Greetings Commanders,


Madelyne Pryor

Ever since Sabretooth took his adamantium talents to the Weapon X team, Mister Sinister experienced a Mutant gene gap amongst his Marauders. We'll soon be filling that gap with Sinister's favorite solution to problems: a clone. Marauder fans rejoice and welcome the newest member to the team. Everyone else, prepare for a rejuvenated battlefield threat…


Obsessed with harnessing the power of a potential offspring between Cyclops and Phoenix, the master geneticist Mister Sinister pursued this goal by secretly obtaining a genetic sample of Phoenix and producing a clone. Sinister gave the clone the name Madelyne Pryor (Pryor as a pun due to the clone's prior existence), filled her head with false memories, and manipulated Cyclops into marrying her. Madelyne and Cyclops eventually had a son – Nathan Summers (a.k.a. Cable) – but when Phoenix was resurrected from the dead, Cyclops left Madelyne and the baby to be with his once lost love. Jealous and enraged from her abandonment, Madelyne aligned herself with extra dimensional demons in exchange for their help in exercising vengeance against Cyclops. As a clone of Phoenix and now calling herself, "The Goblin Queen", Madelyne Pryor is a powerful psychic Mutant and possesses the abilities of telekinesis, reality warping, telepathy, and psionic energy projection, among other powers. After becoming the Goblin Queen, Madelyne's powers expanded to include dark magic casting and summoning demons and other entities from the Limbo dimension.


Madelyne Pryor joins the Marauders as a Controller and slots into the position vacated by Sabretooth. She features solid Focus and base Damage, which amplify her powerful abilities. Madelyne's presence allows the Marauders to replace the damage lost with Sabretooth's exit from the team, as well as overcome some of their current counters. One such counter to Madelyne’s adversaries is her anti-mind control mechanic, which allows her to mind control her own allies for an attack. Madelyne Pryor's abilities work best with her Marauders team, but she can also be a powerhouse on her own, especially if she squares off against Controllers and Support characters.
