Base of operations: (current) Professor Xavier's School
for Gifted Youngsters, Massachusetts Academy, Snow Valley, Massachusetts,
(former) Monaco, Algeria
Group affiliation: Generation X
First appearance: UNCANNY X-MEN #316
History: Of all of the students who have attended Professor
Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, the mutant girl called
M is the most mysterious.
M, also known as Monet St. Croix, is a teenage Algerian who
lived in Monaco and is the daughter of Cartier St. Croix, the
wealthy former president of several corporations.
Monet first came in contact with many of her future classmates
at Xavier's School when she and they were captured by the alien
techno-organic race known as the Phalanx. Following the defeat
of the Phalanx, Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men,
decided to see to it that M and her fellow teenage mutant captives
were instructed in the uses of their powers. Therefore, he established
a new version of his School for Gifted Youngsters at the Massachusetts
Academy in Snow Valley, Massachusetts. M and her fellow students
thus became the team known as Generation X.
As time passed there was a series of surprising revelations
about the usually aloof M. It turned out that the silent aborigine
mutant Gateway had been her mentor. It was revealed that Generation
X's most implacable enemy, Emplate, was actually her brother
Mariu. Oddly, she would at times go into an autistic state when
she engaged in intense thought, and at other times she would
shift from her usual mature, sophisticated personality into
a childlike one.
Recently Monet abruptly divided into two separate little girls,
the twin sisters Claudette and Nicole St. Croix. It appears
that these are her true, original forms, and at some point in
her past the two sisters merged into Monet, whose physical age
is the same as that of the combination of the twins' ages. It
also appears that the merger gives Monet superhuman abilities
that neither of the twins can utilize on her own. Even more
astonishing, after the twins merged again into Monet, she somehow
fused with Emplate to become a dangerous being called M-Plate.
As of now, the full story behind M and her different forms is
as yet to be revealed.
Height: (as M): 5 ft. 7 in.
Weight: (as M): 125 lbs.
Stength level:(as M): Superhuman Class 10 (at least)
Known superhuman powers: The twins Claudette and Nicole
St. Croix are mutants with the superhuman ability to fuse into
a single being, known as Monet St. Croix, or M, whose physical
age equals the combination of their chronological ages. (In
turn Monet can fuse with her brother Emplate to become the superhuman
being known as M-Plate.)
As Monet or M, she possesses various superhuman powers including
superhuman strength, the ability to fly, telepathic powers (whose
range is limited, though those limits have not been specifically
defined), and superhumanly acute night vision. She also possesses
extraordinary intelligence, although it is unclear whether it
reaches superhuman levels.
Other abilities: Due to her extraordinarily high intelligence,
M is an excellent scholar.
NOTE: Amarilis played her in Generation
X made for T.V. movie.
