Powers/Abilities: Benazir Kaur can rapidly accelerate disease processes in the body, though only so long as she concentrates on them. When knocked unconscious, all signs of the disease vanish (perhaps indicating that the changes were merely illusion?).
(X-Men II Annual#3) - Benazir played a game of chess with Shinobi Shaw. moving him into a seemingly precarious position, but Shinobi revealed he was merely sacrificing one piece to achieve a greater long-term goal, and he swiftly checkmated her. She questioned him on his other plot (his intended manipulation of the X-Man Storm), and he told her it was coming along quite well.
Shinobi later introduced Storm -- drugged into an affiliation with Shaw -- to Benedict Kine, Benazir Kaur, and Reeva Payge. When Gambit and Bishop arrived to aid Storm, Benazir stimulated the development of cancer in Gambit's lungs from smoking; but Bishop slapped her unconscious, and Gambit swiftly reverted to normal. Storm threw off Shaw's control completely, defeated Shaw, and departed.
