First Appearance: (Mentioned) Stryfe's Strike Files#1 (January, 1993); (seen) X-Men Unlimited I#1 (June, 1993)

Powers/Abilities: Siena Blaze has the mutant power to manipulate the electromagnetic energy of the planet, absorbing it into her body and then discharging it, which can result in environmental destruction depending on how strong the blast is. Siena can control how much energy she releases, discharging it in the form of destructive blasts of energy, to fly, or to create energy shields. Siena can also teleport to new locations across the planet. After depleting her own power, Siena needs time to recharge. For a time, she was controlled by Selene through the techno-organic virus after Siena was resurrected.

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 190 lbs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blonde

(Stryfe's Stryke File#1 - BTS) - Stryfe wrote a file about Siena Blaze and the threat she represented, as she put herself and the planet in danger every time she used her powers.

(X-Men Unlimited I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Siena Blaze's powers activated and did a tremendous amount of damage to property and environment. After studying her powers, Siena's father helped her realize that anytime she used her powers, she ran the risk of cracking open the ozone.

(Uncanny X-Men Annual I#17/2 (fb) - BTS) - Siena convinced Wallace Benton (a man she'd hooked up with) to commit a robbery in New Mexico with her, and he only agreed to do so when he realized she had mutant powers to protect them.

(Uncanny X-Men Annual I#17/2) - The policemen closed in on Siena and Wallace, and he demanded she use her powers, but she felt that it would only make things worse. Suddenly Trevor Fitzroy and Bantam opened a portal over their heads and immediately drained the life from Benton in order to open a secondary portal, this one pulling a transport car from the far future, and it crashed into the police cars. Siena caught a glance of her own future self aboard the transport as a prisoner, looking emaciated. Fitzroy, admitting he was from the future and knew Siena there, recruited Siena to join the Upstarts, a group that killed targeted mutants to achieve points.

(X-Men Unlimited I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Siena, wanting to score major points with the Upstarts, planned an attack on the leaders of the X-Men. She set up a station with scientists to monitor her powers, then she projected a massive blast when the X-Men (Professor X, Storm, Cyclops) flew overhead in their ship.

(X-Men Unlimited I#1) - After waking up in the snow and surveying the damage her powers had done, Siena returned to the scientists, wondering if she had killed the three X-Men or not. When the Gamesmaster informed Siena that the three X-Men were still alive in the area, she lashed out, destroying the facility and killing the scientists within. Siena got in a personal aircraft and went searching for the X-Men, soon finding them badly wounded. Siena stood against them, ready to kill them, but Professor X blocked her powers with his telepathy. Cyclops and Storm lashed out at Siena, but she absorbed their power and then planned to use her own powers to "ride the Earth's electro-magnetic field" across the planet, leaving behind a destructive wake that she hoped would kill the X-Men. Siena escaped, but the X-Men survived.

(Uncanny X-Men I#301 (fb) - BTS) - Even though the X-Men lived, Gamesmaster awarded Siena a few points just because of her lofty ambitions and risk-taking.

(Uncanny X-Men I#301) - Gamesmaster pulled Siena into a psychic meeting with the other members of the Upstarts, including Fitzroy, Shinobi Shaw, Fabian Cortez, and Graydon Creed, and he assigned them their next target: Forge of the X-Men.

(Excalibur I#72) - Siena was watching reruns of 90210 when Gamesmaster summoned her and assigned her to go to Muir Island and kill Moira MacTaggert, with the secondary mission of getting a copy of the DNA of Proteus, which he believed Moira had stored on the island. Siena used her powers on an oil rig, luring the team Excalibur away from Muir Island, then she attacked Moira directly. When Nightcrawler and Shadowcat attempted to teleport in, Siena's powers disrupted theirs, causing them to materialize in solid rock.

(Excalibur I#73) - Shadowcat saved Nightcrawler's life by phasing, then they attacked Siena, getting Moira to safety as Siena lashed out with her powers, destroying the room around her. Siena found the disc with the Proteus data as Moira held a gun on her, then Nightcrawler punched her. As Siena fired a massive power blast, Phoenix arrived just in time to redirect it, then she tried forcing Siena to experience the pain, mentally, that she was causing the planet, but Siena overwhelmed Phoenix and then escaped.

(Excalibur I#74) - Siena returned to Gamesmaster and his benefactor Mr. Sinister, who was furious that she hadn't retrieved the Proteus sample. Sinister was pleased when he learned that Siena had scratched Phoenix, putting DNA under her fingernails, and he forcibly took the sample from Siena.

