Emma can transform her body into an organic diamond form.
First appearing in Ultimate X-Men #42, the Emma Frost of the Ultimate Universe is a former student of Professor Charles Xavier. The two became romantically involved, but they eventually split over ideological differences: Whereas Xavier believes in aggressive action and in protecting his students from society, Frost believes in an integrated approach to mutant/human relations. Frost believes Xavier to be too violent.
Frost returned to Chicago and became a teacher, giving mutant education seminars. The governor supported her cause and introduced her to the White House chief of staff. Through him, she meets the American president and organizes the New Mutants program, designed to educate humans about mutants and to cut the government's ties to Charles Xavier, whose reputation has been tarnished. During the group's first media appearance, they and the president are attacked by Sentinels and must be rescued by the X-Men. Xavier tries to convince Frost to stay with the X-Men, but she returns to her own school in Chicago. Her new program, the Academy of Tomorrow, accepts all talented students, regardless of genetic status.
In the Ultimate X-Men comics, Frost can transform her skin into an organic diamond form, like her secondary mutation in the Marvel Universe; however, she does not display telepathic abilities, although, in her initial display to the President, she appears as though she is going on to mention other powers before she is cut off, so it remains to be seen whether there will be any similarities between the Ultimate and 616 Versions.
She dresses much more conservatively than her 616 counterpart; generally wearing buttoned up shirts and knee-length skirts, as opposed to the main continuities' very revealing costumes. Even when appearing in a costume reminiscent of the original's outfit for a press conference, she still manages to show far less skin. However, despite her less provocative dress style, she is still considered extremely attractive by many of the male characters. For instance during the "Magnetic North" arc, she jokingly tells Cypher that she could kiss him after he manages to track down his rogue teammates. A clearly excited Cypher simply responds by saying, "Okay."
It is revealed in Ultimate X-Men #88 that she is part of the Hellfire Club, who is trying to separate the Phoenix from Jean Grey. She now also wears the provocative clothing of her 616-counterpart when in the Club, and it is revealed that she is romantically involved with Hellfire Club leader Shinobi Shaw.
The Ultimate version of this character is not an alternate identity of the regular Marvel character as the Ultimate universe is a distinct reality.
