Profile On... PLASMA!
This obscure late 1980s - early 1990s seductress may have the distinction of being romantically-challenged Alex Summers' worst girlfriend. Initially masquerading as a “damsel in distress,” this Irish cailín turned out to be quite the “femme fatale.” A secret cultist and niece of one of Havok's greatest foes, (the Living Monolith), her hunger for power and mental instability doomed any chance the two had at an enduring romance. Given her “divine” view of herself, her ambitions were never limited to mere romance anyway. As the new queen of the Cult of the Living Pharaoh and a latent mutant, she positioned herself quickly as a prominent international terrorist leader before meeting her end while battling Ghost Rider and Moon Knight. Read about the brief reign of Plasma.
Update on... SCARLET WITCH
The last time we checked in on the Scarlet Witch, she was a mutant, the daughter of Magneto and both amnesic and on the run after Decimating the mutant population. Amazing what can happen in fifteen years! Wanda has undergone so many revisions since the House of M... she has learned Magneto is not her father and met her real mother. No longer a mutant, she has adjusted to the High Evolutionary's artificially-engineered powers by devoting herself more fully to witchcraft than ever before. She has also made amends to the mutant race, first by aiding the Messiah Hope in undoing the Decimation spell, and more recently by creating the Eldritch Orchard to aid mutant resurrection on Krakoa throughout time and space. Perhaps somewhere in this Marvel Multiverse of Madness, there's even a Wanda who is still a mutant...
Update on... MISTER SINISTER
We wrap up Hellions Month and our season of Dawn of X Events with an update on the oldest outstanding character article on UXN. Literally 20 years have passed since the Bring on the Bad Guys' article for Mister Sinister was published. In that time, Nathaniel Essex has reinvented himself several times. The mad geneticist finally moved on from his fears of Apocalypse's ascension and focused entirely on his own pursuits. He has harnessed the power of the Celestials, sought to tame the Phoenix Force, and played god with humans, mutants and Inhumans, among others. A grim necessity for Krakoa's resurrection protocols due to his vast database of genetic material, Mister Sinister was a reluctant inclusion to the Quiet Council. Since the founding of the mutant nation, Sinister has proven himself brazenly untrustworthy and heedless of consequences as he trusts his position in the Council is irreplaceable. Only time will tell if his arrogance will prove his undoing.
Spotlight on... EMPATH!
Elitist, pompous, and sadistic, Manuel de la Rocha stuck out as the cruelest member of the original Hellions, using his powers over others' emotions without restraint. His love for the New Mutant Magma wasn't enough to change his heart and so, Manny has found himself a pawn to many over the years from the White Queen to the Red Queen. Most recently, he reentered the spotlight as a member of the new Hellions where he proved that even in the age of Krakoa, some mutants never truly change. Control your emotions as you learn about the twisted history of EMPATH.
Update On... PSYLOCKE II
Psylocke is back - but not as we know her! The long-dead, mysterious woman sometimes known as Kwannon has made a significant impact on Krakoa as field-leader of the Hellions. She's made amends with Betsy Braddock, helped Greycrow deal with his inner demons and become a Great Captain of Krakoa. She has no time for idiots, and is about to set sail on a new adventure to help mutants around the globe. But will she ever find the peace she needs within herself? Time will tell, but in the meantime, check out our all-new, all-updated Spotlight on Psylocke II.
