First Appearance: Uncanny X-Men I#141 (January, 1981)
Powers/Abilities: A precognitive mutant , Destiny had the ability to psionically scan the events of alternate futures and, through concentration, focus on the realities that were most likely to come true. She could use this to "see" her own future or that of those near her, actively predicting what her enemies would do next in battle, which made her an invaluable strategist. Over time, her mutant powers seemed to evolve: when her abilities first manifested themselves, Irene was able to accurately foretell events decades in the future and even beyond her death. As she grew older, her predictions about the immediate future became more potent. Destiny could correctly predict events in the next ten seconds about 97 percent of the time.
Destiny was able to project her astral form, although she only manifested this ability after her death at the hands of Legion.
Legally blind since her late teens, Destiny used a blind man's cane in her civilian identity, but was able to move around unassisted thanks to her precognitive abilities. Trained in the use of a crossbow, she could fire with unerring accuracy.
Destiny also aged at a remarkably slow rate, appearing only in her early sixties when she was actually well over a hundred years old.
Weight: 110 lbs.
Hair: Silver (light brown in youth)
(X-Treme X-Men I#1 (fb)) - Irene's Adler was born into a wealthy Austrian family near the end of the 19th century. Growing up in Salzburg, Irene's mutant powers of precognition manifested themselves when she was 13. With no one around to train the young girl in the use of her newfound abilities, she threatened to be overcome by the onslaught of disturbing, unfamiliar and frightening visuals and sounds that came to her. Managing to retain her sanity, Adler started writing down her visions in diaries.
(X-Treme X-Men Annual I#1 (fb)) - As Irene began her chronicling, she was noticed by the Shadow King who subtly started influencing the young girl. While she was still untrained in the use of her powers, the Shadow King purposefully distorted and clouded Irene's visions, causing her to perceive the future in as cryptic and nebulous a fashion as possible.
(X-Treme X-Men I#1 (fb)) - Working tirelessly for 13 months straight, she crafted a comprehensive record of what was to come, including the future of the world, humanity and mutantkind in a stream of consciousness parade of unknown languages, codes, pictograms and places she'd never visited or people that hadn't even been born yet. Essentially self taught in the use of her gifts, she tried to determine which of her visions were of the true timeline and which showed her the most desirable realities. Trying to bring together those two took its toll: shortly after finishing the 13th volume of what would become known as the books of truth, Irene Adler had become physically blind.
(Chaos War: Dead X-Men I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Foreseeing the coming of the Chaos King and the rise of the dead, Irene included an extensive, though appropriately enigmatic set of instructions in her diaries on how his schemes could be disrupted. Sketching a schematic of Moira MacTaggert's research facility on Muir Island, Adler gave a cryptic description on properly turning the keys surrounding the intersecting laylines on the island.
(X-Treme X-Men I#1 (fb)) - Undeterred by the loss of her sight, Irene continued in her attempts to make sense of what she'd seen. To help her accomplish this, she hired the services of a consulting detective named Raven Darkhölme. Together, they tried to use Adler's visions to shape the future while falling in love. However, while they could use Irene's abilities to achieve (financial) success on a personal level, the fact they were unable to exact any major social changes frustrated the couple.
(X-Men Legacy I#233 (fb) - BTS) - Irene became pregnant with a child that would eventually become the grandmother or grandfather of Ruth Aldine, the future X-Man known as Blindfold who inherited Adler's mutant precognitive abilities.
(X-Men: True Friends I#3) - On a visit to Scotland in 1936, Irene, working as a seer along with Logan (later Wolverine) and Mr. Raven (Mystique in disguise), encountered the timelost Kitty Pryde from the modern era. The future X-Man planned to take advantage of being stuck in the past to travel to Germany and take out Hitler and the other higher ups in the Nazi party before they could start World War II and the destruction of six million Jews. Foreseeing Kitty's dilemma, Destiny stressed they shouldn't interfere with Pryde's decision, but did point out that the danger of killing Hitler was the creation of a vacuum that would be impossible to predict how it would be filled.
(X-Men Forever I#4 (fb) - BTS) - At an unrevealed point, Irene and Raven parted ways. Traveling to America, Adler became involved with the government mutant research project known as the Black Womb Project. For a while, she functioned as the project's archivist in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
(New X-Men II#41/2 (fb)) - Irene posed for a photograph
with the rest of Project Black Womb's staff.
This would later be seen by the Beast/Hank McCoy during his research into a possible cure for M-Day.
(X-Men Forever I#4) - Irene gave Kurt Marko and Alexander Ryking a tour of Project Black Womb's eugenics information center which included dozens of mutant babies being kept in suspended animation. Adler explained to the surprised Marko that these were merely the rejects, infants whose genetic templates were deemed inherently flawed. However, instead of correcting these mistakes through relatively simple means, the project's director Amanda Mueller planned to leave them unattended, interested in seeing how these oddities would develop.
(Sabretooth & Mystique I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Leaving the Black Womb Project, Adler reconnected with Mystique. Going on a mission to Israel, Adler waited for Mystique (in her identity as Mossad agent Amichai Benvenisti), in an abandoned mosque near Jerusalem. However, Irene was ambushed and brutally beaten by HYDRA operative Catalyst, who left her tied up at the site while planting booby traps around her.
(Sabretooth & Mystique I#1 (fb)) - Creed and Mystique reached the mosque, only to find the tied up and gagged Irene hanging from the ceiling. Shocked to see her lover like that, Mystique ignored Creed's warnings about possible booby traps. When Mystique touched Adler's body, the traps were triggered, and both Creed and Mystique were rendered unconscious, allowing them to be easily captured by Catalyst and his forces.
(Sabretooth & Mystique I#2 (fb)) - While Catalyst was torturing Creed, Destiny and Mystique shared a brief but happy reunion in the holding cell. After filling Raven in on Catalyst and HYDRA, Irene assured her that Mystique's shapeshifting powers were their ace in the hole. Just then, Catalyst returned the battered and broken Creed back to the cell and planned to take Adler for another "interrogation" session. Incensed at the notion, Raven tried to jump the HYDRA operative, who used his mutant control over chemical reactions to stop her. While Catalyst arrogantly stood over the pain wrecked Mystique, Adler tried to get him to focus on her but refused to be intimidated by him. Catalyst slapped Irene around before dragging her to his interrogation room, while the precog assured him that hers would be the last face he'd see before his death. Using the time Destiny had bought them, Mystique and Sabretooth escaped their cell.
(Sabretooth & Mystique I#3 (fb)) - Chained up against the wall of his interrogation chamber and surrounded by corpses, Adler was about to be tortured by Catalyst when Mystique (once more in her identity as Mossad agent Amichai Benvenisti) burst in to rescue her. Adler managed to surprise the slightly startled Catalyst by quickly kicking him into the vat of molten lava he planned to torture her with. As he seemingly died, Destiny's prediction came true: hers was the last face he saw.
(Sabretooth & Mystique I#1 (fb) - BTS)
- After returning from their mission against Catalyst, Adler shared a
vision she had with Mystique. She'd learned that the coordinates to
Catalyst's long-lost fortress would be found in James Hedrickson's
belly. Adler made her lover promise that after her death, Mystique
would seek out Hedrickson's body, find the fortress and destroy the
notes of Catalyst's potentially world threatening Access computer
(X-Factor I#135 (fb) - BTS) - Once more venturing out solo, Irene had an affair with an unidentified man that left her pregnant with a daughter she named Justine. While raising the child, she reconnected with Mystique who over the years, in her disguise as Raven Darkhölme, became a close friend of the family. Irene made sure Justine knew she could always count on Raven, eventually believing the secretive shapeshifter was the best friend she could have. As an adult, Justine married Cole Chase and had a son: Trevor.
