First Appearance: Fallen Angels I#2 (May, 1987)

Powers/Abilities: All the inhabitants of the Coconut Grove learned a skill to bend space, creating a warp to connect two points in space that may be in different streets, in different solar systems or even in different universes or dimensional planes. This created a teleportation pathway between a location near Ariel and any other position, that could be used to transport, in either sense, anything physical enough to cross a door - including people, light, sound or smells. To use the power, Ariel required a physical doorway operative in either end and she needed to mentally focus on the doors, juxtaposing it with each other. She did not need to have seen the door in the end point, as long as she could picture in her mind the general style of a door in that area. The other sides of each of the doors were blocked as long as she used her powers.
    Ariel claimed that anyone crossing her teleportational gateway perceptibly felt a static cling.

    Clear limitations of this power included the need of an operative door: Ariel was once imprisoned in a force beam designed by her own species. She also explained that her power was useless in forests and natural environments. She once reached Dinosaur World; the doorway in that planet was an out-of-place man-sized wooden door, similar to the one in the Clubhouse. Dinosaur World, though, was visited by technologically-advanced aliens in flying saucers (in Devil Dinosaur I#4-6) who did use artificial doors, some of which may have been left behind and operational enough for Ariel's use.

    The mutant Trance (Hope Abbott), who had astral and intangibility powers, was unable to cross Ariel's gateway. When she tried to do so in a trip from San Francisco to Marin County, she disappeared mid-trip and suddenly reappeared several meters over the streets of San Francisco, immediately falling to the floor. Ariel did not notice her disappearance until another person called her attention to it.

    Though she sometimes adopts a vapid "Valley Girl" attitude and mannerisms, Ariel possesses above-average intelligence and has a sophisticated understanding of spatial manipulation and a a good understanding of subjective physics (apparently typical for her people to use their space warping power.

    Ariel was also identified as the only living mutant in her species, with the psionic ability to influence other people's minds. Ariel could convince anyone to do, believe, forget, remember or think anything she said, always sounding reasonable and wise, regardless of what the victim wished. Her power required her to use her voice in a soothing way and to carefully choose her words, but she had been using her power instinctively for some time before she even knew she had it. She can affect humans, mutants and natives of Coconut Grove.

Height: 5'5"
Weight: 130 lbs.

Hair: White and pink; sometimes streaked with other colors; sometimes appearing blue

(Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Ariel was a female alien coming from a planet called the Coconut Grove, where natives are pleasure-pursuing hedonists obsessed with outlandish fashion and kitsch trends.

(Fallen Angels I#5 (fb) - BTS / Fallen Angels I#7 (fb) - BTS / Fallen Angels I#8 (fb) - BTS / Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Ariel's species was genetically very stable: For millions of years, longer than the locals could describe, no mutants had been recorded in the Coconut Grove, the word "mutation" itself having fallen into disuse. In an attempt to emotionally deny their plight, they had surrender to their fad-consuming bizarre behavior.

(Fallen Angels I#7 (fb) - BTS / Fallen Angels I#8 (fb) - BTS / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Presumably around the 16th century, Ariel's male relative (also called Ariel) visited Earth, inspiring William Shakespeare's character in the play "The Tempest." Male Ariel was known for his extraordinary influencing skills.

    The modern, female Ariel inherited these skills; other people in her family were also particularly convincing. Female Ariel's persuasion capacity was later revealed to be a mutant superpower. Nobody in Coconut Grove, including Ariel, knew that she was a mutant, but Ariel used those powers instinctively to convince anyone she interacted with of the wisdom in her words.

(Fallen Angels I#5 (fb) - BTS / Fallen Angels I#8 (fb) - BTS / Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - In recent years, Coconut Grove planetary leaders, including Unipar, in an attempt to reboot the species' evolution, developed a plan to send an agent to a different planet, Earth, where superhuman mutants were plentifully turning up. The agent would bring several of those mutants, mostly Earth-born ones, to the Coconut Grove, where their scientists would study them to try to isolate their X-Factor for its later duplication.

    Ariel was chosen as the agent, and she accepted the mission due to its importance for their planet, and also because she was promised a hefty payment. Ariel did not ask what Unipar would do with his mutant "guests" exactly; and Unipar did not mention that the mutants would be analyzed in excruciating, painful and potentially lethal ways.

