Neena was one of many children born to the U.S. government’s Project: Armageddon, designed to genetically engineer the perfect weapon using a precognitive mutant named Beatrice. One of only two survivors from numerous attempts, Neena was stolen away by Beatrice’s cult, the Armajesuits, and delivered to a Chicago priest, remaining in his care until her own mutant powers manifested.

Neena forged a distinguished career in many fields of covert activity, both as an agent of various organizations and governments, and as a freelance mercenary. Early on Domino was assigned to bodyguard Milo Thurman - a prodigy in predicting world events. She and Thurman fell in love and eventually married, and he coined her nickname “Domino.” Their relationship was short-lived, however, as a raid by A.I.M. forced Thurman into even deeper government cover, and his superiors told him that Domino had been killed. Domino joined the mercenary Six Pack, meeting Cable and forging a lasting and often intimate friendship. Domino was once captured by the arms dealer Tolliver, secretly Cable’s estranged son Tyler, who had one of his agents impersonate Domino in Cable’s new strike-team X-Force. Cable ultimately freed her and she came to aid him in his role as X-Force’s leader.

Later, Milo was captured by Donald Pierce and his cyborg Reavers. Pierce intended to siphon away Thurman’s prophetic abilities, and managed to gain some of it before Domino arrived to rescue Thurman. Domino defeated the Reavers but was unable to save Thurman in time from the fatal effects of Pierce’s information transfer process. Domino eventually sought to find out more about her past, and discovered Project: Armageddon was still active. Infiltrating the base, Domino was shocked to discover that she had a younger brother, Lazarus. Soon after, the Armajesuits arrived to kill Lazarus to prevent his mutant ability of controlling emotions from being used to destroy civilization. Domino defeated the Armajesuits and took Lazarus to the same priest that had cared for her as a child. After aiding Cable in an underground resistance that opposed the Neverland mutant death camp, Domino helped re-form X-Force.

Although her activities as member of the new Six Pack team, Domino recently joined Shatterstar and Caliban again, to free the 198 from the grounds, in the X-Mansion. Later, the Six Pack disbanded, after that the majority of the members had been captured and deported.