(X-Force -1 - BTS) - Fearing that others might try and use her powers for their own purposes, Destiny and Mystique went undercover. They joined the traveling Tiboldt Carnival of Wonder, touring the American Mid-West, with Irene earning her keep by offering her services as a fortune teller called Madame Destiny.
(X-Force -1) - Destiny read the fortune of young James Proudstar (the future X-Force member Warpath). She inadvertently saw the death of his older brother Thunderbird (during the X-Men's first mission against Count Nefaria). Distraught by what she'd learned, she didn't share her vision with the young boy, instead lying to him about not actually being psychic at all. When she later told Mystique about the encounter and how she'd had to lie about her powers, Darkhölme declared they were meant for bigger and better things and that it was time they left the carnival behind.
(Classic X-Men I#44/2) - When a conflict between Mystique and Rogue over kissing boys threatened to cause a rift between them, Irene advised Mystique to treat their teenage foster daughter with care. Adler sensed that Rogue didn't quite share the duo's grim resolve and would most likely shy away from the dark methods they'd embraced to get their way. Grumbling, Mystique bowed to Irene's advice and allowed Rogue to discover her own path.
(X-Men Forever I#2 - BTS) - Destiny had long since been aware of the fact that events after her death would cause Mystique to start traveling back into the past, jumping into her past selves at random intervals. Foreseeing this, Adler prepared a floppy disc with data she knew would be essential in Mystique's mission.
(X-Men Forever I#2) - Returning home to Destiny and their foster daughter Rogue, the timelost Mystique asked to see Destiny in private, much to Rogue's chagrin. Mystique was about to tell Irene all she knew, but to her surprise learned that her precognitive lover was already up to speed. She handed Raven the disc with the data on her work at Project Black Womb.
(X-Men II#94 (fb) - BTS) - Foreseeing the need, Destiny placed one of her diaries with clues pertaining the identity of the XII and the plans of Apocalypse for the world inside one of the paintings in the Manhattan apartment she and Mystique owned. Already sensing Shadowcat would find the painting, Irene made sure Kitty Pryde would be intrigued by writing on the back of the painting "Cat Shadow X, reach in D".
(X-Treme X-Men I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Sensing her foster daughter Rogue would in the future join the X-Men Bishop, Sage, Storm and Thunderbird (Neal Shaara) in a quest to find her prophetic diaries, Irene decided to help out. She procured a mansion in the Spanish town of Valencia, even living there briefly, decorating the lavish mansion with pictures of Rogue and Mystique to make sure it felt like a home. Locking up the house until it was needed, Adler also left a care package of sorts inside, addressed to Rogue and her fellow X-Men who Irene mentioned by name. Including in the package was another volume of her diaries, legal documents that made Rogue the sole inheritor of the house as well as Destiny's acquired assets. She also left a new costume for Storm.
(X-Men Forever I#3) - Irene comforted Mystique when she jumped into another past body, moments after murdering her son Graydon Creed. Reminding her lover that once blood had been shed, it could never be washed clean from her soul, Adler held Darkhölme until she fell asleep.
(X-Treme X-Men I#17 (fb) - BTS) - At one point, perhaps accidentally, Rogue used her powers on Destiny and inadvertently imprinted her precognitive abilities. Unable to control her powers fully, Rogue stored away the access to this futuresight away.
(Rogue III#10 (fb)) - Sitting in a corner of their living room, Destiny watched as Rogue and Mystique argued over the fact Rogue had added a second white stripe to her hair. Defending her new hair do, Rogue claimed this was tame compared to the tattoos and piercings most other 17 year olds were getting. Mystique admitted she felt it made her daughter look old, and asked Irene to back her up on this. Destiny gently reminded the two of the fact she was both old and blind so she'd be the last to comment on what Rogue looked like now. Moving on to business, Destiny revealed how ill at ease she felt about Mystique and Rogue's upcoming trip to Japan where they'd meet their associate Blindspot who Irene had a distinct dislike of. Mystique kissed her lover goodbye and assured her that they'd stop working with Blindspot as soon as Rogue got her recently discovered memory-absorbing powers under control.
(Rogue III#11 (fb)) - Foreseeing that Mystique and Rogue's mission to Japan with Blindspot would end in disaster, Irene prepared for the inevitable fallout. Blindspot eventually forced her way into Mystique's home and used her mutant memory control powers to force Rogue and Raven to forget all about her. After the deed was done, Irene surprised Blindspot by coming out of the shadows armed with a crossbow. Adler revealed she'd allowed Blindspot to wipe her girls' memories clean so she would never have to deal with her again. Her precognitive vision assured her of the fact they'd never cross paths again.
(X-Factor Annual I#6 (fb)) - While posing for a picture together, Irene sensed her lover's sadness. Asking her to cheer up a little, Adler decided she would make Raven laugh if it's the last thing she ever did.
(X-Factor Annual I#6 (fb) - BTS) - Foreseeing her own death years in the future, Destiny had her will prepared. In it, Mystique was required to spread her ashes at a specific location and at a certain time. Along with the will, she included her ring, the picture noted above, and some lyrics from the Beatles song "Obladi, Oblada (Life Goes On)," which was sung by a lounge singer as the picture was being taken.
(Ms. Marvel I#25 - BTS) - Destiny had a vision that showed her the superheroine Ms. Marvel would one day cost Rogue her soul and possibly her life.
(Ms. Marvel I#25) - While meditating in her villa in Hong Kong, Irene picked up the coming of Carol Danvers, a vision she relayed to her lover Mystique. She also reminded Mystique that it'd be best to leave Danvers alone, for every move made against her would make matters worse. This greatly angered Mystique, who was frustrated over doing nothing to stop Destiny's vision from coming to pass. Despite Destiny's protests, she sent Pyro and Avalanche to kill Danvers once she landed in Hong Kong. Despite the two evil mutants' best efforts, Danvers survived.
Weeks later, Destiny noticed that Carol Danvers had somehow disappeared from all the possible futures she could perceive. Undeterred, Mystique's resolve only increased as she yelled to Irene she wouldn't allow Danvers to harm Rogue, even if it cost her her own life. A shocked Rogue overheard this and moved to San Francisco several weeks later to fight Danvers herself. When Mystique realized what Rogue was up to, she rushed to San Francisco but was too late to prevent her daughter from permanently (or at least for years) absorbing the powers and memories of Carol Danvers.
(Uncanny X-Men I#141) - On October 31, Destiny and the other members of Mystique's new Brotherhood of Mutants were in Washington D.C for their first public mission. Sensing Blob's ambition and unease about being led by a woman, Irene informed her lover of the situation. After some infighting, Mystique established control. The Brotherhood then went to the United States Senate Building to confront Senator Robert Kelly on his turgid anti-mutant sentiments. However, they were met by the X-Men who planned to defend Kelly with their lives.
(Uncanny X-Men I#142 - BTS) - Hoping to prevent her dark future where Sentinels ruled and mutantkind had been all but exterminated, Katherine Pryde had traveled from the relative future of Reality-811 thirty-three years back to Reality-616's modern era and inhabited the body of her younger self. This caused a temporal ripple effect that disrupted Destiny's ability to accurately see and predict the future.