(Fallen Angels I#3 (fb) - BTS / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - On Earth, Ariel found mutant criminal Vanisher, leader of a small team of teenage thieves who woould eventually became a gang of Manhattan-located misfits, the Fallen Angels, working together to enjoy their mutual company and to keep each other safe while based out of a squatter locale, the Beat Street Clubhouse.

(Fallen Angels I#3 (fb) - BTS / Fallen Angels I#5 (fb) - BTS / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Ariel befriended fellow teammember Chance, a pre-teen, tough Korean runaway. Ariel recruited Chance as a confidante and ally on her quest to obtain mutants, promising Chance a part of her profits.

(Fallen Angels I#3 (fb) - BTS) Fallen Angels founding member Tabitha Smith, alias Boom Boom and Time Bomb, voluntarily left the team. She ended up under the care of X-Factor, a team of mutants who masquerade as mutant-hunters.

(Fallen Angels I#3 (fb) - BTS / Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Ariel's help contributed to the Fallen Angels obtaining new members, most of them mutants but not exclusively. Ariel joined Chance and Vanisher to recruit three new members: young, nerdy cyborgGomi and his two intelligent cyborg lobsters Bill and Don living in a Coney Island laboratory, and offered them all membership. Gomi and the lobsters voted two to one to join the Angels, so all three joined.

(Fallen Angels I#4 (fb) - BTS ) - Thanks to Earth media, Ariel knew about two mutants who visited Earth, furry humanoid Moonboy and his partner, huge red tyrannosaurus-like Devil Dinosaur. They were believed to come from the past, but Ariel found they were from another planet (really from a different universe, Earth-78411 "Dinosaur World"). Ariel's space-bending power allowed her to reach this place, she found it was evolutively very active, then decided to visit it with the Fallen Angels to recruit these two mutants. Dinosaur World was a hostile location full of dangerous creatures, but Ariel thought that Devil and Moonboy were too valuable and she was ready to sacrifice less important mutants like Vanisher to get them.

(Fallen Angels I#2) - Chance was harassed by thugs and rescued by a fugitive mutant, Sunspot (Roberto Da Costa). Ariel used her teleportation powers to help Chance escape while Sunspot was being battered, because the assailants were too busy with him to notice the girls.

(Fallen Angels I#3 / Fallen Angels I#7 (fb) - BTS / Fallen Angels I#8 (fb) - BTS) - Ariel convinced the Fallen Angels to search for Sunspot, purportedly because Ariel and Chance were worried about his well-being. However, the true reason was that, Ariel had identified Sunspot as a mutant and wanted him in the team.

(Fallen Angels I#2) - Gomi found Sunspot and his friend and fellow fugitive Warlock at the door of a seafood restaurant, offering them to join the Fallen Angels. Sunspot was simultaneously approached by two other mutants, the Multiple Man and Siryn, sent by Sunspot's other friends to bring him back home. This led to some misunderstanding and violence. Ariel used her powers to create a teleporation gateway in the restaurant door, from which both Ariel and Chance offered Sunspot a haven. Sunspot went there, recognizing Chance; Warlock followed his friend Sunspot and some dopplegangers of the Multiple Man followed them to convince them; Ariel was offering all of them membership. Siryn and one doppleganger of Multiple Man, however, declined joining.

(Fallen Angels I#3) - In the Clubhouse, Ariel convinced Sunspot and the Multiple Man of the convenience of staying. Ariel then joined Chance in a visit to restaurant McNutly's to steal food for everyone. Gomi cleaned up the table, causing a small disaster, and the Vanisher reprimanded him, but the lobsters then attacked the Vanisher. Ariel was unsympathetic, because all the Fallen Angels knew that the lobsters were hostile with anyone being too harsh with Gomi.

(Fallen Angels I#3 / X-Factor I#17) - Vanisher, wrongly believing that Boom Boom was imprisoned by X-Factor, sent Ariel to rescue her. Ariel agreed, mostly because Boom Boom was a mutant she wanted in her plans. She demonstrated her skills and appeared in a broom closet in X-Factor's HQ. As Boom Boom was not really imprisoned, however, the rescue was relatively easy.

