Punchout is a super-humanly strong mutant who lived in Genosha. Nothing else is known of her past but she joined the Genoshan Magistrates and the Press Gang. Here she fought the X-men and Cable multiple times in Genosha’s defence. She later helped defeat Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four and took him to Genosha.  Later when the island fell into civil war she remained with her Press Gang friends to fight against the rebels. When Magneto rose to power in Genosha she seemingly disappeared and has not been seen since. It is unknown if she retained her powers after M-Day.
