Affiliations: Ally of the Coach and Smoke

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: California

First Appearance: X-Force #119 (August, 2001)

Powers: Succubus had a freakish, animalistic appearance, complete with claws and a spiked tongue. No word on whether she had the power to "cloud men's minds" or anything else succubus-like.

History: (X-Force#119)- Succubus was presumably secretly recruited by Coach, not for X-Force, but for his own rather unknown purposes. Succubus first appeared when the Coach sent her and Smoke to reprimand the Orphan for not doing as he said. A battle erupted between X-Force and Smoke and Succubus until the Coach called it off.

(X-Force #120)- The Coach later sent Smoke and Succubus after the Orphan again and this time, Wolverine arrived to save him by killing both of the mutants.

Comments: Created by Peter Milligan and Michael Allred.

A succubus, according to Webster's is "a demon assuming female form to have sexual intercourse with men in their sleep." In the MU, and in most fantasy-type stories it carries the connotation of a woman who steals mens' souls. This is in contrast to an incubus, which carries the denotation of being a male demon that takes human form to have "relations" with women in their sleep (it also refers to one that only lays on top of women in their sleep, or that oppresses or burdens like a nightmare), and the connotation of a man who steals womens' souls.
