Born to a black maid and a white French movie director named Francois Truffaut Murmur was left with Hull House in Canada after her birth. Hull House was run by Department-H and after puberty when her mutant abilities kicked in she was recruited into the Canadian super hero team Alpha Flight. Vain and conceited she often flirted with her male teammates though she actively participated in battles against Mesmero and the X-men, facing down Maggott by herself.
