Madelyne Pryor

Really this is more an opportunity for me to showcase the fruits of my obsession with Madelyne Pryor than anything else. If anyone has any other pics they'd like to post, by all means. The net needs more Maddie.

The enigmatic mastermind known as Mister Sinister cloned Madelyne Pryor from a cell sample obtained from the X-Man named Jean Grey. Through advanced scientific means, Sinister caused the clone to grow into an adult double of Grey far more quickly than a normal human being would reach adulthood.

After the sacrifice of the Phoenix Force's human form, it sent the portion of the original Jean Grey's personality that it had possessed back to Earth, keyed to return to a body within Grey's genetic code. This portion of Grey's consciousness made contact with Grey's original body, which still lay in suspended animation in a coccoon at the bottom of Jamaica Bay. Appalled on receiving the memories of the destruction wreaked by the Phoenix Force, the part of Jean Grey's consciousness in her original body rejected this other portion. The latter portion then infused itself into the body of the clone of Grey that Sinister had created, giving the clone consciousness for the first time.

The clone awoke, her mind filled with the memory of the phoenix Force's "suicide", and called out the name "Scott", the name of Grey's lover, Scott Summers. The clone did not have all of Grey's memories, and many of those the clone did have were only vague. Sinister then programmed the clone with a set of false memories and named her "Madelyne Pryor", since she had a "prior" existence as Jean Grey. To explain away her memories of the Phoenix Force's last moments in Jean's form, Sinister gave Pryor the false memory of being an airplane pilot who had been the sole survivor of a fiery plane crash.

Sinister also programmed Pryor to meet and fall in love with Scott Summers. However, since Pryor had part of Jean Grey's consciousness, she was already predisposed to do so. Sinister's plan was that Pryor would bear Scott Summers a child who would possess the superhuman genetic potential of both Jean Grey and Scott Summers - something Sinister had long sought for his own personal gain. Sinister would then kidnap the child and take it under his control.

Sinister sent Pryor to Alaska and placed her in a job as a pilot for North Star Airways, the air freight company run by Scott Summers' grandparents, Philip and Deborah Summers. It was in Alaska that Scott Summers first mer Pryor, and was immediately struck by her exact resemblance to Jean Grey, who was believed dead at the time. [Uncanny X-Men #168]

Summers and Pryor began falling in love with each other, but Summers was haunted by suspicions that Pryor was indeed Grey, returned from the dead. He told Pryor about Grey, unaware at this point of her true relationship to Grey. Pryor began worrying that Summers was still really in love with Grey, not herself.

Subsequently, the X-Men's foe Mastermind used his psionic powers to make the X-Men believe that Pryor really was Grey, turned back into the mad Dark Phoenix. Mastermind planned to manipulate the X-Men into killing Pryor so that their spirits would be crushed on discovering they had actually murdered an innocent woman. Mastermind, too, was unaware of what Pryor really was. However, Cyclops realized that they were being manipulated by Mastermind, whom the X-Men then easily defeated. Shortly afterwards, convinced that Pryor was not Grey, Summers married her. [Uncanny X-Men #175]

Maddie Bio continued:

Sometime later, Pryor was flying a Canadian-American environmental survey team over the Arctic Circle, with Scott aboard, when the plane encountered a mysterious storm and crashed. Pryor and the other passengers discovered a mystical "firefountain" that bestowed superhuman abilities upon them. Pryor gained the power to heal any mental or physical injury or deformity, and took the name Anodyne. However, the firefountain proved to be the creation of the Asgardian god Loki, and had the side effects of depriving the recipients of these new powers of their imaginations and draining the life energies of beings with magical powers. Loki withdrew the powers the firefountain bestowed, and Pryor lost her healing abilities. [X-Men and Alpha Flight #1-2]

By this time Pryor was pregnant, and months later she gave birth to her son, Nathan Christopher Summers. Shortly after the infant was born, Cyclops and his fellow X-Man Storm held a contest to determine who would lead the X-Men. As yet, Pryor was unaware of her own latent mutant powers, but she did not want Scott to divide his time between her and the X-Men. She experienced a vision in which she saw the combat between Storm and Cyclops, and subconciously used her own awakening powers to influence the outcome. As a result, Scott lost, and he accompanied Pryor and the baby to Anchorage, Alaska. [Uncanny X-Men #201]

Strains continued to grow between Scott and Pryor, whose fears that Scott loved Jean Grey and not her continued to mount. When Jean Grey finally emerged from suspended animation, Scott went to meet her in New York City, even though Pryor warned him that if he left, their marriage was over. Scott remained in New York City where he, Jean, and three of the other original X-Men formed a new organization called X-Factor. [X-Factor (1st series) #1]