(Uncanny X-Men I#142) - Despite her limited view of future events, Destiny managed to aid teammates Avalanche and Pyro in their attacks on X-Men Colossus and Nightcrawler. She then joined Mystique who had just successfully managed to surprise and take out professor Xavier and Moira MacTaggert, thereby robbing the mutants from telepathic guidance. Destiny explained about the temporal anomaly she'd picked up, but Mystique assured her victory was within reach regardless.
While Mystique rejoined the Brotherhood in
their fight against the X-Men, Destiny snuck away to look for Senator
Kelly. When she located him, Irene drove the senator into a corner
while pointing her crossbow at him. Defiant, Kelly refused to beg for
his life and assured her that his death would only bolster people to
fight back. This didn't deter Destiny, who had already sensed the
X-Men had defeated the Brotherhood and was determined to finish the
job. But just as she pulled the trigger, Sprite jumped out of hiding
and phased through her. The sudden contact with the "temporal anomaly"
caused Irene to fall unconscious and miss the shot. Of the
Brotherhood, only Mystique had managed to stay free. Watching her
lover being dragged away, Mystique swore to free her before long.
(Avengers Annual I#10 - BTS) - Following their capture, Adler, along with the other Brotherhood members, were taken to Ryker's Island. Mystique planned to liberate them with the help of Rogue who had only recently mastered her newfound abilities.
(Avengers Annual I#10) - Destiny foresaw and informed her Brotherhood teammates of the coming jailbreak (via Rogue dropping a kidnapped and disabled Iron Man on the jail's power generator). When the lights went out, Destiny stood ready and guided Avalanche and Pyro to the Blob who was kept in a special cell to counter his powers. Reunited with Rogue and Mystique, the Brotherhood of Mutants had mere moments before they were besieged by the Avengers and the visiting Spider-Woman. Once again, Destiny's predictions served the Brotherhood well, but the mutants were no match for the might of the Avengers. Irene was knocked out by a gas explosion caused by the Scarlet Witch's unpredictable hex power. In the end, Mystique and Rogue beat a strategic retreat.
(Rom I#31 - BTS) - After being defeated and recaptured, Destiny and the other Brotherhood members were placed in suspended animation tubes and scheduled to be transported to Windust prison via the Stark Industries Super-Criminal Conveyor. Mystique and Rogue learned of this and planned to break them free, posing as members of the state psychiatric board.
(Rom I#31) - The Super-Criminal Conveyor
was caught in a snowstorm that blocked the road. A chain gang from a
nearby prison was working to clear the snow, but one of them slipped
and was about to be trampled by the slow moving Conveyor. As luck
would have it, Rom the Spaceknight happened to pass by and stopped the
truck in its tracks. Mistaking the alien's intents, the Conveyor's
operators figured it was an attack and launched the cellblock into the
air. While the chain gang prisoners told the naive Rom they were
actually slaves forced to labor for their masters at Windust, angering
the Spaceknight to no end, the airborne Conveyor landed at the prison.
Moments after the Brotherhood members were loaded off the transport,
Mystique and Rogue made their move and managed to free their teammates
just as Rom arrived at the prison to free all the caged men. Mistaking
Rom for Iron Man, the Brotherhood figured they had to fight the
Avengers again. While Mystique momentarily berated Destiny for not
anticipating this turn of events, she quickly ordered the Brotherhood
to use the flying Conveyor to get to safety. The plan did not go off
without a hitch: Blob, Pyro and Rogue faced Rom in the prison yard and
despite Avalanche's best attempts to reach the Conveyor, the prison
guards were about to overrun them all. This forced Mystique to once
again abandon her teammates by ordering Rogue to fly her and Destiny
away before it was too late. Complying, Rogue took off, but the extreme
weather soon got to Destiny who needed a rest. Setting down near a
seemingly abandoned mansion, Destiny vaguely warned of a coming
horror. When they went inside, they were greeted by Jimmy Marks, the
human/Dire Wraith offspring Irene instantly knew as Hybrid.
(Rom I#32) - Facing Hybrid, Mystique asked Destiny to see what the creature was. Overwhelmed by it's evil nature, all Irene saw of the future was death. However, after a brief altercation Destiny sensed that Hybrid and the Brotherhood shared two common enemies: the X-Men and Rom, who was already looking for them following their escape from Windurst prison. Forging a temporary alliance, the three mutant women were not aware of the fact their new ally planned to use them as breeding stock for his own race of mutant/Dire Wraith hybrids. A few hours later, some of the chain gang prisoners who had escaped after the Brotherhood's initial encounter with Rom chanced upon the mansion where Hybrid and the others were holed up. Instantly sensing her earlier vision about horror and death coming to pass, Destiny and her fellow Brotherhood members watched helplessly as Hybrid killed the foursome. Their alliance was about to fall apart, if not for the timely arrival of Rom forcing them to work together. During the fight, Adler sensed what Hybrid was planning for them and managed to convince Mystique to break the alliance. Joining forces with Rom, the predictions of Destiny proved instrumental in helping the Spaceknight defeat Hybrid. In the aftermath, Rom told the three Brotherhood members they were really on the same side and should fight together instead of against other forces of good such as the X-Men. While Mystique dismissed the notion outright, Destiny concurred with Rom and told her lover they would soon need to confront the issues posed by the Spaceknight. For now, however, they went their separate ways.
(Dazzler I#22) - Planning their revenge on the X-Men by plotting against the team's wayward member Angel, who at the time was romancing mutant songstress Dazzler (Alison Blaire). After attacking him with experimental anti-personnel hawks (flying robots) she stole from the Pentagon, Mystique prepared to send Rogue after him. The junior member of the Brotherhood was more eager for a rematch with Colossus or Wolverine, but Destiny assured her the Angel was not as helpless as she'd like to believe. She then pointed out that her precognitive abilities were what made her a valuable member of the team, insisting that they took the time to formulate a definite strategy.
A little while later, the Angel was flying over the city with Alison Blaire in his arms. Feeling this was the perfect time to strike, Mystique ordered Rogue to move in while she and Destiny followed via helicopter. Deeming the girl an acceptable loss, Rogue uprooted a massive tree and proceeded to swat it at Angel, forcing him to land or risk dropping Dazzler. After Mystique explained to the confused Angel she planned to have Rogue touch him to learn his secrets in order to destroy the X-Men, Rogue suddenly noticed the woman he was carrying was actually the Dazzler, one of her favorite singers. Destiny didn't know anything about her singing career, but she did sense that a great future tragedy was to befall Blaire, involving her loved ones. Not wanting Alison involved in this fight, the Angel attacked the Brotherhood, unaware that Alison planned to get involved. Using the sounds of a nearby waterfall to charge her light powers, she engaged Mystique and Destiny, but was tossed off the waterfall by Rogue. Seeing Alison fall to her apparent death rattled the Angel long enough for the Brotherhood members to take him out. Planning to take Angel with them in their helicopter, Destiny suddenly sensed the danger had not yet passed. Moments later, Dazzler climbed up from the ledge and struck quickly enough to blind and stun the three evil mutants. Waking up Angel, Dazzler managed to get him to pilot the helicopter and get them to safety.
(Dazzler I#23) - Recovering from their defeat at the hands of Dazzler and Angel, the three female Brotherhood members reconvened to discuss their next move. Mystique decided it would be best to hold off on any further attacks on the Angel, preferring to let him stew in his own fears for a bit. Rogue, curious to know more of Destiny's prediction regarding the tragedy she foresaw for the Dazzler, wanted to keep track of the singing mutant. When Mystique ordered her young charge to drop the matter, Destiny sensed that Rogue was troubled by this and would find out more, one way or the other. A little later, Rogue decided to take on Dazzler without Mystique or Destiny's consent.