(Fallen Angels I#3 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1) - Siryn and the other Multiple Man found the Clubhouse. Siryn demanded that Sunspot go back home; Sunspot and Chance reacted rudely, and Ariel suggested that they argue outside. She then took the chance to transport them all to Dinosaur World.

(Fallen Angels I#4) - In Dinosaur World, the Fallen Angels were attacked by startled dinosaurs. The terrified Ariel ran away, returning only when the situation was calmer. She found Chance helping an unconscious Sunspot, and convinced her friend to not grow too fond of him (although Chance did respect brave, selfless Sunspot). Chance and Ariel then left Sunspot and found Vanisher, who led them to the rest of the team. Once there, the Multiple Man explained that his mutant-detecting portable technology Cerebro identified both Ariel and Chance as latent mutants, information that they rejected. Ariel then found Devil and Moonboy, and she recruited them for their team.

(Fallen Angels I#5) - Back in Manhattan, Ariel joined Warlock, Gomi and the lobsters in looking for a bigger place for Devil to sleep; they found a loading bay in the contiguous building. The Vanisher then sent the Angels in pairs to steal food; Ariel and Chance went after a fruit seller, whom Ariel convinced to give them all the fruit they could carry. Ariel insisted that Chance should not be friendly with Sunspot, leading to them both playing a prank on Sunspot, leaving him in the (female-only) YWCA.

    During the same foraging activity, however, Devil Dinosaur accidentally killed Don the lobster by stepping on him.

(Fallen Angels I#6 / Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1) - Seeing Don's death, Ariel decided that the Angels were in constant danger and that she should accelerate her plans. She nonchalantly attended Don's funeral, trying to steer clear of the more friendly Angels, even mocking them with Chance. During the funeral, Chance's mutant power activated and every other mutant in the area was unable to control their powers, leading to some chaos and violence; and, for the first time, Ariel was unable to sweet-talk even her friend Chance. The Vanisher mistakenly believed the Angels had been attacked by some mutant-hunting party, meaning their security had been compromised.

    Ariel decided to teleport them all to Coconut Grove, offering them a supposed haven.trapped in force beam

(Fallen Angels I#7) - The Coconut Grove received the Fallen Angels with honors, offering them clothing, makeup and compliments; Ariel put a shoulder-padded jacket on Warlock, then helped restoring Chance's original appearance when she was disgusted at the new style. As Sunspot mocked Chance, Ariel and Boom Boom cheered her up by playing a practical joke on Sunspot. Ariel and Chance then scorned the Fallen Angels; noticing that Boom Boom was within hearing range (and that she had joined in the derision), Ariel convinced Boom Boom to forget that conversation. The Angels were then summoned by the Vanisher, so that Ariel could explain the importance of mutants in the Coconut Grove.

    Multiple Man once again identified Chance and Ariel as mutants using his technology, even checking whether it was operative or not.

(Fallen Angels I#7 / Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Local constabulary, the Disruptors, arrested the Fallen Angels, using technology to deprive them of their powers. Having identified Chance as a mutant, they took her too, convincing Ariel to stop her complaints and openly betray her friend, after which they also arrested Ariel in a force beam.

(Fallen Angels I#8 / Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - The Fallen Angels were given new uniforms and taken to a jail using an energy field to dampen their powers. Unipar took Ariel's glasses and kept her in a force pillar without doors; they then tried to take one of the Multiple Man's doppleganger, but there was some struggle, and the Multiple Man was shot; instead, they took another Multiple Man and Sunspot. Chance was angry with Ariel.

    Later, Gomi was rescued by Bill the lobster, and he convinced Bill to release the other Angels too. As Ariel had betrayed her, they voted about her; Boom Boom being the only one openly against rescuing her (Vanisher was relunctant only because helping Ariel put the others in danger). Gomi used his cyborg powers to break the force beam generator and release Ariel. The Angels then released Sunspot and the Multiple Man.

    Unipar sent guards and surrounded the escapees; but Ariel took a chance by showing herself in order to negotiate. Ariel convinced Unipar (using her powers, boosted by Chance's) that there was no need to research mutants because Ariel's powers proved that evolution had been naturally restored to Coconut Grove; and, if the Angels were defeated and killed, then Unipar would lose his test subjects (also, Devil gave the Angels an advantage in a fight). Unipar agreed to let the Angels go and offered Ariel the opportunity to stay, but she left with her friends and continued her career as a member of the Fallen Angels.

(Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe #1) - The Fallen Angels eventually dissolved. Ariel then chose to take some time and "see more of Earth's wild side."

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Ariel eventually moved to San Francisco.

(X-Men: Legacy I#226 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - In San Francisco, a mutant community was formed around the locally-based X-Men. Cyclops recruited Ariel, a mutant, and she became an X-Man (Woman).

(X-Men: Legacy I#260 (fb)) - Ariel earned Cyclops' respect by risking her own life in missions when he ordered so. Ariel also became Rogue's friend, even if Rogue sometimes found Ariel obnoxious and offensive.

(X-Men: Legacy I#226) - Violence erupted in the streets of San Francisco between supporters and opponents of Proposition X, an initiative to sterilize every human mutant, which led to fights between the X-Men and the Dark Avengers. Cyclops sent Ariel and mutant Onyx (Sidney Green) to give support to Gambit (Remy LeBeau) and rescue Trance (Hope Abbott) using Ariel's space bending powers.

(X-Men: Legacy I#227) - Onyx picked up Trance in his arms, and Ariel teleported them to X-Men HQ in Marin County; but Trance's intangibility and astral powers caused her to slip away when going across the gateway, making her reappear in freefall over the streets; Ariel and Onyx only noticed when they were back home, reporting to the Cuckoos.

    The X-Men prepared a different rescue operation for Trance, without Ariel's help.

(X-Men: Legacy I#228) - Trance developed new skills, particularly new reactions to energy fields, due to her unusual interaction with Ariel's teleportation gateway.

(X-Men: Legacy I#229) - The X-Men, based in asteroid Utopia, prepared a rescue operation for mutant Bling!, captured by Emplate in an extradimensional location. X-Men scientists Madison Jeffries, Dr. Nemesis and Dr. Kavita Rao researched a way to open the dimensional warp, and they asked Ariel for her help as their teleporter, even though she preferred to devote her time to nail varnishing and TV watching. The scientists discover a way to direct Ariel's teleportation even without her approval.

(X-Men: Legacy I#230) - Ariel helped Dr. Rao in the lab when the villain Emplate briefly attacked Utopia.

(X-Men: Legacy I#234) - Ariel's thought about matching clothes were detected by Rogue when the latter had absorbed the Cuckoos' telepathy powers.

(X-Men: Legacy I#235 / New Mutants III#12 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - The X-Men (Archangel, Magik, Nightcrawler, Rogue Wolverine, X-23) were sent on a mission to rescue mutant Hope Summers, who was expected to save mutantkind from extinction.

    When they lost Magik's teleportation powers, Cyclops sent Ariel to replace her. Ariel joined the team on Route 66, and traveled on a jeep with Wolverine and X-23. The vehicle was attacked by a fighter jet sent by anti-mutant Sentinel Bastion; a jet-launched missile that Archangel failed to stop impacted the vehicle causing an explosion. Wolverine and X-23 survived due to their healing factor powers, but the X-Men believed Ariel had died.

(X-Men: Legacy I#259 / X-Men: Legacy I#260) - Ariel, however, had barely survived by forfeiting her barbeque nachos and, swearing, trying to open the car's door to use it as a gateway for her teleportation powers. The explosion caught her and, covered in flames, she was pushed by shockwaves through her own teleporter, losing her Zanotti heels in the process. She failed to re-appear in a different location and instead ended up trapped outside space and probably time.
    Still, her mutant powers created a map of her location, based on her energy signature, that was sent to the X-Men so that they could eventually find her.

(X-Men: Legacy I#259) - In Mutopia, Rogue absorbed Magneto's powers and appreciated an unidentified alien mutant presence in the area which was tracked to their ally Korvus Rook'shir's sword: The sword was the key to the door they needed.

    The mutant Blindfold revealed that it was a burning, injured mutant looking for a door, leading the X-Men to believe they had found either Gul Damar Space Station or Jean Grey. Taking care, Rogue absorbed the powers of other mutants (Magneto, Gambit, Frenzy, Marvel Girl -Rachel Summers from Earth-811, Havok and Polaris) and touched the sword, opening a dimensional gateway that used the blade as a door to rescue the mutant.

