In Uncanny X-Men #122, X-Men member Storm (Ororo) visited the Harlem apartment where she lived as an infant. She found the neighborhood had deteriorated substantially and her family's old apartment was now a drug den.

Some of the druggies attacked her. Bluey, Johnnie and Frankie were teen druggies who attacked Storm (thinking she might be a police officer). These three were the only druggies mentioned by name in this issue, but a few other were seen.

In an interesting example of continuity and character re-use, one of the druggies showed up much late during the "Operation: Zero Tolerance" crossover storyline. A former druggie named Carter, who had been at that event in Uncanny X-Men #122, was seen, clearly reformed and sober, working at Our Mother of Mercy Hospital.
