As a member of the Acolytes, Scanner served as a scout that would survey the area before the others arrived, using her mutant ability to project an astral form to travel great distances. She was often seen as weak by the other Acolytes, and she lacked the confidence that the others had. During the fall of Avalon, the Acolytes' space station, Scanner survived with the help of Unuscione, Cargill, the Kleinstocks, and Cyclops. After crashlanding in the Australian Outback, the group found the X-Men's former base thanks to Scanner's scouting. She served alongside the Acolytes in many of their other missions, but was eventually depowered due to Scarlet Witch.
