Emma Grace Frost grew up in the rich neighborhood of Snow Valley, Massachusetts as the daughter of a wealthy, albeit abusive father. She developed her powers while under pressure from her father to succeed. Emma blackmailed her father after he got a professor who she was romantically linked with fired. Despite her father being upset, he decided she was smart and offered her to take over the family business, but Emma declined preffering to make her fortune herself. Emma left her family and joined the radical mutant group, the Hellfire Club. After spending a stint as the “White Queen,” she later defected to the X-Men to lead the team.
+++ HELLFIRE CLUB +++
Emma first encounters the X-men while she is the “White Queen” of the dangerous Hellfire Club. She tries to forcibly recruit Kitty Pryde to the club, but was opposed by the X-Men. Though Emma is initially triumphant, the X-Men eventually defeats her. She and her mutant students, the Hellions would encounter the X-Men many times after this. Her time with the Hellfire Club ends when she is attacked by a mad time traveler named Trevor Fitzroy. In the ensuing incident which also involved the X-Men, most of the Hellions are killed, and Emma in sent into a coma. She is eventually revived, although her mind is transferred to Bobby Drake's body. Initially Emma thought Xavier is holding her hostage, so she flees to Frost International - still in Iceman's body. Accessing one of her computers, Emma discovers her Hellions were dead and blames herself for it.
When Xavier and some other X-Men finally catch up with her, Frost confesses to Charles that the only reason she fights him over young mutants was that she believes that she could offer them something Xavier can’t, and that their deaths proves that she was wrong. Emma then agrees to go back to the X-Mansion and have her mind transferred back to her body.
Because the line between Emma and the White Queen is so hard to see, for database purposes the line is drawn in such a way that she is only considered to be "The White Queen" during the period of time where she was a ruthless villain. Chronologically, this ends sometime after the Hellions were killed.