(X-Men: Legacy I#260) - Rogue led a team effort to rescue Ariel, with Pixie (Megan Gwynn) carrying her back to Earth, where Hellion (Julian Keller) controlled the explosion and the fire with Marvel Girl's support. Dr. Nemesis and Dr. Rao then treated Ariel in an already-prepared trauma pod, ensuring her recovery (but, in the process, Rook'shir's sword's edge was blunted).

    Ariel then bought a new dress for herself using Rogue's American Express, without Rogue's permission.

    Fully recovered, Ariel teleported Rogue from Mutopia to Westchester during an X-Men schism.

(X-Men: Legacy I#270) - Rogue was apparently affiliated with the X-Men during the following Avengers-X-Men conflict: Rogue told Magik that she would call Ariel to teleport her back home from Verkhoyansk Mountains, Russia; however, Rogue later decided against it, instead snooping in Verkhoyansk.

(Wolverine and the X-Men#25) - Ariel was not a part of the Jean Grey School For Higher Learning faculty roster after that conflict.

Comments: Created by Jo Duffy and Kerry Gammill.

Ariel received profiles in the following Handbooks:

    In Fallen Angels I#3, Ariel claimed to not really understand the scientific foundations of her power, even if Warlock credited her with "sophisticated understanding of spacial manipulation"; in #5, she explained that "a good understanding of subjective physics" was, along with "the right hands" (which may mean a Coconut Grove native's), a requirement to use the power. Even if she adopts an airhead Valley Girl attitude, Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3 says Ariel has above-average intelligence and X-Men: Legacy I#230 shows Ariel as a lab assistant to Dr. Kavita Rao.

    Ariel was never seen with a traditional superhero uniform, instead wearing so-called stylish clothes that she especially cared about - like when she was surprised at the need of a belt to match her jacket (x-Men: Legacy #229), or when she wore Zanotti heels during an ill-fated mission (X-Men: Legacy #260). In her times with the Fallen Angels, she wore high boots at different heights (the left one reaching over her knee), ribbons tied to her legs, several bracelets and belts, a foulard, a halter top, star-shaped earrings, a lot of glitter and sunglasses that she refused to remove; this was typical fashion in her native world. Eccentrically, she focused in nail varnish and TV watching, and failed to refer to some people by their given names. Even her closest friends like Chance and Rogue found her frequently irritating. Still, Ariel was a surprisingly focused and loyal teammate for whatever team she felt she really belonged to.

    In X-Men: Legacy I#260, when the X-Men prepare to treat Ariel, Rogue mentions that a human body has ten trillion cells. Ariel is an alien from a different planet; her cell count would probably be different to an Earth-born human.

Profile by Skippy Farlstendoiro

Ariel should be distinguished from:

Ariel (Shakespeare character's inspiration)

(Fallen Angels I#7) - The male named Ariel was a native of the planet called the Coconut Grove and an ancestor of a female named Ariel, the later being a member of the Fallen Angels and later of the X-Men.

(Fallen Angels I#7 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update#3) - Like all the natives of the Coconut Grove, the male Ariel had space-bending abilities that allowed him to create teleportation gateways connecting two points in space, as long as he had a door-shaped access in both of them. Unlike other natives of his world, Ariel had extraordinary persuasion abilities that were inherited by the female Ariel; in her case, those were identified as a mutant power. The Coconut Grove society had failed to detect mutants in their world for millions of years. Whether male Ariel was a mutant or not, is still unconfirmed.

(Fallen Angels I#7 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1) - In Earth's 17th century, Ariel was a nonstop prankster who enjoyed using his powers on Earth to teleport people, pretending to make them appear and disappear, and to swindle them. He was eventually imprisoned by a witch in a tree - as the tree lacked any door, Ariel was unable to escape from it on his own. Ariel's feats and activities inspired writer William Shakespeare to create a character with that name in his comedy "The Tempest" (published c. 1610).

Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#1 claims that female Ariel was the only mutant of her species. This suggests that either male Ariel's skills were not a mutant power, or that male Ariel had passed away at that point. The second possibility is suggested in that same Handbook, which lists male Ariel as "presumed dead."

    The name Ariel was also used as an alias by several superhumans, most notably Katherine Pryde in certain realities. Likely, the inspiration to choose that pseudonym was the character in Shakespeare's play.
