Monet St. Croix, the second born and most favored child of the wealthy ambassador, Cartier St. Croix, she was raised along with her siblings in a lavish lifestyle in Monaco, where they each grew accustomed to the finer things that money could buy. Like Monet, her three siblings all developed mutant abilities. However, the mutant power of her only bother, Marius, manifested into something like that of a vampire, causing him to feed on the bone marrow of other mutants. With his own mother as his first victim, Marius St. Croix turned to dark magic and took on the name Emplate. After an inter-dimensional expedition birthed a desire to rule, knowing Monet had impressive mutant powers of her own, the deformed and monstrous Marius offered to share his new power with Monet so that they could rule all realities together. Self-involved as any teenager could be, Monet laughed at her brother’s hideous new form and his ludicrous offer. Outraged and filled with jealousy of Monet, he trapped her in the red skinned, mute body named Penance. Her younger twin sisters, Nicole and Claudette, walked into the room to check on the strange noises coming from Monet's room only to find Emplate and Penance.
Being no more than eight and fearing that their brother killed their sister, the only one who did not treat them like "freaks", the twin sisters used their own mutant powers to banish Marius by teleporting him into another dimension. Knowing that only Emplate could free her, Monet quickly followed him. The twins wanted to spare the father the loss of his favorite child so they merged with each other and began to impersonate Monet. The twins, or the M Twins as they were later dubbed, were at some point mentored by the Aboriginal mutant Gateway before they were taken by the alien Phalanx, along with a number of other mutants. Still posing as their sister, the two young girls continued to perfectly imitate Monet when they joined their fellow captives as founding members of the mutant youth group Generation X.
Created by Scott Lobdell & Chris Bachalo.
Monet has one of the most difficult creations since her earlier appearances turned out to be actually her Twin Sisters whom morphed themselves to look like her. This version of Monet was created by Scott Lobdell and Joe Madureira and first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #316. The real Monet was trapped in the body of Penance (or Hollow), whom was created by Scott Lobdell and Chris Bachalo and first appeared in Generation X Issue 1. Monet is finally freed from the Penance form in Generation X Issue 40, making that the first time the real Monet is actually seen as Monet outside her Penance appearance.
