Emma Frost was a leading member of an old Boston mercantile family which arrived from England in the 1600s. The second of three daughters, Emma also had an older brother named Christian who had turned to substance abuse as an escape from the drudgery of his life. Unknown to their family or themselves, the three Frost sisters were mutants whose telepathic abilities matured upon reaching puberty. When it came time for their father to choose a worthy heir to the family fortune, Christian was automatically dismissed due to his drug problem and because of being gay. While the older sister Adrienne seemed the most obvious choice, their father chose Emma. Surprisingly, she refused, choosing to make her own way through life. She inherited a good deal of wealth, but most of her large fortune was the result of her business successes. She rose rapidly through the world of business thanks to her intelligence, drive, personal charm, and her secret use of her psionic abilities. Also, at some point, Beast met Emma, and helped her rise to wealth and power. As a stripper at the Hellfire Club, Frost was approached by Professor X and Moira MacTaggart to join a new team of The X-Men. Emma is a dangerous character as she is part of the Hellfire Club's inner circle as their White Queen as well as a prominent member of the X-Men. Due to those facts, she's hard to be trusted because it's never exactly clear where her allegiances lay.
