The Snow Queen is to generate a type of mental static--or snow--"like a blitzed picture tube" that blanks out the senses and concentration of others. She also appears to possess enhanced human strength, durability, and other abilities. She is a talented assassin, has experience with explosives, and she is especially skilled with both knives and guns.
The Snow Queen is an assassin of some renown: The Canadian government knew about her back when Wolverine worked for them.
The Snow Queen was hired by unknown parties in the Madripoor lowtown to assassinate a bartender, possibly O'Donnell. She packed some explosives, along with her advance payment, in a suitcase to commit the hit, and headed out on the streets of Madripoor. She was only on the streets for a short time when a street urchin, Aldo, believing the suitcase to contain something of value, grabbed it and escaped. As the Snow Queen chased after Aldo, one of his friends, Rose, found Wolverine (who was going by the alias Patch at the time) and convinced him to help. Logan confronted her and received a head full of static that vanished only when she was long gone--and prevented his senses from tracking her. While Wolverine sought out Aldo through other means, the Snow Queen found Rose and forced her to take her to Aldo.
As the Snow Queen cornered Aldo, Wolverine caught up to them and attacked the her. She again disrupted his senses, nearly incapacitating him as she went to work on him with her knife and then her gun. When Aldo fled, the Snow Queen shot at him and instead winged Rose, knocking her off a building. While Aldo and Wolverine saved Rose, the Snow Queen made off with her suitcase. Far off in the distance, the Snow Queen happily opened her suitcase, only to find that Aldo had unwittingly activated its timer. With the timer already down to 001 seconds...the Snow Queen had an early thaw.
