Dr. Moira MacTaggert is the daughter of the powerful Scots nobleman, Lord MacTaggert. She proved to be a brilliant student of the biological sciences with selected genetics as her specialty.
During the 1960's, Moira MacTaggert served as a CIA agent investigating Sebastian Shaw and his group, the Hellfire Club. After infiltrating one of their clubs in Las Vegas and witnessing Emma Frost and Azazel display their powers, she attempted to warn the CIA but was rebuffed.
Daunted, she sought out one of the leading experts in genetic mutation, Charles Xavier; a young graduate student at Oxford. After attending his thesis presentation, she approached him celebrating in a bar and questioned him about the validity of his claims. After reading her mind about what she had seen, he agreed to help her. The two fell in love with each other immediately, and their romance lasted for years.
She took him and his colleague Mystique to brief the CIA director about mutants. At first they were met with ridicule and then shock and fear when Raven proved their claims when she morphed into one of the agents. However, with the backing of an agent known only as The Man in Black, MacTaggert agreed to help them stop Shaw as a liaison of sorts between Charles' team and "Division X", the government department they operated under.
MacTaggert have participated in the team's mission to stop the Cuban Missile Crisis and helped bring down the Hellfire Club. After sharing a kiss with Charles at his mansion and christening his new team the X-Men, he erased her memory of their location so that she could not reveal it to the CIA, nor be made to tell them.
