Lupa possesses claws, and enhanced pheromones that can put others under her thrall. She can also control some animals, such as her Dire Wolves. She has utilized the Blood Lotus flower, which also has will-sapping properties.
Brainchild created a new Mutate, Lupa, bestowing powers upon one of the indigenous savages from the Savage Land, just as the other Mutates had been created by Magneto. Lupa was sent by Brainchild to take mental control over the Beast. She found him unconscious and administered the Blood Lotus flower to him, which would sap his will. Then, using her pheromones, she ensured he would be under her command.
Lupa was there when the Beast awakened, with her Dire Wolves standing nearby. He was initially frightened, but she calmed him and they quickly allied. Lupa led Beast into the nearby human settlement, where many of the Saurids and some of the other X-Men had been taken. They met Rogue, Thunderbird, Delage, and C'rel there, and Beast enthusiastically proclaimed his desire to help the humans protect themselves from the savage Saurids that warred against them. Lupa and Beast embraced, while Brainchild monitored them from afar.
Amphibius, Barbarus, Brainchild, Gaza, Lupa, and Whiteout looked on as Leash tried to bring Rogue under her control, but Rogue's defenses were too strong. Lupa assured Brainchild that Beast was under her thrall, but he chided her, ensuring that she would follow his plans and commands. He promised to hold her accountable if anything went wrong. Lupa rejoined Beast and the others, and they joined the city's occupants in war against their Saurid opponents. Lupa and Leash ran ahead of the others to scout, and stopped him from warning the others about a pending attack. When battle broke out, Lupa sent her Dire Wolves to aid Beast in battle against a tyrannosaur. Rogue and Thunderbird rushed forward to help resolve the battle.
The Mutates attacked the X-Men and their allies in the city and swiftly defeated them, then enslaved the Saurids and humans, Leash making many of them surrender themselves to captivity. Brainchild watched as Leash worked to assert control over C'rel, Lupa taunting her for her struggle to do so. When Rogue flew forward, punching Storm, Brainchild hit her with a mental blast that made her feel as if all the minds she'd ever absorbed were attacking her. Lupa ordered Beast against Brainchild, but he punched her instead just before being attacked by Storm. her into Brainchild, knocking him out. Beast then scared away the Dire Wolves with a growl. The Mutates were soon defeated and placed into custody.
