Fictional character biography

Sally Floyd, a journalist, first appeared in Generation M, a miniseries that followed the aftermath of the events of M-Day, the day on which millions of mutants lost their mutant abilities.

Floyd's daughter, Minnie, had died several months earlier due to a mutation that caused her to grow younger and younger from the age 2. In the wake of this tragedy, Floyd developed alcoholism.

Taking over from Jessica Jones, Floyd investigated several M-Day cases, writing about well-known mutants who had lost their powers and producing a series of article profiles.

She worked with former X-Man Jubilee, a depowered mutant, and her investigation led her to Warren Worthington (Archangel), who pretended to be depowered and with whom she may have had a previous relationship.[1] Archangel used Floyd as a pawn to catch a serial killer known as Ghoul who was targeting mutants for death. Afterward, Floyd entered rehab and began a friendship with reporter Ben Urich of the Daily Bugle.

Floyd's next appearance was in Civil War: Front Line. By the end, she and Urich had resigned from their respective newspapers and formed the online newspaper; they later form the print newspaper Front Line. The two were split over the controversial Superhuman Registration Act, with Floyd initially opposed, but later becoming a supporter. Later, during World War Hulk: Front Line, Floyd started drinking again following the emotional trauma she incurred by being caught in the middle of Hulk's attack on Manhattan.

In Avengers: The Initiative #6, Floyd questions whether government agent Henry Peter Gyrich can carry out his assignment to enforce elements of the Superhuman Registration Act. Gyrich retaliates by ordering an assistant to contact the IRS and have Floyd's taxes audited. Floyd also appeared among the reporters after the clone of Thor attacked Camp Hammond.[2]
