Domino (but I believe this would actually be Copycat unknown to them, time traveling to the past before NM #98)
This is confusing- Sam and Tabitha meet Copycat/Domino in NM 98 and it's clearly intended to be a first meeting. Plus, Jimmy doesn't join X-Force until New Mutants 99 (although it's entirely possible that he had an adventure with the then-New Mutants off panel). So I'm not sure where this fits in continuity and if this is Copycat or the real Domino.

Cable makes some offhand remark that everyone will need to have their memories erased at the end of this mission. Presumably he recruited Warpath and Domino specifically for this mission -- then wiped their memories at the end of it -- then recruited them again later in NM #98-99. Clunky, but hey.

Then again, the recap page at the end says something like "where are Shatterstar and Feral? Washing their hair" -- so the real answer is likely that everyone in editorial missed the fact that none of these characters had actually joined the team yet.

I think this is probably Copycat. I seem to recall the real Domino saying that she was held captive for over a year, circa X-Force #11, but we should track down the exact quote to be sure.
