History: Little is known about the early life of Margaret Power before she married Dr. James Power and gave berth to the group of pre-adolescent heroes known as Power Pack. When her physicist husband developed the designs for a matter-antimatter converter as an alternate source of energy, Margaret Power was kidnapped with her husband by the reptilian race of Z'nrks, known as "Snarks". Having learned of the invention, and realizing its destructive capabilities, the Snarks hoped to extract its design from Margaret Power's husband, for use as a weapon. Power was rescued unharmed by her four children, having received super powers from an extraterrestrial sorcerer, a Kymellian called Aelfyre Whitemane, nicknamed "Whitey". She retained no knowledge of having been kidnapped.

Shortly thereafter, the Power family moved to New York City. There, weeks later, Margaret Power sustained several serious injuries as the result of an accidental encounter with a rampaging menace called Kurse. She was transported to the hospital by the entity known as the Beyond, who was originally responsible for reanimating the crippled Kurse. Power was hospitalized for several weeks, but fully recovered.

During her recovery, however, Power suffered a second great trauma when all four of her children disappeared while claiming to be sledding in Central Park. The team; as Power Pack, had actually become embroiled in a second attack from the Snarks, the goal of the alien race this time being to steal the Kymellian powers which the children possessed. The children escaped their captors and returned to their parents days later, with their Kymellian allies. However, anticipating that the Power parents would not be able to accept the truth about their children, and their association with aliens, the Kymellian, Lord Yrik Whitemane, altered the brain patterns of the Power parents. The reprogramming made the Powers highly susceptible to any suggestion from their rationale presented by their children to the adult Powers. One side effect of the reprogramming was the chance of an emotional backlash which could emotionally cripple the parents if they were ever violently confronted with a truth which different from the children's professed version.

Such a violent confrontation occurred during the period of chaos in Manhattan which was known as Inferno, when the Power parents were confronted with their children's identities as Power Pack. Unable to accept, under Whitemane's programming, that their children had lied to them, the Powers became emotional wrecks, breaking periodically into uncontrollable hysterics. The parents belief in their children's infallibility was later restored by the children with the aid of the New Mutants. Using the solid illusion casting abilities of the mutant, Danielle Moonstar, the children convinced their parents that the New Mutants had replaced, the children with realistic duplicates of themselves, and the Power children themselves had never possessed any extraordinary abilities. This reaffirmation of the status quo reestablished the parents' belief in their children, and restored the parents' emotional stability. However, it is unclear what the final result would be if the Powers are ever again violently confronted with the truth before this reprogramming is removed or altered.