(Dazzler I#28) - After meeting repeated defeat at the hands of Dazzler, Rogue was venting her frustration on the equipment of the Brotherhood's sub-basement gymnasium all dolled up to resemble Alison Blaire. Watching their foster daughter work herself up in a fevered frenzy, Mystique and Destiny tried to calm her down. However, despite Destiny's predictions and advice, Rogue wasn't able to let her vendetta against Dazzler go and soon went out to face her again, without success.
(Uncanny X-Men I#170 - BTS) - Mastermind (Jason Wyngarde) subtly used his illusion powers and technology obtained from the White Queen (Emma Frost) to influence Destiny's perceptions of the future, making her think something prevented her from seeing what was coming. Meanwhile, Mastermind also used his power to slowly turn a disillusioned and frustrated Rogue, away from Destiny and Mystique.
(Uncanny X-Men I#170) - After experiencing a horrific nightmare in which she was hunted down and slaughtered like a wild animal, Mystique was comforted by Destiny who had already sensed her lover's upcoming distress and was waiting up for her with a fresh pot of coffee. To her frustration, Destiny admitted she could not sense what was causing the nightmares in the first place. Claiming some force was occluding her perceptions of future events, Destiny dismissed Raven's suggestion Charles Xavier might be behind it because even the world's premier telepath wouldn't be able to operate on the fundamental levels of space and time itself. Just then, Destiny got a future vision, showing her that Rogue was in danger. Rushing up to her room, the couple realized their foster daughter had left home. Unable to tell her where she was going, Destiny look on while Mystique swore revenge on whoever was behind this.
(Uncanny X-Men I#177 - BTS) - After learning Rogue had switched allegiances and joined the X-Men, Mystique became convinced her foster daughter was somehow being forced against her will and planned to liberate her.
(Uncanny X-Men I#177) - Destiny comforted Mystique after her workout in Arcade's Murder World ended with her being able to kill all the X-Men LMD's, including Rogue, but failing to slay Nightcrawler. Irene reminded Raven of the fact she already predicted this would happen, lamenting that being able to see the future is useless when no one ever listens to what you have to say. She then tried to persuade her lover to abandon her plan for vengeance on the X-Men, calling it a mistake and reminding her she wasn't even able to kill a robot version of Nightcrawler, let alone the real man. Angered at her words, Mystique declared she'd see all the X-Men dead if it meant getting Rogue back.
A little while later, Destiny joined the other members of the Brotherhood in an attack on Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, Colossus and Amanda Sefton who were enjoying a night on the town. The planned attack left Colossus' organic steel form molten and fused.
(Uncanny X-Men I#178 - BTS) - Ordering the Brotherhood to keep the X-Men distracted and away from the mansion, leaving Destiny in charge, Mystique made her way to Professor Xavier's school for gifted youngster to face Xavier and take back Rogue.
(Uncanny X-Men I#178) - Destiny was guiding the Brotherhood members from the rooftops, using her futuresight to advise them. However, she actively tried to keep Nightcrawler from being harmed, which looked to her teammates as if she wasn't getting the full picture. As the fight carried on, Destiny became more proactive in her advice, but found the speed with which Nightcrawler and the others moved made it hard for her to relay her hints in time for them to be of any use. In the end, it became obvious that the fight was just a distraction when a hologram of Mystique appeared offering the X-Men the life of their mentor Charles Xavier in return for the Brotherhood members being allowed to go free. Begrudgingly the team complied, but as the evil mutants left, Destiny informed the X-Men she had just sensed that Kitty Pryde was facing imminent oblivion near the Baxter Building.
(Uncanny X-Men I#185) - Sensing Rogue was in grave danger, Destiny traveled to the Pentagon where Mystique was working as Raven Darkhölme. However, she was already aware of the fact Henry Peter Gyrich planned to use Forge's neutralizer gun on Rogue to prove the government could handle super-criminals without having to rely on superheroes. The two discussed having Gyrich use the weapon to depower Rogue, so she could become normal and return home to them. However, when Mystique asked Destiny to look into the future and advise on the best course of action, the precog admitted her perceptions had become jumbled, as if the very fabric of time had been torn asunder. All she could advise her love was to follow her heart.
(Marvel Fanfare I#40/2 - BTS) - Still concerned about her foster daughter's wellbeing, Destiny experienced a prophetic vision that showed her whoever would go to Rogue's aid would suffer a terrible fate. Rather selfishly, Mystique decided to use this to her own advantage.
(Marvel Fanfare I#40/2) - Destiny sat in the back of Club ISS, a rather rowdy bar, while Mystique met with Storm to discuss Rogue's recent disappearance from the X-Men's ranks. Giving the windrider information on Rogue's current predicament and most likely whereabouts, Mystique allowed the X-Men to make the first move. After Storm left, Mystique rejoined Destiny who wasn't fooled by her disguise for an instant. The two discussed the wisdom of allowing Storm to take the fall for Rogue, with Destiny reasoning that by saving their daughter in favor of Storm, they might well doom the X-Men and the world in the long run. Wiping away her lover's tears and fears, Raven assured Irene the future would take care of itself before taking her hand and gently dancing the night away.
(Uncanny X-Men I#199 - BTS) - Hoping to curry favor with the government, Mystique sought out security advisor Valerie Cooper and proposed to turn the Brotherhood of Mutants into an officially sanctioned government sponsored team called Freedom Force, in exchange for full pardons. Intrigued, Cooper insisted on a trial run, asking Mystique to locate and bring in Magneto.
(Uncanny X-Men I#199) - Finally catching up with Magneto at a special reception at the national holocaust memorial in Washington D.C, the members of the newly minted Freedom Force engaged the master of magnetism. Destiny picked up on the fact Kitty Pryde, who had attended the function with Magneto, had slipped away in the confusion to contact the X-Men. Accurately predicting the arrival of Colossus, Nightcrawler, Wolverine and Cyclops, Destiny was able to keep the X-Men busy long enough for Mystique and Freedom Force's latest recruit Spiral to focus on Magneto himself. Even as she advised Pyro that he'd lose against Colossus, Destiny foresaw her own defeat at the hands of Shadowcat. Even as she lost consciousness, she was convinced this did not change the outcome she had foreseen. By the time Destiny and the others came to, Magneto had surrendered to Mystique.
(Uncanny X-Men I#200 (fb)) - Following Magneto's capture, NPR reporter Neal Conan filed a news report on the mutant master of magnetism's trial that was about to start in Paris, France. Conan recalled how Freedom Force, with Destiny among them, was essential in bringing the villain to justice.
(Avengers West Coast II#84 (fb)) - Thinking back on her brief time with Destiny and the other members of Freedom Force, Spider-Woman (Julia Carpenter) referred to her teammates as a collection of mutant ex-hoodlums.
(X-Factor I#8) - Ordered to bring in wanted mutant fugitive Rusty Collins, Freedom Force acted on Destiny's insights that told her the boy was holed up with the mutant hunting agency known as X-Factor. However, an unidentified temporal anomaly disrupted her view of the future. Upon engaging X-Factor in New York, Destiny realized Jean Grey was the blindspot she had been sensing, calling the redheaded telekinetic a nexus of probabilities. During the fight with X-Factor, who had correctly assumed Freedom Force was actually the Brotherhood of Mutants, Rusty managed to sneak away. He met up with Sally Blevins, the mutant Skids, and the two were about to make their escape when they were both cornered by Freedom Force.
