Name: Summer James
Code Name: Null
Weight: 96 lbs.
Grade Level: 9
Background: Summer James was having a typical privileged childhood experience growing up in New Haven, Connecticut. Her father is an orthodontist and her mother is an elementary school teacher. So, while affluent, the James' family is far from rich. When shopping with her mother in New York one weekend, Summer learned a truth which would change her life: she, like many others, is a mutant. A fight broke out in the mall where they shopped, but this fight involved super-powered beings. As the fight spilled into the food court, she and her mother were in harm's way and her power manifested, and immediately stripped one of the combatants of his abilities. The fight ended shortly thereafter.
But not before it was discovered that Summer was the source of the interruption. When Professor X learned of her, he personally sought her out; he realized that her power, if properly channeled, could be a great asset to the X-Men. Within a few short days, Summer's parents agreed to transfer her to Xavier's Academy to continue her education and training. She's not terribly thrilled about it either.
Personality: Summer is a good kid with a sarcastic streak. She's intelligent, and just a little on the arrogant side. She's currently angry for having had her life turned upside-down.
Powers: Summer has the ability to totally shut off the powers of other mutants in her area completely, essentially turning them into normal humans. Currently, her power has a range of around 20 yards, and can impact only a single mutant at this time. This change is immediate, and affects both activated powers and physical enhancements.
There is no physical power display of her ability when it is activated subconsciously, though both she and the victim feel a tingle of energy while the power is activated. The few times when she has managed to activate it purposefully, white dots of energy flicker around her hands and the target.
Her ability, which has only recently been discovered, is almost entirely out of her control. It typically flares up when she is excited or scared, or almost any activity in which her heart rate is substantially elevated. She wears a heart rate monitor and tries to keep her pulse below 100 to avoid triggering her power.
Once activated, the nullification lasts until she calms down, or, in theory, when she wills it to end.
As a secondary power, Summer is able to detect mutants by sight. When she sees a mutant, she sees the same white dots of energy as above dancing around them as if it's an aura. This power is always on, as she hasn't yet developed the means to dismiss it.
Skills Summer, while bright, doesn't really excel at any one activity. The only exception is gymnastics, which she has performed regularly since she was seven.