(X-Force I#32 (fb) - BTS) - Siena captured Cannonball and Boomer and was almost disappointed when they proved easy to capture.

(X-Force I#32) - Siena attended a psychic meeting with the Upstarts held by Gamesmaster, who reviewed their points and accomplishments.

(New Warriors I#45 (fb)) _ Gamesmaster assigned the Upstarts to go after former members of the New Mutants and Hellions teams.

(New Warriors I#45) - Siena tried going after Moonstar and Empath, but Karma easily took over her mind, stopping her. Karma then forced Siena to appear to Gamesmaster, claiming that Moonstar, Empath, and Karma were captured, though they were only pretending to be knocked out.

(X-Force I#33 (fb) - BTS) - Karma kept Siena under her control for as long as she could.

(X-Force I#33) - Gamesmaster took control over Siena and activated her powers, knocking out Moonstar, Karma, Empath, Magma, and Cannonball.

(New Warriors I#46) - When the New Warriors, Empath, Karma, Moonstar, Magma, and X-Force attacked the Gamesmaster, Siena hit them with a heavy blast of their power, and they were narrowly saved by Speedball's powers, though the heroes all collapsed unconscious afterward. Later, the heroes defeated Gamesmaster.

(All-New Exiles: Infinity#1 (fb) - BTS) - Siena found a way to use an energy gun to channel her energies without damaging the environment. Siena received an invitation from the Mutant Liberation Force to come to an abandoned oil rig and meet them. She went, determined to kill whoever was there for more points with the Upstarts.

(All-New Exiles: Infinity#1) - Siena found Reaper waiting there and the two battled, with Siena using her gun, but Reaper destroyed it. Furious, Siena lashed out with a massive energy blast that somehow interacted with that of Firefox, a woman on an alternate Earth. A chasm of energy pulled Siena and Reaper to another reality, where they met Amber Hunt, 'Strike, Juggernaut, and Shuriken. After they became acquainted, they were attacked by dinosaurs, but Siena hit them with a blast, exposing them as robots. The strangers worked to form a camp together before Shuriken suggested they call themselves Exiles. Reaper, having gone off into the jungle, suddenly returned and revealed they were on a place called Gameworld. He used his scythe to form a connection point between Siena and Amber's powers, and the group soon disappeared, headed for another world.

(All-New Exiles#1) - Landing on the Ultra-Earth (where 'Strike, Amber, and Shuriken were from), the Exiles realized nearly a quarter of New York City had been destroyed. After battling the military, they fled. Siena, using her powers to propel herself through the air, shot many of them with blasts, disabling their weapons. The team rested at 'Strike's home, where Siena realized her power had been basically cut in half for reasons unknown, which meant she could use them without harming the environment. The Exiles realized a hit had been put out on them and that they were being blamed for the destruction of New York. Soon, they battled the monstrous Qune.

(All-New Exiles vs. X-Men#0) - Blaze and Reaper joined together in threatening Amber Hunt to use her powers to send them home, but a group of X-Men arrived on the alternate world, including Rogue, Gambit, Storm, Beast, and Iceman. Siena lashed out at the mutants with a burst of power, but soon the teams worked together to stop the demon Firewalker from passing through the open portal. When the battle concluded, the X-Men disappeared, leaving the Exiles behind on the Ultra-Earth.

(All-New Exiles#2) - After getting out of the shower, Siena dropped her towel in front of 'Strike, but he wasn't interested, focused on a mission instead. The team soon gathered to fight Hellblade (Jefferson Kotto).

(All-New Exiles#3) - Siena helped Reaper stay on his feet when Hellblade allied with the Exiles (soon joining the team), explaining how much of the world still blamed them for the deaths after the initial arrival in the Ultraverse. Shuriken knocked Amber Hunt out when her powers threatened to burn out of control, and Juggernaut lashed out, furious. Qune attacked again but Amber got in control of her powers and defeated Qune.

(Phoenix Resurrection: Revelations#1) - When Amber Hunt was taken over by the Phoenix Force, a number of super hero groups rushed in to try and contain her, including the Exiles, the X-Men, UltraForce, Solution, and Quattro, as well as solo operatives Night Man, Mantra, Gun Nut, Regina, and Tom Hawke. The Exiles sought to protect Amber, but the Phoenix soon left most of the operatives unconscious. Later, Amber repelled the Phoenix.