(X-Factor I#9) - In an unlikely turn of events, a mob had gathered and mistook the garishly clad Freedom Force for mutants threatening seemingly normal humans. The Force found themselves ganged up on, and Destiny narrowly managed to push Mystique out of harm's way when a bottle was thrown at her. Rusty and Skids got away, even as the crowd started pelting Freedom Force with eggs. Only the arrival of X-Factor calmed the mob down long enough for Mystique to show they were indeed government agents. Realizing they might be arrested, the crowd quickly dispersed. Destiny then sensed their quarry, Rusty Collins, was in the sewer tunnels where certain death awaited him. Taking her lover's warnings to heart, Mystique nevertheless ordered Freedom Force to pursue Rusty; after all they had to follow orders.
Chasing Rusty down into the sewers, Destiny's visions became clouded with warnings of death and doom. Still, Blob found the boy and was about to bang him up when X-Factor, in their identities as the X-Terminators, engaged them. Destiny then implored Mystique they had to leave now, sensing imminent death (Destiny picked up the Marauders murdering the Morlocks in the nearby tunnels). Choosing to follow Irene's advice, Mystique ordered Freedom Force to retreat and leave without Collins. This decision made for a terse debriefing with Valerie Cooper, who chewed them out over their apparent ineptitude.
(Avengers Annual I#15 - BTS) - Valerie Cooper sent Freedom Force to bring in the Avengers after allegations made by their former member Quicksilver. Driven to madness following his wife's affair, Pietro had testified before the Committee on Superhuman Activities, claiming the Avengers had actively worked against the public's best interest.
(Avengers Annual I#15) - Spiral teleported Destiny and the other members of Freedom Force to Kansas City, Missouri where both East and West Coast Avengers were competing in a friendly game of baseball. Unimpressed by the former villains' claim they were under arrest, Hercules gave Freedom Force their answer by hurling a pitcher's cart at them. Avalanche saved Destiny from getting hit while Mystique gave her teammates the order to subdue the Avengers using whatever force they deemed necessary. Destiny kept to herself for most of the fight, but stood ready with a gun when a battle weakened Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau) and the Wasp needed a moment to catch their breath. She later used her gun on Hawkeye, hitting him with a tranquilizer blast before he could even cock an arrow. In the end, of all the Avengers only Hank Pym, Captain Marvel, Wonder Man and the Wasp were left standing. Surrounded by Freedom Force, they decided to make a run for it, while Destiny used her stun gun to zap both Pym and the Captain. While Destiny complimented Mystique on her impressive victory, Spiral used a spell to teleport all the Avengers away into custody. With only Captain America missing, they found the Avenger on the phone to Washington, trying to confirm Freedom Force's orders. When he received confirmation, he willingly surrendered himself to them.
Destiny and the other Freedom Force members were present when the Avengers faced Valerie Cooper, Henry Peter Gyrich and Raymond Sikorsky inside the Commission's base in the Rockies. The Freedom Force couldn't help but gloat over the situation, having usually been the guilty party under similar circumstances.
(West Coast Avengers Annual I#1) - Destiny and the other Freedom Forcers were present at Avengers Mansion when Henry Peter Gyrich bluntly informed Mystique her team's services were no longer required, opting to work with Quicksilver and his team of Zodiac L.M.D.'s instead. Annoyed, Mystique and her team took their leave through the mansion's backdoor.
(X-Factor I#10) - Mystique, Destiny and the other Freedom Force members were delighted to see that the news they'd leaked about famous billionaire Warren Worthington being both the mutant adventurer Angel and X-Factor's financial backer made the rounds. Having successfully destroyed Warren's public reputation, Mystique wondered how long it would take for the media to realize X-Factor and the X-Terminators were one and the same.
(Captain America I#334) - Mystique and Destiny were having a quiet lunch together while their fellow Freedom Force members Blob, Pyro and Avalanche needled the new Captain America (John Walker) and Bucky (Lemar Hoskins) who were training at their facility.
(Uncanny X-Men I#223) - The formal introduction of new Freedom Force members Super Sabre, Crimson Commando and Stonewall was interrupted by Destiny who screamed after receiving a vision that foretold of the X-Men's imminent death.
(Uncanny X-Men I#224 - BTS) - Tracing her foster daughter to a gym in San Francisco, Mystique warned Rogue about Destiny's precognitive vision that assured the X-Men would die in or around the city of Dallas in the not too distant future. Hoping this was enough to convince Rogue to come back with her, Mystique left in tears when Rogue refused to abandon her friends.
(Uncanny X-Men I#225) - Determined to keep her foster daughter safe, Mystique and Freedom Force went to Dallas to arrest the X-Men who were trying to gain access to Forge's Eagle Plaza home. Figuring Destiny's prediction wouldn't come true if Rogue and the others were in (protective) custody, Mystique's attempt at keeping everyone safe was met with mockery. When Psylocke telepathically told Dazzler to use her light powers to blind Freedom Force, Destiny quickly told her teammates to cover their eyes. With that, a battle between the two teams broke out, much to Mystique's chagrin who wanted to get out of Dallas as quickly as possible. She turned to Adler for guidance, and Irene told her lover she could no longer see what was to come. The approaching crisis was twisting and tangling the timelines, tearing at the fabric of reality and making it impossible to predict what would happen. All she could see across the endless reaches of eternity was death. As the battle continued, the X-Men decided to temporarily retreat into Eagle Plaza to recover and plan their next move. This granted Destiny another vision: showing her that whoever was inside Eagle Plaza at the break of dawn would die. Just then, a tear in the night sky opened and sunlight fell over Eagle Plaza, proving Adler's vision true.
(Uncanny X-Men I#226) - Overwhelmed by the bleakness of the events, Destiny was unable to see any future for herself, the X-Men or the world. Truly blind for the first time, she started to grow desperate even as the battle between Freedom Force and the X-Men resumed. When reality started to shift around them, causing temporal anomalies to form, Mystique and Wolverine agreed to a truce, and both X-Man and Freedom Forcer alike helped out to keep the civilian population safe from reanimated dinosaurs, ancient warriors and unexplained weather events. All the while, Destiny was left to her own devices, ranting and raving, until she encountered Colossus. Curious to "see" him while none of her visions foretold of his presence, she labeled him being there a temporal fluke, well beyond the bounds of probability. Still, amidst oblivion she did spot a tiny glimmer of hope for Freedom Force and the world inside the Aerie's nest, though none existed for the X-Men. Whatever happened, she assured Colossus with tears in her eyes, the fate of him and the other X-Men was sealed.
(Uncanny X-Men I#227) - Destiny, along with the other members of Freedom Force and most of the world, followed the television footage Neal Conan sent back from their fight against the Adversary and his forces. Watching how Forge ended the battle by sacrificing the life force of the X-Men and their associate Madelyne Pryor, Destiny was present when Forge and Conan returned home following the X-Men's apparent death. Destiny overheard Mystique cursing Forge for killing her daughter.
(New Mutants I#65 - BTS) - Even as the Adversary crisis passed, Destiny became aware of a new threat: furious at Forge for letting her brother die, Magik (Illyana Rasputin) planned to kill the Maker. Destiny, her mind's eye clouded by the air of catastrophe surrounding Illyana, warned Forge of her coming moments after he returned from facing the Adversary.
(New Mutants I#65) - Destiny was standing next to Forge when Illyana and the New Mutants teleported in. Soulsword in hand, Illyana ignored Destiny's warnings and immediately lunged at Forge. However, the Blob and the other members of Freedom Force stepped in to stop Illyana and her fellow mutants from assaulting Forge. When Sunspot managed to topple a wall that took out Freedom Forcers Avalanche, Stonewall and Spiral, Forge was a little curious why Destiny didn't warn them. With a sly smile, the old woman revealed she chose to keep silent in order to teach Spiral a lesson in humility, telling Forge she finds her totally insufferable.
