She left the Legion temporarily after first joining as she said she had joined under false pretences.

Reboot versions

In post-Zero Hour continuity, she claimed that her name was Nura Schappin, which she had changed to Nal because, as she put it, "It just says I'm from Naltor y'know".

In parapsychology, precognition (from the Latin præ-, “prior to,” + cognitio, “a getting to know”) is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person perceives information about future places or events before they happen (as distinct from merely predicting them based on deductive reasoning and current knowledge). ...
