Powers/Abilities: After undergoing Terrigenesis, Ash Minnick emerged with blue skin, pink eyes, long floppy ears, and a tail. No longer able to experience human emotions, Minnick, as Panacea, developed the ability to heal others to various effects, and the ability to sense the pain and medical struggles of others. In some cases, Panacea can completely heal someone, and in others nudge them toward healing. In other cases, Panacea can make the health struggles worse, pushing a person toward death, though she has only been seen to do this once and she deemed for humane reasons. Some problems she seems to inherently understand medically, and others she seems to need to study in detail.
Height: 5'8" (by approximation)
Weight: 145 lbs. (by approximation)
(All-New Inhumans#1 (fb) - BTS) - After undergoing Terrigenesis in Sydney, Australia, Ash Minnick emerged as a blue-skinned woman, and she realized she no longer seemed to process feelings.
(All-New Inhumans#1) - Ash was held by armed humans in Sydney and kept in a cage as they called her a freak unworthy of life. Crystal helped free Ash, who joined the Inhumans on their ship.
(All-New Inhumans#2 (fb) - BTS) - Ash discovered she had healing powers, and began using the name Panacea.
(All-New Inhumans#2) - As Crystal led a mission into Sin-Cong, Naja remained behind with Panacea and Grid to investigate mysterious energy sources from nearby buildings. They soon found a group of civilians who'd been mutated by radiation, a product of the Commissar's drive to create weapons for Hydra. Panacea assumed she could heal some of them, but they needed to keep searching for Inhumans instead.
(All-New Inhumans#3) - Naja, Grid, and Panacea received a directive from Crystal to look into a particular building, and Naja knocked out guards as Grid overwhelmed the security systems. Inside, they found mutated super-beings in cages, and Grid begged Panacea to help them. Panacea healed two of the mutates, and then killed the third with a brain aneurysm, unable to cure him. Naja, Flint, and Panacea soon saw that the Commissar and his armored soldiers had captured Crystal and Flint, and they went to war with the soldiers.
(All-New Inhumans#4) - Panacea stood by while the conflict wrapped up. When Flint was nearly killed with poison gas, Panacea healed him out of a sense of obligation, but she warned her teammates that she believed death and illness was the natural order of things, and that she would be more selective about using her gifts in the future.
(All-New Inhumans#5) - Panacea watched Gorgon train Jack, who sparred with machines and then Naja. Panacea continued talking about her lack of emotions as she assessed Gorgon's spinal damage. Jack managed to escape through a teleporter.
(All-New Inhumans#6) - Lockjaw teleported Gorgon, Naja, and Panacea to the Inhumans armory on the Moon, where they searched for Jack. Jack attacked with an energy rifle, refusing to surrender as he shot Gorgon, but he jumped into space and they caught him.
(All-New Inhumans#11) - Panacea saw Gorgon despairing over his son Petras, who was in medical stasis, and she volunteered to use her powers on him. When Gorgon worried that she might make a mistake, she realized that she had fully healed his spine recently and he just hadn't realized it. Panacea agreed to work on Petras slowly and carefully. Captain Swain and Panacea flirted, and Swain realized that her emotional manipulation powers wouldn't work on Panacea, and she felt this was perfect. They later held hands and let their tails intertwine.
(Inhumans Prime#1) - When Maximus was imprisoned and set for trial, no one realized that he had mentally controlled Black Bolt into switching places with him. Maximus then manipulated Panacea into keeping the prisoner (actually Black Bolt) asleep during his trial, when he was sentenced to prison and banishment. Panacea also heard Medusa step down from the throne and put Iso in charge.
(Royals#1) - Announcing that she was going on an extended mission into space, Captain Swain bid farewell to Panacea, who logically accepted that Swain needed to go; Panacea asked Swain not to die, saying she'd grown fond of her.
(Black Bolt#8) - When Black Bolt, Blinky, and Lockjaw arrived in the city, Panacea made sure to heal them from their injuries. When Panacea tried healing Black Bolt, she informed him that he still had access to his powers, but he had emotional pain blocking them. Black Bolt angrily slapped Panacea's hand away.
(Secret Warriors II#10 (fb) - BTS) - When Mr. Sinister and Dark Beast experimented on latent Inhuman children, Iso had Panacea tended to them.
(Secret Warriors II#11) - A large group of Inhumans, including Panacea, teleported to the Tower of Wisdom to battle Mr. Sinister and the Unhumans. After the battle, Iso had the Tower of Wisdom and Mr. Sinister's Terrigen research destroyed, determining a new future for the Inhumans.
(Royals#11) - Panacea found Swain mentally communing with her from across space, Swain's powers magnified by the Prima Materia. Swain felt lonely and expressed love for Panacea, who informed Swain that she couldn't experience feelings like Swain could but that it didn't make her love Swain less.(Inhumans: Judgment Day#1 (fb) - BTS) - Swain and the others returned to Earth, where Swain was reunited with Panacea. (Inhumans: Judgment Day#1) - Panacea examined Flint (who was partially encased in crystal after touching a Skyspear) and said that he was at peace, though Swain worried. Panacea then examined Maximus, hearing more details about the Prima Materia and the Progenitors. They soon joined with Medusa, Frank McGee, Reader (with Forey), Marvel Boy, and Crystal, and planned an attack on the Progenitors from the Astral Plane, which Reader helped them access with a reading.