As the battle progressed, Destiny's precognitive powers showed her the true future she feared Illyana would bring to pass. Asking Mirage to show everyone what she saw, Destiny's mind revealed an army of techno-organic demons invading New York (the future events that would become known as Inferno). Destiny assured all those present that this disaster would be caused by Illyana, had already started and would only be hastened by her death. Unimpressed by the old seer's words, Illyana teleported herself and the New Mutants away for a final confrontation against Forge anyway. Watching them go, Destiny assured a worried Mystique that her warning has already made a difference, she only hoped it would be enough.
(X-Factor I#30) - Having witnessed the events in Dallas that claimed the life of Madelyne Prior and his brother Havok (Alex Summers), X-Factor members Cyclops and Jean Grey rushed out to Dallas for a fact finding mission. Hoping to get some answers and discover the location of Scott's baby boy, Nathan, they ran into Freedom Force. Destiny, still unable to read Jean Grey due to an unexplained temporal anomaly, did warn her teammates about Cyclops' violent intent. However, Cyclops and Jean were quickly overpowered and placed under arrest for not obeying the mutant registration act.
(X-Factor I#31) - Breaking free, Cyclops and Jean Grey once again fought Freedom Force. Angered by the team's continued refusal to reveal anything about his son, Cyclops used his eyebeams to pierce the Blob's skin. As Fred Dukes cried out in pain, Destiny stepped in and revealed as much as she could ascertain about the boy's situation. Assuring them the child was indeed alive, Destiny told the two heroes to look for baby Nathan in New York.
(X-Factor I#33) - Mere minutes after X-Factor defeated the Alliance of Evil, who had been protesting the Mutant Registration Act, Destiny and Freedom Force arrived to take the villains into custody, subtly reminding X-Factor they had yet to register as well.
(Captain American I#346) - Freedom Force and Battlestar were ordered to go after the mutant terrorists known as the Resistants. Planning to lure the team to them by holding a mock trial for renowned mutant terrorist Quicksilver (Mystique in disguise), Freedom Force members acted as judge and jury. After the mock trial entered its fourth day, the Resistants finally showed up, but their newest member, the telepathic Think Tank (Marvin Flumm) picked up the deception before they made their presence known. Destiny's future-sight told her they'd been found out and she yelled in court, warning them of an approaching meteor hurled at the courtroom courtesy of Resistants member Meteorite. Thanks to Destiny's head's up, Freedom Force kept everyone safe while Captain America (John Walker) single-handedly took on the Resistants.
(New Mutants I#78) - Ordered to bring in Rusty Collins after he nearly torched Manhattan, Freedom Force tracked him down along with the New Mutants over New York. Destiny sensed some outside force interfering with her visions (the astral presence of Doctor Strange who was observing the young mutants). That didn't prevent her from foreseeing that Rictor was about to attack the helicopter. Before Rictor could target the craft with his vibratory powers, the Crimson Commando took him out with a gunshot to the temple. Forcing the New Mutants to land on Liberty Island, the members of Freedom Force tried to apprehend the mutants and didn't buy their excuse for having to rush off (Dani Moonstar's affliction with Asgardian magic that threatened to set the world on fire if she didn't receive treatment in time). Unable to determine if their claims were true, all Destiny could see was that if Rusty Collins were to reach X-Factor's Ship, the course of Freedom Force's history would be changed for the worst. When the New Mutants tried to make a run for it, Freedom Force attempted to stop them, leaving Destiny behind on Liberty Island. In the end, Danielle Moonstar's fire magic activated itself before she could be treated, forcing the specter of Doctor Strange to immediately teleport the team to Asgard while a dumbstruck Freedom Force was left behind without explanation.
(Uncanny X-Men I#254) - Waking from a dream that saw her as the only one left alive in a universe carved out of crystal before shattering herself, Irene had breakfast with Mystique before sensing an impending call from Valerie Cooper. Joining Mystique for the mission briefing, she was present when Raven lost it upon seeing Forge and hearing he was to accompany Freedom Force to Muir Island, which was currently under siege from the Reavers. After some doing, Mystique agreed to go on the mission, while Destiny told her lover she should really start to think more kindly towards Forge, considering their fates are so intertwined.
(Uncanny X-Men I#255 - BTS) - En route to Muir Island, Destiny sensed a greater evil than the mere presence of the Reavers. Diving the intentions of Legion (David Haller) who, influenced by the Shadow King, had become cruel and capricious in the use of his powers, she learned she would die at his hands. Making peace with her fate, she kept quiet.
(Uncanny X-Men I#255) - Upon reaching Muir Island and dropping off Blob to run interference, Mystique ordered the pilots of the Freedom Force jet to get them on the ground as quickly as possible. Spending a few moment with Destiny, she couldn't help but notice Adler being withdrawn and on edge. Ignoring Raven's plea to let her help, Irene calmly assured her it was too late for that. At that moment Lady Deathstrike jumped on the nose of the FF jet and, with a slash, killed the pilots, which caused the plane to spiral out of control and crash. Surviving the ordeal thanks to Pyro's control over flames, Destiny was carried out by Stonewall while Forge pulled Mystique to safety. Not too grateful, Mystique ordered the Maker to take Destiny to Moira MacTaggert's lab and stay with her for protection. Forge's argument that they'd be of more use in the field was cut short when Pyro attacked the approaching Reavers Skullbuster, Pretty Boy and Bonebreaker.
After Forge took her to MacTaggert's labs, Destiny insisted he go back to help Mystique in whatever way he could. Not eager to disobey orders and risk angering her again after inadvertently causing Rogue's death, Forge initially refused. Persistent, Destiny assured him he should go, but not before telling him he should learn to love Mystique with all his heart, because she deserved no less. Confused, Forge stated his heart was spoken for, but Destiny insisted those were merely the words of one solely aware of the present. She managed to send him off moments before Legion appeared. Destiny awaited what was to come with a smile.
(X-Men Forever I#2 - BTS) - Legion attacked Destiny with a telepathic blast. Entering her mind, he was overcome by her power to see the future. Unable to endure the vision of what his own future held, he killed her (before breaking contact, he saw himself traveling back to the past to murder Magneto, accidentally killing his father Charles Xavier and diverging the Age of Apocalypse reality (Earth-295) in the process). However, the specter of her mind took up permanent residence in his head.
(Uncanny X-Men Annual I#16 (fb) - BTS) - At the moment of her death, Destiny was visited by "the angel of death," which absorbed her mutant abilities with a kiss.
(Uncanny X-Men I#255) - Legion used his telepathy to transmit Irene's dying moments directly into Mystique's mind, even as she was facing Donald Pierce and his Reavers. Rescued by Stonewall, Pyro and Forge, Mystique had eye for little else than the fate of Destiny, even as the Reavers teleported away.
(X-Men Forever I#2) - After recovering Destiny's body and laying it to rest in the Freedom Force jet, Mystique's body was taken over by her own future self, who was time traveling backwards along her past. Horrified to have to live through the loss of her lover once again, Mystique realized this was why she couldn't recall what had happened in the hours following Adler's death. Taking some time for herself, she walked on the beaches of Muir when Legion approached her. After forcing her to experience what he had done, Legion begged to be killed for his actions, but Raven refused and managed to call him a coward before she continued her time travels.