Learning that the original Jean Grey was still alive, Mister Sinister decided to eliminate Pryor, lest the truth about her origin be exposed. Sinister bought North Star Airways and hired Pryor to fly a cargo plane to San Francisco, mentally influencing her to bring her son along. Sinister then sent his team of mutant assassins, the Marauders, to kill Pryor and capture her son. Pryor used her own newfound powers to defend herself, although baby Nathan was kidnapped. Pryor was found by the X-Men who took her into their protection. Sinister placed baby Nathan into the orphanage he controlled. [Uncanny X-Men #221]

Meanwhile, Sinister had eliminated virtually all evidence of Pryor's existence. Thus Scott could find no trace of her until he saw her in a telecast from Dallas, Texas, of the X-Men's battle against the forces of the mystical entity known as the Adversary. Pryor and the X-Men seemingly perished during the counter, and neither Summers nor the world at large learned that the sorceress Roma restored Pryor and the X-Men to life, and that they took up residence in an abandoned town in outback Australia. [Uncanny X-Men #226]

Pryor now passionately hated Scott for leaving her. She volunteered to take charge of the X-Men's newfound computer system, and then manipulated the computers to censor the news they received about X-Factor so as to turn the X-Men against Summers' new team.

Pryor then began experiencing dreams sent her by the demons N'astirh and S'ym that exploited her deep insecurities and tempted her with offers of power. The dreams further awakened Pryor's latent powers and strengthened the darker side of her personality.

Pryor was then abducted to the mutant-enslaving island nation of Genosha by the Genoshan Press Gang who had found Pryor with a mutant who had escaped their country. The vengeful side of Pryor's personality grew much stronger during her captivity, and her latent powers continued to emerge.

Finally, Pryor's powers fully emerged, and due to her demonic corruption she took on the identity of the Goblin Queen. Although both N'astirh and Mister Sinister attempted to control Pryor, neither proved able to make Pryor their pawn. N'astirh launched an invasion of Earth from the other-dimensional realm known as Limbo, but the invasion was repelled by the combined forces of the X-Men and X-Factor, and both N'astirh and Sinister were defeated.

However, Pryor had managed to recover her son and planned to sacrifice him atop the Empire State Building in an occult ritual that would permanently link Limbo and Earth. By killing the baby, she would also take revenge on Scott Summers. The X-Men and X-Factor opposed Pryor, but she surrounded herself and Jean Grey in a force bubble of extraordinary strength whilst they fought each other. Grey held her own against her far more powerful opponent, and the X-Men and X-Factor finally succeeded in breaking through the force bubble. Pryor then unleashed a massive amount of force in order to destroy both herself and her opponents, but the mutant heroes succeeded in shielding themselves and baby Nathan from the effects of the blast.

Dying, Pryor linked her mind to Grey's, intending to take Grey into death with her. Pryor died, but Grey survived, taking back into herself the portion of her personality that Pryor had gained from the Phoenix Force. [X-Factor (1st series) #39]

Scott Summers and Jean Grey together raised Scott and Madelyne's son, Nathan, until they were forced to send him into the future to save his life from a techno-organic virus. Nathan returned to the X-Men's time as the adult mutant soldier known as Cable.

The genetic counterpart of Cable in the alternate timeline known as the Age of Apocalypse was Nate Grey, the mutant also known as X-Man. When Nate Grey first arrived in the X-Men's reality, he subconsciously sought to find his friend, the Jean Grey of his own reality. Nate Grey's psionic powers are so enormous that he thus subconsciously re-created Jean Grey's duplicate, Madelyne Pryor. Hence, Pryor became a "psionic shell" that duplicated her personality, powers, and memories. [X-Man #5]

At first the re-created Pryor befriended Nate, but as her powers re-emerged, so did her memories and her sinister personality. Lured away from Nate by the energy-draining mutant Selene, Pryor gained admission to the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club as it's new Black Rook, and became the lover of Sebastian Shaw. In time, and with the unintended assistance of Shaw's aide Tessa, Pryor regained her full mutant potential.

Pryor found Nate once more, and he revealed to her how he had re-created her. Pryor then attacked Nate, but she was repelled by Nate and Jean Grey. [X-Man #25]

It was later revealed that Nate was subconciously keeping Pryor's re-created form intact with his own incredible powers. Upon realizing this, Nate reclaimed his energies and thus Pryor ceased to be.

As the Goblin Queen, Pryor possessed enormous psionic abilities which allowed her to manipulate and generate energy to utilize for flight, to create powerful concussive force blasts, and to shield herself within force fields, among other feats.

Mutant X Maddie was much more well adjusted as a person, had the family we'd always wanted her to have, and above all... has her own action figure. geek
