked when her team lost, as it seemed weird things were happening during the game. The ball seemed to move on its own during crucial plays. May's spider-sense kept buzzing whenever she got near Nancy, and curious to know more, she followed Nancy as Spider-Girl. While following Nancy, she observed the girl moving objects without touching them. Spider-Girl confronted Nancy, who admitted that she was a mutant with low-level telekinetic powers. Spider-Girl informed Nancy that she hoped that Nancy wasn't using her powers for her own personal gain. Nancy felt bad, and quit her basketball team. Spider-Girl realized that she was guilty of cheating as well, as she had used her spider-like powers during games, and quit her team too.
Nancy later transferred to May's high school, and began dating May's crush, Jack Jameson. At first, May was jealous of Nancy, but the two soon became friends (despite a few misunderstandings). But when Nancy accidentally used her telekinesis in public, she exposed herself as a mutant. Later that night, several students tried to vandalize Nancy's house, to make her leave town. Spider-Girl intervened, and learned that the leader of the vandals was Brad Miller himself, and was shocked by his racism towards mutants. But when Jubilee offered Nancy a place with the X-People (a future incarnation of the X-Men), Nancy accepted.
