The Quiet Man (Marvel)(01-Prudence Leighton)
Real Name: Prudence Leighton
Search for 'The Quiet Man (Marvel)(01-Prudence Leighton)' on Amazon

Prudence possesses the ability to project her consciousness into the bodies of others; Steinbeck was a pyrokinetic capable of spewing flames from his throat.

Prudence Leighton was part of a network of secret agents and spies gathered by Charles Xavier in order to perform missions deemed unfit for the X-Men due to their sensitive nature. Her last assigment involved the purchase of Soviet Union Sentinels by military commanders of Cuba.

Prudence was murdered by Steinbeck, a pyrokinetic mutant arms dealer, before the eyes of Shortpack, her handler, who secretly loved her. However she did not pass on completely and took over Steinbeck’s body – she accessed his powers and resources and contacted her brother.

Prudence was falling into mental decay because her power didn't really work on men and she and her brother Shepard set out to assassinate Charles Xavier with one of the greatest assassins on the planet, the newly blackmailed agent Mystique. Calling herself the Quiet Man, Prudence played the role of a mysterious benefactor who offered to remove Mystique's tracking implant in exchange for her services.

Unfortunately their machinations came apart when Mystique double crossed them. Prudence removed the Quiet Man’s cloak and revealed she was still wearing the outfit she’d been murdered in (for some odd reason) while in Steinbeck's body. She and Mystique fought but Mystique proved far more capable and dodged Stenbecks breath and Prudence’s punches to stab Quiet Man in the stomach.

Prudence's and Steinbeck's minds apparently went into overdrive and their powers reached critical mass. They began to swell and exploded, throwing Shortpack and Mystique far from the site.
