As we learn through Jean Grey's telepathy at the start of the Battle of the Atom ,Blake Schiel was exposed to the frightening memory of her parents fighting at a young age, which lead to her following a bad path in her life. She was later involved in a bank robbery and was brought to jail where she her mutant power first manifested. She then broke out of jail and came back to have her revenge. She now uses the name Animax and gets her revenge by terrorizing New York but the she is stopped by the original X-Men and Kitty at the end.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Animax is noted by Kitty Pryde to be a powerful Mutant. She has the power to summon creatures at will. It is still unknown however, whether or not she is pulling these creatures from another dimension or creating them by herself.
