What has been going on with Sage lately? I haven't read a comic with her in it in months.

Nothing good. From New Excalibur 20 on, there has been a downward spiral into the lowest depths of suck.

Last NEX arc: Sage dyes her hair blonde and infiltrates Albion's gang of Captain Britain wannabees as "Diana Fox".
She turns out to be completely inept at undercover work.
Sage makes a poor attempt at stopping Albion from using a vaguely described magical gizmo to knock out the UK's technology. She fails, and is zapped by the gizmo with the result that she forgets her true identity and believes herself to be Diana Fox. She spends the rest of the series fighting on Albion's side, killing Shadow Cyclops and Shadow Beast in the process. In a nonsensical scene in the last issue, Sage overcomes the "Diana Fox" personality and returns to her true self.

Sage doesn't do much in Die by the Sword. In the first issue, she mopes around, claims that she's wanted for interrogation, and says that if she were them she'd lock herself up or put a bullet through her head.
In the last issue, after a bunch of irrelevant cack, Sage is filled with all the knowledge of the dying Roma, who neglects to first obtain consent.

Exiles 100 and New Exiles 1 and 5 see Sage hallucinating because she can't handle Roma's vast knowledge. Rather than take any productive action to deal with the situation, Sage has fistfights with her hallucinations.

In New Exiles 5 and 6, Sage accompanies Cat and Morph to a semi-medieval world where dragons exist. Sage acquires the most ridiculous costume in the history of comics and begins using TP.
In the current arc, Sage continues wearing the ridiculous costume. She uses TP, has "There are too many, I can't handle all their thoughts/emotions" moments, and telepathically blocks Alterna-Havok's access to his powers. Later, she flies, and reminisces about what a wonderful and fun adventure her hellish life in the Hindu Kush mountains was.

All in all, total garbage. There hasn't been a single worthwhile panel since NXL 19.