(All-New Exiles#4) - Juggernaut reported that Amber Hunt had gone off on her own, and the team went to find her, though Blaze grew annoyed with Reaper's misogyny on the way. The Exiles sparred with UltraForce before the two teams joined forces to defeat the attacking alien Progeny.

(All-New Exiles#5) - Siena went skiing with 'Strike, flirting with him. When Reaper nearly knocked her down, Siena vowed to make him pay. The demonic Harvest attacked and the team fought back. The alien Tradesmen intervened.

(Siren Special#1) - The Exiles sparred with Siren and realized people were still after them. Juggernaut soon disappeared, returning to his own Earth.

(All-New Exiles#6) - In new costumes, the Exiles went after Genie, the company that had been targeting them, and they battled the mutated denizens of Moloch when they attacked the Genie facility.

(All-New Exiles#7) - On a mission with the Exiles in the swamp, Siena panicked when caught in a flood of water and lashed out with her powers, accidentally hitting 'Strike. The monstrous Caiman attacked, but they soon ended up teaming up with Caiman, who was also on the run from Genie. They also teamed up with Lost Angel.

(All-New Exiles#8) - Siena and Reaper sparred with each other, wrecking the hotel where they were staying. Siena continued to flirt with 'Strike. Later, the team helped Elizabeth King escape the influence of the evil Maxis.

(All-New Exiles#9) - In a remote cabin, the Exiles held a team meeting before aiding Lonestar and Velvet Fist against the attacking forces of Aladdin. During the fight, Siena flirted with Lonestar and fought with Amber, who'd lashed out at her. Siena grew furious when she saw Velvet Fist flirting with 'Strike. Aladdin cancelled the powers of the Exiles, then attacked.

(All-New Exiles I#10) - With their powers still missing, the Exiles fought operatives from Aladdin, including Rocket and Blast, but Siena stayed away from the fight, not willing to put herself at risk. Obsessed with gaining Lonestar's attention, Siena sparred with Amber, who she considered a threat, but when Velvet Fist and Lonestar were knocked out, the Exiles realized that they'd been stealing their powers and manipulating their minds. 'Strike wondered if the team should disband since they couldn't get along. With their powers back, the Exiles worked together to defeat a monster unleashed from Velvet Fist's mind.

(All-New Exiles#11) - The Exiles returned to the blast site in New York City, determined to clear their name, and they ended up sparring with many Ultras, including Dirt Devil, Headknocker, Bonehammer, the Night Patrol, Glare, Hardwire, Wraith, the group TNTNT, Siren, Ripfire, and Ironclad. A fight with Maxis intensified and Siena was hit by a fascimile of her own power, knocking her out. The Exiles were defeated, left unconscious.

(Ultra Force II#12) - Siena woke up to see UltraForce, and she alerted them to the threat of Maxis, and Maxis was soon defeated.

(Ultraverse Unlimited#2) - The Tulkan Star Empire and the Alien Elite, the aliens responsible for the devastation in New York City (the one that the Exiles had been blamed for), revealed themselves as the culprits, and the Exiles joined UtraForce, Ironclad, Ripfire, and Siren in fighting back. During the fight, Siena lifted Black Knight above the skirmish only to be hit with a sonic scream from Aerie, which scrambled her senses, causing Siena to crash. Siena then downed Aerie with an electromagnetic blast. When the battle ended, Black Knight, Siena Blaze, and Reaper all returned to their Earth.

(Weapon X II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Siena was apprehended by the Weapon X program.

(Weapon X II#5) - Alongside other mutants, Siena was taken to Neverland, where she was kept, her powers cancelled, and guarded by Boxbots. Many mutants were put to death, including Siena.

(X-Force III#22 (fb) - BTS) - Siena was raised from the dead by Selene, who then controlled her actions.

(X-Force III#22) - Siena was forced to battle Namor. Selene was later defeated.


(Uncanny X-Men V#20 (fb) - BTS) - Feeling that the end of mutants was going to happen, Siena rejoined the Upstarts and planned an attack on the X-Men for fun. Her teammates included Shinobi Shaw, Fabian Cortez, and Fitzroy.

(Uncanny X-Men V#20) - The Upstarts attacked the X-Men (including Mirage, Magik, Multiple Man, Banshee, Cyclops, Havok, Juggernaut, and Hope Summers). Siena fired at Magik, but then Cyclops knocked Siena out with an optic blast.
