Like her father and sister, Martinique Jason is a mutant psion with the ability to create sensorial illusions that affect all five senses of those the illusion is cast on, and have demonstrated some influence on extrasensory abilities as well. Like her half-sister Lady Mastermind and unlike their father, Martinique also possesses limited telepathy; which she uses to read minds on a basic level, and fine-tune the accuracy of her illusions from victim to victim. Her powers do not affect any surveillance devices because they do not affect machines, only the mind.
She teamed up with Arcade to frame Wolverine for several murders in London. One of the victims had been a friend of Gambit's. Gambit went to London, where he was pitted against Wolverine by Martinique. Martinique eventually turned the tables on Arcade by giving him a recurring nightmare.
Martinique later joined an incarnation of the Brotherhood of Mutants led by Mystique. This Brotherhood was involved in another assassination attempt on the Senator Robert Kelly, who at the time was running for the United States presidency. The Brotherhood were defeated by the X-Men and a dying Pyro, who sacrificed his life to save Kelly. During the encounter, she was placed in a coma by Cable.
She was later removed from a hospital by Multiple Man, for use in Banshee's paramilitary mutant police group, X-Corps. Martinique's powers were employed to keep the supervillain members of the group, Blob, Avalanche and Fever Pitch under Banshee's control. She was eventually awoken by Mystique, who had infiltrated the group under the disguise of the mutant Surge. The two women then "freed" the villain members of the X-Corps and used them to lay waste to Paris. They were defeated by the X-Men.
After M-Day she retained her powers and used them to transform San Fransisco back to the sixties. There she became known as "the Goddess" and was eventually stopped by the X-Men.
Created by Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale.
