Cordelia Frost is the youngest of the Frost siblings. Her older sisters Adrienne and Emma are/were both talented and manipulative women who also happened to be powerful psionic mutants. It’s been rumored that Cordy is an empath of the highest order. Cordy first appeared in the pages of Gen X as a high flying debutante. She had been vacationing in Samoa when she’d become in perilous trouble. The manly Mondo saved her. She and the hunky Samoan mutant became friends (With benefits maybe? More like probably!) until her ambition got the best of her and “Whammo!” she caught him in a moment of weakness and psi-blasted him. Cordy burst onto the New England scene as a manipulative vixen angling to get into the inner circle of Shinobi Shaw’s Hell Fire Club. She turned Mondo over to the bisexual greatness that is Shinobi, but he was unimpressed (Likes Twinks I guess). Soon after, Mondo was stolen from her by unknown assailants. What a bummer she lost her meal ticket and her sex toy!
Later it was shown that Cordy was in trouble for her previous dealings with Mondo and she sought out Emma’s help/protection. She wasn’t exactly forthright with Emma about her and Mondo’s previous dealings. When Mondo, his “Uncle” Black Tom, and Juggy crashed the Gen X pad, the Gen X’rs protected sweet Cordy and bested the villians, but after doing so Emma deduced that Cordy had been less than pristine with Mondo and told her to get out of her sight and not to come back. Cordy has since listened to and followed directions and not been seen again.
It’s unknown if she knows that her middle sister snuffed out her eldest sister. Cordy is a survivor though and likely has landed on her feet. She was portrayed in the Emma Frost series as the “Lost” sibling and that likely bears true.
Did you know?: Cordy’s power set is VERY much up in the air. She’s been described as “The Charles Xavier” of Empaths and some bitter interneters have blasted this as fan fiction. Can you believe their nerve? Maybe Brian Cronin should solve this mystery in his Comic Book Legends column!