(Uncanny X-Men I#265 (fb) - BTS) - The Shadow King, posing as police lieutenant Jacob Reisz, delighted in the news that Destiny had recently passed. This, he claimed, made Mystique all the more vulnerable to his plans because she no longer had any advance warnings.
(Uncanny X-Men I#266 - BTS) - Destiny had left a number of instructions for Mystique that were only to be opened after her death. Filled with predictions of the future, Raven learned that Valerie Cooper would soon come to kill her, as per orders of the Shadow King.
(Uncanny X-Men I#266 (fb) - BTS) - Alone in Freedom Force's headquarters, Mystique was quietly mourning the loss of Destiny, shedding a tear as she held a photo of the two of them during their early years to her breast. Momentarily shifting into her dead lover's form, she heard Valerie Cooper sneaking in, gun in hand. Startling Cooper by announcing she was well aware of what she was planning, Mystique went on to say that if Destiny, a precog, could accept the inevitable, so could she.
(X-Factor Annual I#6 - BTS) - Honoring Irene's last wishes, a severely depressed Mystique boarded a cruise ship in order to reach the mysterious coordinates Adler wanted her ashes scattered at. Opening the box that contained her will, Mystique saw a ring, a quote from the Beatles' song "Obladi, Oblada (Life Goes On)," and the photo of the two of them together; and she recalled Irene's promise to make her laugh. Saddened that she never did get to do that, Mystique wept while throwing her lover's remains overboard at the scheduled time. Just then, a freak wind blew the ashes back in her face. Initially startled and frustrated by the turn of events, Mystique then realized Adler had foreseen this turn of events years before. Struck by the silliness of the situation, Raven cheered up, started laughing and broke into the Beatles song...finally appreciating and accepting that life goes on.
(Uncanny X-Men Annual I#16 - BTS) - Gravely wounded after trying to foil a terrorist plot aimed at causing nuclear armageddon, Archangel was visited in his fever dreams by the "Angel of Death" who wanted to absorb his powers. Using Destiny's precognitive abilities, "the Angel" discovered Warren Worthington's life wasn't over yet and left him alone.
(X-Men I#38) - Though comatose, Legion's mind was still active. In his dreamscape, he had regular encounters with Destiny. During their most recent visit, she offered cryptic clues about a possible way to help his father's dream come true. Learning what he could do to make things right made Legion wake up, screaming for Destiny to be more specific before lapsing into comatose sleep once more.
(X-Factor I#108 - BTS) - Arriving in Tel
Aviv, Israel to assassinate Legion as payback for him killing her
lover, Mystique took a moment to reflect on how much she missed Irene
Adler. Fighting her tears, she forced herself to soldier on.
(X-Factor I#109) - Destiny visited Legion in his dreams, asking him if he'd relayed her message to Mystique yet. Irene wanted Raven to know that her death wasn't Legion's fault, even if he did kill her. Instead, her demise was something the fates themselves had destined to occur. Legion didn't answer, instead he apologized for having killed her. Destiny assured him he should let go of this guilt because it would set into motion events that would change reality itself. Legion didn't heed her warnings and left, promising to make it all better.
(X-Men I#39) - While making his way across the Negev desert, Legion was visited by the spectral image of Destiny who told him he was the only one capable of healing the rift between humans and mutants that threatened to tear the world apart. Irene urged the boy to fulfill his destiny. Complying, he teleported away.
(X-Factor I#115 - BTS) - Curious to learn more about Destiny's prediction he was to end up with Mystique, Forge recreated a holographic image of Irene Adler in X-Factor's Fall's Edge headquarters. The holo-Irene came equipped with all the data available on the real Destiny. When Mystique accidentally encountered the holographic visage of her deceased lover, she flipped out and demanded Forge deleted the program, feeling it defiled Irene's memory.
(X-Factor I#135 - BTS) - On a visit to the Chase family, Trevor wanted to know all about Mystique's connections to his late grandmother Irene. Visibly shaken by the memories this brought back, all Raven could tell him was how special Irene was and that she regretted that Trevor had never gotten to know her.
(Fantastic Four III#16 - BTS) - The essences of Destiny and Legion somehow joined up with the sorceress Margali Szardos of the Winding Way. Regarding themselves as mankind's defenders, they used their powers to fight and counter whatever evil might oppose humanity.
(Fantastic Four III#16) - Using her precognitive powers, Destiny warned Margali of a looming crisis on an alternate Earth. Deeming the best possible solution to this problem to be the involvement of the Fantastic Four of Earth-616, Szardos used her magics to send the team to the troubled planet. After the successful completion of their mission, Destiny and Legion watched as Margali sent the FF on their way home again.
(X-Men I#94) - Staying the night at Mystique's uptown Manhattan apartment, Kitty Pryde couldn't help but snoop around, looking at the various mementos of the past life Mystique, Rogue and Destiny had together in hopes of finding something like an adorably awkward childhood photo of Rogue's. When she came across a particular painting, she couldn't help but look behind it. Reading the inscription "Cat Shadow X, reach in D", Kitty phased her hand through the frame and retrieved Destiny's journal. Not telling Mystique of her find, Kitty took it back to the X-Men for further study.
(X-Men I#109 - BTS) - Convinced Destiny's diaries could potentially cause enormous damage in the wrong hands, Storm assembled a team of X-Men to mount a global search for the remaining journals that made up the 13 volume set.
(X-Treme X-Men I#4 - BTS) - As Destiny had predicted, the quest to find her missing diaries brought Rogue and her fellow X-Men to Valencia. There, they discovered Irene's mansion and the care package she'd left for them years earlier. While Storm happily donned the rather revealing new costume the seer had gifted her, Rogue became frustrated by the fact her mother was apparently able to foresee and prepare all this, yet did nothing to keep herself from getting killed. Sage calmed her by pointing out that while Destiny's powers did indeed offer her a perspective they lacked, Adler also didn't have the skill to properly use it. She then suggested they didn't focus on the fact Irene had failed, but that she was giving the X-Men every chance to succeed.
(X-Treme X-Men Annual I#1 - BTS) - During a visit to the realm known to Australian Aborigines as Dreamtime, Rogue discovered one of Destiny's diaries and evidence of a connection between her foster mother and the X-Men's old teleporting ally Gateway. After learning of the Shadow King's involvement in her family's past, Rogue dealt with the telepathic villain and collected the copy of Destiny's diaries that Gateway had in his possession.
(X-Treme X-Men I#17 - BTS) - After Sage augmented Rogue's mutant powers during the fight against the interdimensional conqueror Khan in Madripoor, Rogue was now able to manifest the powers of all those she had once absorbed or "imprinted on." Channeling Irene Adler's essence and her precognitive abilities, Rogue went on to fight Vargas, just as it had been predicted in one of Destiny's diaries. The battle went as described and was supposed to end with her stabbing Vargas to death with his own sword. However, just as she was ready to strike, Rogue realized that the diaries were not a roadmap to the future, but rather a trap that tricked its readers to treat the future as if it was already the past. Choosing her own fate, Rogue decided to spare Vargas' life. This single act convinced Rogue and the others that this act of "defiance" broke the cycle of Destiny's predictions, thereby eliminating the immediate need to chase after the remaining volumes (see comments).
(Marvel Tarot#1 - BTS) - The First Tarot showed Ian McNee that Destiny was part of the Wheel of Fortune card. The trio consisted of the Mother (Margali Szardos), the Maiden (Amanda Sefton) and Destiny as the Crone. McNee noted he felt bad for Destiny he couldn't imagine her ghost would be resting any time soon.
