This Incarnation: Classic
First Appearance: Giant-Size X-Men #1
Illyana Rasputin was born on the Soviet collective farm called the Ust-Ordynski Collective near Lake Baikal in Siberia. She was the youngest of three mutant siblings. Her brothers were the X-Man Colossus and the cosmonaut Mikhail. Somehow, Arcade and Miss Locke captured Illyana along with several other of the X-Men's loved ones. After they were freed, Colossus allowed his sister to stay in the United States. Piotr felt that his sister would be safe and should not be used as a government tool like their older brother Mikhail. As a child, Illyana's stepping discs transported her into Belasco's Limbo. Belasco had turned part of her soul into a Bloodstone, giving her great potential for power and allowing him to control her. For a while she was Belasco's apprentice, and she was also instructed in magic by an alternate version of Storm. Belasco attempted to use Illyana as a pawn, but she was able to defeat him. In Limbo, Illyana magically caused her own life force energy to manifest the Soulsword. A simple looking blade upon its origin, it began to develop intricate designs and forms upon itself the more Illyana used it, becoming more powerful with each use. Back on Earth, Illyana became good friends with the X-Man Shadowcat and joined the New Mutants. She later died from the Legacy Virus which sent her brother into a spiraling depression and search for a cure.
