First Appearance: X-Men Unlimited I#42/4 (April, 2003)
Powers/Abilities: Marc Dale was a kindly mutant with the power to heal by way of intimate touch, with the level of injury/illness determining the amount of intimacy required. He was also an able and trained doctor.
(X-Men Unlimited I#42/4 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Dale used waivers to prevent harassment suits against him by patients healed by his intimate touch. He would sometimes contact Charles Xavier, but only if a situation warranted it. He came across Tasha, a telepathic mutant, who had been put into a psychiatric ward as she seemed to be catatonic and very withdrawn, and asked Xavier for his help.
(X-Men Unlimited I#42/4) - Dr. Dale met up with Charles Xavier and told him of Tasha's case, but was interrupted by a woman seeking his aid; however, she rejected him when she found out how he healed his patients. Dr. Dale then led Xavier to Tasha's room and left him there to help her.
(X-Men Unlimited I#42/4 (fb) - BTS) - The woman initially seeking Dr. Dale's help returned and kissed him to be cured of her injured arm.
(X-Men Unlimited I#42/4) - After successfully helping Tasha, Xavier found the two kissing. The woman then hurried away and Dr. Dale and Xavier then spoke further about the personal rewards of healing others.

I wonder if the good doctor's fee (presuming he charged for his services) for sexual healing altered depending on the patient's gender, age seniority, etc.
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Marc Dale has no known connections to:
Tasha was a mutant with the passive telepathic ability to only receive thoughts. When her mutant ability surfaced, she was overwhelmed by the streaming telepathic noise and withdrew from everything. Perceived as catatonic or autistic by doctors, she was placed in the psychiatric ward of a hospital. Dr. Dale took an interest in her case and had Xavier look at her. She was led into Xavier's mind by him to see how to control her abilities and was encouraged to identify a sanctuary for herself; she selected crystals. Xavier helped her focus on other's thoughts as song notes. She wove them into songs and was liberated.
