AKA: THE WHITE QUEEN
Bad girls in comics are always so useful that they tend to reform and become at least semi-goodies (cf: Catwoman, Elektra). Emma Frost was introduced as an exceptionally nasty - and explicitly perverse - villainess, running a school for evil mutants in competition with Professor Xavier and high in the councils of the nefarious Hellfire Club (in homage to the famous �Touch of Brimstone� episode of The Avengers). Marvel made her a qualified goodie in the X-Men spin-off Generation X, and writer Grant Morrison reinvented the character when he took over New X-Men and wasn�t allowed to use his original choice, Storm. Now an actual X-Man, Emma remained the manipulative slut fans loved to hate � and caused a minor kerfuffle when she began a �telepathic� affair with Cyclops, long-term partner of Jean Grey. Despite strong competition, Emma has consistently worn the most striking lingerie (and little else) in comics � the covers for her brief solo series Emma Frost are basically porn star poses.
