Andrea Margulies was one of the youngest students at the Xavier Institute. Prior to the invention of the school's training squad system, Rubbermaid was one of Emma Frost's numerous advisees. While Bishop and Sage were visiting the X-Mansion during a murder investigation, Rubbermaid and fellow students Tantra, Gloom, Silicon, and Zach decided to play pranks on the two X-Men. Rubbermaid attempted to wrap herself around Bishop, but Bishop managed to subdue the girl. In issue 22, it is revealed by Emma Frost that Jeffrey Garrett, a mutant who is accused of murder, has won Andrea heart. He is the reason why Bishop and Sage came to the X-Mansion. When they arrived again, Andrea wrapped herself around Jeffrey after he was shot by Sage so he would receive no further harm. When Jeffrey woke up, he told her to run, but she would not leave him. When Storm and Emma arrived, the children were all gone. The two rushed to the danger room where Bogan was. Oliver, aide to Mr. Bogan, who had Rubbermaid in his arms, fainted.
Following the formation of training squads, Rubbermaid was assigned a new advisor, Northstar, and was placed in Alpha Squadron along with her fellow student and close friend, Victor Borkowski. When Northstar was seemingly killed by Wolverine, former New Mutants member Karma took over as the squad's advisor.
However following Decimation, Rubbermaid lost her powers, earning her a seat on the bus back home. As the bus was departing a missile was fired into it, destroying the bus and killing her and many of the other depowered students aboard the bus.
