Claim to Fame

Young and breathtakingly beautiful, Emma Frost made a number of waves when she made her way onto the scene as the new cutthroat CEO of Frost International. Less well known is her seat as the White Queen of the Hellfire Club's clandestine Inner Circle.

Reputation

In business circles, she's known as a savage cut-throat.

In some "hero" circles, she's known as an outright villain.

Some things, she did. Some things, she didn't. Some things, no one can prove and no one will ever know.

Sometimes she did the wrong thing for the right reasons, but sometimes she just made a few Bad Choices.

Either way, Emma Frost has a reputation among those "hero" circles for her questionable moral compass.

She may or may not actually regret some of her darker decisions (some of which she blames wholly on being out of her mind on drugs and alcohol), but she's definitely not one to easily hand over an apology. Talk is cheap, anyway.

Biography

Born into the wealthy Frost family of Boston, Emma’s parents—the domineering Winston and drug-addled Hazel—were old money and industrialist socialites. She shared her childhood home with an older brother, Christian; an older sister, Adrienne; and a younger sister, Cordelia.

Her life at home was a battleground as the Frost children warred for their parents’ limited affection. Christian and Emma genuinely cared for each other, but Christian committed suicide and left her alone in the family. While Emma was still in high school, she ended up attempting to blackmail her father to— Well, it’s a long story, really, and it ended with him offering her the family fortune and her slamming the door in his face.

While on the streets of Boston, she got herself a boyfriend. They gambled together, and he cooked up a fake ransom scenario to try to extort money from the Frosts to get himself out of trouble when the gambling plan went south. The ransom plan backfired, and her boyfriend died trying to save her from the mob. She ended up saving herself with her fairly newfound abilities.

She kept the money, and enrolled in Empire State University in New York.

Her telepathic roommate? Ended up being a manipulative psychopath, so Emma left her in a coma.

Determined to master her powers, Emma only became more proficient.  She used her powers to liberate gowns from Fifth Avenue, forge invitations to exclusive black tie events, convince everyone she was there legitimately, and lift business secrets. It served to her advantage that her parents had been well known in these circles, and she moved with ease and was praised as a business genius.

One forgery that never needed to be made was her membership to the Hellfire Club of New York that she had inherited from her parents.

The stunning young woman that Emma had become was a welcomed addition to the circles there.  She went and got herself a job as a stripper. However, her first night, several young men accosted Emma, then barely 19 years of age. She was rescued by two mutants, but didn't know either of them. She didn't let the event deter her. Rather, she continued clawing her way up the proverbial ranks there.

Meanwhile, Emma's mind for cutthroat business, coupled with the stolen information she possessed, allowed her to quickly acquire a massive amount of capital, which again caught the Hellfire Club's attention. Their Black Queen used her own telepathic powers and discovered Emma's psionic gifts. Emma, by then 24, was formally invited to be their Lord Cardinal in charge of recruiting new members and, more importantly, new mutants to do the Circle's bidding. She acquired the Massachusetts Academy and began her work.

She grew the school's reputation as a finishing school for the American elite, but hidden there was also the training ground for the Hellions… Emma's precious and beloved team of young and impressionable mutant minds. If you're brave, you can ask Kitty Pryde about Frost's recruitment techniques.

But things rarely seem to go right for Emma Frost.

There were many misadventures and plots gone wrong.

One of them saw her knocked into a coma. Emma spent a long time sleeping, laid in a sort of shrine by Sebastian Shaw and protected by him. When she awoke, Emma returned to her students.

Shortly thereafter, however, the Hellions fought their last battle in the Hellfire Club against an army of robots from the future. Emma was hit by an energy beam and knocked into a coma. Again.

Without their protector and leader, the Hellions, to the last one, were slaughtered. The Hellions were no more.

Her mind wandered, possessing the bodies of a few people here and there. But it was in another’s body where she learned of her students' fate. Charles Xavier found her, confused and distraught, foolishly demanding that her own bewildered guards shoot her. He convinced Emma to finally return to her own body… but now, what to do?

What to do, indeed.

Character Details

Accused with some regularity of being arrogant, cold, and calculating, Frost often appears as icy as her name.

Sure, she can be seductive and charismatic when she wants to be, but she does not like to often express how she truly feels.  Being a telepath has awakened her from an early age to the great power of emotions, and how they play in the lives of mortals. Emma has no intention of ever handing that power over to another.  Instead, she deflects and camouflages them with her caustic wit and withering glances.

As ruthless and manipulative in her private affairs as she is in the board room, she trusts no one fully but herself. Far more often than not, her interests trump all others and certainly she has no fear of the “morally grey”. Hell, she’ll consider just about anything so long as it benefits her.

However, while she’d like the world to believe that she doesn’t care about anyone or anything else… that’s not really true. There is a bit of the mother hen that wishes to protect younger powered beings from a world that reviles them, like she wishes that someone had done for her when she was vulnerable. And deep down (very, very deep down in the unseen and treacherous chasms of her soul), there is a part of her that wants to be seen as something good. Something worthy of redemption.

She won’t be holding her breath on that one, though.

Betsy Braddock Fellow Telepath It sometimes takes one outsider, wealthy telepath to understand another. To date, these two seem to mostly get on with a love of fashion and high living.

Kitty Pryde The "Never Forget" Historian Ask Kitty Pryde about Emma Frost if you want to see some impressive fireworks.

Loki Odinson Untrusted Ally Loki, God of Mischief. It's hard to trust someone with a name like that. But, this is Emma Frost, White Queen of the Hellfire Club and a woman with a reputation for peddling trust like a bargain grocery buy. (It might be good; it might be spoiled.) Untrustworthy isn't a deal-breaker.
Phil_Coulson.jpg
Phil Coulson Undecided. A man so brazen that he'd walk into her office in the middle of a workday to pull her out of it under threat of public exposure… just so he could use her telepathy on a project. Since then, they've worked on the relationship and he has come to appreciate her ability to get into all of those exclusive dining opportunities. Emma's not above bribery.

Scott Summers Xavier's Golden Boy The one to whom Charles Xavier has entrusted the task of bringing Emma Frost into the fold. His brand of optimism is refreshing, and he can seemingly convince her to agree to the occasional act of heroism. …or it's closest approximation, anyway.
ShawIcon_zpsor4d2otp.jpg
Sebastian Shaw Black King This is the man who has, in so many ways, shaped Emma to be the woman she is today. For all of their ups and downs and disagreements, Sebastian Shaw remains her longest ally and associate… and the only man she fears.

Tony Stark Fellow Billionaire One-percenter? Check. Refined taste? Check. Good looking? Check. Capable? …ehhhh, mostly. Shameless flirt? Check. Really, these two have far too much in common to not get on most of the time.
