Nixon can shift herself into a state in which time moves so slowly relative to her perception that it appears to stop, although she continues to operate normally. When she moves to this faster timestream, seconds to everyone else are minutes to her. While in this state she does not need food or rest.
Relative to the rest of the world, however, she moves at impossible speeds. Because of that, when in this state she unwillingly applies an extreme amount of force to whatever she touches. A simple touch, therefore, has the same impact as a punch from a much stronger person. Ironically and unfortunately she can only leave the faster timestream if she touches the skin of another person. Usually the shift is voluntary, but Nixon may unconsciously shift in stressful circumstances.
Having witnessed the murder of her policeman father at a young age, Kiden Nixon grew into a rebellious teenager, attending rave parties, taking drugs, and stealing to support her smoking habit. Nixon's mutant nature first manifested itself at school after she opposed student gang leader Hector, resulting in his arm being broken. Seeking revenge, Hector attempted to shoot Nixon, but wounded her teacher instead after Nixon used her powers to evade the attack. Her mutant nature now publicly revealed, Nixon fled, and for the next six months she lived on the streets while exploring her powers. After seeing visions of her deceased father whom she believed was trying to communicate with her, Nixon became involved with fellow runaway Catiana and the young Wolverine clone X-23 in opposing pimp Zebra Daddy and his forces. Though morally balanced, Nixon's anti-authoritarian nature coupled with her mutant power makes her a potentially considerable threat.