(X-Men Legacy I#211 - BTS) - While visiting Almogordo in hopes of uncovering some clues about his past, Charles Xavier encountered a photo of his father Brian and his co workers Kurt Marko, Irene Adler and Nathan Milbury.
(X-Force III#19) - Tipped off by Shaw, Selene had Caliban track down what little remained of Destiny. Using a combination of magic and the techno-organic transmode virus, she revived the precognitive mutant (see comments).
(X-Men Legacy I#232 (fb) - BTS) - When Selene brought back Destiny, the fact that she passed on Muir Island, where Proteus also died, forged a link between the two that allowed the reality altering mutant to return as well.
(X-Necrosha I#1/3) - Unlike the two dozen other deceased friends and foes of the X-Men, Irene Adler wasn't used by Selene to attack the living. Instead, she kept Destiny imprisoned in a mansion in New Orleans. Referring to Irene as "Crone," the mutant energy vampire wanted Adler to see for her. When Destiny protested, claiming that she'd been dead for so long her view of the future had become fragmented at best, Selene had her tortured by Senyaka before locking her away. There, Irene used her astral projection powers to contact the young mutant Blindfold on Utopia. Calling her "granddaughter," Irene warned her of the coming threat of Proteus. Noticing her powers of precognition interfered with Blindfold's, Adler broke contact... realizing too late she hadn't shared all she needed to tell.
(X-Men Legacy I#231 - BTS) - While Selene's resurrected troops were assaulting Utopia, Blindfold rushed to Cyclops to inform him of Destiny's message: "Genosha. Muir Island. Not just the Queen, but the cancer too.". Figuring this warning could not be ignored, Cyclops sent an away team led by Nightcrawler, consisting of Blindfold, Colossus, Husk, Magneto, Psylocke, Rogue and Trance to Muir Island.
(X-Men Legacy I#231) - After having been moved to her new cell on Necrosha (formerly the island of Genosha), Destiny pleaded with her jailer Leon Matheson to be released in exchange for her insights into his future. When he complied, she told him what he wanted to know (even thought that led to him trying to commit suicide). Destiny then stole a seaplane from the Necrosha docks and took off.
(X-Men Legacy I#232 (fb)) - After
arriving on Muir Island to help out, Destiny quickly learned Proteus
had already returned in full force and was now capable of controlling
multiple hosts as one. Taking Blindfold as his primary form, Proteus tried
to take over Destiny as well but learned that the techno-organic
nature of her new physical form made her unsuitable as a host body.
When only Magneto and Rogue were left to oppose Proteus, the Master of
Magnetism dragged Proteus and the piece of Muir he was standing on
into the upper atmosphere for a final confrontation.
(X-Men Legacy I#233) - While Magneto faced Proteus, back on Muir Island it became obvious to Rogue that Psylocke's psi-knife was capable of severing Proteus' connection to his host bodies. Manifesting her own version of the blade, she stabbed and freed Destiny, Trance and Nightcrawler. When only Husk, turned into lava, remained under Proteus' spell, Psylocke helped out and stabbed Paige's body with her psi-knife. After Magneto destroyed Proteus by dispersing his energy form, Destiny sensed her end was near as well because Selene's magic and the techno-organic virus that gave her life were giving out. Taking the time left to her to say a proper goodbye to her foster daughter, Irene gave Rogue some final motherly advice. Even though Rogue wanted to stay with Irene when she died, Destiny insisted she would be alone when her time came. Visiting Blindfold before the end, she dispelled the rumors she was her mother, instead calling herself the girl's great grandmother of sorts, related enough to be able to have contacted her instead of Rogue.
(X-Men: Chaos War I#1) - During the war
against the Chaos King (Amatsu-Mikaboshi), several deceased X-Men and
associates (Banshee, Thunderbird, Esme & Sophie Cuckoo, Moira
MacTaggert and several Madrox duplicates), found themselves
resurrected at the destroyed Xavier Institute. Unbeknownst to anyone,
Destiny had come back as well, secretly inhabiting Moira MacTaggert's
body, while slowly turning it into a copy of Irene Adler's. In the
wreckage of the Institute, Moira found a copy of Destiny's diaries
that outlined in great detail how they could help stop the march of
the Chaos King, by traveling to Muir Island and unlocking the power
of the intersecting laylines located there. Shortly after that, the
Chaos King's lackey Carrion Crow made his presence known, ready to
stop the X-Men from carrying out their mission. Even as Thunderbird
summoned the power of the Sky God that brought them back to arrange
transportation to Muir, the villain claimed several Madrox duplicates
and turned Esme Cuckoo into his personal slave even as Thunderbird led
the others through the portal to Muir.
(X-Men: Chaos War I#2) - On Muir Island, the remaining X-Men were about to be overrun by Carrion Crow and his followers, until John Proudstar became one with the Thunderbird. Unleashing its mystical energies to unlock the laylines, Proudstar, Banshee and Destiny sacrificed themselves once more so the rest of the universe had a fighting chance to live.
(Astonishing X-Men III#51 - BTS) - Attending the wedding of Northstar and Kyle Jinadu made Rogue think about her foster mothers Destiny and Mystique. Seeing the happiness shared by the super-powered same sex couple, made Rogue wonder if the lives of her mothers would have turned out differently had they been allowed to openly celebrate their love and marry. Kitty Pryde comforted her teammate.
Comments: Created by Chris Claremont (writer), John Byrne (pencils), Terry Austin (inks).
Writing a profile on a character whose very power is knowing everything, tends to make pinpointing when she knew what an arduous, yet interesting task. It's hard to determine when Destiny exactly took the specific actions that would play out years later, but this seems the most coherent timeline I could create.
Just like Chris Claremont admitted to having difficulties
incorporating Charles Xavier into stories without the professor's
presence rendering everyone else superfluous, writing Destiny posed
similarly challenging. After all, there's not much suspense trying to
fight someone whose very power is to know your every move. That's why in
about 80 percent of all her appearances, Destiny's future-sight is
hindered and hampered by one (temporal) anomaly or another. While that
makes sense storywise, robbing Adler of her one actual super power does
kind of turn her into a blind geriatric whose only gimmick is an
oversized hat and a crossbow. Her outfit, with those unforgettable
exposed upper legs, remains a risqué classic, though.
Chris Claremont never made it a secret Mystique and Destiny were lovers, even though the Comics Code Authority's rules and restrictions forced him to write their relationship as purely platonic during the early years (though why platonic friends would live in the same house, raising their adopted daughter was a little odd... Then again, that's also basically the premise of those wholesome, classic 80s sitcoms My Two Dads and Full House). Claremont, ever eager to push the envelope, intended Rogue (and possibly Nightcrawler) to be Mystique and Destiny's actual children. After all, reasoned Chris, if Mystique can become an anatomically correct male, shouldn't she be able to impregnate her lover? Marvel kindly passed on this bit of genre breaking character development. All this makes the brief comment Rogue made at Northstar's wedding about what would have happened if her moms had been able to tie the knot all the more poignant and well deserved.
Having the (X-Treme) X-Men abandon the quest for Destiny's diaries just because Rogue had contradicted one of Adler's predictions by sparing Vargas is a little odd to say the least. Adler wrote down dozens if not hundreds of visions totally unrelated to this particular case so casually ignoring their validity seems somewhat foolish (and undoubtedly mandated by Marvel's higher ups who wanted the X-Treme team to start playing a more conventional part in the X-Men's then current continuity).
It was never explained how Selene could resurrect the corpse of Destiny, after all Irene Adler was cremated. Maybe the trace amounts of particles from her ashes were enough for Selene to work her magic on?
